Data is everywhere. Often it’s in random places, jumbled together in a slop of 1s and 0s that doesn’t make much sense to the casual observer. Saphran Solutions is creating software that puts all of that data into proper perspective.
The Franklin-based business creates software platforms that help automotive suppliers and other manufacturers achieve efficiencies by narrowing the gap between business planning and performance.
Its newest proprietary software program, CapacityBase, does that by simulating and evaluating multiple product-demand scenarios to map out the user’s short- and long-term capital investment plans to maximize returns. Think of it as a system that enables manufacturers to more effectively manage assets, avoid future risk and reduce costs.
“Essentially we connect the information the company already has and use it to streamline its operations to meet capacity,” says Don Stilwell, vice president of sales & business development for Saphran Solutions.
The 10-year-old company employs 20 people. That team will work to aggressively market this new software platform to manufacturers.
“We are looking at adding additional people as we ramp up,” Stilwell says.
