Why buy a starter solution package?

Shoestring’s starter solution packages** are designed to give companies an easy way to get started with digitalisation. They enable companies to build and deploy simple, low-cost digital solutions in their factory so that they can see how digitalisation benefits their business, building in-house digital skills along the way. 

Each starter solution package:

  • Can be built and deployed by non-technical staff
  • Is supported with a technical training and support programme, instructions, an online forum for problem solving
  • Facilitates peer-to-peer support as well as access to experts
  • Provides a detailed shopping list of the low-cost electronic components (all available online from major resellers)
  • Includes the software required to connect the components and deliver easy-to-understand dashboards.

** We are currently offering a special early adopter offer on a first come first served basis – £400 for a starter solution package (saving £400 on full price).

Choose a starter solution

The starter solutions used in each package are designed to provide a practical learning experience. Companies choose a solution that addresses one of their most pressing business needs, keeping employees engaged and invested in the activity. We currently offer training around two starter solutions, power monitoring and job location tracking, with more solutions coming soon.

Power monitoring (up to 50A)

Solves questions such as:

  • Which equipment uses the most energy?
  • Are machines using power out-of-hours (phantom load)?
  • Which parts, products or operations have higher energy usage?
  • Would new, more efficient machines save power and money?

Provides company benefits:

  • Reduces energy usage and bills
  • Contributes to sustainability goals
  • Enables more accurate reporting on the carbon footprint of parts / products

Is simple to setup and use:

  • Connect current clamp to the equipment’s power cable.
  • Data from the clamp transmits to an easy-to-read live dashboard.
  • The dashboard gives access to real-time and historic current, power and energy usage

Job location tracking

Solves questions such as:

  • Where is a particular job right now?
  • How many jobs are waiting at a location or are in production, how long they been there?
  • Has a job been delayed or forgotten at a location?

Potential benefits:

  • Quickly identify and address misplaced or delayed jobs
  • Spend less time finding jobs
  • Provide customers with instant updates on job progress

Is simple to setup and use:

  • Set up two scanners located in two different locations.
  • Data from each scanner transmits to an easy-to-read live dashboard.
  • The dashboard shows where each job was last seen and how long it has been in this location.
