Modular system instead of isolated solutions
While preparing for the energy audits, the company noticed that many processes were not efficient enough. For example, various isolated solutions were used in the EHS area: Access databases and Word files, lists for tracking actions, as well as specific software programs for hazardous chemicals and waste. All told, things were not exactly working well. Thus the machine builder looked around for a better system. The results of the search on the German market were, however, nothing but further isolated solutions. “Our key requirement for the new system was that we would be able to centrally manage our waste and hazardous chemicals, but at the same time be able to better control internal audits and actions. As an integrated solution for all these key areas, Quentic really suited our needs,” says Walter Däumler, Head of Quality and Environmental Management at ARBURG. Since then, roughly 50 audits and on-site inspections, as well as numerous technical inspections are planned, documented and assessed using the software every year.
