This agreement will give PA Solutions clients access to the Enact platform, a cloud-based quality management system. At the same time, PA Solutions will be able to provide valuable support and advanced capabilities to other partner organizations within the InfinityQS partner network. PA Solutions is one of the leading independent providers of complete automation solutions for the process and manufacturing industry. The company has been performing its services with considerable success in various industrial sectors since 1986.
Manufacturers are now facing the need to re-evaluate their operational processes, driven by pressures to reduce costs and drive greater value across their production environments. Advancements in technology have been critical to this and increasingly more manufacturers are unlocking their full potential by investing in and deploying cloud technology. InfinityQS is proving to be a key facilitator of this movement.
For organizations, the insight obtained through Enact enables managers and quality professionals to view quality information across all regions and plants, using any device. It also allows the user to visualize how processes are performing, where problems exist, and where quality resources should be engaged to generate the greatest economic benefit. This data can then be leveraged to dramatically improve yield, compliance, and resource utilization, through an aggregated end-to-end view of production sites across the entire enterprise.
For PA Solutions, becoming an Enact reseller will significantly enhance its already strong quality management proposition. Historically, PA Solutions delivered its Quality Management for Manufacturing (QMM) services from its Center for Excellence in Montréal, Canada. Through Enact, it now can scale out that service much faster and more intuitively.
“Quality management is incredibly complementary to our core automation and manufacturing IT competencies and the new agreement with InfinityQS will strengthen this further,” commented PA Solutions Director of Business Development Pierre Lavergne. “Increasingly, we’re seeing more and more manufacturers acknowledging the benefits which can be gained from deploying cloud technology. If you consider this from a quality management perspective, being able to capture data streams from a variety of plants and sites means that manufacturers can achieve greater insight into how they can improve their production processes. Inherently, the data streams generated will enable them to improve the quality of the products they are taking to market and therefore provide huge savings.”
Jason Chester, director of channel programs for InfinityQS, said, “We have a longstanding relationship with PA Solutions and are thrilled that they have agreed to become a channel partner for our Enact solution. Critically, the depth and breadth of the PA Solutions competences mean not only do we see this agreement benefiting their customer base, but also the entire Enact partner community. Some partners may not have the experience or expertise in certain areas, such as in industrial engineering, PLC or OPC configuration, or enterprise application integration, for example. PA Solutions is one of those unique partners which has strong capabilities across many categories and something which our partners can leverage to ensure the success of their own opportunities.”
“We’ve been really pleased with the response to the program and continue to see a great uptake in firms wanting to become partners, and having PA Solutions within our network will only enhance this further,” Chester concluded.
