SHEA Global partners with Smart Attend to Deliver Industry-Leading Smart Manufacturing Platform

TORONTO, ON –  SHEA Global and Smart Attend are pleased to announce a strategic new partnership. Together, the two innovative brands have developed a new Smart Manufacturing platform called SMART Auto that aims to change the face of the automotive industry with smart manufacturing technology.

Built on a proprietary framework between Smart Attend’s IIOT-based production monitoring system and SHEA Global’s Dynamics ERP system, SMART Auto offers auto manufacturers a fully pre-configured ERP solution preloaded with over 1,000 optimized business process scenarios, allowing implementation time to be reduced by up to 70% in comparison to most other large-scale ERP systems. Each SMART Auto process has been designed and validated by industry and application experts, ensuring the most efficient and effective way of completing processes in an automotive manufacturing environment.

“This partnership brings together two brands that believe in tackling the biggest industry issues head-on through smart technology solutions,” says Max Preston, GM for Smart Attend. “SMART Auto is the culmination of years of work from both companies and will allow auto and auto part manufacturers to rapidly increase their operating efficiency while reducing production time across the business.”

A key element of the SMART Auto system is the ability to rapidly deploy across business functions and even legacy machinery. Designed to work closely with Smart Attend’s preferred partner solutions, SMART Auto with integrated MES can be up and running in as little as 8 weeks for rapid turnkey deployment across business units and even locations.

“We pride ourselves on our steadfast dedication to engineering and learning. We are proud of our ability to develop hardware, engineer software, and partner with industry leaders who make us a better service provider,” adds Preston. “SHEA Global represents an important milestone in Smart Attend’s journey, and we are immensely excited about what the future holds for automotive manufacturing.”
