WORKERBASE is a platform to optimize manual work in Industry4.0. It has been created after 18 months of research at the global R&D unit of a large conglomerate company active in the fields of industry, energy and infrastructure solutions. We have spent many days in factories talking to managers and workers and observing how work is performed today. We have identified several areas in which manual work processes could be improved and bundled our research results into the WORKERBASE platform.
Our founding team has a combined experience of more than 30 years in IT, manufacturing, mobile and product development.
Modern software architecture
Our services run on a modern event-based software architecture that allows for integration of any existing system.
Hardware and Software Platform
