Thred is a local New Zealand company passionate about the merging of business Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT). Making sense of hype and reality with terms such as Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) proves a challenge to businesses, with advertising media and product vendors making the concepts vaguer. Thred acts as a technology filter, understanding tools as they become available and utilising those we believe to enhance the convergence of the physical and cyber world.
Many New Zealand organisations are only just beginning to understand the value of investing in 'smart' manufacturing, however, this concept is not revolutionary. We have a long history of working with organisations to develop solutions which generate insights and analytics, which in turn are used to drive increased value through improved manufacturing plant and supply chain efficiencies.
Thred believes that New Zealand manufacturers have an opportunity to be at the forefront of the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) and become world leaders in the industrial data space. Our core purpose is to assist manufacturers on their journey through developing and executing solutions to reduce process inefficiencies and also identify opportunities to add value by providing innovative solutions centred around automation, data, and accompanying analytics & visualisation.
