We're excited to share the launch of the TilliT technology business! TilliT forms part of an expansion for SAGE Group to deliver Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and associated IoT hardware solutions for customers across the broader manufacturing industry.
Smart decision-making a closer reality with TilliT
2019 LNS Research states that 95% of Australian manufacturers are small to medium on a global scale and that 75% of their personnel and manufacturing equipment has no cloud-connectivity or detailed analytics or true performance.
It is for this reason that IoT and AI-enabled technologies such as TilliT are crucial to enable smart decision-making, protect manufacturing profitability and deliver the opportunity for all manufacturers, large or small, to thrive on a global stage.
The TilliT SaaS and IoT solution is a powerful, yet simple to implement, digital factory suite tailored to manufacturers of all sizes. It provides an integrated way to plan, execute and analyze manufacturing processes orchestrating people, machines, material and tasks.
It provides visibility of asset and manufacturing line performance, directs the execution of events and orchestrates activities necessary to manufacture any type of finished good. It also handles quality checks, production scheduling and digital workflow with a focus on real-time visibility.
TilliT was incubated within the industry, with this hands-on learning driving the development of an entirely new approach to digitalizing production processes and removing paper from the shop floor.
SAGE Group Managing Director and CEO Adrian Fahey sees this as an exciting step in the SAGE company strategy and one that meets continued demand for agile software solutions and lightweight sensors in line with the accelerating transition to Industry 4.0.
“SAGE continues to invest in the evolution of our offering to clients, operating across the sectors that are shaping the world, to accelerate their digitalization journey, “ said Mr Fahey.
“TilliT will be a standalone organization within the SAGE Group, bringing together two existing software products - TilliT Digital Operations and the Ailytic AI Scheduler to enable us to continue to focus on the development of smart manufacturing solutions.”
TilliT co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Rafael Amaral has decades of experience in understanding firsthand the challenges facing manufacturers when looking to increase efficiency, reduce costs and optimise operations. Rafael will drive an accelerated roadmap to build on the current released tech platform.
Ailytic AI Scheduler is a modern, flexible and powerful tool for optimizing detailed schedules in food and beverage, plastics, steel manufacture, electronics and other discrete industries. The tool is already used by diverse range of Australian and global manufacturers.
Ailytic founder James Balzary, will head up the TilliT business in the role of Chief Executive Officer.
“This is an exciting step for the team which will allow us to enter new markets, build new channel relationships and ultimately service current and future clients with an expanding portfolio of innovative software technologies” James said.
“The newly expanded TilliT platform can operate standalone between the ERP and the Machine Control layer to digitalize the operation, or co-exist with existing tools in place due to its flexibility and ease of deployment as a cloud solution."
While the teams are coming together to incorporate this expanded offering, it is business as usual without disruption for Ailytic and TilliT customers.
