How Compressport Tracks Samples More Efficiently with WFX

Challenges they faced

Compressport's pre-WFX era was marked by significant operational challenges. The core issue lay in the disorganized management of product history, heavily reliant on email exchanges. This approach led to a cumbersome process for tracking product developments, samples, and supplier communications.

Additionally, internal and external collaborations were hampered by a lack of centralized communication and data management. This fragmentation in workflows resulted in inefficiencies, particularly in managing sample requests and maintaining clear records.

Furthermore, the scattered nature of their data storage, with essential information dispersed across various platforms, intensified the need for a unified system to consolidate all product-related details, catering to their globally dispersed team.

WFX is a very ergonomic and complete system and has fulfilled most of our needs by centralizing our product history and information in one place. It helps communicate more easily with suppliers and keep track of all the samples, comments, and modifications from one sample to another.
