Dos Gringos, a flower grower and bouquet maker in Vista, CA, has introduced a set of digital touch screens installed throughout production and office areas. Jason Levin, the company head, said in a news release the purpose is “to post key metrics throughout the day so everyone from quality assurance to logistics to assembly line leaders know in real time exactly how we’re stacking up, especially with regard to quality.”

Mr. Levin said he expected the signage to increase productivity and hold costs down. “We’ll celebrate the good numbers and try to keep them going, and we’ll address the not-so-good as quickly and efficiently as possible,” he added.
