Success Story

"We couldn't afford to get this wrong. Lextech made sure we got it right."

SKF industrial's app shaved 70% off a core workflow time.

They have over 46,000 employees in 140 countries.

The Problem

SKF had a ball bearing inspection process at the tail end of manufacturing.

1

The factory-base inspectors recorded inspections on paper forms attached to clipboards.

2

After a full day of inspections, they would transfer the data from paper to reporting software on their laptops or desktop computer.

3

This additional work would spill into their evenings at home.

4

They needed a solution that was mobile, where data could be submitted directly to their reporting software, eliminating inefficiencies.

The Solution

Lextech developed an intuitive app to replace the paper-based inspection process. It integrated picture recording ability and annotation features, and eliminated double entry by sending data directly from the app used in the factory to the reporting software.

ROA (Return on App)

First, a 30 minute inspection now takes 9 minutes, a 70%-time savings.

Second, the inspection reporting process formerly took days and impacted their ability to sell products, but now they can make decisions in real time.

Third, the app has eliminated the need for take home reporting transcription and has significantly improved the lives of employees by giving them more time with their families in the evenings.

What they said

"I have many people that ask us about our app and process. We show them [how it works], and tell them, 'You can't not do this. You need to capture this data. It's organized data.' That's pure power. It does all the work for you."
