We are using WATS to effectively harness our test data to be used as a business driving tool.
WATS gives you the potential to base your actions on the actual data. Often the problem is the amount of the data. WATS has the right tools to bring front every essential parameter while preserving the capability to handle full proof audit trail of the device history records.
– Lauri Anttila / Test Development Manager,
Sennheiser is rolling out WATS to their plants in Germany and New Mexico, US. Several hundred test stations will be connected and Sennheiser can follow their data in real time.
I have been working intensely with automatic test systems for the last 20 years, storing test data and analyzing them was as long as I can remember always a challenge. It stopped suddenly in the moment I started using WATS. Without spending intensive time in manual data preparation and computing, I can get test process analysis easy and quickly, which offers us an additional boost for our continuous lean activities in production.

Fast and easy to integrate
Espotel has integrated WATS into several existing test stations. It has been a pleasure to find out how easy it the commissioning can be done.
WATS has the functionality for analysis and quality improvements. Virinco guys are always listening to the customer and improving the WATS SW based on the feedback collected.

Quick to set up, easy to integrate, flexible, quick technical support
We’ve used WATS for a while, and we have around five development and production test licenses.
WATS greatly simplifies recording test results from both development testing and production testing. Small tests can quickly be made and modified throughout a product development phase, to record results from e.g. component value variations, variations in temperature/pressure, etc.
With the new WATS solution, small test environments are set up quickly and at a much lower price than earlier.
