ZPower: Developer of Advanced Rechargeable Batteries Selects ERP

Posted by Gerry Poe

How does a sophisticated and advance company such as ZPower with a bright future as it revolutionizes the battery industry select an ERP software system?  Today ZPower, LLC a Camarillo, Calif.-based developer of rechargeable, silver-zinc battery technology for mobile electronics, has selected the ERP software to support its operation.

ZPower President Dr. Ross Dueber says they investigated numerous ERP solutions and the final choice was the software that could "be readily adopted by a start-up company, such as ZPower, but, more importantly, was manufacturing and engineering centric with sophisticated quality management capabilities."

Choosing an ERP software system which serves the current needs of the company and be flexible enough to serve the same company in the future is also a serious consideration.

As a business evolves, management must have peace of mind in regards to a software that scales with the business. 

Dr. Ross Dueber:

"While we had home grown software systems in place, they weren't expandable to the levels needed to transition ZPower from the R&D stage into a world-class manufacturer. (the ERP software selected) is a system that will enable us to track our battery manufacturing operations in great detail. ZPower generates large amounts of data on battery design, assembly, testing and qualification so being able to bring all of that data into a central location for analysis is critical to the company's future success." -  ZPower President Dr. Ross Dueber

The reality is that many businesses survive with "home grown" only to find self imposed obstacles.  When ZPower's President Dr. Ross Dueber stated his company had "home grown software in place" , we might consider this as "we are not satisfied with only surviving" and challenges the status quo of not only their competitors but of your company as well.

ZPower has a vision and commitment to make changes in the marketplace:  ZPower says their advanced battery delivers 40% more energy than lithium-ion and how 95% of the battery elements can be recycled.  While this advancement seems almost too good to be true, ZPower is a dedicated to the vision.

This advanced battery offers superior performance over traditional microbattery technologies - delivering 40% more energy than lithium-ion and 2-3 times the energy of nickel metal-hydride. ZPower batteries also offer a green solution since 95% of the battery elements can be recycled and reused. The mercury-free design is inherently safe due to its water-based electrolyte which is not susceptible to thermal runaway. Read More from ZPower>
