Why Virinco and WATS Came out on Top
Virinco is happy that, after conversations with the industry, Frost & Sullivan saw the true value that the company and the WATS platform offer to customers.
WATS solves a key problem in electronics manufacturing by making test data visible, which is the first step in achieving better quality in electronics manufacturing. Access to data leads to improved production, testing, and general manufacturing processes. Virinco’s value proposition, on top of the WATS solution, is to leverage its experience to provide customers with better ways to integrate the test data collection and evaluation into their manufacturing processes.
Virinco continues to improve its product features to meet consumer needs and to retain customers. Over the years, the company has improved WATS to become an industry leading platform in calculating true first-pass yield analysis, step-fail Pareto, rolling yield and carrying out process capability analysis, test station reporting, and real-time warnings.
Electronics manufacturers everywhere can now cover all their test data needs in one place through an off-the-shelf solution. Being recognized with this award is the cherry on top for Virinco.
As several customers witness rapid returns from WATS due to the comprehensive capability to reduce costs and increase test speed and flexibility, Virinco sees high customer retention rates.
