It’s a straightforward concept that implementation time affects your SPC Software ROI. Depending upon the vendor, SPC software implementations can take a couple of weeks or as long as 6 months to a year. Our SynergySPC team believes software setup and implementation should be as efficient as possible for you to begin experiencing the benefits of SPC software.
The faster you are able to setup the SPC software for your particular facility, the quicker the SPC software pays for itself.
The fastest thing I’ve ever done was to set up 60 tables in 2 days.”
— Bob Hyland, Process Engineer, for Acme Aerospace
As each facility has its own production process, we believe that superior SPC software should allow you the flexibility to customize the software to meet your individual needs. We are here every step of the way to help you.
Zontec really listened to what I had to say about our implementation and we worked through our custom implementation.”

For SPC software to help your facility to become more successful, every level of user must be empowered to make informed decisions at their level in the process.
“Companies should ask how long it takes to train on the vendor’s software. If it takes a week, to me the software product is very difficult to learn,” said Ben Ha of Zontec in a recent article in Quality Magazine.
“We have found the software to be easy-to-use and straightforward. Using Synergy, we are easily able to train our junior operators who do not have any SPC experience.”
— Fedele D’Alessandro, General Manager for LMPsrl

Benefits of a Rapid Implementation
Once Synergy is successfully implemented, you will not only quickly realize your ROI, but also reduce costly downtime.
Previously, Portage Plastics would have to pull the product, sort the product, figure out what happened, pay 3 days of overtime, as well as repair the machine. Since using SynergySPC from Zontec, our product return rate has dropped to less than half of a percent of what we are currently shipping.”

Test Out New Products
Customers have told us that one of the unforeseen benefits of using Synergy SPC software is the ability to test out new products using existing equipment, thus, increasing their revenue.
Using the data from Synergy, we can determine if we can produce a new product using current processes before we actually produce it.”
