Personal care outsource manufacturing venture provides its customers with real-time streaming video of their production runs and real-time production and inventory data via a secure Web portal.
Coppell, Texas – February 22, 2007 – ProCore Labs believes in the “glass factory” concept of providing its customers an unobstructed view of its entire operation. ProCore Labs’ customers confirm that full-motion video and real-time production data delivered through a secure Web portal will allow them to control costs and monitor product quality.
ProCore Labs recently opened the doors on the first of five manufacturing facilities north of Dallas, Texas. The company invested heavily in technology so that it can offer its customers a clear view of the manufacturing of their products all the way from scanned receiving documents to real-time inventory and production data to cameras on the factory floor that deliver high quality streaming video of their products being filled.
According to Hendrix Bodden, VP of Sales and Marketing, “Our customers tell us one of their biggest problems is not knowing when their products will be manufactured. Our enterprise resource planning system gives us the capability to tightly manage every step of the manufacturing process, including purchase order confirmation, production schedule, release and delivery dates as well as any problems such as shortages of components or raw materials. We deliver that information to our customers via a secure Web portal that they can access 24x7.”
ProCore Labs’ Factory Cam was developed in partnership with a global provider of security monitoring technology. Nearly 20 cameras are strategically placed around ProCore Labs’ nearly 100,000 square foot facility to capture full-motion video of its manufacturing processes. These images are made available to ProCore Labs’ customers on both a real-time and time-shifted basis.
According to AGS Labs, one of ProCore Labs’ customers, “Being able to watch my products being manufactured gives me as much confidence as if I was doing my own manufacturing. I can watch the video any time from anywhere. ProCore Labs Factory Cam truly brings contract manufacturing into the new millennium.”
