Detector Technology, Inc. Invests in IQMS Manufacturing ERP Software to Support Growth of its ISO 9001-Certified Business


Manufacturer turns to IQMS integrated ERP and MES system to optimize
inventory control, scheduling, on-time delivery, and communications
between sites and departments

a leading manufacturing ERP
and manufacturing
execution system (MES)
authority, today announced that Detector
Technology, Inc. (DeTech) has selected IQMS to gain the company-wide
visibility needed to optimize the operations of its expanding business.

Headquartered in Palmer, Mass., DeTech is a global ISO 9001-certified
manufacturer that specializes in channel electron multipliers for vacuum
assemblies, glass extrusion and fabrication for the fiber optic
community, motion control products, and contract clean room assembly.
The company is implementing IQMS EnterpriseIQ software, which uniquely
combines robust enterprise resource planning (ERP) and MES functionality
into one comprehensive system. With the move to IQMS, DeTech is
furthering its drive to grow the business through enhancements to its
inventory control, scheduling, on-time delivery, and communications
between sites and departments.

Optimizing Operations via Company-wide Visibility

Founded in 1983, DeTech has steadily grown over the years through
superior service and products that drive customer loyalty. More
recently, DeTech's success has led to the expansion of the company
though acquisition, and it now operates out of multiple facilities
totaling over 60,000 sq ft of vertically integrated manufacturing.
DeTech serves customers across North America, Europe, and Asia.
Additionally, the manufacturer needs to communicate with its suppliers
around the world.

For years, DeTech managed a significant portion of its manufacturing
process using several systems. Not only were the legacy systems aging;
they weren't integrated enough to provide a unified view of the
business. Faced with the need to maintain agility while continuing its
expansion, DeTech began evaluating modern manufacturing solutions that
would give all the sites where it operated access to common data. The
review of solutions led DeTech to select IQMS based on the software's
comprehensive capabilities. In particular, the company was impressed by
IQMS's MES capabilities, ease of use, and potential for data capture.

"The biggest factor in choosing IQMS was the MES monitoring system. We
liked how this was directly integrated into the IQMS software and
appeared to be easy to set up from a hardware perspective," said Laura
Ray, vice president, Detector Technology, Inc. "Another factor was the
simplicity of the overall software. Almost every employee that I spoke
with after the demos liked the look and feel of IQMS better than the
other products we demoed, and IQMS came across as being more intuitive."

Ray added, "We also felt that IQMS wanted to help us solve our problems
and work with us to implement solutions. IQMS took the time to
understand our business and how its software could fit into the model we
have in place while also suggesting best practices. We're impressed by
both IQMS's software and support, which have given us the confidence
that we are well-positioned to compete globally as we continue to grow
the business."
