How Does Spindle Work?
Spindle pulls together islands of information from around your plant and communicates previously untracked metrics of your equipment and labor force with Spindle's cloud based software. Having easy and quick access to data in your plant that’s stored in the cloud enables you to receive up to the second information on the metrics that matter most to your operations success.
How Does Spindle Add Value to Everyone in the Organization?
Spindle’s software provides executive teams with the information they need to make informed decisions that previously have been made void of data.
- Where are areas that we can operate more efficiently?
- Do we need to buy a new piece of equipment?
- How can we standardize best practices and procedures throughout the entire organization?
- How accurate are the numbers we use to feed our KPI’s?
Spindle addresses each of these questions by automating the collection of data (minimizing exposure to human error) and displays the data in intuitive dashboards that executive teams can gain insight into equipment and labor efficiencies.
“You can’t manage what you can’t measure”. With Spindle, everything is measured.

Creating an environment where employees know exactly how they are performing against what is expected of them is a constant challenge, but when done correctly it becomes the primary ingredient for improving productivity. Spindle accurately captures real-time performance data and displays the results to employees using easy to interpret shapes. This on the spot feedback empowers employees to hold themselves accountable and know exactly where they stand against their performance goals. We’ve found simply adding this visual feedback leads to an increase in productivity by 5-10%!
Who We Are
An ancient Greek parable states, "The fox knows many things, but the Hedgehog knows one BIG thing”. The fox attempts many different strategies (sneaking, pouncing, running, playing dead) to catch the hedgehog. After each attempt, he walks away with spines stuck in his nose, defeated. The hedgehog does one thing perfectly well: defending itself.
