We’ve made Parsable more powerful with Applets for Systems, more dynamic with Input Triggers, and easier to use with a more streamlined user interface.
In a new “Data in Depth” podcast, we discuss how data – if done right – can unlock incredible levels of productivity, quality and safety.
Top performers are used to succeeding, but the manufacturing industry has roadblocks infringing on their STEM talent, making these careers a weak sell.
The U.S. Army needs to demonstrate that it is a viable career path for the modern, digital-first generation.
On our 6th birthday, we reflect on our milestones and double-down on our mission to empower today’s deskless industrial workers with tomorrow’s digital tools.
We recently hosted a webinar where our CEO, Lawrence Whittle, discussed five macro trends driving the connected worker category; here are the takeaways.
With labor pools shifting and the cost of overseas manufacturing rising, businesses should seize on today's disruptive time to secure their future.
There are many similarities between what drives excellence in defense and excellence in industrial manufacturing/energy, including technology.
The takeaway from the Slack IPO news: We need to make sure collaboration software meets the needs and improves the productivity of all workers.
Nalco needed a better way to collaborate with field operators and better consistency in work quality. It accomplished this – and more – within 6 months.
If humanity’s future in manufacturing is inserting a few screws because our hands are still more dexterous than most affordable robots, then we are doomed.
Whoever buys Anadarko will need to develop and execute tactics to quickly and effectively integrate its people, SOPs, safety culture, and other tasks.
Our new mobile interface enhancements significantly reduce friction for users while delivering more information at a glance.
If the deskless worker doesn’t even have a digital interface, then how can they take advantage of AI?
What does a connected worker have to do with all of this data being generated from the millions of wellsites around the world? Everything.
I’m thrilled to share that we launched our Connected Worker Accelerators – out-of-the-box solutions built on our Connected Worker Platform for industrial companies to “fast start” their digital transformation.
Industrial software will enable continuous improvement to not be the exception, but the rule.
Blockchain. If your operation doesn’t run at the bleeding edge, put in in the “Useful in Future File” and move on.
Boss, I won’t be returning the seats of Tableau on the 26th. But I will try to make charting and graphing in dashboards straightforward.
AGVs don’t have the alien wheels or the smart arms, but they look upgradeable, and we can put them to work doing some mind-numbing tasks.
There, I said it: Wearables will be part of the mix, but still a relatively specialty product when the benefit of a visual overlay really matters.
Optimizing maintenance is a never-ending effort, and world-class excellence is hard-won. Here are three areas to focus on that will actually have a meaningful impact on your team’s effectiveness.
Drones have indeed come a crazy long way. But are they ready to really add value to factory and warehouse operations?
Yes. I am questioning our ceaseless desire to believe that the next tech widget automagically transforms our businesses without the requisite education and tools to capture new insights and feed them back into our work.
The promise of completely-connected-everything is a great idea and we should strive for it, but let’s not forget the low-hanging fruit begging us to make giant strides right now.
In the manufacturing realm, making sense of entirely new types of data for a new graduate may not produce results companies are looking for. Making sense of data is a new core competency everyone needs.
You couldn’t throw a sensor in the air without hitting a reference to a 3D printer. My take is that we “ain’t seen nothin’ yet.”
There are only a few applications for co-bots today. Getting our own humans productive first is currently a far better use of our time and money right now.
We don't need more sensors. In 2019, we need to talk about how we are going to train, upskill, manage, and gather insight from and for our 21st century humans.
If you break down what Industry 4.0 is – and to finally get moving on your digital transformation initiatives – you have to do just three things really well.
Green Chef is leveraging Parsable's Connected Worker Platform to build a lean digital infrastructure, enabling Green Chef to know what's happening on the floor in near real-time across distributed teams and leverage the data to drive better results.
Today we announced that we’ve completed an amazing Series C funding, with new enthusiastic investors and our devoted existing investors providing us with US$40m to take our company to the next level. It’s time to take our Connected Worker platform to even more customers.
To start this story right, we need to start at the start.
The psychology behind habits and why people are opposed to digital transformation.
Why plant managers need to start thinking about digital transformation and all of the advantages that they could be missing out.
How much people remember from a training and how Parsable can help.
A description of Parsable's benefits and the gift of digitization.
A discussion with Detlef Zühlke about closing the education gap in Industry 4.0.
Time, as they say, is money. But in the blind rush to digitization, we are forgetting about “DigitALization.”
The Internet of Things is not the end of Industry 4.0, but the beginning.
Parsable technology exists to enable digital, collaborative work among supervisors, engineers, field technicians, suppliers, and more.
Machines and humans need to find a way to work together to propel industry 4.0 forward.
