You are the production of the planet, those who create or build, refining raw materials or turning parts to products. As techies, we may not know our way around a factory floor, but we do know about tireless precision & creation of solutions from a bin of parts & hard work.
Uptime is life. An hour offline hurts in your industry like no other, with materials moving & bands of staff getting hourly, you don't have time for faults, it's all gotta go on.
Here is where we find common ground, for over 50 years we've driven the systems behind the builders, being the line that never breaks down, providing services so steady that ideally your staff won't notice us. They have stuff to do.
Being behind the scenes means being unseen, so we often can't disclose the exact work we do or name-drop all of our clients. However, we can tell you ways we've discovered to help clients in your industry, with the solutions that drive efficiency & progress in a rapidly changing world.
Supplies make or break any operation, from trucks running on time, targets being met at production line stages, warehouses overfilling, or lack of coffee causing a serious case of the Mondays. Really sorry about that one.
Modern ERP systems are basically a consolidated replacement for all the other systems many companies have built up over the years, plus a way to make most paperwork redundant, & automate the easy stuff. From staffing to materials movement, expenses to compliance audits, everything can exist in a single platform, with tool views & access customized for each dept.
Vehicle assembly lines aren't just conveyor belts & people with power tools, there are unique applications running the complex systems behind production, QC, safety, & robotics. The software is far from off-the-shelf, & product re-tooling often means code needs upgrades to suit the changes coming down the line.
Down the line, get it?
These are short term needs, but require developers who are hands on, among your own engineers, handling specialized keyboard voodoo for unique apps. How do you even get such rare skillsets for short term projects? You augment.
Our staff augmentation services pull from our own ranks, the employee pools of our global partner network, & that of our parent company, Kyndryl. That last one is the largest technology services provider on the planet by a long shot, & their top talent is available for limited engagements to drive your projects, to reality.
With increasing threats from ransomware attacks, the monthly news littered with high profile energy clients, manufacturers, & even hospitals locked out of their data & network, the time to bolt the door is now.
Don't even think about it pony-face.
Typically, most clients have a handle on defence, until the day they don't. Specialized threat analysts & programmers to stay on top of the latest digital strikes are a costly proposition.
We've partnered with Microsoft to figure this out, with over 3500 full time defence experts on hand to create & maintain the world's premier security platform & operations centre, that any company can join. We are your Canadian ticket to the fortress, encompassing data, core applications, full network defence, & complete to-the-moment ongoing backups of the databases that make you tick.
With many of Canada's O&G clients in flood prone places like Calgary, or covering diverse landscapes where anything can happen, we even cover threats from the physical world. Our DRaaS solution allows entire data centres to flicker online in the cloud, resuming all connections & operations in the event a physical site goes offline for any reason.
Electronics manufacturers face difficult stages of communication, from the engineers to the factory floor, getting messages to the right people gets tricky.
Trying to get images & media of that thing that just doesn't look right coming out of the CNC, to the right QC dept. Emailing a link for a video call & wondering if HR is going to check it. Warming your hands on the printer spitting out 50 copies of that company memo destined for a corkboard near you. These are all annoyances that should be in the past.
Teams, by Microsoft, has your back. One solution, agnostic to any device from workstation to smartphone. All team members can access company feeds & announcements, look up all your people by dept or role, along with instant messaging, file sharing, & voice or video calling.
Teams is good for teams, who knew?
When precision metal manufacturers in aviation need to audit thousands of heavy load components with x-ray, microscopic surface fracture scans, & acronyms for inspections that tie the tongue, the task has traditionally been relegated to weary staff eyes & long hours looking for flaws.
Early attempts at machine vision automation through the 2000s left a lot to be desired, with frequent false-positives & software regularly missing more nuanced issues that humans would easily spot. This left them unworthy of final inspections, & often more headache than benefit.
There is a better way. We let the experts train the machine, not to just spot large obvious flaws, but by giving us a stack of scans that are good, and a stack that are bad. Clusters of powerful cloud supercomputers learn what's ok & what's not, forming their own concepts of how to spot fissures & hidden residual gasses. Our experts follow the baby AI's lessons and give it context to its' discoveries, teaching it what is acceptable, what needs human intervention, & what gets rejected.
In an industry where product failure has catastrophic consequences, we keep your people focused on the serious issues, leaving the rest to us.
