The Lean Machine

About Us

Studies show that 60-80% of product cost is tied to administration.
With this fact in mind, we build a quality management software product that could administer document, quality, and inventory management knowing that we wanted to be Lean about it and attack that 60-80% statistic.

Little Changes Make a Big Difference
Little Changes Make a Big Difference

Although our software is designed to give you immediate and long term quality management solutions, we know that as business environments change, your needs change.

Of course, managing changes that add capabilities without creating new problems is what The Lean Machine does best. System Settings and custom fields are two examples of built-in tools that allow us to support continuous improvement for one customer, without undermining how another customer is using the software.

We take great pride in tweaking your system with small changes that make a big difference in your business. In fact, identifying and acting on these small changes is a big part of what being lean is about.

LMBS offers the following services to customers who purchase The Lean Machine ™ software:

Custom Development

The bottom line is that you want to run your business your way. While The Lean Machine can cover a lot of those ways, there can be a few areas where it would be really great if your quality, material management, or accounting software could handle a particular process in a particular way. It’s very likely that with a modest custom development project we can help you like we did for this medical device company or for these new companies who needed to import data.

Data Integration

Using our Connection Manager software, LMBS will customize the integration between your existing data sources and The Lean Machine. This can allow you to either migrate existing data to The Lean Machine or update the data in The Lean Machine from your existing databases such as accounting, customer relations, or ERP systems for example.

Source Code Escrow Program

If for some some reason LMBS is unable to support The Lean Machine, membership in this program gives your company the ability to acquire the open source code version. With a little hourly programming support from the many qualified VBA/MS Access programmers in the world, you can make sure the software will continue to meet your needs (of course the risk of you needing this program is extremely low).

Data Migration

Is your existing quality system plagued by data that is scattered amongst several databases or spreadsheets? LMBS can customize the queries needed to bring that data into The Lean Machine so that it can be integrated with the rest of your quality system.

QMS Software
Most quality management software (QMS Software) platforms consist of document control, audit management, non-conformance tracking, corrective action, and employee training, however, our QMS Software is expanding to more areas of the business, depending on the QMS needs of your company.
