When AutoLean first launched, we went after the opportunity of connecting manufacturers to mobile applications. This vision was to allow anyone in any size business to make better decisions real-time. By increasing mobility on the floor we could enable improvements in productivity, profitability, and safety at all levels in the organization. This principle has led us to selling hundreds of thousands of apps on the App Store, and partnering with multiple Fortune 100 & 500 clients. It has been an exciting journey for us, and we are even more excited to be working on the next chapter of our company story. Mobile applications have allowed us to be closer to our processes than ever before, and now is the time for us to turn on true proximity and location-awareness capabilities.
In the next couple weeks, AutoLean will be releasing a suite of Bluetooth low-energy devices that will improve the experience of our existing app users, as well as enable our enterprise clients to be more aware and connected to the manufacturing processes around them. Our new line will enable proximity & location awareness in nearly all manufacturing environments.
We plan on making an announcement in the next couple weeks but would like to extend to our followers the first opportunity to take part of this new platform. Our proximity and location-aware enabling devices will provide the following set of features:
Apple iBeacon license
2 Year battery life (for all battery powered models)
Up to 70 meter range (for most models)
Indoor, Outdoor, and Explosion-Proof enclosures with multiple mounting options
iOS apps to management and ease of deployment
Affordable prices and concessions on bulk ordering

Introducing entourage.io! This past year we built technology to better understand our social network connections. After realizing that our core technology had purpose and could be packaged we decided to build an app.
Today’s blog post will feature a company called Strength of Nature Global LLC based out of Savannah, Georgia. Strength of Nature “is the choice manufacturer of innovative hair care solutions that specifically address the critical hair care needs, styling, and desires for Consumers of Color.” The company has created 11 different brands to specifically target individual needs. They also have outreach programs that benefit civic centers, churchs, salons, and hair schools.
William Kersh is a Production Supervisor and Mechanic working in the Kitting Department for Strength of Nature. He uses AutoLean’s OEE Monitor app exclusively to track the efficiency of his machines. He discovered the app while searching the App Store. William is currently compiling a month’s worth of data and then plans to use that information to make changes as needed. His reports are already showing positive improvements.
Your company can benefit from OEE Monitor by tracking uptime, downtime, productivity and product quality. Compare working shifts, and different production lines to identify opportunities for improvement. OEE Monitor is also a great tool to track positive trends in your kaizen events.

A cornerstone principle of AutoLean is ‘Customer First’. Ensuring our internal and external customer needs are communicated, understood, and delivered upon are essential in establishing and maintaining 100% customer satisfaction. To help grow and nurture our customer relationships even further, we regularly follow-up with existing clients to ensure their product is meeting their expectations. Many times we hear awesome stories about how even our most fundamental apps which cost less than $1, can have a huge impact on an organization.
On upcoming blog entries AutoLean will be featuring companies that utilize our iPhone and iPad applications. These posts will highlight the uses of our mobile apps, as well as showcase some of the diverse clientele AutoLean is privileged to work with. If your company would be interested in being represented on this blog, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
