Frequently Asked Questions
What are the differences between Vorne and SensrTrx?
At its core, Vorne is much more simplistic than SensrTrx. It provides manufacturers with the ability to get insight into what’s happening in the plant but does not provide the same level of capabilities.
With Vorne, manufacturers can count products, calculate yield, understand cycle times, compare good versus bad products, and record downtime. It’s a great starting point for those who have nothing and want to get rid of Excel and pen and paper, but often, manufacturers will grow out of the product.
There will still be manual reporting required to fill the gaps. Vorne doesn’t integrate with scheduling. It doesn’t collect process data. It doesn’t help with automated end-of-shift reporting or alerting. There isn’t a mobile app.
At its core, Vorne is designed to calculate and understand OEE, unlike SensrTrx which in addition to calculating OEE offers a complete and robust manufacturing productivity system from data collection to dashboard.
What industries does each software focus on?
Both Vorne and SensrTrx focus on the manufacturing industry, specifically within the discrete manufacturing vertical. However, keep in mind that Vorne does not work well for manufacturers with large amounts of manual assembly operations.
The systems will apply to virtually any manufacturing environment, but as we mentioned above, manufacturers often outgrow Vorne when they want something more comprehensive with better visibility.
Should I choose SensrTrx or Vorne?
This is a decision that should be aligned with the goals you want to achieve.
If you are a manufacturer who doesn’t have any productivity software in the plant and solely relies on manual data collection and reporting, Vorne may be a good option. It is a simplistic system that can get you started. You’ll collect data like downtime, throughput, cycle time, and changeovers. This will provide you with the answers to:
- How much product am I making?
- Am I close to my ideal cycle time?
- How much scrap did I have?
You will know what’s happening in the plant and where you could make improvements.
On the other hand, if you’re ready to make the leap into full visibility, SensrTrx may be the better option. The solution is cloud-based so you’re able to access reports and dashboards from anywhere, at any time, even on a mobile app. You’ll not only get visibility and an understanding of OEE, but:
- Production planning and scheduling
- Quality measurements
- Line configuration and productivity
- Predictive monitoring and preventive maintenance
- Real-time analytics from anywhere, including mobile and tablet apps
- Automatic reporting and alerts
- Data collection from anything, including machines, sensors, or operators
With SensrTrx, you can stop problems as they happen, increase productivity, and improve efficiency.
We understand you likely will want to compare the two even more, especially from an unbiased source. Below is a link to Capterra’s review that also includes reviews from users of both Vorne and SensrTrx.
How do I know which software is going to be better for my needs?
This is a highly personalized question. In all honesty, the better platform is going to be the one that meets your needs. We get that may not be the most helpful answer, but we don’t want to tell you to choose one over the other without first understanding the goals you want to accomplish. Below are additional resources to help you understand SensrTrx specifically. If you have other questions, we highly recommend you schedule a time to chat with our team of manufacturing productivity experts.
And in favor of full transparency, we recommend you do the same with Vorne. Collect all of the information you need to understand the specifics of each platform. Then, you’ll be able to decide whether Vorne vs. SensrTrx is going to better fulfill your needs.
The Top 5 Reasons Why Manufacturers Choose SensrTrx
SensrTrx is purpose-built to provide visibility into the plant, in real-time. These 5 reasons are why SensrTrx sets itself apart from other manufacturing software solutions.
Collect data via wireless sensors, machine PLCs, or directly from operators on the line via manual data collection.
Production planning and scheduling gives you the flexibility to plan, track, and understand where you stand, in real-time.
Collect process data and detect anomalies. Get notice of irregular changes, such as a change in temperature or vibration on a machine.
Recieve push notifications and never let unplanned downtime or performance losses go unnoticed or unaddressed again.
Layout and model a production, getting information on every station or the line as a whole, in a single view.
