New quality management software for manufacturers from Farmington Hills firm

FARMINGTON HILLS — Cebos, the quality management monitoring software developer, announced the launch of a new version of its Cebos QMS softwaer as well as a faster upgrade process.

Farmington Hills-based Cebos, founded in 1995, is a division of the Santa Barbara, Calif.-based software company QAD Ltd. (Nasdaq: QADA, QADB).

The company said the new HTML-based software “offers substantial technical and performance improvements over the existing client-server solution.”

The company also said the new release “is fully mapped to the International Automotive Task Group (IATF) 16949 revised 2018 requirements, which take effect in September 2018, and includes two new applications for risk management and team performance management.”

The company said that while the new release is engineered for the cloud, flexible deployment options allow customers to integrate it with their on-premise ERP systems.

“The 2018 Cebos release is very important for Cebos and its customers,” said Tom Seadler, Cebos president. “The solution foundation features significant improvements to stability, performance and ease of system management. We also made nearly 100 enhancements to the application suite to help automotive suppliers comply with the new IATF regulations. In addition, Cebos 2018 features embedded best practices based on ISO 9001 standards, which helps not only the automotive vertical but also medical device manufacturers, contract manufacturers, industrial product manufacturers and consumer product manufacturers with a focus on quality.”

The company said the new upgrade conversion process enables most existing customers still using the client-server version of the solution to rapidly complete their upgrades to the latest, HTML-based version. As part of the new upgrade process, Cebos conducts a preliminary migration analysis, installs the new software, performs the migration and completes the initial testing. The customer then performs detailed data validation before turning on the new version.

Cebos software helps ensure that companies are in compliance with government regulations and industry standards for quality management. Most compliance frameworks include requirements for top management leadership, employee training, and regular, structured audits, and Cebos helps document results and demonstrate conformance.
