About Compass & HQ

Scout System's suite is comprised of Compass - the work instruction software for operators, and HQ - the management suite for office workers. Together they provide an incredibly easy to use interface to assist operators through a process. If/when complications occur, the system can alert the appropriate staff to decrease down time. The system is self-learning, as it becomes more intelligent it will predict when jobs complete and even if defects are occurring.

Comments: One of the biggest things we are realizing is our labor times were off. We realize there are things done during the build process that were not accounted for and we can now capture that time accurately and reflect the cost accordingly in the quotes.

Pros: The software is easy to learn and manipulate. It is great that it can track very detailed information or it can be used in a slightly more generic way, the choice is yours. I also like that it is always up to date due to being cloud based and there is nothing to download or keep track of. The dashboards are clean and easy to navigate. The pause list is huge for production buy in. It allows the lowest level employee a voice that is heard by all.

Cons: There are a couple features that are not supported yet (batch building being the biggest for us). We have found a way to work around the problem but it would be nice to have the option. The only other thing we are having problems with is being able to juggle assembly steps due to machinery that is currently occupied so we can continue working on another part of the assembly.

Comments: We now have an accurate accounting of the time it takes to manufacture specific parts. We have identified non value added time issues and made adjustments and improvements to increase production.

Pros: This software provides accurate costs of doing business.

Cons: It is only as good as the information entered by the operators.
