Good vibrations for packaging manufacturer uptime

Posted by Amy Thibault on Nov 29, 2022 11:45:00 AM

 

Over the past few years there has been an increase for packaging manufacturing all over the globe; many of us now order food to be delivered that comes in a special container to keep it warm (or cold). We order all sorts of things from Amazon, Lazada, Alibaba, or Otto; but it all comes in a special package to help it arrive safely in one piece, and the list goes on and on and continues to grow in popularity everyday.

But where does all that packaging come from to get us our goods in great condition without them looking like they were dragged through the mud?

This is where Packaging manufacturers come into the light; they create all the awesome packaging to be sure we get our orders in perfect condition; no matter what it is, or how far it traveled to get to us. These are the companies that make other companies shine since there is few other disappointments as receiving damaged goods as the end user/buyer.

Find the real value of your operations

Posted by Amy Thibault on Nov 15, 2022 11:15:00 AM

 

I'm betting it's safe to say you've had enough of the endless stream of singular reports piling on your desk! With a single report from one end of the operation paper clipped to another report from the middle, you’re constantly sorting everything manually, or hand-entering it into several separate databases. Maybe some of your reports are from yesterday and others are from last week. Maybe the databases are scattered on computers or servers in several locations.

How can you make good (or any) business decisions or locate issues when everything is scattered, missing, in the wrong pile, stapled to the wrong report or accidentally tossed out?

Without a unified report you may not be able to see how a small issue in one area can lead to a big need down the line—until it’s too late. You need a single source for sensor data up and down the line, as it happens?

Increase industrial cybersecurity with two-factor authentication

Posted by Amy Thibault on Nov 8, 2022 11:37:00 AM

 

Unfortunately, data breach notifications are in the news cycle almost everyday now and are fiercely impacting every industry. When it’s someone else’s company; you may have a moment of empathy for all they're about to go through as people, a company and financially—but, it quickly becomes a major crisis when a security breach impacts your company, or you personally.

When that news comes out, the temptation is to think, “Hope that doesn’t happen to us.” Hope is nice, but action is always so much better. But before you act, you’re concerned that upping your security game will create two obstacles. One is that something like two-factor authentication (2FA) will be a pain to install and train on, and second is that it will make access harder for your own people. And a third question is, “Will doing all that actually help?”

Two-factor authentication for cyber safety

Posted by Amy Thibault on Sep 1, 2022 11:08:36 AM

 

Cyber security is a significant sustainability challenge for every industry today.

Cyber attacks come in many forms and almost every week we read about another company that has had data become compromised, either from ransomware in a corporation or banking data captured from a retailer. How do you defend against those kinds of attacks while giving your people easy, but secure access to the site or asset data they need in order to efficiently make the best business decisions?

The math of cloud mobility

Posted by Amy Thibault on May 17, 2022 11:33:00 AM

 

 

Maybe you’re looking toward digital transformation but you’re reluctant to move past the old SCADA system on a server in the utility room. You have that one for data monitoring, a separate one for accounting, and another for remote well control. You get different reports from every place, and your department heads spend days in the plot of 1984’s Irreconcilable Differences.

When you do the math for all the benefits of switching to a cloud platform built for industrial use, and then multiply it by the benefit of just how mobile it is and even how it can quickly help all of your systems play nicely together it adds up to a strong return and equals into a much smoother running operation, with much more efficient processes and happier department heads.
