Connected Digital Distancing™

Shift Changes

To minimize person-to-person interactions between shifts, shift changes need to be carefully managed. Webalo digitizes the shift handover process, capturing key KPIs directly from the data sources and enabling the shift team to add pictures, videos and notes. With viewing available on mobile, desktop, and large screen displays, Webalo digitally supports the handover from one shift to another, minimizing person-to-person interactions and reducing downtime.

Paper-based Forms

Webalo eliminates paper by digitizing checklists, forms and workflows, improving health and safety, accelerating productivity and enhancing plant operating efficiency.

Production Schedules

Ensuring the plant is always operating on the right production schedule is a key operating requirement for businesses. Webalo integrates with production planning back end systems to get the right schedule into the right hands.

Receiving & "Permitting" Interactions

Ensuring secure access to the plant, minimizing external vendor plant movement, and eliminating paperwork are critical requirements in today’s operating environment. Webalo’s Connected Digital Distancing™ technology digitizes plant entry (bill of lading), materials receiving, plant paperwork, and ERP (SAP IM, etc.) reconciliations.

Operational Visibility

Real-time visibility of the status of the workforce, as well as of the broader plant and its machinery, is critical to maintaining operations. Webalo’s real-time Control Tower views allow for mobile, desktop, and large screen displays, dashboards, KPIs, and reports.

Enabling Remote Work

Your management team needs to be able to operate remotely. Webalo’s native mobile platform provides secure, scalable, actionable and personalized access to the applications and data sources that the individual user needs. With Webalo, users can access their data and real-time plant operating information without having to use a VPN or navigate through multiple menus and screens to find what they need.
