RTP, NC: InspectionXpert Corporation announced today that its Beta Program for its new cloud-based, shop-floor quality system, QualityXpert, was a success with participation by a wide range of precision manufacturers. QualityXpert integrates directly with InspectionXpert OnDemand and provides precision manufacturers with visual data-collection at the source of production, automatic quality alerts, real-time reporting and easy access to their data. The QualityXpert Beta Program was announced last September, 2016 at the IMTS Show in Chicago here.
“The Beta Program was intended to introduce companies to QualityXpert so they could use it at no cost to see how it can dramatically streamline their manufacturing quality processes, lower costs and improve quality,” said Jeff Cope, Founder and CEO of InspectionXpert Corporation.” We were really pleasantly surprised at the high level of interest and the energy focused on truly advancing the state of quality management across precision manufacturers.”
The common use of spreadsheets and legacy SPC systems often result in silos of dispersed and untraceable data and manufacturing personnel operating from different sources of quality data. QualityXpert solves this problem by storing all inspection results in a controlled, fully-traceable cloud environment with instant alerts and real-time actionable insights to improve processes and reduce waste.
The Beta Program commenced on September 1st, 2016 and, to date, has over 60 companies using the new platform. The Beta Program was intended to help the QualityXpert Product Team better understand how customers would actually use the software from quality planning to shop floor inspections.
“Actionable analytics and real-time alerts are key elements to world-beating quality and the QualityXpert has made this capability, previously only available to large companies, affordable for even the smallest job shops.” Said Jeff. “QualityXpert enables InspectionXpert OnDemand users to aggregate all of their inspection results in the cloud where they can be accessed at any time. This represents a revolutionary step in a more integrated and effective design and quality planning process, and we are excited about the great response and innovative ideas to make it even better.”
