Stop Getting Sidetracked: Solving the Real Problems with the Ultimate Tools

“Syncfusion’s continuing to innovate and drive the product forward. You really have everything you need to be successful.”—Ron Clontz, VP of Corporate Strategy and Innovation, Godlan

Challenge and Solution:

The developers at Godlan were looking for a way to save time when creating their programs. Godlan produces software solutions that aid the manufacturing industry in collecting data and extracting from it actionable conclusions. Having manufacturing experience themselves, Godlan’s programmers understand the data coming from machines and how to act on it, helping companies make their processes simpler and more efficient.

However, the developers were tired of being sidetracked by building tools to solve problems, rather than just solving the problems. They were also spending a lot of time evaluating data for trends and creating visualizations of the data sets themselves in order to produce and explain results to their clients. So, they decided to look for a more efficient way to do their own work. Ron Clontz, Godlan’s VP of corporate strategy and innovation, has been in the business a long time, so he knew what he was looking for when shopping for third-party controls, and found it with Syncfusion.

“If you’re really looking to have something that has your own brand and your own company identity, and what I call ‘special sauce,’” said Clontz, “then you really need to take a good look at Syncfusion, because your team’s not going to be limited.”

Clontz appreciated the wide variety of controls Syncfusion offers, which he said could be used by technical and nontechnical people alike. His team is using the Dashboard Platform to display the data gathered by their data acquisition engine in reports and other visualizations. Now, both workers on the factory floor and management in the back office have the ability to access and act on data being produced by their machines. Clontz’s team is also using various JavaScript controls, like the Diagram control to map out floor plans for different machines on shop floors.

Clontz also said that Syncfusion is easy to do business with because there are “no walls, nothing’s hidden, no little black box to where you can’t go past this.” Unlike many companies he evaluated, Syncfusion’s structures, including pricing and permissions, were transparent and easy to understand.

Now, Godlan’s developers have more time to focus on their solutions.

“We spend time working on the problem rather than the process of how to get there,” said Clontz. “It’s speed, it’s simplicity, it’s about my team getting back to spending their time on the true value, which is solving the problem.”

Without all that extra work distracting them anymore, Godlan’s teams now have time for several projects on the R&D front. They’re looking at different ways to visualize data for both real things like machines and less tangible aspects of manufacturing.

“The thing is, sometimes when you have the ultimate toolkit, it just lets your creativity run wild,” said Clontz.
