What you get from using digital Andon

Shorter response times
Tasks get assigned to the right person at the right time based on configurable business rules. This skill-based distribution reduces response times drastically.
No more multiple people going after the same issue
Workload between service staff is automatically distributed. Notifications are only sent to relevant people.
Clear and consistent reporting
Andon calls can provide detailed information for precise issue reporting, exceeding conventional push buttons, such as 'Missing material', 'Amount: 50', 'Type: Broken shafts', and 'Charge: 2364'.
Fully integrated digital environment

Example workflow

The Workerbase platform is an event driven system, that allows to map any kind of workflow in a simple 3 step process.
Event Source
Events can be captured from a wide array of sources. They can originate from machine data connected to the system, from actions of the staff or be timer based. The event sources are freely extendable with new system connectors or even more complex functions.
Conditions
When an event occurs, a range of conditions have to be met in order for an action to get triggered. The conditions can be constructed using simple AND/OR logic and a wide range of data points such a user’s location, previous events’ data or machine data.
Actions
Workerbase supports a wide range of actions once an even gets triggered, for example: start a new task for a worker or a group of workers. The task is then sent to the staff based on conditions such as people’s location, skill, availability or area of responsibility. Workerbase sends data back to other systems, sends emails, writes to a database and executes any user-defined functionality (serverless functions).
