“I've found the system really easy to use, with only a few clicks to record my jobs and time. It's a great improvement on our old paper-based system as I can use a barcode scanner and all the information is automatically linked. Being able to look at the latest packaging specs in the same place is a real time saver.”

We implemented the TimeLog App at Aurubis UK, which works with their existing MRP system to provide real time shop floor data. In phase 1 of the project, we recreated their existing solutions to be more bespoke and suit their business needs. For phase 2, we are working together to enhance and improve functionality.

The solution includes features such as daily checks, and the ability to record digital test readings towards creating their paperless shop floor vision. We worked with the team to create an ease of usability, which is key to providing efficiency.

Lastly, we rolled out by testing with champion users first, then from the feedback stage we adjusted until the solution was perfect. HanaTech now provides a weekly check in for ongoing support and new ideas/innovations: A great client reference site that has lead to an ongoing, valued relationship.

Benefits gained:

✅ Real Time Production Tracking

✅ Daily H&S Operator Checks

✅ Accurate, Real-time Data for Reporting

✅ Minimum of 10 hours a week saved for shopfloor and admin staff!

Our experience has been excellent, we had a complex technical request and HanaTech were able to translate. We're impressed with the agile way of working and quick response time. Our ongoing relationship has been going really well, with a smooth continual workflow established. We would full recommend working with HanaTech, as we value our strategic partner relationship.

i2 stated a few unique things about working with HanaTech; not only do they provide the technical expertise, they understand the experience of working with their clients to make the product even better. 

For the project, we agreed what development was required for each 2 week sprint using Kanban boards for ease of communication. We’ve been rolling out small but impactful changes every 2 weeks so that it gives users chance to provide feedback. Working in this way has helped bring the users along the journey at their own pace.

HanaTech now provides ongoing support with a minimum of 1 sprint a month and a continuous improvement relationship that we value highly.

Benefits gained:

✅ Improved User Experience

✅ Access to Real-time Data 

✅ Reduced Admin Time

"Working with HanaTech makes life easy. Great work, great support and always on hand to make the process fast and efficient. The balance was just right, advised when we needed advising but listened when needed to. The team thought the final design ticked all the boxes for our somewhat loose brief! It looked fantastic and will be unique in the market space we are attempting to grow in. We would 100% recommend!"

From paper-based job cards transformed to digital, the business gained WIP visibility on the factory floor with a much more mobile approach.

“Working with HanaTech has enabled us to question and change inefficient practices, those methods done the same way because they have always been done that way, into opportunities for greater efficiency, less duplication, which will repeat time and again on our bottom-line.”

We implemented the Digital Job Card at Alpha, transforming the facility from manual/paper based to digital, innovative and user friendly. The business used traditional log sheets along with excel spreadsheets, whiteboard production planning and manual data processes which was time consuming and unproductive.

Benefits gained:

✅ Real Time Production Tracking

✅ Automated Customer Updates

✅ Back Office Efficiency
