InspectionXpert Corporation Announces QualityXpert® Beta

Logo Quality 400 x 86

APEX, North Carolina – InspectionXpert Corporation looks to revolutionize shopfloor quality management with today’s launch of their QualityXpert Beta. This first-in-class cloud-based quality management system is designed for precision manufacturers who are seeking a platform to transform the way that they define, measure, analyze, improve and control their manufacturing processes.  QualityXpert provides precision manufacturers with visual data-collection at the source of production, automatic quality alerts, real-time reporting and easy access to their data.

“QualityXpert is a game changer for precision manufacturers who are looking to improve their quality inspection processes from inspection setup, measuring, and controlling to reporting and analyzing, all in real time,” said Jeff Cope, Founder and CTO of InspectionXpert Corporation. “The common use of spreadsheets and legacy SPC systems results in silos of dispersed and untraceable data, which causes manufacturing personnel to operate from different sources of truth.  QualityXpert solves this problem by managing all inspection results in a secure cloud-system with full traceability on all measurements and real-time actionable insights to improve processes and reduce waste.”

QualityXpert integrates seamlessly with InspectionXpert Corporation’s market-leading inspection planning tool, InspectionXpert OnDemand 2.0.  The integration of InspectionXpert OnDemand 2.0 with the QualityXpert platform will facilitate fast and accurate creation of inspection plans by extracting inspection characteristics (e.g. dimensions, tolerances, notes, etc…) from 2D drawings and/or 3D models quickly and accurately and then uniquely identifying each of them with a unique balloon number prior to publishing them to the QualityXpert platform.  This seamless integration enables InspectionXpert customers to go from CAD to shopfloor data-collection and SPC in minutes rather than hours or days.

“Our team has been working with precision manufactures for years to prioritize and fine tune the capabilities of QualityXpert, from quality inspection planning and in-process inspections to alerts and dynamic reporting. With the launch of our Beta Program, we are excited to have our customers experience a new level of quality inspection ease of use and power, said Jeff.”

As of October 4th, all InspectionXpert customers may sign up for the official Beta Program at www.qualityxpert.com. The Beta Program runs until November 3rdth, 2016 and is free to all current InspectionXpert customers.  Top Beta Testers will be recognized at the end of the Beta Period. For a preview of the QualityXpert Beta visit MCADCafé to view an interview of founder Jeff Cope at IMTS introducing QualityXpert.

InspectionXpert announces release of next generation product InspectionXpert® OnDemand 2.0

APEX, North Carolina – InspectionXpert Corporation announced today the release of the latest version of its market-leading InspectionXpert OnDemand® software, Version 2.0. InspectionXpert OnDemand 2.0 was made available on Friday, September 9th at 12:00PM EDT.

“This is our most valuable release ever because it dramatically increases the capabilities of the software. InspectionXpert OnDemand 2.0 works with 2D drawings and 3D models in a single software application, and delivers the ease of use we are known for.” said Jeff Cope, Founder and CTO of InspectionXpert Corporation. “Best of all, our software is available and updated via the web with ClickOnce installation, so our users get all these new features automatically, and can use them anywhere, any time to maximize quality planning effectiveness.”

In today’s manufacturing market, companies are required to comply with increasingly rigid quality verification of their products. InspectionXpert software addresses this challenge by providing a software application that can be installed quickly, is easy to learn, and that can deliver the required manufacturing first article inspection documents and related technical data packages in 50% to 90% less time.

Unlike many of the other products on the market that provide only a single solution for each specific data set, InspectionXpert OnDemand combines all of the required document types in one product including 3D CAD Models, 2D CAD Drawings and PDF data. A simplified user interface streamlines operations and supports a faster, more accurate and complete first article inspection data package into a single inspection report.  Additionally, InspectionXpert OnDemand delivers an enhanced user interface combining visual communication and accurate characteristic data in an integrated heads up display. Users work more efficiently, because they can find the functions they require faster with a graphical user interface that eliminates the distraction of searching for functions that can lead to mistakes.

InspectionXpert OnDemand 2.0 will be available for download within InspectionXpert Corporation’s website, software portal. Downloads for InspectionXpert OnDemand for CAD will no longer be as of the release of 2.0.

As of September 9th, all new purchases and trials will be for IXOD 2.0 only. Current users of InspectionXpert OnDemand will be able to automatically upgrade to Version 2.0 via our Software Portal using the same serial number as their current OnDemand-based licensing. In addition to the new features and capabilities in Version 2.0, current users will have trial access for a limited period of time to other supported file formats at no additional cost.  Current license fees remain in effect for all software licenses to the end of the year. In the meantime, IXC will provide updated pricing that is intended to give all users even more selection, flexibility and value. Customers using “Local License Server” or “OnPremise Server” licensing, will be issued updated licenses if needed.

In order to smooth the transition, InspectionXpert will keep the previous versions of its software online and available, allowing existing InspectionXpert OnDemand commercial customers the choice to use Version 2.0 or continue using the InspectionXpert OnDemand until October 12, 2016. Leading up to the date of October 12, we will be notifying all commercial customers that all previous versions of InspectionXpert software will be discontinued as of October 12th. On the 12th all users will only be able to use Version 2.0 according to their current licenses.

InspectionXpert’® Expanding Advisory Board & Solidifies Mission Vision

6/20/2016   
InspectionXpert is elated to announce a new member to InspectionXpert’s Board of Advisors, Donald Thompson. The cloud-based quality inspection software company decided recently to enhance its advisory board to help better guide the explosive growth the firm has experienced over the past eight years.  Donald is a creative strategist who embodies the type of board member that understands the path InspectionXpert wants to take in the future and knows how to support its evolution.  He has worked with Jeff Cope, the CEO of InspectionXpert, in multiple capacities for over ten years.

InspectionXpert develops software solutions and services for manufacturing quality professionals.  Since 2004, InspectionXpert Corporation has been dedicated to “Manufacturing Quality Made Simple.”

InspectionXpert is devoted to helping its diverse customer base of manufacturers solve their quality inspection challenges by delivering best in class software solutions and fanatical customer service.

The InspectionXpert product line continues to grow with new OnDemand, Cloud and On-Premise software solutions and its services team is providing direct quality management services to a growing list of manufacturing leaders and suppliers.

Currently, Thompson is the CEO for Creative Allies, an integrated marketing firm that focuses on helping celebrity and consumer brands execute marketing campaigns. Donald also serves on Boards for iCiDIGITAL, O3 Creative, and several other companies and upstarts in North Carolina.  He was also appointed by Governor McCrory to the North Carolina Board of Science, Technology and Innovation, and is an emeritus member of the strategic advisory board for North Carolina State University‘s Computer Science Department.  Donald is also the franchise owner for the Navi Mumbai Sabers of the Elite Football League of India.

InspectionXpert is excited to utilize Thompson’s knowledge and expertise in addition to the other members of the Advisory Board to aid in expanding the reach and enhancing the quality of the company. Donald has some of the most diverse experience to be found in the Triangle area. Previously, Donald was CEO of the technology firm I-Cubed and grew the company to a global organization, going from 16 to 130 employees and recording annual revenue growth of 30%, from 2008-2013.  It was that kind of gumption and forward thinking that spawned an instant friendship when he and Jeff first started working together at I-Cubed.

In his role with InspectionXpert, Thompson will work with the board offering strategic business advice and counsel on topics related to the advancement of technology and is excited to work and see InspectionXpert expand their current reach into new markets and build leaders.

Thompson is excited to join the board and says, “I have always been impressed with the market leadership position that InspectionXpert has built through innovative, customer-focused software solutions and excellent customer support for their diverse customer base in aerospace, medical device, automotive and oil & gas equipment manufacturing.”

Jeff Cope believes this is an inflection point in InspectionXpert’s evolution and added  “InspectionXpert is confident that Donald will be crucial in helping our team turn challenges into opportunities while adding a valuable perspective to enhance the strategic plan at InspectionXpert.”

InspectionXpert OnDemand 2015 SP03 has been released!

2/11/2016    

InspectionXpert OnDemand 2015 SP03 Release Notes

With this release, we take a major step toward making our software more flexible and powerful–thanks to valuable input from our users!

  • Customizable Balloon Numbering – Users can now edit Item numbers in the Characteristics table to create custom numbering schemes.

  • Balloon Sequencing – This feature provides even more control over creating custom numbering sequences, allowing numbering to be driven by user defined settings automatically as characteristics are extracted.

  • ‘Skin’ chooser – For users that preferred the look of the previous InspectionXpert user interface, this option allows them to switch back to our classic interface.

  • Improved Localization – Further improved foreign language application localization.

 

1. Customizable Balloon Numbering – Do your inspection plans require non-sequential balloon numbering? This new feature allows users to quickly edit the “Item #” field in the Bill of Characteristics to quickly create a custom balloon numbering scheme. Please review the images below for a more detailed overview.

2016-01-20_15-27-03

Double click on an ‘Item #’ cell to edit the value.

2016-01-20_15-27-20

Enter the desired value.

 

2016-01-20_15-29-26

Balloons and Characteristics are automatically renumbered after hitting enter on the keyboard.

This feature can also be used to quickly reorder characteristics in the list.

2016-01-20_15-35-24

The characteristic is automatically moved to the specified location in the list.

 

2. Balloon Sequencing – For users that like Customizable Balloon Numbering enhancement, but want a workflow that allows them to drive the balloon sequencing as characteristics are extracted instead of after, this is the feature for you. This new functionality provides users with the ability to define multiple ‘Balloon Sequence’ settings for a project, specifying a name and a start value for each sequence. These settings can even be stored in a Project Template for use on future projects. Prior to extracting characteristics, users simply need to select the desired ‘Balloon Sequence’ from the Home ribbon menu. Please see the images and explanations below for more details. Note: Balloon Sequencing and Customizable Balloon Numbering features cannot be used in conjunction with one another.

2016-01-20_16-15-58

Settings are defined under ‘Options’>’Project Options’>’Ballooning’>’Balloon Sequence’

 

2016-01-20_16-35-23

  • Tom Galloway • 158 days ago We have tried to use the custom balloon numbering as shown above. It does not work, we have to manually change every number thereafter not start with say 300 then next balloon is 301, no it goes to the last ballooned number say 61 and you have to change it to 301.
  • Paul Summers • 173 days ago Awesome! A greatly appreciated feature
