Flequently Asked Question
Quick answers to common questions about Twinforce.
Twinforce uses the data collected by the MES or ERP, which it imports to a NoSQL database, thus enabling synchronization of information across all connected tablets. It is an application designed to make ERP or MES management mobile and thus bring an additional degree of innovation within business processes. Let’s think about the operation of a construction site: thanks to the tablet one can move inside or outside and in the meantime activate work phases, summarize production times, and take parts from the warehouse. When there is availability of internet connection, Twinforce synchronizes the differences with the datacenter of the ERP or company MES without having to do anything. Conflict management due to lack of connectivity is thus resolved automatically.
Because we wanted software that could be used easily and intuitively in the enterprise. The tablet is an extremely handy portable tool, and the interface was designed by our User Experience experts to use immediately with no learning curve. Interacting with Twinforce is as simple as playing Playstation, without the need for tools such as a mouse and keyboard, and it lends itself to easy management by pre-selecting information to display based on the user profile. Moreover, thanks to this system, paper is completely eliminated: all information is available directly in the instrument library. Thus, assemblies are eliminated, it is no longer necessary to physically travel to other departments to retrieve the necessary information.
Twinforce has been battlefield tested: forgotten inside the CNC lathe and drowned in emulsified oil, pounded by van wheels and even ended up under the weight of forklifts… Twinforce is a MOLO17 software, which means it never crashes.
With a Twinforce license you are immediately given a user-matched tablet or smartphone, already configured through MDM and with rugged covers and protective films.
Twinforce connects to your management system through our GlueSync connector [link], which allows interoperability with Microsoft SQL Server databases, among the most widely used databases in management software like Oracle or DB2 (ex. AS/400 systems). We integrate new management systems with Twinforce every day: check out the complete list of compatible systems or ask your vendor to get in touch with us. We will be happy to create a new partnership.
Whose side are we on? Always on the side of the user. Twinforce is compatible with both iOS (thus the Apple world, both iPad tablets and iPhone smartphones) and the Android world.
You’ve never seen anyone use a production tool with such speed: all it takes is 2 opposable thumbs and you’re the champion of the plant, you don’t even have to run up and down to scan stage start barcodes, you just press play. Easy to use and quick to teach.
Offline-first!!! Twinforce works even when there is no network connection at all (even without an Internet network, yes). So my company’s data goes to the Cloud first and then all into the tablet? What if it gets stolen? Management data useful for workforce management is filtered and synchronized via an encrypted connection (SSL/TLS 1.3) with the Twinforce Cloud, stored up there securely on storage media with military encryption, then synchronized with mobile clients again via an encrypted connection and stored in the local database with symmetric encryption (AES 256). Pentagon-proof.
We are happy to form new partnerships with system integrators or ERP vendors: contact us to learn how Twinforce can integrate with your system and support new users in their daily lives.
