Company is presented with the international award for innovative technology providers
PROXIA Software AG based in Ebersberg near Munich has been nominated for the annual international “10 Best Technology Solution Providers of 2020” award sponsored by Industry Era magazine. The MES manufacturer was praised for its new innovative XI Gateway technology and the unique Action Manager solution.
The annual “10 Best Technology Solutions Providers of 2020” award presented by US-based Industry Era magazine focuses on the areas of technology, vision, philosophy, track record, uniqueness of companies and their solutions. Beyond this, the award also evaluates innovative products, unique solutions, and the revolutionary visions set out by participants.
PROXIA Software AG specialises in development and implementation of MES software (Manufacturing Execution System) for optimisation of production processes. The “Best Technology Solution Provider” has enjoyed its success thanks to a technologically innovative solution called XI Gateway, which enables vertical and horizontal networking of diverse machine pools and plant. PROXIA networks all machines quickly, easily, and reliably with the MES system using the latest OPC-UA technology; this paves the way for companies to make plug and play use of machine data for availability and performance analyses, visualisations, and evaluations. “Our XI Gateway solution is the central “data provider” for the Industry 4.0 production environment, and combines a standardised data model (MTConnect) with secure data transfer (OPC-UA),” explains PROXIA CEO, Julia Klingspor.
The Best Technology Solution Provider from Ebersberg has also tasted success with the MES solution because individual requirements in almost every industry and company are covered as a standard feature. Any customer can learn about the PROXIA MES software as a collective package as updates are permanently integrated into the software standard. The product therefore expands in parallel with market requirements, which in the end benefits each individual user according to the collective principle. “We are very proud of the fact that we provide customers from very specific sectors with a tailored yet future-proof solution,” stresses Julia Klingspor. However, there are also topics which impact on almost all customers, including
- the “Amazonification” of production, i.e. short delivery lead times following the “order today, delivery tomorrow” principle.
- Rising numbers of product variants, smaller batch sizes, and greater customisation of items
- Tremendous price pressure due to market transparency and increasing international competition
- Strict customer requirements of product quality
Taking all this on board, PROXIA has designed a brand new innovative solution for relevant production key indicators and data as the foundation of a continuous improvement process (CIP). What’s more, they have integrated a unique action management element into their MES solution in order to define goal-oriented actions, and monitor the implementation and effectiveness of these actions through the use of software.
