MISSION VIEJO, CA–(Marketwired – May 6, 2015) – Ease Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based process performance solutions, today announced that it has been named a Gartner Cool Vendor in Manufacturing Operations, 2015. The report recognizes four companies who “support variable product content through the manufacturing process and improve the visibility and analysis of manufacturing performance1” within the manufacturing market.

In the April 29, 2015 Cool Vendors in Manufacturing Operations report “Gartner estimates that on average, 70% of the data generated in production environment (either by the production process directly or through audits and inspections) is never put to plausible use.1” Manufacturers that utilize this data gain a greater understanding of their operations and processes leading to new insights and opportunities for continuous improvement.

Ease has a unique perspective in the marketplace by placing primary focus on the operator and improving their work flow and efficiency. By increasing operator engagement at every stage, our customers have been able to uncover previously hidden opportunities to improve product quality, consistency and efficiency,” said Eric Stoop, CEO of Ease Inc. “We are especially excited about the upcoming launch of Ease Beacon, a revolutionary and flexible approach to process audits, safety inspections and performance monitoring and reporting.”
