eschbach Responds to an Urgent Need for Increased, Safe Manufacture of Medicines, Plastic, and Food During the COVID-19 Crisis
In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, global software developer eschbach today announced that it has created new guidelines for how companies in the pharmaceutical, chemical, food processing, power and utility industries can use its software solutions to keep production going efficiently and safely. Specifically, risks of shift-to-shift contamination can be significantly reduced by switching to virtual shift handovers and reducing personal visits to sites by supporting remote teams to work efficiently around the clock, across the globe. In addition to creating new guidelines, eschbach has retained Dr. Andy Brazier, a seasoned human factors and process safety expert, to help its customers optimize their operations during the COVID-19 crisis.
"We have always focused on solutions for team communication in production operations," explains Andreas Eschbach, CEO of eschbach. "With the advent of this global pandemic, companies have had to adapt very quickly and our solutions—including our Shiftconnector interactive shift handover solution—have helped numerous customers overcome this challenge with rapid response, virtual shift handovers and cloud-based information sharing."
