Easiest way to set up a production workflow

Reviewed 3 years ago

ION has brought great value to our company. It's very easy to use and set up. The customer service is amazing! The team really listens to your feedback in order to improve the product. If ION can't do something you need right now, it will likely get added or there is a sufficient work around. Highly recommend using ION!

Pros

ION is super easy to set up! You can get running with it within a few days and immediately make an impact on your production workflow. Having your work instructions directly in the software and not in some other system is a huge benefit. The ability to track the as-built BOM and collect data during the execution of runs is extremely valuable.

Cons

There are some edge cases and bugs that still need to be sorted out. There are some features that are lacking like in app reports, but there are good workarounds until they get a chance to implement it. Consumption of material for 3D printing applications needs to be improved.

The future of manufacturing is bright

Reviewed 3 years ago

We were decently early adopters with Ion and have seen the software grow into a more and more powerful toolbox.

Pros

Ion is going to revolutionize the field of work instructions and inventory management. The support team is knowledgeable, helpful, and easy to work with. While working with the team, it feels like they're part of your internal team when finding solutions within Ion.

Cons

The price seems to be a little aggressive for the software when compared with alternatives. The per user price keeps the software from being fully adopted by the company to find solutions of their own.

Still in development with great promise

Reviewed 4 years ago

The heavy focus on data and metrics, and features like Trace, showcase Ion's value to quality as well as manufacturing departments.

Pros

easy to begin using and customizing. The development team is responsive and value and use your suggestions for bettering the program.

Cons

As it is still in development, some features do not exist and others are not fully fleshed out yet.

Ion is a must have!

Reviewed 3 years ago

The FR team is amazing and truly helpful. Highly responsive and very intimate with the software.

Pros

The software is the highly useful for config tracking, mfg documentation and build tracking. It is the bridge between manual tracking and an expensive PLM system.

Cons

The product was not the issue, it was the timing that was not right.
