With all respects to Jeff Foxworthy’s comedy bit, here is a short list of reasons why your company should take a look at Bluestreak or Bright-AM MES/QMS as a replacement to existing, outdated software systems for managing quality and tracking what happens on the shop floor.

 

1. You may need Bluestreak if your current software was purchased when a “Bush” was the US president.

2. You may need Bluestreak if your COBOL programmer is on life support.

3. You may need Bluestreak if you need Windows 98 to run your software.

4. You may need Bluestreak if Microsoft Access is anywhere in the conversation.

5. You may need Bluestreak if you know that DOS is an Operating System that you use daily and not the number 2.

6. You may need Bluestreak if Excel spreadsheets and Word documents are the “latest technology” your company uses.

7. You may need Bluestreak if you use a photocopier for “taking pictures” of your customer’s parts.

8. You may need Bluestreak if you always need to spend 30 minutes hunting down the “blue folder” that has all the critical part information before you can send the job to the floor.

9. You may need Bluestreak if shop floor people routinely “lose” or destroy critical paperwork, like “blue folders”.

10. You may need Bluestreak if you just “love” updating 27 computers to roll out a software update.

11. You may need Bluestreak if you have better things to do with your time than rolling back an update on 27 workstations because the “update” shut you down.

12. You may need Bluestreak if you never get notifications of available software updates, unless you call and leave 3 messages, then have to wait another 6 months to actually get one (then install/uninstall on 27 workstations…).

13. You may need Bluestreak if you’re actually beginning to like the on hold music from the 80’s while waiting for tech support.

14. You may need Bluestreak if there is not a module named “Quality” in your current software. And finally…

15. You may need Bluestreak if you simply want to crush your competitors.
