Happy Holiday Season

by David Salamanek

Thank you, 2017 was a great year!

As the year draws to a close, and everyone rushes to put the finishing touches on the last of the projects, we would like to take a moment and share how much we appreciate our customers, staff and partners and what they bring to our world.

The past year has been one of the most active and interesting in recent memory.  SEAL has engaged in work with over 300 new and existing projects from our customers.  From creating new ways to procure and view 3D data on the SAP and various PLM platforms, to working with digital applications in mobility, through complexities in compliance requirements for EAR, DFARS, FAA, FDA and more, this truly has been a wild ride. Thank you!

Recipe for Success – Paperless Production

by Debra Garls

Paperless production means that companies move toward the goal of eliminating all paper from their processes and convert to an all-digital environment. This means using a system to keep track of the things you would normally store in a filing cabinet or folder, like vendor information, documentation, user manuals, time sheets, work orders, reports... the list goes on and on.

People’s perception of what constitutes the paperless shop floor may vary from individual to individual and indeed from company to company, but if you are looking to get all the benefits from going ‘paperless’ it needs to be much more than displaying documents that were formerly printed and held on the shop floor.

by David Salamanek

Regulatory compliance is a complex, ever changing challenge for companies. It is a target that can shift and change on a daily, sometimes, hourly bases. In today’s Global market, missing the target can mean penalties, loss of import rights and even a kind of public shaming that can reduce the confidence of shareholders along with the market value of a company. Getting compliance right is important. It matters.

Upgrading to S/4HANA

by David Salamanek

SEAL Systems is officially certified on the S/4HANA platform.  We have already worked with a number of customers to upgrade to this platform in 2017.

In order to support customers with the transition to S/4HANA “On Premise”, we test current SEAL Systems add-ons on S/4HANA and adjust them where necessary. These tests have shown that in many cases the solutions work unchanged in S/4HANA. Small adjustments were necessary in some places, as interfaces and field lengths have changed.  We have developed a S/4HANA connector to help make this transition as seamless as possible for our customers, both new and current.
