“I have been in meetings at the customer’s location where we are discussing a new product. Synergy SPC software gives us the ability to log into our server, show them the exact machine that would be used to produce the new product, what tolerance the machine is currently running and the capability history of that machine,” Winfrey said. “This type of information shows the customer what they need to see before moving forward. Synergy provides us that edge to win the business.”

“Case Study: Software Brings New Business”

Customer service from your SPC software partner is critically important when you have quality issues that halt production. In these situations, you have one priority—getting the issue resolved and the line up and running. There are many reasons for manufacturing disruptions and all cause lost time and increased cost.

The Statistical Process Control (SPC) software vendor you have built a relationship with should treat your issue as their top priority. Here are some hallmarks of excellent customer service:

  • Picture of a woman customer service rep to show Zontec SPC software support.Personalized Service – Each production environment is unique. As your vendor of choice, you want to talk to someone who understands your implementation of the software. You want to work through issues with someone who retains the knowledge of past issues related to your implementation.
  • Persistent Service – Occasionally complicated issues take time to resolve. When this happens, you want to work with someone who will remain with you until the issue is resolved.
  • Prompt Service – Because every minute counts, you want a prompt response as well as a knowledgeable team to work on your issue or concern.
