Vice President, John McCurdy worked for over 10 years for the Southwire Company in process improvement and lean manufacturing where he was responsible for such initiatives as; scrap reduction, 5-s,  production process improvements , shop floor efficiencies, quality systems and bringing connected devices to the shop floor .

Together, the two principles bring over 25 years of experience in software, consulting, management and lean manufacturing experience.

“We saw a growing need for rapidly developed software in manufacturing. Our solutions are agile and scalable and can be implemented in a matter of weeks or months, not years. We fill a gap between legacy systems and SAP. Using tablets and other mobile devices as input and monitoring methods allows for data to be collected in real-time on the shop floor and our robust backend lets management monitor that data in real time”

“Besides working; I like to watch movies, read books, travel and play my pedal steel guitar with the other “old guys” in my band.”

“I try to spend the majority of my free time with my kids and family. I also enjoy a nice weekend on the lake or working in the yard. If time allows I like to read a good book or watch the occasional movie.”
