Our Partnering Philosophy

  • Our working style is to partner with our clients, in effect becoming a part of your engineering team.
  • Our goal is to provide a cost-effective, working solution to your machine vision problems.
  • Our management team will work closely with you during the proposal process, listening and understanding your specific requirements, and offering ideas consistent with industrial machine vision capabilities today.
  • After our proposal is accepted, our engineers work directly with your engineers to develop a robust solution. We stay in constant contact during the development process with weekly conference calls and (at times) daily phone and e-mail interchange.
  • Our management team is always available to work with you in case issues arise. When the software development is complete, MVC will help install and integrate the custom solution into your machine or process.
