QCloud Modernizes Quality Processes: Creative werks replaces paper with iPadsPublished August 15, 2012 10:30
Bensenville, IL – August 15, 2012: Nulogy announced today that creative werks, a full service contract manufacturer and packager, has adopted Nulogy’s cloud-based quality control software, QCloud™, in their Bensenville facility in Illinois, USA.
The creative werks quality department partnered with Nulogy to implement the software provider’s latest innovation. The turnkey contract packaging services provider saw QCloud™ as a cutting-edge solution that would revolutionize their quality processes. Instead of their traditional paper-based processes, creative werks now uses QCloud™ on Apple™ iPads to audit production, expedite the inspection process, and provide rapid access to information saved securely and redundantly in the cloud.
Creative werks runs Safe Quality Food (SQF) 2000 food-grade clean rooms for both automated and labor-intensive fulfillment operations for many Fortune 500 brands and has facilities in the U.S., Mexico, and China. “Using Nulogy’s QCloud system has taken creative werks’ quality reporting to the next level. We are more efficient, can provide real-time data, and are reducing the opportunity for human error,” explained creative werks Director of Quality Assurance, Chris Pirotte. “QCloud has been a huge improvement for us.”
Pirotte took advantage of QCloud’s easily customizable templates to build a framework that supports and enhances quality and production specifications. He is able to quickly update these templates, instantly deploying the latest versions to the shop floor. The modernized iPad system eliminates the need for paper reporting, fulfilling one of creative werks’ going green werks’ objectives.
“We are happy to see creative werks using QCloud so extensively,” said Kevin Wong, Nulogy’s VP of Product Management. “We built the very user-friendly product for forward-thinking companies looking to elevate their quality processes quickly and effortlessly. Creative werks is a great example of such a company that is now seeing improved data quality, and increased efficiency.”
QCloud™ was designed to be very easy to use for any level of computer user through the iPad's intuitive touch interface. Once a creative werks QA technician has performed an audit by entering information using an iPad right on a production line, the quality information is stored in QCloud’s high-availability cloud environment. By utilizing this software-as-service (SaaS) technology, creative werks' management has instant access to a full history of results through highly flexible, filterable reports.
