Santa Clara, CA - Aug. 21, 2002. QualityStream, the industry leading QMS from MetricStream, has been chosen to implement the stringent quality control standards and processes selected by TaylorMade Golf managers. TaylorMade Golf uses a complex supply chain. Suppliers from most continents cooperate in manufacturing the thousands of variations of lie, loft, face angle and other crucial attributes that give the professional and amateur golfer the control they seek. Not surprisingly, the key to TaylorMade Golf's superior quality is accurately managing hundreds of process attributes on each club - measurements taken at different times and locations, to ensure minimal variance and maximal adherence to standards. In doing this, they realized the need for an enterprise-wide footprint for supplier quality - a software that was capable of proactively managing hundreds of suppliers, thousands of SKUs and millions of inspections daily - and aggregating, analyzing and reporting that information to key business owners, as well as forming a platform for collaborating on various design, manufacturing and process management issues to fix any quality problems and glitches.anagement issues to fix any quality problems and glitches.

Ruben Inofuentes, the Chief Information Systems Architect at TaylorMade, explains the success - "A few months back, we were collecting the information from suppliers in Excel sheets, and faxing them corrective action requests and documentation. In the old days, we were merely trying to track quality, not really control it. QualityStream has truly given us the ability to manage the quality of our supply base - we do not waste time faxing and receiving documents, we have the information we need at our fingertips, and we can proactively measure and improve quality even prior to doing a single inspection ourselves. We are looking forward to leveraging the MetricStream platform to improve the quality issues associated with our reverse logistics process, our custom production processes as well as other customer facing interactions such as credit and receivables management. And we will consolidate our position as the best performance golf brand in the world. The core message to all of this is Quality. And core to our quality initiative is MetricStream."

MetricStream's client engagement manager, Albert Thomas, agrees: "We have done much more than just implementing software for TaylorMade Golf. We have studied their processes and given them a top-down solution that will grow with their business. Years from now, their Quality*Stream solution will still be relevant and will be driving them to far more stringent quality control standards. We are proud to partner with a thought leader such as TaylorMade Golf. And we love their company store, where we picked up the best woods and irons in the world!"
