The wearable people management solution
Manage, locate and protect your workers
Manufacturing sites are challenging places to manage. Keeping your people working efficiently is important for production, but ensuring these people are properly connected and informed is difficult in such a noisy and hands-on environment. Health and safety is also a key concern – failure to follow correct process can lead to injury, or even death. Sense helps manufacturing sites better manage, locate, protect and equip their workers.
Simplify people management
Managing hundreds or thousands of staff across multiple production lines requires team leaders to know who is stationed where, understand shift gaps, and initiate effective communications with floor staff and management – often in busy and even dangerous environments. Sense helps shift managers to simplify people management, thanks to the discreet and durable Sense Badge that workers can clip to their belt or slip into their pocket.
Staff push their fingerprint onto their Sense Badge when they arrive on site – their identity is verified, their location is registered, the badge clocks them in and their supervisor is informed
Once signed in, the Sense Badge can download each worker’s task lists, workstations or duties for the day – so they instantly know who they’re working with, where they need to be and when
The wearable Sense Badge gives team leaders an instant way to notify team members of critical safety information or shift updates, or to re-allocate the tasks of somebody who is off sick
Managers can see where each worker is stationed in real-time – either to make sure everybody is where they need to be, or to find the closest qualified worker if a critical station is vacant
Sense gives your head office a direct line of communication to the people running your manufacturing sites, either for sending company news, or for feedback forms and surveys
Create a safer, happier workplace
Manufacturing sites often have many vehicles and heavy machinery operating, as well as dangerous chemicals in constant use. Sense helps you protect the people who work at your manufacturing sites against many of these risks, and helps your supervisors respond faster when there’s an emergency.
Set up geofenced work zones to assign workers to particular areas – our real-time location technology will alert a supervisor if somebody enters a zone without the correct permissions
SOS and fall detection
React quickly to emergencies – Sense Badges come with automatic fall detection, and an SOS panic button, which both broadcast the wearer’s precise location to the closest available helper
Each Sense Badge can monitor it external environment, providing a real-time measure of toxins, gases, air quality, temperature and humidity, so you can maintain optimum working conditions
Track the location and status of machinery or vehicles like forklift trucks, to ensure only qualified personnel can check them out, and to alert workers if a moving vehicle is in close proximity
Automatically remind staff to take a break if they’ve been at their stations too long, send motivational messages, or launch real-time surveys to assess people’s mood and wellbeing
Embrace leaner ways of working
With Sense, organisations can connect departments and production lines to help them work faster, smarter, and reduce non-value tasks. Sense also joins the dots between teams to enable real-time updates on task completion, location of materials, and staff status.
Search by skill
Staff are often multi-skilled, allowing them to work across different stations or production lines. Sense lets managers search for staff with particular skills, for fast redeployment during busy shifts
Increase output and improve the accuracy of your forecasts by checking production lines are staffed with the optimum number of people, and ensuring they are working towards the correct targets
Improve your processes and fix issues by identifying which operators or teams were on shift when investigating quality issues, in order to deliver corrective training or revise station checklists
Find the most efficient routes between storage facilities and production lines – Sense lets you track the movement of people, vehicles, trolleys and equipment to identify where bottlenecks form
Navigate to equipment
Attach SenseTags to mobile equipment or machinery to help workers find them faster – and provide real-time wayfinding to help staff navigate new sites, complex facilities or unfamiliar areas
Reduce equipment downtime by letting staff instantly scan and report broken machinery – and schedule preventative maintenance checks to ensure all equipment remains active and compliant
Protect inventory with verified audit trails
Production lines and warehouses often have large volumes of inventory flowing through them, and items can sometimes go missing. These losses hurt the productivity of your teams, but also can be a stress point for relations between staff and management. Sense authenticates each worker’s identity, and provides a clear time and location history for easy auditing.
The Sense Badge requires both a pin code and a fingerprint, ensuring only the authenticated wearer can use the device
Failed login alerts
All login attempts are logged with a time and location stamp, and failed attempts trigger alerts to the relevant supervisor
Zones can be geofenced and restricted by skill, seniority or name, with unauthorised entries triggering a security alert
Create safer logistic processes
Logistics at manufacturing sites and distribution centres can represent many safety challenges to staff working depending on the types of materials and products being transported.
