Start Services Hero


The Start Group was established in 2004 to bring world-class industry expertise in MES products and solutions to the local industry. The two principles of the business, Richard Bailey and Andrew Winter, each have over 30 years of industry experience, with Richard specializing in the Mining and Minerals processing industries, and Andrew specializing in Food, Beverage, and Manufacturing industries.

Based in Sydney Australia, the company set about encapsulating the broad industry knowledge and experience of their team in an MES product which would leverage modern technologies to solve real-world problems and provide signicant benefit to business. This culminated in the development of the Khronos Suite of MES products, including our flagship product Khronos Insight, which incorporates world-best-practice OEE, Downtime & Loss Accounting, Production Reporting, Inventory Tracking, and Process and Asset Modelling in a web-based, easy-to-use, configurable, and flexible product.

Khronos Insight is now sold around the world through our primary channel partner, Rockwell Automation, and domestically through our manufacturing channel partner, IoTics Pty Ltd.
