PASO ROBLES, CA — Detector Technology Inc. selected IQMS as its ERP and MES software provider.

Headquartered in Palmer, MA, DeTech is a global ISO 9001-certified manufacturer that specializes in channel electron multipliers for vacuum assemblies, glass extrusion and fabrication for the fiber optic community, motion control products, and contract clean room assembly. The company is implementing IQMS EnterpriseIQ software, which uniquely combines robust enterprise resource planning (ERP) and MES functionality into one comprehensive system. With the move to IQMS, DeTech is furthering its drive to grow the business through enhancements to its inventory control, scheduling, on-time delivery, and communications between sites and departments.

DeTech has recently expanded though acquisition, and it now operates out of multiple facilities totaling over 60,000 square feet of vertically integrated manufacturing. DeTech serves customers across North America, Europe, and Asia. Additionally, the manufacturer needs to communicate with its suppliers around the world.

For years, DeTech managed a significant portion of its manufacturing process using several systems. Not only were the legacy systems aging; they weren’t integrated enough to provide a unified view of the business. Faced with the need to maintain agility while continuing its expansion, DeTech began evaluating modern manufacturing solutions that would give all the sites where it operated access to common data. The review of solutions led DeTech to select IQMS based on the software’s comprehensive capabilities. In particular, the company was impressed by IQMS’s MES capabilities, ease of use, and potential for data capture.

“The biggest factor in choosing IQMS was the MES monitoring system. We liked how this was directly integrated into the IQMS software and appeared to be easy to set up from a hardware perspective,” said Laura Ray, vice president, Detector Technology, Inc. “Another factor was the simplicity of the overall software. Almost every employee that I spoke with after the demos liked the look and feel of IQMS better than the other products we demoed, and IQMS came across as being more intuitive.”

Ray added, “We also felt that IQMS wanted to help us solve our problems and work with us to implement solutions. IQMS took the time to understand our business and how its software could fit into the model we have in place while also suggesting best practices. We’re impressed by both IQMS’s software and support, which have given us the confidence that we are well-positioned to compete globally as we continue to grow the business.”
