Assent first came to us in early 2012. Their aim driving them to change was the need to automate their new facility. They have 7 fabrication shops, all side by side and each fed by CNC machinery. They needed technology that could fully automate and feed these machines with NC files.
Whatever system they were to choose, they felt sure that they needed it to be fully future-proof, and so they wanted a system which was written in the latest technology. They knew they’d need to choose a provider who was in the position to offer top quality support on a local level too, as well as account management. It was this that was the real key – choosing a company they could trust to not only implement the right software, but also be able to provide valuable support and manage it going forward.
Once the complex and precise aims of Assent had been fully established, it was decided that STRUMIS had the key features that suited Assent and their business needs, both present and predicted. STRUMIS offered all the technology they listed as requirements from the outset and also the functionality to drive production from start to finish, including bar code tracking to progress parts at the dispatch stage.
In order to reduce human error, they wanted STRUMIS to feedback files produced by their CNC machines and prompt the system once complete - improving overall traceability. This was a key feature that could be set up and working promptly and effectively.
STRUMIS continue to work closely with Assent. Assent’s spokesperson comments: "The STRUMIS system is now rolled out across our sites with many users now fully trained and using the systems effectively and efficiently. We believe STRUMIS provides us with the value added advantages of greater efficiencies, greater profitability with enhanced productivity and benefit from traceability.”
STRUMIS’ spokesperson comments: "We’re pleased that Assent are now fully implemented. The benefits of having localized support means that they can come to us at any time and we would proficiently provide them with all the information and guidance to maximize the full potential of this system in their workflow. We look forward to a working relationship with Assent for many years to come."
