New technology, new possibilities
Since implementation, Craig has continued to be pleasantly surprised by the unique possibilities of iAuditor. “One of my favorite things about the software is that we can adapt it for specific purposes. As it’s easily customizable, we have the flexibility to integrate it seamlessly within our existing processes,” says Craig.
He was also impressed by how quickly Gason’s factory floor workers familiarized themselves with the new mobile technology. “They’re happy because we’ve removed needless paperwork from their workspace,” Craig explains. “Now, they can just use a phone or iPad to sign off, report and make comments – which is such an improvement since those guys are often covered in oil and grease!”
Other benefits include:
Money and time saved
“iAuditor has improved our processes and helped us identify elements in the business that need to be eradicated or updated – we’ve saved huge amounts of time.”
“Not only has it facilitated better internal communication, it’s made collaboration with our suppliers and customers a first-class experience. One of our customers is even using iAuditor, so we can liaise with them in real-time. That means we’re confident every element, from pre-production checks and freight to measurements and auditing, is as streamlined as possible.”
Overall quality improved
“My goal was to shift the culture of quality beyond product – and we’ve been successful. These days, we’re not just conducting quality checks when a machine or item is walking out the door, we’ve inspired every employee to take ownership of the quality of their workmanship.”
But of course, for Craig, the most important benefit is the certainty he now carries with him into work each day. “All I have to do is check my iAuditor dashboard in the morning, and update my inventory report software. I have complete visibility – which helps me ensure the future is healthy,” he says.
“Anything that is built by Gason is built to last. We expect it to serve its purpose and have longevity. We’ve been here 75 years, and we want to be here for another 75 years.”
