who we work with
Crest Solutions developed a customised solution that suited our business model. They ensured the work was fully compliant and validated with industry regulations such as software applications that facilitate compliance with 21 CFR Part 11 and QMS, in line with ISO 9001.2008. Their embedded engineers and customer service levels excelled our expectations.
We were having serious issues on our line. Connect Academy from Crest Solutions came in and identified some human error issues for us. They helped our teams understand the systemic and behavioural causes of error within the business. They advised on a system which works for us and has resulted in greatly reducing our errors and costs.
I'd like to acknowledge the hard work being done by the Crest team on site here. The Crest Embedded Engineers have gone above and beyond to help us get Track and Trace projects over the line. Their training, skills and professionalism are second to none. I'd highly recommend Crest Solutions.
I would like to congratulate Jason on his work. He is highly skilled and confident at his job, great training from Crest Solutions. Not only was the line configured successfully, but also a few pre-existing issues were solved. He did a fantastic job and we couldn’t ask anything else from him. We were also delighted with the embedded engineers option provided by Crest.
I would like to thank the team from Crest Solutions for their dedication to customer service levels. Their team is always friendly and ready to provide assistance.
The Connect Academy team from Crest Solutions came into our organisation and identified several opportunities for improvements on our line. They explained to our team several issues around human error and how to avoid them. We got an immediate return on our investment through the implementation of their recommendations. Highly recommend this innovative approach.
Crest's serialisation solutions are so innovative. They partner with other leading edge companies in serialisation such as Antares Vision. We were really impressed with their camera capabilities, you don't get better than Cognex in the pharma industry. They've helped us build intelligent supply chains with end to end traceability, saving us time and money.
The installation of our new Vision system started this morning and we were executing OQ/PQ validation by this afternoon. Such successful execution within this aggressive time frame would not have been possible without extensive planning completed offline by Crest Solutions. This gave us confidence that we would have no issues during installation which was very much the case.
I could not believe how effective the PPMs that Connect Academy (Crest Solutions) developed for us were. They delivered a software solution that cut our SOPs down by more than half. Our staff are much happier - really innovative solutions.
