The Opportunity

German SMEs alone are facing defect costs across the production process of €47 billion annually and all industries are affected. While some defects are only a pain for production companies and their customers, some defects are even a health threat for people. Our vision is a Zero Defect production - everywhere, evertime, for everyone.

The Solution

While 85% of product defects are generated early on in their lifecycle, most of them get fixed way too late, which is inefficient. The mission of ZeroDefects is to enable companies to prevent defects as early as possible during the production Process. We provide software as a service that enables companies to introduce and maintain the zero defects concept with complete traceability and transparency for small and medium-sized companies. The use of ZERO defects results in increased process efficiency and superior product quality. On top, our customers develop a positive and quality orientated working culture, increase production ramp-up speeds and subsequently increase profit.

You are our Sales pioneer to develop and implement a scalable sales approach. You act as an advocate for your customers, representing their ideas, needs and suggestions, thus together we can continuously improve our product suite and increase the added value of ZERO defect for our customers.
