Down clothing specialist Feathered Friends is hoping to increase visibility in its manufacturing process after arming supervisors with real-time information while on the production floor.

The company selected the BlueCherry Shop Floor Control (SFC) app from CGS to help provide an accurate look into its factory operations to avoid holdups and bottlenecks, improve efficiency and ensure on-time product delivery.

In addition to real-time visibility into production information, the app will provide actionable intelligence from the application's smart data, enabling more timely, better-informed business decisions.

"We are proud to offer made-in-America products and required a solution that would give us an edge, increasing our growth margin and furthering our brand," said Peter Hickner, founder of Feathered Friends.

"The ability to utilise the solution via mobile device enables our managers and supervisors access to the production information they need anywhere, at any time – enabling them to make quicker, better-informed business decisions and ensure workflow efficiency."
