The Future of Component Control’s Software

I am attending the Que Group Conference in San Diego this week. My main purpose is to speak at the conference about distinguishing approved parts from unapproved parts and recognizing counterfeit parts, but I found myself impressed with the way that Quantum Control is developing.

They announced and discussed over 400 improvements. Some are quite noticeable and other simply improve processes by making them faster and easier.

They also discussed what is coming next in Quantum, which is even more fascinating.

They explained that everyone has different performance metrics, so they are improving the way that people create “dashlets.” Dashlets are the ways that data is represented on the dashboard, and include charts and graphs of the data that is most important to the user.  

Quantum is also improving the way that their product works on mobile devices, with more mobile device-specific applications and functions.  

Component Control President Todd Lewis explained that use of their stock market has increased. There was a 23% increase in searches last year and 13% more vendors on the stock market.

They are also trying to improve the ability to close deals and track repairs through the Quantum Portal. In the future, they hope to be able to better support repair quotes, and exchange of ongoing repair status, between repair stations and the parties sending them work.

They also working on ways to improve event management and contact management, they hope to be able to include functionality to better manage and track repair events, so that status can be tracked and potential hurdles like late repair deliveries can be better anticipated and managed.

They noted that Windows Ten will pose problems for earlier versions of Quantum, so they are writing new code to permit integration with that new operating system. But they warned that current users should be careful about moving to Windows Ten before that new Quantum functionality has been written.
