    Why do manufacturers choose friendlyway?

With our comprehensive Cloud Platform, proprietary hardware, and a partner network, we offer a complete solution tailored to your needs and integrated with all the relevant systems.

    We collaborate with the client at all stages, from the requirements analysis to onboarding and post-delivery support, as we care about each project’s contribution to the client’s long-term success in manufacturing workforce management.

    What is friendlyway Cloud Platform?

    friendlyway Cloud Platform is a set of software modules and integrations we have developed over the years to streamline and automate our clients’ operations. It allows us to implement the following core solutions mitigating multiple pain points across business teams and scenarios:

    • Visitor management
    • Digital signage
    • Badging, compliance, and access management
    • Self-service kiosk solutions
    • Wayfinding and visitor guidance
    • Workforce management
    What are the benefits of workforce management software for manufacturing?

    Workforce management software can play a crucial role in helping manufacturing companies:

    • Control labor costs by accurately tracking employee time and attendance.
    • Optimize automated scheduling processes.
    • Enhance visibility into workforce performance, thus enabling better resource allocation and more informed decisions.
    • Improve employee satisfaction and productivity by providing self-service capabilities.
    • Ensure compliance with labor laws and regulations.
    Why is manufacturing time-tracking and scheduling software important?

    Manual time-tracking and scheduling processes are prone to errors, leading to inefficient payroll and production planning. Software automates these processes, accurately capturing data and reducing the risk of such errors.

    Moreover, time-tracking software helps ensure compliance with strict labor regulations regarding work hours, breaks, absence, and overtime by applying relevant rules automatically and generating various reports.

    Finally, scheduling software with forecasting tools can help proactively plan staffing needs under changing production goals and fluctuating demands.
