Mingo Smart Factory vs. Redzone Software

The choice of manufacturing productivity software can be difficult given the sheer number of vendors. On this page, we’ll look at the differences between Mingo vs. Redzone Software.

Our goal is to provide you with the information needed to make a decision about which software will be the best choice for your plant.

Twice as many features at half the price

Redzone is an entry-level system for manufacturers that work in the food & beverage industries. It’s a great step for factories that have never had a smart factory to digitize counts and downtime data into a dashboard. One of the main differences between Mingo and Redzone is that the Redzone interface is too simplistic. It doesn’t offer the flexibility to grow as manufacturers need more data to continue optimizing the flow of their factory floor. Mingo Smart Factory offers these features on pricing plans that are half the price of Redzone.

Mingo Smart Factory Reviews

Manufacturers Who Outgrew a Simplistic Production Monitoring System

Louisiana Fish Fry, a food manufacturer based in Louisiana switched from Vorne and Worximity to Mingo Smart Factory in 2022. They outgrew both systems and needed more flexibility on a platform that their operators actually wanted to use.

Mingo is different than the other software packages that we tried, in that you can start with something and then manipulate it as you learn, and as you grow with it. Don’t worry about getting something wrong initially. Get started and have confidence that you’ll be able to correct it as you get deeper into the implementation.

What can Mingo Smart Factory do vs. Redzone?

Mingo Smart Factory is a complete solution, offering dashboards, hardware, and visibility while providing immense value, immediately. With a suite of features for less money, Mingo Manufacturing Productivity Software is built for large and small manufacturers, enabling company growth.

Manufacturing is hard – you want to optimize the flow of your factory floor so you are maximizing throughput without sacrificing quality or your overtime budget. Not having visibility for what is happening on the factory floor in real time means that you don’t have the option to make data-driven decisions. Everything is based on “gut feelings” and what has worked in the past.

Mingo offers a line configuration feature, meaning your production team can get information on every single station or the line as a whole. It gives manufacturers like yourself the ability to see how each station is performing while improving the productivity of the entire line.

A few other big differences that are key to Mingo Smart Factory’s software include:
