The finger as a key: how Testify as an enterprise solution supports the European market leader
Digitization success story of ekey biometric systems:
ekey has been developing and producing biometric access solutions for some 20 years and is thus a digital company of the first hour. Before the ekey finger scanners delight customers, they undergo a rigorous endurance test. Ekey uses Testify as an integrated quality management tool to support requirements for the QM system. It covers the entire supply chain, automatically integrates order and product data from the ekey internal third-party systems and enables the digital implementation and coordination of company-wide, complex testing processes.
Starting position at ekey before Testify:
To comply with the stringent quality requirements, ekey strives to continuously improve and further develop its internal quality processes. Before using Testify, ekey documented audit results from incoming, interim, and outbound inspection. The review process was paper-based and the collaboration in the QM by physically forwarding the inspection and document documentation. In order to further extend the quality checks, ekey considered the integration of further measurement and test values, as well as a digital process to further increase efficiency in cooperation.
Striving to evolve and digitize QM processes, Testify has been able to help solve the following challenges as an enterprise solution:
The challenges at the beginning:
Third system Challenge: Integration into existing (ERP) systems
The digital quality management process will in future encompass the processes of the entire supply chain. It therefore needs a system that works with existing EPR systems and optimizes the use of existing digital readings. The individual departments should be able to individually incorporate their established quality processes in the new, digital system, but they should be digitally tunable and integrable across the entire supply chain.
Stand linearization Challenge: Simplification of test procedures
The existing test procedures are to be safeguarded in future digital documentation. The digital system should help to map test procedures digitally and to comply with defined processes. It is desirable to record the entirety of all testing processes and to allow for quick reactions and simple documentation in case of defects.
About ekey biometric systems
ekey is an Austrian company with headquarters in Linz and Europe's No. 1 in fingerprint access solutions. The finger as a key is a comfortable, safe and easy alternative to the classic house key. Door keys - but also cards or codes - can be lost, forgotten or stolen. The finger is always there. As a manufacturer and developer with the highest technological expertise and patented software algorithm, ekey is a reliable partner for industry, trade and end customers. For example, ekey finger scanners can open the front door, close the garage door or activate the alarm system. With converters, ekey is also compatible with most building controllers and smart home systems. ekey subjects its products to strict production, manufacturing and functional controls (zero tolerance) and numerous quality system certifications.
