Company Brief
About 5 years ago we were working on a project for a client to drive significant improvements in productivity across the entire manufacturing floor. We relied on the tried and tested lean-sigma tools to deliver the necessary improvements. Powerful tools that have been around for decades. During this time, we began to realise that there was a better way to use these paper and spreadsheet based tools. So we decided to make them digital.

Kyzentree is a SaaS technology company that is bringing digital transformation to the world of operational excellence. We have merged our collective expertise in lean-sigma, manufacturing operations and software to change how lean tools are used on the manufacturing floor.

We pride ourselves on our expertise in operational excellence and software development. We are working with companies big and small, including some of the world’s top multinationals in the medical device, pharmaceutical and food & beverage sectors. We are looking for innovative people with a can-do attitude to join our team. If this sounds like you, let’s talk.
