  • Drive Manufacturing Quality Improvement, Control and Assurance with Mobility

  • Driving manufacturing quality improvement, control and assurance processes

    6% of the overall manufacturing workforce is dedicated to quality assurance. Manufacturing organizations are challenged with improving their current operations processes with a small percentage of quality improvement, control and assurance professionals. With smaller teams, organizations are challenged with producing high-quality and reliable products to meet regulations and standards, while making the best use of their resources.

    Mobility provides manufacturing organizations with the opportunity to improve their current processes with automated systems that allow quality improvement, control and assurance teams to easily complete inspection and reporting tasks. Mobile apps improve documentation accuracy, and increase business responsiveness and workflow efficiency.

  • Current trends in quality improvement, control and assurance operational excellence

    Implementing advanced technology for providing regular checks that guarantee accuracy, completion and integrity with right-time data

    Integration of automated workforce systems that address mistakes with right-time data, improving reliability and providing confidence in the organizations products and services

    Increased stringent regulations for flawless products, as a mistake can cost an organization thousands of dollars

  • The Old Reality vs The New Reality

    NEW REALITY Mobility provides the opportunity for manufacturing organizations to improve their current processes in-house. New apps allow for better collaboration between quality improvement, control and assurance teams.

    Organizations hired costly consulting firms to drive operational excellence initiatives for accurate and efficient quality improvement, control and assurance methods.

    OLD REALITY

  • The Old Reality vs The New Reality

    NEW REALITY Consumers have been trained to use mobile devices, and new mobile apps provide a fast, personalized user experience custom-tailored for their role.

    Organizations were constrained for resources when trying to adapt current quality improvement, control and assurance teams to new business processes.

    OLD REALITY

  • The Old Reality vs The New Reality

    NEW REALITY Mobile apps provide manufacturing organizations with the opportunity to modernize and replace cumbersome processes in a cost-effective, more efficient way.

    Organizations relied on outdated manual processes, such as collaborating using paper or spreadsheets, which are time-consuming and prone to human error.
