Top Eyewear Manufacturer Meets its Vision of Improved Maintenance & Sales Growth


Since first opening a store with an in-house lab over 20 years ago, a popular eyewear manufacturer has been one step ahead of the competition. Today, with hundreds of locations across the country, the company has solidified its position as a leading eyewear provider committed to providing affordable, quality eyewear to its customers. As the organization continued to grow, they were seeking a solution for improving audits and equipment inspections across locations.

The company implemented FORM OpX, a cutting-edge operational excellence solution, to optimize its store audits, gain real-time insights into quality, and automate preventative maintenance on its eyewear manufacturing assets. Since adopting the mobile compliance app, the company has witnessed steady improvements in various aspects of its operations, including an overall enhancement in quality, sales growth, and improved preventative maintenance on key equipment used in the eyewear manufacturing process.

Prior to implementing FORM OpX, the eyewear retail manufacturer faced several challenges in ensuring operations were efficient and effective.
