Workflow specialises in assisting New Zealand and Australian manufacturing companies improve productivity, through the supply of cost effective, automated, real time production data tracking tools and the application of lean thinking processes.
The reality is that manufacturing costs are increasing, and if you are not improving your productivity at the same or faster rate, then you are going backwards.
What sets Workflow apart from many other companies is that workflow doesn’t just sell you something and walk away leaving the rest up to you. Training, guidance, and coaching are available to put in place the processes and systems that you need to use the information in a structured way to drive actions and continuous improvement. From simple training sessions right through to a full Lean implementation journey, workflow can assist you.
There is no point having great data on how your process is running and not using it. That is a waste of time and money.
The XL800 Visual Productivity Appliance is a remarkably cost effective visual scoreboard that tracks your production performance, measuring down time and overall efficiency. Access to automated productivity and efficiency monitoring is now within reach of all sized production environments, not just the large multi nationals.
The XL800 “bolts on” to any existing lines or process and immediately delivers real-time manufacturing performance data, including:
• Automatic down time detection including small stops.
• Tracks overall production efficiency, down-time reasons, shift/job performance, OEE, changeovers, and can provide over 100 key performance indicators.
• Provides visual display that motivates your operators to peak performance.
• Snaps into your network for instant web access.
• Plug-and-play simplicity with built-in data collection and reporting. Up and running in minutes.
• A complete solution in one hardware appliance – no software to install.
Workflow has installations in over 40 diverse manufacturing companies across Australia and NZ.

What are the customers saying?
“A challenge is convincing the signatories of Capex about the value this product would bring. So we started with a trial unit. It was easy to use and integrate, generated a lot of interest, and real quantifiable benefits were demonstrated. We have seen our OEE lift 10% in 3 months! We liked the trial unit, bought it, and have since got another one”
– Operations Manager Powder & Industrial Coatings
“2nd worst performing machine, with a 12% improvement is now the 2nd best. Great results to say the least”
– Continuous Improvement Manager, Transfer Injection Moulding
“We really like the downtime tracking and reason codes for the downtime. We always thought we knew what our downtime was, but now we really know, and the top 5 downtime reasons are great for the focus of the improvement teams and what areas need attention”
– Production Manager – Wine bottling
