Nidec needed a solution that that could manage their customer requests globally. Laiz Maia, Nidec Global Appliance’s technical support specialist in Quality, emphasised that the company needed a system that was easily accessible by all plants in the group. “We were looking for an online system that could document all the root cause analysis actions and action plans,” she said.
The project includes the implementation of SE Workflow, Problem, Form and Analytics modules, which are now used by customer quality teams in all of the company’s plants. In addition, other areas that have contact with customers also use the solution including Logistics, Technical Support, Sales and Manufacturing.
According to Laiz, with the SoftExpert Excellence Suite solution, all units are currently able to easily access detailed customer requests, with action plans and defined causes.
Liaz also highlighted how easy it is to create and configure new users in the system. “Today, all employees who need it have access to the software system. When a new user is created, they automatically appear in the system. We just have to configure the permission license and, in two minutes, they are using the tool. This speedy process is a great differential,” she said.
Another great feature is the ability for users to access the system via mobile phone or tablet, allowing, for example, a customer quality engineer to register a request in real time while visiting a customer, by using a mobile phone camera to share photos and videos directly in the tool.
