Tempo Automation Demonstrates the Advantages of Its Automated Printed Circuit Board Assembly Factory at DesignCon

Company continues to transform electronics product development with new smart factory in San Francisco & significant updates to its factory automation software

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 30, 2019 / — Tempo Automation, the world’s fastest electronics manufacturer for prototyping and low-volume production of printed circuit board assemblies (PCBA), announces the opening of a new smart factory in San Francisco. Highlighted at DesignCon in Tempo Automation’s Booth #200, the company has also released new product software updates as part of its continued mission to improve the way electrical engineers, product designers, and manufacturers bring their innovations to market.

With its impressive expansion in high-growth markets, including aerospace and defense, medical technology, and autonomous and electric vehicles, Tempo needed to increase its production capacity, opening a new 42,000 square foot smart factory in San Francisco’s Design District in August 2018. Tempo’s new factory immediately doubled the company’s production capacity, with space to expand output even more to accommodate its customers’ growing demands. The new factory also includes more corporate office space to house Tempo’s growing software, sales, and marketing teams, which have more than doubled in the last year.

“Tempo has seen tremendous growth over the last year as more customers in a range of industries see how we can help them get great products to market faster. Our proprietary automation software enables our factory to produce complex printed circuit board assemblies with unmatched quality and speed,” says Jeff McAlvay, CEO, Tempo Automation. “By delivering improved speed, reliability, and transparency to our customers, Tempo empowers innovators to bring their designs to market faster—a boon for competitive industries like aerospace, medtech, industrial automation, consumer electronics, and automotive.”

To further accelerate the product development cycle from design to manufacture, Tempo also delivers a host of significant product software updates. With these updates, Tempo further empowers engineers to increase the speed with which they can bring their electronics products to market.
Tempo’s new product software updates include:

• The Tempo Order Tracker

At each stage of the manufacturing process, the Order Tracker automatically displays status updates—from the initial order, throughout the SMT and inspection processes on the factory floor, to shipment—giving the customer real-time visibility into the progress of their board build.

• Tempo’s Automatic Pick and Place Machine Programming software

Tempo’s factory is auto-configured for production, as the system analyzes the CAD files and Bill of Material (BOM) data customers upload via the company’s web portal. Each machine in the production line is programmed automatically, and a build plan is uploaded as a digital traveler to the devices that factory employees use. This update enables Tempo to yield event faster production of PCB assemblies and on-time delivery.

• Tempo’s Automated Optical Inspection Auto-Program Generation software

New software updates from Tempo further the company’s ability to deliver high complexity designs at unparalleled quality and speed by speeding the automated inspection of finished PCB assemblies.

As part of their mission to empower designers to work with manufacturers throughout the entire build process, Tempo also releases at DesignCon a new book, Design for Manufacturing for HDI Printed Circuit Boards: What You Need to Know for Board Build Success. Focused on HDI (High Density Interconnect) PCBA builds, the new literature details the source of HDI manufacturing challenges and shows how engineers can avoid the traps that compromise manufacturability. Visitors to the Tempo Automation booth (#200) at DesignCon can receive a free copy of this book.

OnPage Doubles Growth Through Strategic Integration Alliances to Benefit Managed Service Providers

OnPage logo


OnPage's Integration Strategy Enables MSPs to Manage Ticketing and Incident Alert Management Within One User Interface

Our MSP customers look to OnPage to help them grow their businesses, streamline operations and keep their teams motivated and with these enhanced integrations, we can deliver value in all these areas.”

— Judit Sharon – OnPage CEO

WALTHAM, MA, UNITED STATES, January 30, 2019 / — OnPage, the leading provider of incident alert management has doubled its year-over-year revenue attained from the managed service provider (MSP) market. This increase in revenue is attributed to OnPage’s strategic integration alliances with the top providers of professional service automation (PSA) solutions and ticketing software providers including Datto’s Autotask, ConnectWise Manage and ServiceNow.

These alliances are a response to an increase in demand for automation within the MSP sector. While PSAs and ticketing platforms provide MSPs with automation surrounding the ticketing process, many fail to keep up with service level agreements (SLAs) due to a lack of alert automation. OnPage has stepped in and provided MSPs with the ability to convert incoming service tickets to smart alerts via tight integrations to Datto’s Autotask, ConnectWise Manage and ServiceNow, enabling ticketing and award-winning incident alert management within one pane of glass.

OnPage provides bi-directional communication between its incident alert management platform and ticketing systems popular with the MSP market. An incident alert management system, tightly integrated with a ticketing solution, will ensure that not only is an incident reported and catalogued, but that notification is completed all the way to the “last mile”, with the right tech receiving and responding quickly to a critical incident alert and that mean time to resolution (MTTR) is reduced. With OnPage’s Alert-Until-Read patented technology, alerts triggered by high priority tickets are sent to the assigned tech on his or her smartphone via the OnPage secure app, with a loud, distinctive alarm that gets attention at any time of day or night. On-call schedules are also synced with incident alert management, to make sure the right person gets alerted no matter what day or time the critical notification is triggered.

“We are delighted with the response to OnPage’s integration offerings,” said Judit Sharon, OnPage CEO. “Our MSP customers look to OnPage to help them grow their businesses, streamline operations and keep their teams motivated and with these new and enhanced integrations, we can deliver value in all these areas.”

About OnPage

OnPage’s award-winning incident alert management system for MSP professionals provides the industry’s only ALERT-UNTIL-READ notification capabilities. Built around the incident resolution lifecycle, OnPage helps MSPs and their clients get the most out of their digital investments, ensuring that sensors, monitoring systems and people have a reliable way to escalate critical alerts to the right person immediately.

OnPage’s escalation, redundancy and scheduling features ensure that a critical message is never missed. Infinitely more reliable and secure than emails, text messages and phone calls, OnPage shrinks incident resolution time by automating the notification process, reducing human errors and streamlining operations. As part of IT service management, the solution tracks alert delivery, ticket status and responses, delivering complete audit trail reporting during and after each incident. OnPage is fully integrated with ConnectWise Manage, Datto’s Autotask and ServiceNow, allowing teams to initiate and manage alerts and escalation policies from these ticketing and PSA platforms.

MSPs rely on OnPage to streamline operations, keep their teams motivated, reduce costs and add new revenue streams to grow their businesses.

The number of patients affected annually varies widely from year to year, according to the HIP/SA analysis. In 2017, the industry suffered 359 breaches affecting 5.1 million patients compared to 327 breaches affecting 16.6 million patients in 2016, the analysis found.

However, the largest number of patients suffered from breaches reported in 2015 when 192 million patients were affected. That year included the Anthem, Inc. breach which affected 78.8 million patients, the Premera Blue Cross breach affecting 11 million patients and the Excellus Health Plan, Inc. breach affecting 10 million patients. The three breaches all had their network servers hacked.

Business Associates (BA) also suffered the largest number of breaches in 2018 with 84 affecting 5.8 million patients. The largest number of patients were affected by BA breaches in 2014 when 8.9 million patients were affected by hacks. Almost half of the patients were affected by the hacking of the Community Health Systems Professional Services Corp. network, which affected 4.5 million patients.

Since 2015, hacking incidents have steadily grown in number. In 2015, hacking accounted for 56 breaches and rose to 157 in 2018. The number patients affected by hacking varied widely. For example, in 2018, 9.1 million patients were affected by hacking incidents while 3.5 million were affected in 2017.

"The OCR data showed the need for better cybersecurity and how healthcare is doing a better job of physically protecting PHI,” observed Dennis Melamed, editor of HIP/SA. “For example, loss and theft of patient data accounted for 104 breaches in 2015 compared to 55 in 2018.”

Under the HITECH Act, healthcare entities must report breaches affecting 500 or more patients to the HHS Office for Civil Rights where summaries of the incidents are published for public inspection. Approximately 38 breaches affected the minimum 500 patients of the 2,550 major breaches reported since the program began in September 2009. Approximately 650 breaches affected fewer than 1,000 patients.

A fuller analysis is available in the January issue of HIP/SA.
