Deploying a system of machine vision cameras and sensors comes with substantial capital investment. Manufacturers need to purchase all the camera equipment, determine lighting and mounting requirements, procure and configure computing resources, set up data storage, purchase required software licenses, and hire a systems integrator to implement, integrate, and fine-tune the complete system before it can be rolled out into production. And that’s just before the go-live date.
Once the system is operational, it requires ongoing maintenance, annual license renewals, hardware upgrades, software updates, and periodic addition of new features to keep up with changing and growing business requirements.
The growing popularity of cloud computing has made it possible for companies to implement software applications on a subscription basis. The latest cloud-based quality control robotics systems can also utilize the pay-as-you-use model to help manufacturers reduce capital expenses and get up and running with modern quality control automation faster.
Elementary delivers its revolutionary cloud-based quality control systems as a service – minimizing your upfront investment, reducing time to value, and ensuring that your system is always up to date with the latest features and technologies.
Benefits of Elementary’s subscription model: A turnkey system that’s ready to use: When you purchase your system from Elementary, we set up and configure all its elements according to your specifications.
