User Reviews of Infor MES

Submitted on March 3rd, 2020 by Nikhil Padhi

Shopfloor-Online MES empowers the machines with intelligence so they know what they have to do.

The MES system needed to fit into the overall design, be able to support quick fire implementation, be within budget and easy to learn. We chose Shopfoor-Online from Lighthouse Systems, which we already used in other plants, as it met these requirements well.

Automation is often associated with job losses. But at Ensanada, thanks to a robust training programme, there was practically no job loss as workers were redeployed to new lines
