InfinityQS Expands eSPC Infrastructure to Support Growing Client Base
Manufacturers Look to Software as a Service (SaaS) Solution to Drive Down Costs
Chantilly, VA - February 4, 2009 - InfinityQS® International, the leading provider of real-time Statistical Process Control (SPC) software, today announced major infrastructure upgrades for its SaaS solution, eSPC. In order to support the growing demand for this system, InfinityQS has doubled its connection bandwidth and integrated the latest hardware/software and fibre channel technology from Cisco, EMC and VMware. The result is a dynamically provisioned system in a high-availability virtual network that sustains a 99.999% system uptime. The SaaS solution for real-time SPC collects and analyzes quality data from the shop floor and offers instant visibility throughout the enterprise and supply chain, significantly reducing supply chain risk.
"In this economy, we're seeing more and more manufacturers looking for ways to cut costs while still ensuring the quality of their products," said Michael A. Lyle, president and CEO of InfinityQS. "eSPC is an attractive solution because manufacturers can get the system up and running within days, without any significant upfront expenditures. Our customers are saving the costs of additional servers, databases and IT support with InfinityQS managing the system remotely. Because eSPC is deployed so quickly, the ROI from reduced scrap and rework can be recognized immediately on the bottom line."
InfinityQS' infrastructure investment is in response to manufacturers' growing demand for cost-cutting quality control solutions that can be quickly implemented and that carry a low overhead. With this Web-based solution, manufacturers can immediately start collecting and analyzing quality data using only an internet connection and a workstation.
The global economic slowdown is negatively impacting all sectors-particularly manufacturing with 793,000 jobs lost in 2008, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. In this environment, companies that were already pursuing cost-cutting initiatives are forced to do more with less as the market still demands a high quality product.
As part of InfinityQS' commitment to help manufacturers meet the demand for quality while cutting costs, the company is waiving the activation fee for new eSPC customers. InfinityQS understands that even nominal upfront costs are difficult to procure in this economic environment. The company is therefore extending this offer for a limited time in order to allow manufacturers to start improving product quality with no money down.
