EZ Plant technology is a real hit!

EZ Plant
Here's a real valuable excercise in app technology: EZ Plant, from Global Systems Group. It may not get your biceps in shape, but it can improve the health of your business.

This system monitors your factory's machine activity to help you maintain proper production levels. You can access equipped machines from anywhere in the world via the internet or your mobile device. Depending on your settings you can monitor run-time, piece counts, and other info that can help you know how your equipment is running 24 hours a day.

Improving your business doesn't have to be a workout. See how EZ Plant can help you every day at Interzum 2013.

Worker Productivity in U.S. Declines, Pushing Up Labor Costs
The productivity of U.S. workers fell more than projected in the fourth quarter as the economy shrank, pushing labor expenses up and showing companies are approaching the limit of how much efficiency they can wring from employees. - excerpt from Bloomberg article

Don't be this headline.

Worker productivity, in it's purest form, is a balance between employee count and finished product volume. GSG will be demonstrating multi-tasking equipment at Interzum that helps you get more production from your staff.

New machines like this simple automated border measuring device, the PBM-50, can replace manual peg board measuring stations and measure border at a rate up to 30cm/second!

New GSG technology is enabling greater productivity in nearly every area of mattress manufacturing. See it all at the GSG booth, Stand C020, in Hall 9, at Interzum.
