Over 80% of all small and mid-sized industrial organizations are still using paper forms and manual keyboard data entry to track their operations. This method of tracking operations is not only expensive, typically costing an organization the equivalent of one to three people at an average loaded cost of $50,000 per person to do the data collection, but can also result in costly data collection and operational mistakes.
The BellHawk software enables manufacturers and other industrial organizations to transition to using technologies such as barcode scanning and mobile data collection to eliminate the need for paper forms and manual data entry.
Previously, implementing these barcode tracking solutions was expensive, often costing $50,000 or more, and typically required that the organization had at least one IT person on its staff, often at a loaded labor cost exceeding $100,000 per year.
Now BellHawk is available on a Software-as-a-Service basis, in the Cloud, through BellHawk Online, typically for under $1,000 per month, without the need for any IT people to support the software. This makes the transition to automated data collection easy and affordable even for small industrial organizations.
And, for larger organizations, with their own IT departments, licenses to use BellHawk are available for annual rental, or outright purchase, at an affordable cost, for installation in a client's own data center. With BellHawk being an open-architecture platform, this gives the client's IT staff the opportunity to customize BellHawk to meet their specific operational needs as well as to integrate it with a wide variety of other systems.
