Many customers in the process industry already utilise our MES solution successfully. Some customers have only implemented a few of the available functionalities, such as Planning and Definition or Data Collection and Track & Trace. Others utilise everything that Visual Link Software has to offer to optimise their processes.
Whether a production site uses just a few or all modules, our customers agree on one thing; the software engineers at Visual Link know what they are doing and they are intimately familiar with the product, the production process and everything surrounding it. With virtually no downtime, they are able to implement the solution and realise a smooth transition.

At Royal van Wijhe Verf, thousands of kilograms of raw materials - all packaged in paper bags - were used by the factory every single day.

Among other things, Hellebrekers IA was asked to take care of the management and visualisation of the refilling of the raw materials and the emptying of the silos.
Protifarm produces sustainable food ingredients made from farmed insects. These are used in e.g. baking products and meat substitutes. Although working with live "raw materials” calls for a slightly different approach, Visual Link's team was able to optimise this company's production process as well.
