Eyelit's Award-winning Integrated Manufacturing Execution and Quality Software Suite Selected by Overland Storage to Support Discrete Electronics Assembly Operations

October 09, 2006
SAN JOSE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Eyelit Inc., a manufacturing software provider for visibility, control, and coordination of manufacturing operations for the electronics, life sciences, and semiconductor industries, announced today that Overland Storage, a market leader of simply protected storage solutions, purchased Eyelit's Enterprise Manufacturing Execution and Quality suite to manage and control its production operations as it restores manufacturing, test, and integration operations at the company’s San Diego, CA facility.

Eyelit was selected because of demonstrated ability to implement quickly, a very easy-to-use and understandable application, and the ability to implement a solution with little to no custom code or writing of “business rules”.

“We selected Eyelit because we were looking for a system that could support our manufacturing operations requirements as well as some additional requirements from our OEM customers. We needed a system that we could implement quickly, yet provide all of the capability we needed,” stated W. Michael Gawarecki, who serves as Vice President of Operations.

“We looked at several leading vendors; we didn’t see the capability as what we saw in the Eyelit solution and were very confident we could implement the Eyelit solution much faster, given the short timeline we had. We also liked that Eyelit and Agile, our PLM solution provider, were working together. Eyelit has been unusually flexible during both the sales and implementation processes. As an example, we signed the agreements on a Friday and the following Monday, Eyelit had a consultant on the ground here at Overland Storage. We have been extremely impressed with their support, one of the better software vendors I’ve worked with over the years,” said Carlo Saggese, IT Director, Overland Storage.

"Overland Storage’s selection of Eyelit is a significant win for Eyelit as it further expands our penetration into the discrete electronics assembly and integration market. Eyelit is the only vendor providing a fully integrated out-of-the-box, internally developed MES and CAPA solutions. We are thrilled to have Overland Storage as a customer, especially with the outstanding relationship we have developed. We look forward to a long and enjoyable relationship with Overland Storage,” stated Dan Estrada, Vice President of Sales and Business Development.
