John Campbell, Operations Manager at McCormick Foods
South Bend, Indiana Area
“Have had a long relationship with GainSeeker Suite. Reliable, efficient, easy-to-use program with easy report generation. Has paid for itself many times over.”

Matt Simpson, Quality Improvement Manager at Consolidated Container Company
Cincinnati Area
“GainSeeker is a very dynamic and customizable suite with an excellent group of technical support staff. I have been able to create very unique data collection scenarios that are very operator friendly. This software has offered customization to give an operator user interface that has been unmatched in the many other quality software suites I have used in the past.”

Ralph Haynes, Operations manager [retired 2014], Quality and Packaging, for a major health and beauty products manufacturer
“I evaluated many different quality software providers. Hertzler Systems, which I used for more than 20 years, by far has the best balance for delivering a complete package and providing the structure to customize the functionality to fit your company’s requirements for inspection documentation, trending, and data reporting. All the while keeping the operators’ data input interface simple and efficient. That is the key to the best data.”

Brian Csikos, Director of Quality at America’s Region at NORMA Group
Greater Detroit Area
“I’ve purchased and implemented the GainSeeker SPC at three different organizations many times across multiple facilities. You may ask why I keep coming back. The answer is great service, a great product for a fair price. There has been no reason to go anywhere else. Most of the time I fired other software companies and brought in GainSeeker to solve our problems and save money, not to mention eliminate headaches with system breakdowns.”

Shaun Wurzner, Senior Quality Assurance Engineer at Korry Electronics
Greater Seattle Area
“My involvement with the Hertzler suite of tools spans 20 years and multiple deployments. This is not a trivial tool to say the least; it is a vehicle that if properly implemented will change the way you think and do business. As a contract manufacturer, the level of process control and traceability contributed to significant relationships with top Fortune 100 companies for their EMS requirements. We did it for process management, but appreciated the increase in revenues we realized.”

Robert Broughton, Owner at
Greater Los Angeles Area
“I’ve used GainSeeker for over 15 years, back to the DOS days. Amazing software for continuous improvement and controlling processes. Extremely powerful and customizable. Yet easy to enter data for any level of user. Also, hats off to Hertzler’s team for constantly improving the software and the A-grade support staff.” 

Jac Hand, Quality Control Supervisor at Puget Sound Energy
Greater Seattle Area
“I first used GainSeeker while I was at Esterline Controls both as a Quality and Production Manager. I brought it to Puget Sound Energy when I moved there to implement a new Quality department for Gas Operations. It is a very versatile tool, and easy to implement, but has sophisticated capabilities: The best of all worlds!” 

Terri Jostes, US Process Improvement and Quality Team Leader at BMW Financial Services
Columbus, Ohio Area
“I worked with the great team at Hertzler Systems to install the GainSeeker Suite at a local financial services business with outstanding results. We implemented SPC for turnaround times and used the data to improve our processes by giving the management team an easy-to-use tool to help them focus on root causes. Making data available to process owners in an easy-to-understand format helped us shift the culture to data-driven decision making and enabled our Lean Six Sigma deployment.” 

Larry Coburn, Director at Spangler Candy (Formerly Dir. of Operations at Crown International.)
Toledo, Ohio Area
“Gainseeker helped Crown International engineering team solve many problems by using real-time shop floor data. Gainseeker gave us the ability to try changes and have data to look at quickly to see if things were getting better or worse now was worth the cost. This real-time information helped Crown create new products quickly and problem solving field issues on older products. With clear real-time data, decisions become much more accurate and faster to finalize. It was amazing how fast Gainseeker became a significant tool of our World Class Operation.” 

Jean-Paul Louis, Operations NPI Program Manager at JDSU (Formerly Program Manager at Crown International.)
South Bend, Indiana Area
“I have been using GainSeeker while I was at Crown International in Elkhart, Indiana, and later at Omron Automotive Electronics in St Charles, Illinois. In both cases, this tool chain has been instrumental in controlling and improving the manufacturing processes to a level that I can easily qualify as world class. Now, engineering relies on the results provided by GainSeeker to track quality over time.” 

Kevin Rackham, Field Technical Services QA and R&D at Lance Private Brands
Davenport, Iowa Area
“When we installed Gainseeker it more than paid for itself in six months, and helped change the culture of quality in our plants.”
