Covestro Deploys Shiftconnector Globally

Global software developer eschbach announced today that Covestro has successfully deployed eschbach’s Shiftconnector solution across more than 40 plants worldwide and has plans to add 50 more plants across the globe by the end of 2019. U.S. sites include plants in Baytown, Texas, Newark, Ohio, and South Deerfield, Massachusetts. Covestro  is using Shiftconnector as part of its digitization initiative to improve shift handover throughout the company.

Once the solution is fully deployed, 8,000 production plant users will use it to perform their daily tasks and support safe and effective shift operations. Covestro's digitalization team recognized the clear advantage of providing a digital solution for collecting production data and performing shift handovers: empowering employees at production facilities. "The key advantage of Shiftconnector is to digitize communication and documentation in production," explains Andreas Eschbach, CEO of eschbach. "We have repeatedly heard from Shiftconnector users that a great advantage lies in the simple, continuous recording of tasks to make all relevant information immediately available during shift changeovers, promoting efficiency and safety."
