Your business. Tracked.

Real-time data collection and tracking of employees, machines, equipment and jobs.

Shop floor data, integrated with your ERP.

Data collection. Actionable insight.

Frontline managers need complete visibility and control of the shop floor to prevent problems. Collecting data by conventional methods can be complicated, time-consuming and expensive.

LYNQ includes shop floor data collection capability (SFDC) from your employees and equipment with options to automatically connect your machines in order to read data without manual inputs, helping to digitalise your factory (Industry 4.0).

Move away from paper and excel based methods, to a reliable data collection solution with world-class analytics. Providing you with the insight you need to achieve continuous improvement goals.

Process improvement

You cannot improve what you aren’t tracking. Collect data both on and off the shop floor from your employees or equipment in real-time using a “stopwatch” style of recording. Data is used to calculate overall labour effectiveness (OLE) and overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). High level dashboard views keep management informed in real-time of status and performance of orders, products, employees and equipment.

Monitor resources

At a glance live view of your employees, what their current status is, what they are working on, and how they are performing during their shift. Use status indicators to access their workbench to help with clocking and other management issues. View your equipment, what the current live status is, what jobs they are running, and how they are performing. Drill down into each equipment or employee cards for a more detailed view. Full audit trails and record of issues.

Job status

Review open jobs to check their status. Use progress bars to gain visibility of hours booked, materials issued and overall progress at a glance. Drill down to view specific job details including attached documents and issues recorded. Includes daily clock hours reconciliation and option to create custom management reports using pivot tables.

Analytics

Edit, delete, add and approve all transactions generated via the workbench or entered from timesheets. Automated, scheduled posting of approved transactions to your ERP system for financial analysis. Manual “sync now” option also available. Export to payroll systems (optional). Analytics associated with employee availability (uptime/downtime) for management purposes.
