Argolytics and CFA Solutions Create Nonconformance Reporting in Trendable for Data Collection

Collaboration produces online software for collecting quality inspection data

Published: Thursday, June 30, 2022 - 12:01

(Argolytics: State College, PA) -- Argolytics, maker of Trendable software solutions for quality control, announced a partnership with CFA Solutions, makers of the nonconformance tracking and reporting software 80/20 Quality. The new agreement will integrate the two software programs to make a seamless transition from recording inspection measurements to reporting defects. Manufacturers pursuing accreditation with internationally recognized standards like ISO 9001 will be served by this new offering.

“We’ve seen the enthusiastic adoption of CFA Solutions’ 80/20 Quality platform as a sign that manufacturers care about product quality and are taking the steps to remain in compliance with industry standards,” says Tamela Serensits, Argolytics founder and CEO. “This product-focused partnership is built to ensure Trendable users have access to the best-in-class reporting when parts aren’t meeting specifications. The in-depth knowledge and expertise in complex reporting requirements is what attracted us to CFA Solution’s offering.” 

Adam Marsh, president of CFA Solutions, adds, “We’re happy to partner with Argolytics, a company hyper-focused on serving small- and medium-size manufacturers in the United States. The integration between 80/20 Quality and Trendable will create even more value for our users. We’re excited to make data collection and reporting easy and accessible through this new integration.”

Many small and medium-size manufacturers looking to begin or expand their current quality control program often find software setup and capital costs prohibitive. With Trendable for Data Collection and 80/20 Quality, business leaders will find that the transition to a modern quality control program is easier and more affordable.

With 80/20 Quality, inspectors on the shop floor can document a nonconformance directly with enough detail and pictures to illustrate the issue for decision-makers. Management and supervisors are alerted to production issues so that critical-to-quality decisions can be made without delay. Required documentation of the nonconformance is approved, and associated activities are logged in accordance with reporting standards.

The Trendable quality control software suite is a new approach to modernizing, digitizing, collecting, and reporting quality control activities for small and medium-size manufacturers and provides accurate, comprehensive results.
