What our users are saying
about Bright AM

“We were losing customer parts, didn’t know what order a skid of parts belonged to, and were not able to track each Part in the work order through all of the required steps of processing.  Now, with Bright AM I am happy to say that we have a handle on this.  We can now monitor all work in progress, at every stage of processing, from order entry and contract review all the way through to shipment. We now have a prioritized job list to give our production floor staff a quick view of all the work available to them in their particular work center, processing notes, pictures, videos, and any other media we want to attach to make sure the job is done right. It has improved our overall quality and reduced our re-work because we can now tie quality management initiatives directly to individual equipment operators on the production floor.”
