“Hana led the successful transition of IESA to S/4HANA in 5 months, her drive, focus, commitment to total quality were critical to the success – the appropriate blend of being very demanding but fair. The project teams success has been recognised in the industry and the personal commitment that Hana demonstrated was 1st class leadership. She has subsequently led innovative approaches to Agile delivery on a SAP platform – not a trivial task. It was a pleasure to be part of a successful team under her dedicated and committed leadership”

“Hana has the ability to analyse complex issues, use continuous improvement / software development skills to lock down onto a solution and then deliver – and do that over and over again. Her experience of operational environments blended with process re-engineering and technology ensure she can get her arms around large daunting requirements and external suppliers to keep the most challenging projects on track.

So what's your Industry 4.0 Roadmap?

We support businesses to create a smart plan of digital quick win opportunities; saving TIME, COST and driving SALES. The first step in working together is to arrange your Digital Baseline Review where we identify opportunities for quick win improvements.


Our industry respected Digital Baseline Review is the perfect place to start your journey, to establish your baseline position on the Digital Scale. HanaTech is working with several Manufacturing associations and their members, to collate some invaluable benchmark data to build a picture of the industry average.

The review covers 4 Key areas:

customer centricHow easy is it for your Customers to trade with you? Customer expectations continue to evolve towards REAL TIME responses and they expect great experiences, transparency of information and service personalisation. We help companies to simplify and streamline their Customer Journey, which offers a more user-friendly experience. We make sure you can retain existing customers AND make new ones, which is key to keeping up with the competition.

Underneath your Customer Journey there must be robust and efficient operational processes. Through expertise in Lean Continuous Improvement, we help companies to maximise productivity and reduce non value add. From order processing, production planning, raw materials handling, machine efficiency, finished stock, despatch to back office processes, we have a suite of simple and affordable bespoke tech solutions that will TRANSFORM your processes.

YOU CAN’T MANAGE WHAT YOU CAN’T MEASURE – Using Digital Process Improvement we provide companies with access to powerful REAL TIME data, KPIs and insight, to enable them to take proactive control of their costs and performance. We help companies to better utilise internal and external data sources, through system integration methods, digital dashboard displays with automated notifications, triggers and alerts. We improve manual data collection methods, and recommend DIGITAL quick wins such as the use of sensors.

In a continually increasing Digital World, in order to stay ahead of the competition companies must strive to AUTOMATE and INNOVATE, using where possible the latest Technology. We help you define a clear company vision and strategy for Industry 4.0 in the form of a Digital Transformation ROADMAP, and provide Change Management support to help create a company culture and workforce that is engaged, trained, and committed to moving from Traditional Factory towards Factory of the Future, one quick win at a time…
