＜Challenges Before i-Reporter Implementation＞
- Human errors in recording manufacturing numbers and issues due to mistakes in paper forms.
- Work overload caused by the re-entry of data from paper forms to Excel.
＜Reasons for Adopting i-Reporter＞
- The existing Excel forms seamlessly transition to electronic forms on iPads, making them easily accepted by the field.
- System implementation reduces the time required for tasks such as data transcription, processing, and verification.
＜Post i-Reporter Implementation Benefits＞
- Improvement in recording efficiency, reduction in time loss, and human errors associated with paper recording tasks.
- Access to the input system through barcode scanning and the ability to immediately input data by capturing defects in the work process directly on tablets.
- Shortened time for accessing data for work confirmation, leading to operational efficiency.
- Reduces confusion in the field and allows for easy adoption due to the simplicity of implementation.
The greatest benefit is the ease of implementation and reduction of confusion in the field
▲ Entry of forms on tablets is possible just like with the traditional Excel forms
▲ By scanning the barcode and opening the form, it is possible to input the required information directly into the necessary form on the spot.

Key Points of Implementation
Points to Consider for the Implementation of i-Reporter.
For the current implementation of i-Reporter, there are two key points to note.
The first point is to enable the client’s Thai staff to take the lead in advancing the project. We aimed to address detailed issues on the ground and incorporate them into the system. During the operational stage, efforts were made to empower the client’s Thai staff to handle operations such as creating reports using i-Reporter independently. The project progressed with the client’s Thai staff taking the lead, supported by our Thai staff.
The second point is to establish a mechanism where output reports can be effectively utilized in the field. We were able to achieve the functionality to output summary reports from daily production records entered with i-Reporter. By quickly sharing problems and challenges as they arise, the setup allows customers to easily resolve issues.
Considering these two points, the client has actively engaged in creating new reports independently after the implementation.
We are committed to continue supporting each client in achieving “Operational Efficiency with i-Reporter.”
