Q’STRAINT AMERICA GOES LIVE WITH TRANSLUTION™ SOFTWARE
Q’STRAINT America is a world leader in wheelchair passenger safety solutions. They design and manufacture innovative technologies that are used across the world, aiming to ensure that safety is accessible for wheelchair passengers in every country.
A recent expansion at Q’STRAINT America prompted the need to automate and streamline material handling in their warehouse and on the production floor. TransLution Software was selected as the solution to transition material and job management records from paper to digital, as well as moving spreadsheets onto scanners, tablets and PCs using process automation. TransLution was chosen due to its flexibility to meet unique customer requirements, as well as its tight integration with SYSPRO, the ERP software used by Q’STRAINT.
In addition to using bar code scanning for data collection and syncing this data with SYPRO in real-time, TransLution provides a platform for an electronic dialog between production managers and staff in the raw material and finished good warehouse. Calling for raw materials from the warehouse used to mean emails, phone calls, and walking and talking with the material handlers. Now with TransLution, as soon as a SYSPRO production job is initiated by a manager, pick orders are prioritized and made available to the material handlers on their mobile scanners so they know exactly what materials to pick next and which work center they must be delivered to.
In this way, picking materials for complex combinations of jobs and sub-jobs are orchestrated by the software, and production managers know exactly what raw materials are being delivered to production, enabling them to better manage. At the same time, TransLution is posting material movements, job issues and job receipts to SYSPRO in real time so the ERP stock and job records are as current as the last physical movement on the floor.
