FreePoint Surpasses $45 Million Client Dollars Saved

It is with great pride that we announce FreePoint Technologies has officially saved our clients more than forty-five million dollars (See the live counter). Providing our clients with better insight into their production processes has enabled them to increase efficiency as well as profitability, resulting in immense cost savings. To commemorate such a massive milestone, we wanted to look back on what got us to this point.

We started FreePoint with a simple idea: to connect people to machines, regardless of age—in order to help manufacturers prosper. In this pursuit, we have pioneered a method of non-invasively installing equipment that gives manufacturers more control over their process. By helping better connect people to their machines, we have done more than just save our clients money. In addition, we have also helped them recover more than eleven million minutes of valuable production time.

We have always been about building connections— between people, as well as machines. As we surpass forty-five million dollars saved, we want to thank everybody who has connected with us along the way. We could not have reached this milestone without your continued support and commitment.

Fifty million, here we come!

FreePoint Featured in CIO Applications Top 10 Manufacturing Solution Providers

Top 10 Digital Manufacturing Solution Providers 2019

FreePoint Technologies is proud to announce that we have been featured in CIO Applications’ Top 10 Digital Manufacturing Solution Providers.

Our Senior Vice President, John Traynor, sat down with CIO Applications to discuss how FreePoint differentiates itself while addressing the needs of manufacturers and ensuring the security of their data.

Referencing our ShiftWorx Platform, John explained how we “enable operators to monitor machine performance in real time and document any shortcomings with the click of a button or the tap of a screen”, while maintaining a lower cost than most competitors. As the article outlines, the ShiftWorx platform is installed non-invasively and can take as little as 30 minutes to set up, making it easy to retrofit onto any machine, and keeping implementation costs low.

By avoiding physical connections between ShiftWorx and the machines, FreePoint can mitigate the risk of cyber-attacks:

“FreePoint’s non- invasive solution involves using sensors instead of attaching hardware to a programmable logic controller (PLC). The solution does not interfere with machine operations nor is it a vector for cyber-attacks on the machinery.”
