Manufacturing today utilizes highly complex, advanced technologies, including robotics, automation, critical safety systems, and industrial IT hardware and software.
When production equipment fails due to this advanced technology, manufacturers lose on average of $30k to $50k an hour with some industries like automotive losing over $1.3m per hour. During these critical moments, manufactures face three problems:
finding specialized, skilled support resources that are available immediately
troubleshooting increasingly complex, interconnected systems
navigating B2B procurement processes to quickly order and pay for emergency services
Volt480 takes a different approach to the large and growing industrial automation services marketplace by pairing our on-demand, crowdsourced services platform with machine learning and efficient payment processing technology. We aim to help manufacturers recover from downtime in half the time and at half the cost.
With the high cost of unplanned downtime, we recognize that every minute counts. We aim to connect you immediately to a highly-skilled automation expert local to your facility.
B2B procurement processes and tools can be difficult to navigate for both the system integrator and manufacturer. We're bringing the efficiency and simplicity of modern tools to your plant operations to help you save time.
Automation vendors and machine builders can extend the reach of their field service offering. Leverage our on-demand platform to dynamically scale your resource bench without the heavy burden of hiring a large workforce.
Manufacturers can use our real-time filtering algorithm to find the right resource with the right skills that's available right now.
Unlike the consumer market with services like Angie's List and Yelp, manufacturing has limited transparency to B2B services. Our platform enables manufacturers to choose system integrators that invest in training, build domain expertise, and are dedicated to customer service.
We aim to help both manufacturers and system integrators be more profitable by creating a more efficient marketplace. Manufacturers can access emergency services from underutilized resources, and system integrators can improve utilization of their billable resources.
Today's manufacturing lines are complex, interconnect systems comprised of hundreds of smart components. Finding the solution to your problem buried in technical manuals is difficult and time consuming. Our machine learning platform interprets your issue and recommends troubleshooting steps.
