All Around Excellence

With real time collection and reporting of data, todays problems are solvable today. From better understanding of downtime, to speed and quality opportunities, Vorne provides an ability for decision makers to have the information they need to improve processes and performance. After initial installation in one of our division's facilities, and demonstrated success in performance and capability, we are working to expand utilization to support process improvement in multiple locations.

Pros

The ease of use by front line operators and real time tracking capabilities along with customizable reporting options make a world of difference in our efforts to move from actual state to target state in production processes and continuous improvement initiatives.”

Cons

Constant Communication and open dialogue between our organization and the team at Vorne make overcoming subtle issues easy, and learning continuous. There is nothing to dislike about this software.

Reasons for Choosing XL Productivity Appliance

We chose Vorne based on referral from other facilities inside of our organization.

XL makes a big difference

Strategically, XL helps to organize the improvement efforts through the "top losses" report.

Pros

XL provides a clear visibility with real-time performance monitoring of all lines, even when you are out of the factory. The new alerting function is so useful. It warns you when performance go down. It is easy to configure and easy to set to any production environment. The reporting is so powerful and can be customized for different set of KPIs.

Cons

I hope that the help videos will cover all the features in the future.

Response from Vorne Industries

Replied September 2019

Thank you Hossam - I'm glad you like our alerting functionality. Next month we'll start adding the option to send automated emails based on how the production process is running. We'll make sure to keep you in the loop!

Plug and Play Goodness!!!

Loyal customer due to: ease of instalation, ease of use and ultimate power for positive impacts. Both my plants are all connected with XL.

Pros

Opened the box, made one call to the customer service department and my factory that has been controlled via pen and paper since its inception was online in two days and streaming data straight to my phone. I saw KPIs that I had never seen before and identified huge oportunities where we thought everythgin was under control.

Cons

All my complaints/suggestions were settled (and more) in the newest software version that was recently released.

Thank you Ben - I love that you immediately used XL to shine a light on your losses. Nicely done!

So Simple

Pros

Easy to roll out, learn to use, build own dashboards, with unbeatable long term value for money. Fully self contained.

Cons

Doesnt do everything that some other bigger more integrated products do, but this doesnt try to, Just focusses on its core tasks, of monitoring the production line

Reasons for Choosing XL Productivity Appliance

Did 90% of what other much more expensive products do, no ongoing software licence fees, could get it up and running within days, to start improving productivity.

Thank you Nigel - we work very hard to make XL the simplest and easiest way to monitor any manufacturing process.

XL800 Major installation

With an installation program spanning some 18 months and 14 sites our team found the software interface easy to understand and deply.

Pros

We particularly like the ease of use and deployment and when you are considering an installation of over 300 lines this has to be a key factor

Cons

Nothing springs to mind any minor misunderstanding which were normally on our part were quickly resolved.

Response from Vorne Industries

Quantify your opportunities and work on the most important first

Vorne is an ideal productivity software for quick install that almost anyone could do. The software has obviously taken input from customers for many years as it has nearly anything a production environment would want to see. With the Vorne data we were able to quickly determine the most important down time events to correct and improve productivity drastically.

Pros

The software is very well made and intuitive. Ease of set up, reports, and understanding logic is truly amazing.

Cons

Would love to be able to cycle count multiple parts running at the same time. But even without this still a fantastic package.

Reasons for Choosing XL Productivity Appliance

Best value and tech support for this type of product.
