About Oden:

We are in a new industrial revolution.

Access to manufacturing analytics is now essential for thriving factories amidst challenges like labor shortages, increased costs, and global demand. One of the driving forces behind this change is the challenge of hiring and retaining front-line staff, as the industry often faces annual turnover of over 70%. Knowledge transfer and training are impeded by fragmented and siloed manufacturing data. We are revolutionizing the way plant-floor staff access and use data, helping workers become experts and high performers, faster.

Our solution turns billions of production data points into actionable insights for teams, empowering independent, data-driven decisions. This democratizes decision-making, improves working conditions, and saves millions in wasted resources annually.
