(Zontec: Cincinnati, OH) -- Zontec Inc., global leader in statistical process control (SPC) software, is expanding its software purchase options to include e-commerce subscription software. Starting today, Synergy 100 and Synergy 100+ are available to purchase and download without long-term commitments or contracts.

This new e-commerce subscription provides a positive shift in the way manufacturer’s access and use SPC software. The ability to subscribe with a single user minimum and floating license is very practical for companies who previously thought SPC software was unattainable. This software subscription delivers results and creates value from the start without a lump sum payment up front. Because this software is so cost-effective, companies can expense the monthly subscription instead of navigating the capital expense approval process that is commonplace when purchasing on-premise software. This makes purchasing Synergy 100 or Synergy 100+ a simple, easy business decision.

“Even though we still offer SynergySPC software without subscriptions, we want to give manufacturers a new, cost-effective way to engage with us and implement SPC software,” says Benjamin Ha, vice president of operations, Zontec. “Fast to download and install, our new e-commerce subscription gives companies the flexibility to scale according to their needs.”

(Zontec: Cincinnati) -- Zontec, the international developer of statistical process control (SPC) software solutions, has released an update to its Synergy 2000 Multi-Function Toolbox for the worldwide market. The Multi-Function Toolbox is an easy-to-use utility program that automates data transfer in both Zontec’s Synergy 1000 and Synergy 2000 programs.

The chief upgrade included in v. 3.0 is the Keyence interface module. This module allows for automatic creation of a data bank and associated data tables based upon measurement programs configured in the image dimension measurement system Keyence IM. Additionally, the module streamlines automated transfer of data with accompanying information through an output .csv file that is configured in the Keyence software and allows scheduling continuous data transfer at defined time intervals.

“The time savings we realize will allow more measurements per shift [or] day, better visual review of product, and eliminate manual data entry errors once implemented,” says Brian Kropp, quality control manager at Fastco Industries. “When implemented it will drastically decrease manual input for variable data recording.”
