The Mariner Mission: Reducing Manufacturers’ Cost of Quality

We spend every day figuring out how to better help manufacturers reduce their total cost of quality. That happens for our Spyglass Visual Inspection (SVI) and Spyglass Assembly Verification (SAV) customers, who are saving millions of dollars annually on their quality costs, but it doesn’t stop there:

Continual Improvement:

Our product team continually roadmaps and develops our products to be constantly better, and our data scientists are always working on ways to make the machine learning, Deep Learning, and AI that power our solutions even better.

Customer Success:

Our Customer Success team is at the heart of it all, ensuring that all customer needs are met and that we’re truly doing everything we can to reduce our customers’ cost of quality.

Why do we do it?:

Because years of experience in the manufacturing sector have shone a very bright light on quality costs, as well as ways in which we can reduce those costs. But we didn’t start out this way.

Mariner Company Background

We pivoted to our Deep Learning solutions in 2019, so it’s fair to think of us as semi-startup, if you will. But our company has operated continuously since 1998, when we launched as a software vendor providing primarily data warehousing solutions.

Since our founding, we have worked hard to positively affect the bottom line for our customers, and so our pivot to Deep Learning, defect detection, and our SVI and SAV solutions is as much of a sharpened focus as it is a pivot. We are an Intel IoT Partner, Microsoft Gold Partner, and Microsoft’s 2020 Global Partner of the Year in IoT.
