How to Eliminate the Paper Chase with Quality for Aptean by uniPoint Software
So many Quality Managers struggle to maintain the balance between data entry and data analysis. They want less of the former and more of the latter!

Imagine a world where all of your critical Aptean ERP data is integrated real-time into a full suite of Quality Management modules, AND with instant analytical output that your quality manager can only dream about:

- Over 800 live Quality Metrics and over 100 Standard Reports
- Over 80 Quality Trend Analysis Graphs to Measure Continual Improvement
- Advanced Inspections Module including Bubble Drawing and Wireless Data Entry
- NEW Web and Portal Technology to directly include your Customers and Suppliers

During this session you will learn how the CADLink Interface will automate routine tasks within the engineering department by allowing users to easily create and maintain item masters and bills of materials in the ERP system. CADLink is available for CAD applications like SolidWorks, Autodesk Inventor, Solid Edge and others as well as for PDM applications such as SolidWorks PDM Professional, Autodesk Vault, and others. The bi-directional synchronization capabilities of the interface help engineers to identify discrepancies between the data in the CAD model and ERP system and to quickly and easily resolve them. Engineers can map various item data fields to the model properties, thus storing and synchronizing vital product information directly within the CAD model. You will have a chance to hear about the real-life experience that other companies had with implementing CADLink, why they value the tool and the benefits they were able to realize from using it. You will hear from Lisa Santoro from Goldenrod Corporation that uses CADLink with Autodesk Inventor, as well as from Glen Richardson from Warrior Rig Technologies that uses CADLink with SolidWorks. This session is perfect for Intuitive ERP, Made2Manage and Encompix customers not currently using this product. During this session you will learn how this interface can help you to:
• Create and maintain item masters in the ERP for parts or assemblies within the CAD model.
• Create and edit bills of materials records within the ERP by outputting them from the CAD application.
• Identify and resolve discrepancies between the item properties in the ERP system and the CAD model.
• Manage Job BOM’s (Made2Manage version)
• Synchronize bills of materials in real time, while maintaining revisions control.
• Identify parts within the CAD model that should not be brought into the ERP BOM (e.g. reference models, etc.)
• Add parts to the ERP BOM that do not exist in the model (e.g. paint, lubricants, packaging, etc.)
• Store and synchronize the fields within the ERP item master directly within the CAD model properties.

Streamlining Quality and Compliance with uniPoint for Aptean
Advanced Quality by uniPoint is a powerful tool that can help you to get a firmer grip on the quality initiatives, on tracking non-conformances and corrective preventative actions, on performing and recording detailed inspection results, and overall tracking the cost of quality in your company. If you are in a regulated industry, have to maintain a quality certification or just want to improve how you track quality for your products, this session is for you. The goal of this session is to provide you with a good overview of the Advanced Quality capabilities and to discuss how other companies that had used this tool for a while utilize the system. You will hear from Mike Moellenbeck from Warrior Rig Technologies and Jeff Rydel from Swift Textile Metalizing about their use of Advanced Quality and will learn how they were able to implement comprehensive quality initiatives and improve their product quality through the use of the system. This session is perfect for Intuitive, Made2Manage and Encompix customers who currently do not have Advanced Quality and would like to learn from users about their experiences or those who already have Advanced Quality and would like to increase their understanding of the tool and its capabilities.
