Synergy SPC Software


 

Zontec has been delivering powerful statistical process control (SPC) software for the past 3 decades. The Synergy SPC Software product suite enables manufacturers to identify variations in the production process and correct them in real-time. Synergy SPC Software collects data throughout the manufacturing process. Results are immediately available through various charts, so users will know if products are trending towards out-of-control or out-of- specification and they can prevent errors.

Zontec’ Synergy product suite includes products to fit any sized company. Synergy 100 is geared towards a single user. It’s affordable and has built-in color-coded notifications and pop-up warnings that give real-time feedback. Synergy 1000 caters to small to mid-sized manufacturers. From a single dashboard, users can manage data, charts, communications, and reports. Synergy 2000 gives companies complete visibility over their processes regardless of location. Unique reporting tools are available for each level of users; from operators and managers, to engineers and administrators. Before an error can occur, the system sends emails directly to the appropriate team members to correct the issue on the production floor. Synergy 3000 is powered by the Microsoft .NET platform. The Synergy 3000 is designed for the global manufacturer with real-time reporting, so they can monitor numerous fast-paced production environments.

Synergy SPC software product suite was built, so that a customer can easily upgrade to the next level of the product. Previous data will still be accessible in the new product after the upgrade.

Zontec supports 5,000 customers from various industries worldwide.

It is very easy to set up and intuitive to figure out. I can also set up multiple run charts in the same view and can monitor several different specifications at one time.

I do not like having to relink data. It is a little tedious to have to go in and do this if a different user has logged into a data bank.

I also do not like being tied to a software key. We have to figure out how to connect this to the back of one of our servers and it is a hassle. There should be a better way to control licensing than that.

Recommendations

This software is very versatile and can do most anything you need as far as a specific type of chart or data trending. We have been using it successfully since about 2004.

The product itself is very user friendly and easy to set-up and maneuver. Working with personnel who had minimal computer skills and/or SPC knowledge was a breeze due to the easy of the software use. For me, I love the diversity of the software to collect and extract data as needed for reporting. The vendor I can't say enough about! Zontec personnel go out of their way to ensure they know your application of the product and are available at the drop of a hat when assistance is needed. I never talk to a computer I am always is direct contact with personnel who truly know the product and how it works. I can't say enough good things!

I have used this product for many years now and I don't have one single complaint.

Recommendations

Evaluate it and buy it! You will not be sorry. I evaluated three. This was the most expensive of the three I chose and it was a hands down choice to spend the initial extra upfront.

Spell check would be nice, as would a few more spaces in the character boxes to allow for more info.

Recommendations

I would recommend asking if it will it do everything you need it to do both now and in the near future.

I like the ease of the database use for the operator and the ease with which you can copy and paste data sets to create new databanks or download data into excel. I like the technical support from our rep, who is a gem. She has helped me numerous times either when I was first learning the software or if I misinterpreted something out of the manual. I can make changes very quickly, archive old information, or add new information in a matter of minutes.

Likes Least

There are some interpretation issues between the language in the manual and what can happen live. The search function is nice but not always helpful either. The support from our rep, however, fills those gaps nicely. She can usually help even when the problem is IT-related or something technical with the computer.

Recommendations

Have your vision well laid out before you evaluate any software, not just your current state. How many seats will you eventually need? What do you want to gain? How will you train your operators? How will you maintain the system? Learn how to use all of the functions. How will you use the dashboard? How do you want to see the SPC laid out for your operators? How many different kinds of charts do you want to run on this system? The more defined your vision, the better your results.

Product: I observed a software demonstration a few years ago at the Quality Expo down in Chicago. When the time came to purchase software, the Zontec Synergy software was my first choice because of all the features within the software. To name a few: ease of use, file setup, ability to download pictures, video, and documentation within a file, and email alerts.

Vendor: Completed my training at their facility in Ohio. Their staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful even after you leave the classroom.

I have not found any features using the software that I do not like.

Recommendations

1. Have the software manufacturer send a sample of the software to try for no less than 30 days to see if it is a good fit for your company before you purchase.

2. Make sure that you will get training/support in case there are any issues down the road.

Synergy 2000 is very easy to set up and use. Enter the number of ID labels that specify the sample (operator initials, job #, line #, etc), number of data points to be recorded, spec limits, and decimal points; enter the communication settings if using scales or calipers to capture the data; and the system is ready to go. We have 2 levels of access: one for the operators and one for the engineers to correct, review, and report the data. Charts are easily copied into Word or Excel. Great support from Zontec technical folks. They will help you set up the data capture process. We set up next year's data sheets in advance so that our operators can move from old to new without waiting.

Likes Least

When correcting mis-entered data, you cannot select multiple entries unless they are sequential. So this takes a bit longer when correcting data entry errors throughout tens of thousands of data points.

Recommendations

There are many features in the software that we have yet to utilize. Some time should be spent up front to outline how you will capture data and in which areas of the business. This should be presented to the trainers before the initial training sessions and actual data should be supplied to them to maximize the training. We started in a few areas and expanded into other areas of our facility.
