Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 25, 2007
In business, what you don't know can hurt you. Operational blind spots can lead to waste, avoidable risk, and missed opportunities. They are the plague of large enterprises.
Enter Form Automation Solutions, Inc. and its deceptively mild-mannered super solution, AuditMatic™ v4.0, which eliminates paper-based manual systems for mobile data collection, reporting and analysis. The quality improvement community will get its first look at AuditMatic at the upcoming World Conference on Quality and Improvement, April 30-May 2 in Orlando. The event is sponsored by the American Society for Quality, http://www.asq.org.
AuditMatic enables non-technical managers to create, publish and distribute data collection forms to mobile workers equipped with handheld computers or smart phones. The mobile workers upload the collected data to the AuditMatic server, which processes it and makes it accessible to the authorized manager in real time by means of a dashboard on their web-browser.
AuditMatic includes a task manager application, so large groups of mobile workers can be assigned data collection tasks, and the system will monitor their progress in completing the tasks.
AuditMatic has been selected by Microsoft for inclusion in its catalog of Windows Mobile solutions. It is available either as a hosted, subscription-based solution or by license purchase. Since it is designed for non-technical users, AuditMatic requires minimal training and no programming.
Stephen Woram, co-founder of the company, said manual, paper-based methods of data collection are more than inefficient. He said businesses should declare war on blind spots.
"Typically the paper forms end up in a file drawer somewhere and the collected information remains inaccessible to management," Woram said. "This leads to operational blind spots and even missed opportunities for enterprises. Quality improvement and the elimination of blind spots are two sides of the same coin."
By automating data collection and integrating it with task management, analysis, and reporting - all in real time - AuditMatic eliminates the blind spots. This added visibility and timely, actionable data, Woram said, enable management to identify new opportunities to save and make money.
Early adopters of the AuditMatic solution include one of the nation's largest supermarket chains, a large clothing manufacturer, a multi-national snack food company, and one of the nation's largest security services companies.
At the Quality and Improvement conference, FAS will be exhibiting at booth #436.
