Support at every step

The challenge

Kasai had been grappling with a cumbersome and time-consuming engineering change process based on extremely complex spreadsheets and ad-hoc communication via email.

“Engineering changes used to be completed by each individual department and the corresponding paperwork would be filed by department as well”

Bryan Simpson, Quality Manager and Deputy General Manager, Kasai UK

Our solution

In 2008, Singlepoint introduced a custom Engineering Change Management solution tailored to Kasai’s engineering change process needs.

Singlepoint has enabled Kasai to transform this process from a 100% manual exercise, into a completely automated and seamless process that provides much greater control and efficiency. 

The Results

Engineering Change is a key customer-facing activity and Singlepoint has enabled savings in both time and money and also enhanced credibility with Kasai’s primary customer.

“Now that everything’s in Singlepoint, we have one central repository and we can find the change history without having to chase around departments searching for paperwork.

Going paperless has also helped to save money and having a full history of changes means that when an audit falls, there’s no problem.”

Bryan Simpson, Quality Manager and Deputy General Manager, Kasai UK
