Group of businesswomen on the rooftop holding paper cups laughing

Today on the Women and Manufacturing Podcast, we talk about how the right software systems can greatly improve productivity. We are joined by Deb Geiger, the VP of global marketing at Aegis Software. Founded in 1997 by two manufacturing engineers, Aegis has over 20 years of experience providing world-class software to customers around the globe, spanning more than 2200 factories sites across the electronics, medical, automotive, military, and aerospace industries. Today Deb introduces us to the truly unique and highly adaptive manufacturing operations management platform that Aegis supplies. Through their FactoryLogix system, they provide industry 4.0 capabilities out of the box for manufacturers of all sizes, without requiring armies of engineers to customize that system for agility and adaptability. Listening in, you’ll hear how this software differs from an ERP system, the types of data their ontological data system produces, and how it contextualizes data in a meaningful way. Find out how the right software can help your company with regulatory compliance, greatly minimize the impact of a recall, enable a high level of personalization for the demands of your customers, and greatly enhance workforce productivity.
