Auto-Count® 4D (AC4D) enables your business to benefit from faster speeds, greater accuracy, and higher quality. When combined with a dynamic scheduling and resource optimization solution, you will benefit from a true “closed loop” system. Auto-Count 4D can enables you to:
- Collect and record up-to-the-minute data via DMI to stay on top of maintenance schedules, troubleshoot potential problems, and reduce waste
- Streamline job status updates, track downtime, and identify needs while reducing time spent on internal communications
- Review production data anywhere, at any time, from any device to help you make timely, cost-effective decisions
We did our research and really liked how user-friendly AC4D is to learn and operate and how easily we could train our operators to use it. Visually, AC4D is a very clean system that makes it more intuitive to use. It’s a very innovative platform.
Auto-Count helps us achieve an amazing component balance by weighing makeready and run waste – in real time – and subtracting it from the total paper used. With Auto-Count, we know exactly where we are with waste and can continue to work to reduce it.
All of our equipment is fine-tuned to be as productive as possible because of the accuracy of the data we collect with Auto-Count.
