“Our Operators wouldn’t use our computers
and ERP System until we installed QwickACCESS".
Lead IT Administrator
A well-known North American leader in Fabrication recently deployed QwickACCESS with its unique proximity badge functionality to provide fast, easy, and secure computer access to their SAP system. Prior to implementing QwickACCESS, data was entered onto paper forms by operators on the floor during the course of their shift. Those forms were collected, reviewed, and approved by a supervisor, and the data was then entered into the SAP system.
With QwickACCESS deployed across the manufacturing environment, operators simply tap their badge at the beginning of a shift to login. They
need only to type in their password at that initial login to access their
unique Windows session, then click the SAP icon to launch SAP, and
their SAP session remains active during their entire shift. Each time they
are finished accessing the SAP application, they simply “tap-out” to secure
their session. When they need to re-access their SAP session, they
simply “tap-in” again, and are brought back to their SAP session in seconds
as they had previously left it.
Operators now enter data real time directly into the SAP system running on
PC’s provided on mobile carts out on the floor. This has eliminated the need
for supervisors to review data on paper at the end of a shift, and then
enter the data into SAP. We are now leveraging the efficiencies of the SAP
system, while improving the productivity of our operators and supervisors
on the floor. And, from an IT administrator’s perspective, QwickACCESS is extremely simple to deploy and to manage. Scalability was also
an important part of our decision to purchase QwickACCESS as we are
now going to roll out this solution to the rest of our facilities.
