EVERBRIDGE INDUSTRY FOCUS

Manufacturing

Protect People, Equipment, and Production

Severe weather, natural and human-induced disasters, hazardous materials incidents, supply chain disruptions and equipment and technology failures and all have one thing in common for manufacturers: they all result in money lost to unplanned downtime, reduced factory utilization rates, lost revenue, and even employees put at risk. 

Customer Perspective: Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits

“We were looking for a system that allowed us to have a universal and enterprise approach, and the system we found in Everbridge allowed use to do that.”

– Renee Welsh, Sr Director Facilities

Manufacturing Use Cases

Keep Employees Safe

Natural and human-induced threats and potentially hazardous environments can put your most valuable assets – your employees – at risk. You need to able to assess events, locate the people that need help and those that can help, and act quickly to get and keep your people out of harm’s way – and account for each employee’s safety.

Critical Equipment Failures

Equipment failures, IT failures and human error are the top three causes of unplanned manufacturing downtime – leading to hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars lost per year. When experts or teams need to be identified and rallied to address the situation, every minute saved by automating communications and ensuring the right people are alerted and begin resolving the issue as fast as possible minimizes the costs of these critical events.

“We can dynamically locate employees and visitors to deliver communication based on location.  We have a clear understanding of whether they are going to be at a location, where they are today, or where they will be tomorrow.”

– Bhavesh Patel, Sr. Director, Security Operations & Technology
