For every large manufacturing company that is in the midst of a digital transformation, there are hundreds of small to mid-sized manufacturers still relying on manual, paper-based processes—and it’s taking a toll on their ability to manage quality and inventory.
One such company, A&K Finishing, a leading coater that provides plastic paint solutions for the automotive, furniture, electronics and commercial industries, decided to move from manual, paper-based quality and inventory management processes and discovered a whole new way of looking at operations.
The company now exceeds customer quality expectations and drives continuous improvements with real-time information.
Every part that comes into A&K gets painted and goes out as a final product to the customer. Counting inventory manually weekly and monthly was labor-intensive and time consuming. Now the company has accurate inventory history and can account for every piece that comes into the facility. This must-have data is not at every employee’s finger tips.
We’re thrilled to help A&K get more insight and accuracy with its quality and inventory management, and we are confident that the company will continue delighting customers with its world-class coating applications and options.
