In the automotive industry, OEMs rely heavily on a carefully vetted supply chain of tiered suppliers to provide critical components on time and within spec. Whether you are a Tier 3 supplier processing raw materials, a Tier 2 supplier producing a myriad of individual components, or a Tier 1 supplier providing finished goods or sub-assemblies directly to the OEM themselves, it is critical you fulfill your role seamlessly to remain a preferred supplier.

In an industry with tight margins and a low tolerance for delays, it should come as no surprise that Vorne has been invited to speak at numerous events as OEE experts in the automotive industry. Further, Vorne XL is a required tool and manufacturing aid with which to ensure full visibility and OTD in many automotive factories.

Other benefits of XL that customers love include no software to install, no servers to maintain, no recurring fees, and no contracts. Instead you get unlimited users, free technical support, a 3-year warranty, and free software updates. All in an inexpensive, off-the-shelf product.
