EME Hydraulic is a family-owned business specialised in supplying hydraulic components to customers in the industrial manufacturing sector. The company has been around for almost 90 years and has been doing fine with manual scheduling, but the owners decided a few years ago to digitalize the company to keep quality, profitability and customer satisfaction at a high level.
An important step toward digitalization was to take production scheduling from paper and whiteboards to the ROB-EX digital platform. Susanne Provstgaard, investor in the company, says about the timing of the decision:
“To be honest, we were at a point of distress. We were forced to upgrade to digital scheduling because we were about to lose the big picture – but we also knew that sooner or later we would have to take that step and digitize the scheduling because we wanted to make our processes more efficient and allocate time to other tasks than overseeing the production.”
“It was really great that we went live with ROB-EX at the time, we did, as we were super busy. If we’ve had to do it all manually, we might had lost sight of it. And we can see now that ROB-EX is the perfect solution for us,” she explains.
