42Q Named as a “Top 10 Manufacturing Execution System Provider” for 2016

Cloud MES Solution Included in Manufacturing Tech Insights Annual “Top 10 MES” List

San Jose, Calif., November 29, 2016 – 42Q, a leading provider of cloud manufacturing execution systems (MES), today announced that the company has been named as one of the “Top 10 Manufacturing Execution System Providers for 2016” by Manufacturing Tech Insights Magazine. Compiled by a distinguished panel of prominent CEOs, CIOs, venture capitalists and industry analysts, along with the Manufacturing Tech Insights editorial board, this prestigious list includes companies that are at the forefront of providing cutting-edge technology solutions for manufacturers. The list was featured in the October 2016 issue of the publication and includes an in-depth profile of 42Q and interview with CEO Bob Eulau.

42Q’s cloud-based solution solves key challenges that manufacturing organizations face today. With robust and proven functionality, 42Q helps manufacturers more easily cross traditional boundaries of automation, engineering, operations and IT. Currently deployed in more than 50 factories worldwide, 42Q’s proven, scalable solution allows organizations to eliminate the lengthy infrastructure acquisition and configuration process, and deploy the system immediately.

“The 42Q cloud solution goes beyond the limitations of traditional MES” said Eulau. “42Q accelerates the implementation of machine to machine communications, real-time data collection and processing, analytics, and other key elements of the Industrial Internet of Things and Industry 4.0. We believe our technology provides unparalleled benefits to leading-edge customers, and we’re proud to be recognized by Manufacturing Tech Insights during 42Q’s first year of operation.”

As a cloud based solution, 42Q provides several immediate benefits compared with traditional on premise solutions. These benefits include faster implementation and lower up-front costs.  According to LNS Research, “only 20 percent of manufacturing facilities currently have an integrated MES solution installed and, in the past, the thought of implementing a large scale MES solution has been daunting. An easy to deploy, cloud-based solution, with the right applications and shop floor connectivity for discrete manufacturing, can help many to overcome the difficulties of getting started.”

42Q delivers a comprehensive and proven cloud MES solution which operates between an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system and the manufacturing equipment in a factory, enabling a factory to easily, and more cost effectively implement the key elements of a smart factory and Industry 4.0.
