Here is our step-by-step guide to setting up Evocon. This will help you get started with production monitoring using Evocon’s OEE software so you can transform your production process.
Getting Started with Evocon
Before we can start to set up Evocon, let’s determine what you need.
Do it yourself
Or let us help you
|To find out how your production can be monitored, please read:|
To find out what hardware you need, please read:
|Contact us by chat or email to find out what solution suits you best. Or, if you prefer, we can talk to you on the phone.|
Reading time: 10-50 minutes, depending on your type of production.
Chat: we are online during business hours (UTC/GMT +2h), and you can talk to us immediately.
Step 1: Contact Us
Please contact us, so that we know what hardware to ship and what customizations to make.
Fill in the 30-day free trial form
Or just contact us
|If you prefer a structured approach, a great way to start is to fill in the 30-day free trial form. We will follow up with an email, asking you these questions about your production.|
Your answers will help us determine what hardware we need to send you (if we need to send it) and how to set up the system for your needs.
|For a less structured approach, or if you wish to purchase Evocon right away, get in touch with us via chat or email. If you prefer, we can talk to you on the phone.|
Setting up Evocon in your factory, whether you do it as part of the 30-day trial or purchase it right away, is exactly the same.
Step 2: The Hardware Is Shipped, and You Get Access to the System
DHL will deliver the Evocon’s IIoT device to your doorstep alongside with necessary sensors and cables (if requested).
- If you are in Europe, you will receive your hardware in 1-2 business days.
- For anywhere else, it will be no more than 3-4 business days.
While your parcel is traveling, we provide you with all the instructions you need to set up Evocon. So, when you receive it, you will already have all the information to get it done.
You get access to the system as soon as the hardware is shipped, which means that you can start configuring the system (entering products, shifts, downtime reasons) before you even get the hardware.
To speed things up further, one part of step No.3 can be done before you receive our device and sensors: setting up the internet.
Step 3: You Get the Hardware and Set It Up
Your technical personnel does the setup
Or our technical support helps you via phone or email
|Evocon is very easy to set up. Your technical team will be able to do it themselves, thus avoiding substantial implementation costs.||If you have no in-house technicians or electricians, no worries: we will give you our technical support and guidance via phone or email.|
Most of our clients manage to set up Evocon in a few hours.
It will take a few hours or more, depending on the chosen way of communication.
You Are Done!
This is it. Once everything is set up, you can log in and watch your OEE data flowing in.
How About Training?
Evocon is an intuitive and easy-to-use system. However, to get the most out of the system, there are various options:
|Read help articles||Train your team yourself, using our tutorial on the demo system||Let us train your personnel|
|Go through our help articles. There you will find instructions with videos and illustrations.||We can provide you with a designated demo account which has a system tutorial. It makes it easy for you to train your team.||When implementing Evocon on a broader scale, we train key personnel of your company via a webinar. The webinars usually last for an hour, followed by a Q&A session.|
