Glitch Happens™

AI-driven insights to reduce risk and improve in-market product quality.

As products become more interconnected and technologies more complex, it will be increasingly critical that companies know how to pinpoint product issues long before they become costly, serious, widespread recalls.

Our AI-driven, patent pending solution finds patterns associated with the issues your customers are experiencing and we wrap a number of data points around each issue to find richer insights than any one manufacturer or insurance company can find on its own.

More complexity

Everything we use seems to have more complexity, more interconnected parts and systems.  Unfortunately, more complexity means more chances for failure.  Like links in a chain, one weak link and the chain is easily broken.

Safety Critical Software

 

Product recalls are increasing year over year.  That presents a problem both to companies issuing recalls and to customers who, at best, lose faith in the product and, at worst, are injured.

Many of the recalled products have software flaws, and these can be mysterious and difficult to find and fix.  We offer companies a better way to monitor whether their products are “behaving well” or not.

Software Flaws in Medical Devices

Not long ago, only 1 out of 20 medical device recalls were due to faulty software.  Today, that number is 1 in 4 — yes, 25% of all medical device recalls are due to faulty software!

In 2017, nearly 500,000 pacemakers were recalled in the U.S. because of flawed software.  It’s true that good software has done a lot of good in the medical field, but sloppy software can hurt and even kill people.
