Atos Origin, an international information technology services company, and Lighthouse Systems, one of the world's leading developers of factory information systems known as Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES), have formed a new implementation partnership which enables Atos Origin to choose Lighthouse Systems Shopfloor – Online MES - as a scalable solution for their North American clients. The software has been designed to be internationalized for global deployment and back-up from Lighthouse offices in Europe, USA or Asia.

Clients are expected to reduce spoilage and downtime and improve quality, performance and on-time delivery. Studies show companies who have adopted this type of MES solution have demonstrated a payback within 12 months.

"We are pleased to offer the Lighthouse Systems Shopfloor – Online MES as an alternative to traditional MES solutions for those clients who seek a wider scope of operations performance improvement," said Gene Wells, vice president of consulting and systems integration at Atos Origin in North America. "Working with Lighthouse Systems allows us to establish highly collaborative operations environments while enabling the acceleration of our client's ERP deployments – a double win for our customers."

"We believe Atos Origin's experience in manufacturing and their proven track record at implementing MES systems will greatly benefit our customers, providing a faster return on investment from each of their implementation projects," explains Paul Barber, Director at Lighthouse Systems.
