Your finger as key: How Testify as Enterprise-Solution supports an european market leader
ekey biometric systems – a digital success story:
ekey has been developing and producing biometric access authorisation systems for about 20 years now, so they are a digital company from the first. Before ekey´s scanning solutions thrill their customers, they have to go under an acid test. Ekey uses Testify as an integrated quality management tool, to impose their requirements on a quality management system. Supply Chain, integrated and automized order and product data of ekey´s systems are integrated. So a digital fulfillment and cooperation of company-wide and complex check processes is enabled.
Initial situation at ekey before Testify:
To meet strict quality requirements, ekey strives to improve their quality processes continously. Ekey used to document inspection results in the areas of goods in, goods out and material handling. This process was paperbased and collaboration in the quality management departmant was based on physical check- and issue-documentation. Ekey´s target was to integrate further checks to gain data and improve efficiency in collaboration. Testify was the Partner to help Ekey develop and digitalize der quality management processes as an enterprise solution:
Challenges at the beginning:
Third-party system-Challenge: Connection with existing (ERP-)systems
The desired digitalquality management process should contain processes from the whole supply Chain. A system, that comunicates with the existing ERP system was required and existing measured values should be used. All departments should be able to implement their quality processes into the new, digital system, but they should be digital adjustable and integrateable along the whole Supply Chain.
Standardizing-Challenge: Simplyfication of inspection processes
All existing inspection processes should be secured by digital documentation. A digital system should help to project processes digital and ensure their fulfillment.
Das digitale System soll helfen, Prüfvorgänge digital abzubilden und definierte Prozesse einzuhalten. It is desirable to record the entirety of all test processes and, in the event of defects, to react quickly and document easily.
