Altizon and HMS Partner to Offer Free First Line Analysis of CPG Manufacturing Processes

Companies Showcase Combined Manufacturing Process Optimization Strengths at Industry of Things World USA, March 12-13, in San Diego, CA


To help small to mid-sized consumer packaged goods (CPG) manufacturers stay competitive with larger-sized enterprises, Altizon Inc. and HMS Networks today announced a partnership to offer a free First Line Analysis that helps improve, modernize and optimize a company’s manufacturing process cost-effectively and in a timely fashion.

The Altizon/HMS First Line Analysis includes a two-hour consultation for one of a manufacturer’s production lines and delivers recommendations on an affordable and effective manufacturing optimization solution. The suggested solution, designed to improve process visibility, measurable key performance indicators (KPIs) and production costs, will use data collection gateways from HMS and Altizon’s Datonis Manufacturing Intelligence (MInt) to combine manufacturing product and process data into a single repository to deliver actionable insight in less than 30 days.

“Small to mid-size manufacturers typically just don’t have the budget to justify investment in a quality improvement program,” said Vinay Nathan, CEO of Altizon. “With our First Line Analysis, we are offering low margin CPG manufacturers the opportunity for process improvement that produces results that can be scaled to achieve further benefits and justify investment.”

According to Kevin Knake, General Manager of HMS Networks Americas, “Time is money, and  Altizon/HMS’s First Line Analysis limits the time investment from a manufacturer to less than 40 hours, while delivering a complete manufacturing optimization solution in under 30 days that will level the playing field for small and mid-sized CPG manufacturers.”
