Clients Let You Scale Your System and Control Access

Start with as many clients as you need, add more when you expand the system

Three different Clients give managers the ability to quickly scale the system. Using different Clients based on user need, companies can communicate their production quality effectively across the entire organization, while still having control over specific user's access to the system. This lets each user quickly access their data without having to navigate through all of your organization's information. 


  • Add or Remove Clients to quickly scale the system
  • Each user gets their own Named User Client, allowing IT to set user access levels and control access to information
  • Clients streamline the system's use, allowing each user to get their own data quickly and efficiently
