We're still trying to solve the same problems we are today. But Unifize has simplified it.



00:06 - 00:19
Basically when I started and long before I started in the quality department, everything was paper based. So somebody had a problem. Someone needed to scrap something out. Somebody needed to do some rework.



00:19 - 00:24
Some of them just need parts remade because they can't find them. That was all done by paper.



00:24 - 00:40
We would release the paperwork out to the floor and sometimes it would come back so we could gather of the, you know, the labor, the material costs, all that and get it reported. So inventory control specialists can do their job of keeping our inventory accurate.



00:40 - 00:55
Great thing about Unifize is it has created smaller groups of discussion when problems arise and we can collaborate through those conversations and we produce those records basically online.



00:55 - 01:03
Everybody that needs to be involved knows what's going on and what's in front of them all the time to come to a resolution of whatever the issue is.

But what we've known from what I experience was, is we were able to get there with the system. We still there with the system. The system has what is needed to provide us what we're looking for, because every company, admittedly, is trying to get compliant. If we educate people, if we get people the education that they need and to get over the fear factor, I think 90% of those things can be resolved because most people will go to what they're most familiar with.What I worked with from a different company, but they're not willing to sit down and look at what the demographics are saying. People are into social media now. People are moving fast into fast paced world. But technologies are still antiquated. So there's a disconnect here, right? So while we're moving at a fast pace at home with dragging at work, so why can't we continue that speed while we at work?If your supplier has issues and you're not informed on time, you want to have an alternate supplier in place. If your suppliers are not qualified, you may not know that that needs to happen. And so when you have an integrated system that speaks to itself and is giving you all this data, you literally have the pulse of the organization in your hands as an executive at a money bound access.
