- lease or purchase a perpetual GainSeeker software license
- take advantage of recommended role-based training for your staff
- use a privately hosted cloud-based system
- use mobile data collection and reporting capabilities
- integrate to your existing systems and the relative complexity

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What does GainSeeker software include?
A: Actionable information you can use to fine-tune and improve your processes and protect your brand. You’ll have all the tools you’ll need to connect, collect, analyze, and visualize data like never before.
- SPC (Statistical Process Control)
- DMS (Defect Management System)
- OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness)
- Dynamic reports
Q: Does GainSeeker feature a concurrent software license?
A: Yes. The license is based on x number of users that can be simultaneously logged into the software. “x” is the number of GainSeeker seats that your company purchases, which is usually not as large as the number of people in your company who will use it. For example, if your company purchases ten GainSeeker seats, up to ten users can be logged into GainSeeker at the same time. Your company may assign GainSeeker logins to 50, 100, or any number of people, but only ten of them will be able to access GainSeeker at any given time. An eleventh would-be user will have to wait his or her turn until someone else logs out of GainSeeker. (However, your software administrator can always reserve seats for specific individuals, such as operators entering data.)
Q: Is there an annual license renewal fee?
A: No. When you purchase GainSeeker Suite, you’re actually purchasing a perpetual license to use the software. You will not be charged to renew that license every year. This is a good question to ask before partnering with any software provider.
Q: Do you offer maintenance support for GainSeeker software?
A: Yes. Hertzler Systems offers unsurpassed software support for its GainSeeker products. HertzlerNet support is available as an optional one or two-year support contract. Hertzler is all about partnering with you to help you get the most from those products. Hertzler support, training, and consulting services are some of the best ways to do this.
Q: Our machine operators and techs need to understand data so they can help prevent issues from occurring. Do you offer training geared to these positions?
A: Yes. Training is proven to be one of the best ways of ensuring that you get the most value and quickest return on your GainSeeker investment. We offer basic-to-advanced role-based training for machine operators and on up at your site. Training costs are in addition to your GainSeeker software licensing purchase. We can help you determine which individuals in your organization would most benefit from training.
Q: My company needs a real-time data collection system more than ever, but I don’t think we’re currently in a financial position to purchase one. Are there other options?
A: Yes. Hertzler Systems offers a convenient two-year, Lease-to-Own option on GainSeeker software. You get all of the same great GainSeeker benefits that you get by purchasing the system up front.
