Lighthouse Systems are delighted to announce that they are Finalist at the Gatwick Diamond Business Awards, 2017, in the category “International Business of the Year”.
In the last 5 years, Lighthouse Systems has substantially grown through the continued collaboration with our existing customers on one hand, and the on-boarding of new customers and larger MES/MOM projects on the other. This was made possible by a successful development strategy, underpinned by our continued investment in our people, processes, and technology.
In that period, the Lighthouse office team has grown by 20% in the USA, whilst our office space in Singapore has doubled to accommodate growth in the Asia Pacific region. We have opened an office in France and created a satellite office in the Nordic region. The year 2016 saw further investments in developing our presence in the Middle East. In regions where we are a not directly present, we have continued to develop partnerships with local MES software integrators, such as in Israel, the Netherlands, and South-Africa.
Some of the recent implementations of Shopfloor-Online MES include projects for a French cosmetics packaging company in Mexico, a world-class food and beverage company in New-Zealand, a large privately owned German automotive firm in the USA, already using Shopfloor-Online MES at 19 of their factories worldwide.
From a product perspective, the breadth of functionalities of the manufacturing execution system Shopfloor-Online has been expanded further with the addition of plant maintenance, energy management and workflow modules.
Lighthouse Systems, which had already pioneered MES as a web-based application, is now working on a new version of Shopfloor-Online that is fully browser-independent, opening new possibilities for manufacturers to operate the MES application over the full range of devices, PC, tablet and mobiles, on any operating system.
“We are very pleased our efforts are being recognised by the region where we are head-quartered. These are exciting times for Lighthouse Systems and the MES market. We look forward to servicing manufacturers who strive for world-class operations even better in the coming year with Shopfloor-Online,” says Paul Barber, Director.
