This collaborative technology helps customers work with their suppliers on improving product quality during production.
"Being named as one of the 2007 'Pros to Know' in the supply chain management field reaffirms the decision InfinityQS made six years ago to develop a comprehensive solution for managing supply chain quality in real-time," said Lyle. "Manufacturers are now using eSPC to scientifically improve quality, increase efficiencies and reduce costs throughout their global supply chain. These manufacturers are realizing ROIs that can be measured in weeks, not months or years."
