Don’t just take our word for it!

Previously, as an organization, we relied heavily on the discipline of the operators to fill in the necessary production reports. With Azumuta, we can send the necessary reminders to the operators if necessary. Moreover, we can monitor in real time whether they have actually filled in the production reports at the scheduled time.
