If it's worth having a serial number,
it's worth tracking with QFS

Software for Manufacturing.

QFS Usage is Being Offered by API for Free

API is a technology company with QFS, a fully developed product that has been purchased by a number of companies. We have never developed any expertise in sales and marketing and don't care to do it now. We built a superior product and even though it does not generate much revenue we want to see it get used. Since this is a personal question for us we have had some flexibility on how we approach the issue. We have decided that as a service to the manufacturing community that we'd give away what we used to sell. The fundamentals of API's plan to give away QFS are this.

We at API enjoy manufacturing software applications and are proud of the product we have built. We hope the manufacturing community appreciates QFS and takes us up on our offer.
