ABB Inc.

ABB is a leading global technology company that energizes the transformation of society and industry to achieve a more productive, sustainable future. By connecting software to its electrification, robotics, automation and motion portfolio, ABB pushes the boundaries of technology to drive performance to new levels.


Redzone is the first Digital Transformation technology that actually focuses on frontline workers as the productivity engine for production manufacturing. By empowering frontline workers with a digital identity and “a voice” to participate in continuous improvement (CI) activities, you create a learning organization driven by shop floor ownership. As evidenced by our biennial Productivity Benchmark Report, the average manufacturer, regardless of starting performance or CI maturity, increases productivity by 22% in their first 90 day. That’s more than an extra day of production from a standard straight-time week without adding headcount or equipment. What will you do with your extra day?
