The newest release, Version 7.5 provides greater flexibility and ease of use so that customers are more productive, save more time, and have an even simpler work environment. Overall the new system makes it easier to collect, manage, analyze and report critical process information – that is turn data into knowledge.

Among the many new features in the new release, noted highlights include:

  • Increased flexibility and ease of use in retrieving standard reports, thereby saving time and reducing complexity.
  • Lot genealogy tracking simplifies compliance and improves accountability in any regulated environment.
  • Simplified interface to JMP improves integration for JMP users.

  • Data Base Integration Wizard provides better, cheaper, faster setup of data acquisition from any ODBC data source. This is especially valuable in transactional applications for extracting cycle time or defect data from legacy data systems.

  • Over two-dozen new features added to data entry system to simplify setup while providing more control over the user interface.

As with all product upgrades, the Hertzler development team continues to respond to specific customer feedback and requests.

“With every release cycle we focus on a couple of key themes,” commented Evan Miller, President of Hertzler Systems. “In Version 7.4 we released our Analysis Wizard, which does an incredible job of helping users quickly get to the underlying contributors to variation in a system. In Version 7.5 we turned our attention to data access and data integration. Our goal was to simplify and speed up everything related to getting data and sharing knowledge. I’m really excited about the gains we’ve made with this new release, and our customers are going to love it.”

Hertzler’s Chief Technology Officer, Byron Shetler, concurred: “There are a couple of features that stand out for me in this release. The new Database Integration Wizard makes grabbing data from any ERP or business system a snap. Complex tasks that once took a highly skilled person hours or even days to accomplish, can now be completed by an average user in a matter of minutes. Another example is the new Get External Data function; now users can drag and drop data from a spreadsheet or a web page or any other source and in a couple clicks view it as a control chart. It is a really slick and easy-to-use interface.”

Current customers may be eligible for a free update to the new release. Customers should contact their distributor or their account representative for details.
