LineView Solutions Managing Director and co-founder Ian Rowledge started his journey as a production manager at Coca-Cola Enterprises. At the time, he was grappling with how difficult it was to identify key issues with no real data: that it was impossible to know the true causal losses in a system without great data. After putting in long hours one weekend in an attempt to find true causal loss and finding that they were back to square one on Monday, Ian decided that enough was enough.
Ian worked in tandem with John Dunlop, Technical Director of Bytronic, then technical service provider to Coca-Cola Enterprises, to develop a software solution that became much more than a line monitoring tool: LineView line information system was born.
