ASI DATAMYTE: Setting the Benchmark in Quality Management

Rick Bump, President and Joel Ronning, Chairman
“Quality in a service or product is not what you put into it, it is what the client or customer gets out of it”—this famous quote by Peter Drucker, the father of modern management, should be the crux of every organization’s objective. The reliability, durability, and performance of products and services that an organization provides greatly influence a company’s stature and success. Hence, to stay competitive, it is vital for organizations to ensure they provide top-notch products that address the business needs of their customers and comply with the highest quality standards.

With a vision to improve quality initiatives around increasing customer satisfaction, reducing costs, mitigating risks, and meeting compliance, ASI DATAMYTE provides software, hardware, and services for driving best-in-class quality across multiple industry verticals. These verticals include automotive, aerospace, consumer products, food and beverage, medical device and pharmaceutical. As a pioneer with 40+ years of experience implementing integrated quality management solutions, the company’s industry agnostic, cross-platform data collection software and hardware devices provide cutting-edge, high integrity data collection and analysis. This enables clients to build real-time integrations across multiple business systems, and the data is then integrated into a client’s ERP or MES system. “Our quality management solutions work cohesively between machines, devices, and software to deliver timely and hierarchy appropriate reporting and analytics,” says Rick Bump, president of ASI DATAMYTE. “This accessibility allows managers to identify areas of improvement, optimize processes, and drive critical quality initiatives.”

The company’s industry-leading real-time statistical process control (SPC) software, DataMetrics, provides action-oriented, hierarchy-appropriate data analysis and reporting capabilities that ensure full traceability.
This solution along with ASI DATAMYTE’s mobile 600 Data Collector—an integrated hardware solution—captures the industry label information and then saves the data for later analysis and traceability. “Our offerings break the silos that separate data and provide a centralized database that allows access to action-oriented data at each decision-making level,” adds Joel Ronning, chairman of ASI DATAMYTE. The company also offers agility and visibility by providing real-time, shared data that is automated, reliable, and actionable. A unique benefit of the SPC solution is it constantly collects data, even when there is a power outage or scheduled system maintenance. Bump asserts, “No other data SPC solution offers this level of flexibility.” A factor that truly distinguishes the firm is their modularized system that enables them to effectively build tailored solutions that fit clients’ needs. “From a single plant to global multi-site operations, we have the infrastructure to meet the needs of our customers,” adds Bump.

In an instance, one of the company’s long-standing clients, a global food and beverage company, approached ASI DATAMYTE seeking a solution to streamline and automate the lot release process in one of its plants. “The client had a dynamic lot release process that involved numerous steps and clearances to be able to decide whether or not a lot can be released,” explains Ronning. “This created silos of information that caused data integration issues.” By implementing the firm’s DataMetrics solution, which improved traceability and data visibility, the client was able to create a more streamlined lot release process. “This helped save time, reduce costs, and improve document control and record-keeping,” affirms Bump.

ASI DATAMYTE focuses on the development and global deployment of hardware and software related quality management solutions that leverage the Industrial Internet of Things revolution. Forging ahead, the company is working on a continuous, closed-loop suite of quality management functionalities that breaks down silos and incorporates feedback from quality, operations, sales, marketing, and customer service to drive quality improvements. “This will enable the manufacturers to realize higher levels of automation, lower operating costs, and improve operational efficiency,” concludes Ronning.
