Cloud-Based Cost of Ownership Software Now Available
Final step in converting operational modeling suite to Software as a Service (SaaS)
April 8, 2019 (Pleasanton, CA) – Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc. (WWK) (www.wwk.com), the global leader in cost and productivity management software and consulting services, announced today that it has transitioned its TWO COOL® cost of ownership (COO) and overall equipment efficiency (OEE) software from a client-side application to software as a service (#SaaS) on Microsoft’s Azure Cloud. This represents the final step in a complete conversion of WWK’s applications to the Cloud. TWO COOL® is the most widely used #COO and #OEE modeling software for industrial applications, including integrated circuits and photovoltaic cell and module manufacturing.
TWO COOL® v4.0 is a blank sheet development capitalizing on over 25-years of enhancements and applications history from over 3,000 users on 5 continents. TC4 is built on a modern visual development platform and powerful relational database backend and includes numerous feature enhancements. Given the significance of this evolution, WWK is offering new and existing clients that move to the Cloud 50% off their first-year subscription.
“After successful introductions of Factory Commander® and Factory Explorer® as Cloud-based applications, we are pleased to take the final step in moving our entire operational modeling and simulation suite to software as a service with the transition of TWO COOL®,” states David W. Jimenez, WWK's President & CEO. “By moving TWO COOL® to the Cloud, we are able to offer more attractive pricing while providing cross-platform functionality. This opens the door to customers using both Windows and non-Windows-based hardware, which can access our applications using either remote desktop services (RDS) or an HTML5 compatible browser. It also allows our customers to specify higher computing power than exists on their local hardware; thus, reducing their information technology (#IT) total cost of ownership (#TCO).”
With more than 4,000 users worldwide, Wright Williams & Kelly, Inc. is the largest privately held operational cost management software and consulting company serving technology-dependent and technology-driven organizations. WWK maintains long-term relationships with prominent industry resources including SEMATECH, National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International (SEMI), and national labs and universities.
