PLATO had great dialogues with members of the World Conference on Quality and Improvement (ASQ) in Indianapolis. This years WCQI, organized by the well-respected American Society for Quality, was scheduled from May 6th to 8th. This years motto was „Managing Change“. The PLATO booth was well located in the middle of the exhibitor hall.
The audience was mixed. Beside a lot of companies from the automotive and medical device industry, manufacturers of construction machines, whiskey producers and QM specialists from Kasachstan stopped by at our booth.
The first visitor was our customer Jonson Controls, who was very happy with the additional options of SCIO Methods and the future plans to integrate AQTIO™ and XERI™ more deeply.
The PLATO-video and Give-Aways like the famous German Niederegger Marzipan („Best candy of the show“) were good incentives to draw the people to our booth.
Additionally we had good discussions outside of the Conference. We visited evening events like ASQ-Networking Events in Hotel Suites and the official ASQ-dinner in the Marriott ballroom.
On our way back to the airport we stopped by at our customer DELPHI. The engineers there showed us there professional work with the SCIO™-Template-Manager. Our presentation of the Web-Portal and XERI™, which allows a FMEA-Sign Off to a professional document management system were well received.
PLATO has a positive feeling from getting feedback from the US Market regarding our Software functionality, especially our Web-Strategy. Additionally to another Sales Trip planned in summer we already look forward to invite you to our 2. SCIO User Day in Troy/Michigan on Oct. 10th. We already have commitments from customers to talk about there experience with PLATO Software over there.
