Wren Kitchens cooks up fresh approach to production using ShireSystem software

Wren Kitchens – the UK’s no. 1 kitchen retailer – is enhancing its production capabilities by investing in ShireSystem by Elecosoft, using smart facilities management software to respond quicker to maintenance issues, improve machinery run times, and increase output.

ShireSystem delivers value by integrating with Wren Kitchens’ SCADA production monitoring system via an API. Any technical problems or performance issues detected in SCADA are pushed directly into the ShireSystem platform, creating a joined up workflow and automating maintenance work orders.

One critical feature that ShireSystem has provided for Wren Kitchens is Mobile Pro, which empowers production and maintenance teams to track assets both on and offline from any location, via mobile application.

“Our engineers have become more accountable for problem solving. The data they need to understand what’s gone wrong is available at their fingertips, and they can access digital documentation to fix the problem. There’s no more scavenger hunting to find diagrams and manuals.” Shares Liam Wray, Control Engineer at Wren Kitchens.

Already, the company is using ShireSystem to reduce machine downtime, increase insight and apply diagnostic learnings across production lines, all of which is enhancing the profitability of its manufacturing process. And the journey has only just begun.

“I’d recommend ShireSystem to anyone. It’s a really good piece of software.”
