In 1999 ZARPAC engineers in Oakville, ON developed software designed to help monitor and analyze packaging line performance. It was originally intended for internal ZARPAC use, but as customers became more familiar with the software and what it could do, the ZARPAC Performance Index, or ZPI for short, became a standalone software product.
The ZARPAC Performance Index, aka ZPI, quickly attracted new users solely via customer referrals and industry word of mouth, and over the last twenty years it has grown to become the leading software-based system dedicated to improving the operation, productivity and Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) of packaging lines and the equipment in them.
Rebranded as ZPI Monitor & Report in 2020, this constantly evolving software system is currently used in a wide range of industries including:
- Not-from-concentrate juices
- Carbonated beverages
- Shelf-stable juices & juice drinks
- Distilled Spirits
- Ground coffee
- Canned soups
- Cookies & crackers
- Confections & chocolates
- Automotive lubricants
In 2020, with the introduction of additional software applications and solutions, the organization that developed and supported ZPI software took the name ZPI Digital Intelligence.
This growing and strategically important business within ProMach now offers a suite of three software-based productivity solutions:
- Monitor & Report (Formerly known as ZPI)
- Serialize & Track (New!)
- Maintain & Predict (Launching in late 2020)
