A Pathway to Eliminating Unemployment and Growing Manufacturing

Invest in Virtual QE

Virtual QE creates Video Work Instructions for manufacturing companies with a focus on companies following ISO Standards such as Automotive, Aerospace, Medical Device, Pharmaceutical and Oil and Gas. If we have how-to videos for building furniture, or for taking dents out of cars, we asked ourselves, why can’t we go further? Shouldn’t we have how-to videos for building complex medical devices, cars and airplanes? Here at Virtual QE, we make that happen. We have already developed the service and have implemented it at several manufacturers in several cities in the US and in Toronto. 


According to a study performed by the Manufacturing Institute in 2015, many of these high-level manufacturing companies are unable to fill their open job positions to the tune of 2 million jobs over the next 10 years due to a lack of highly specialized manufacturing talent in the workforce. We believe we are changing that. Through our video work instructions, companies will be able to fill those positions by empowering everyday people with no specialized training to be able to perform these highly specialized tasks in a job setting. 


Through our processes and templates acquired from best practices across multiple industries, it's our opinion that we will cut down the amount of time it takes to create work instructions. We believe we will save costs by ensuring smooth transitions for employees and will prevent tribal knowledge from getting lost in the process. We believe these work instruction videos train employees up to ten-times faster and more effectively than traditional methods.


We are starting in manufacturing and moving into healthcare and every other industry. 

The Market and Our Growth Potential

According to the National Association of Manufacturing, manufacturing accounts totaled $2.25 Trillion in spend in 2016. 


According to the Manufacturing Institute, there are over 295,643 manufacturing companies in the United States. Our sales average for a manufacturing companies is $128,600 per company.


We believe the need for more manufacturing labor will force all manufacturing companies to implement this video work instructions service. Because this service creates jobs and trains the workforce, our clients are able to apply for government funding to help pay for our service which only adds to the value proposition.

Invest in Virtual QE Today

We chose this route to give family, friends, acquaintances, and the "common man" the opportunity to invest in a way that only the ultra rich get to invest, which has been made possible by regulations passed back in 2015. 


We plan on using the funds raised from this StartEngine campaign to

  • Expand the team: We have interest from several companies and it is growing rapidly by the month
  • Purchase of Headquarters: Gain access to talent which will keep our costs low and the company more profitable. 
  • Support our Reg A+ campaign and anticipated IPO on OTC markets.

Our path to liquidity: Our aim is to list on the OTC Markets in one year. We have already begun preparing to file with the SEC for our Regulation A+ raise, which will take another 6 months to qualify. At that point we intend to keep our offering open for 3 months. 

Immediately following the close of our Reg A+ offering, we will begin the filing process for listing on OTC markets

How It's Implemented

Procedures and work instructions have moved from text to text & picture. With today's computing power, it is time to move to video to increase the comprehension and precision of the information provided.


We give senior technicians at a company wearable camera safety glasses. These record first-person video of the technician performing a complicated task or using a specific piece of machinery. The raw footage comes to us, and along with our expert consultants, we review and edit the video, using learned best practices.


In just two days, or even twenty-four hours, we can create video work instructions that could teach anyone without experience how to complete high-skill level work while building the actual product. 

We believe the video will show the fastest and safest way to perform any given task. We are backed by our team of consultants who boast technical expertise across multiple industries and who we believe have learned the best methods leveraged from their years of experience.

1. Senior Operator captures best practices.

2. VQE creates video work instructions.

3. Company's productivity and yield increases drastically.

Videos communicate 1.8 million words per minute.

Who We Help

Our clients are primarily manufacturing companies governed by ISO or AS with a focus in highly regulated industries, such as aerospace, medical devices, pharmacology, automotive, food and more. These can range from startups to Fortune 500 manufacturing companies. 


How We Help

As parts and customer requirements become more complex, companies are not able to reproduce and repeat their production processes to maintain high yields, which in turn leads to lost revenue. We believe that we will be saving these companies time and money by streamlining the training process, so everyone learns the best methods while building the actual product with a higher level of quality.


We are also helping to spur the economic development of cities and countries who would like to host a company’s manufacturing sector, yet haven't had the skilled labor force they need up until this point. Through our videos, we can create the workforce necessary to incentivize companies to build factories and manufacturing centers in particular locations.


On a practical level, we cut down the amount of time it takes to create work instructions – time that can now go into actually doing the work. There will now be an increased level of standardization throughout a company, leading to fewer errors and less tribal knowledge lost.

Taking Quality to the Next Level

Many amazing and life-changing products never make it to market or are taken off the market due to the inability of manufacturing quality to keep up with the technological advancements in product design. 


We will also use the same methods used to create video work instructions for our video investigations process.


By recording all the manufacturing builds, we believe we will be able to pinpoint the exact time and place of an error, preventing mass recalls and revenue lost. In the same vein, we believe we will be able to identify areas in the manufacturing process that have been rendered extraneous, are dangerous, or are underdeveloped, providing ways to fix them before they lead to mistakes.


If a car gets to the end of its production line and a problem is found with the engine, the thousands of cars preceding it in the production line and potentially cars delivered will have to be checked.

With our methods, we can see exactly when the mistake was made and how many cars it affected and treat the problem individually. This obviates the need to scrap a day, a week, or even a month’s work.

We Do More For You

Virtual QE offers a variety of services outside of our video work instruction:

Consulting

Whether its resolving issues, implementing development activities, or improving supplier-customer relationships, we will work with a company to analyze their situation in a synergistic atmosphere to develop specific solutions tailored to the company's product and industry.

Consulting Network

Our consulting network provides recruiters with the ability to quickly search and find available Quality Engineering Consultants based on the most commonly searched criteria. 

Mergers and Acquisitions Assessment

Virtual QE's M&A Quality Assessments not only discover the quality issues in the due diligence period but also provide a quality strategy for ensuring an efficient and effective integration post acquisition.

Training

We provide onsite training in all areas of quality engineering to ensure that employees are able to perform their quality tasks and product issues are prevented.


These complimentary services can lead to a potential for a lot of after work and the ability to upsell companies.


The Importance of Quality

Here at Virtual QE, we believe that quality should extend beyond business and manufacturing. We want to utilize our resources to improve the quality of life for everyone around us. That is why we are going to donate 10% of our revenue to organizations that support children and families.


We want to increase the quality of life in society as a whole.

 

Will be supporting organizations like North Point Youth Inc. that fight to serve at-risk families and children in primarily overlooked communities.


Because at Virtual QE, we believe that everyone deserves quality

“Our mission at Virtual QE is to increase the quality of life in our society by raising the quality of products and services produced and by strengthening the foundation of any society: the family unit.”

MEP Conference Success: Virtual QE adds 447 Sales Reps across 31 states without spending one cent!

26 days ago

How did we accomplish this?

The answer is “Need Alignment”

Every Manufacturing Extension Partner (MEP) from each state verified that the #1 issue their clients (Manufacturers) face is a shortage of skilled labor. The MEPs receive funding according to the impact they have on manufacturers in terms of jobs created, client savings, client revenue growth, and client success surveys. When we presented our services, cost structure, and how we both can win from partnering together, the conversation immediately went to the onboarding process and how we start working together as soon as possible.

The structure of the agreement for most states will have the MEP holding the contract with the client and the MEP contracting us. The MEP will mark up our price to an agreed upon amount as their commission for leveraging their existing relationships. This incentives the MEP to sell as many video work instructions as possible therefore committing their entire sales team as stated by several of the MEP Directors themselves.

What does this mean for the bottom line?

Assumptions

The Florida Makes, the Florida MEP, has relationships or access to 18,000 Florida Manufacturers. There are 295,000 Manufacturers in the US. From our discussions with the 31 MEPs, they at a minimum represent 150,000 manufacturers. To be conservative, let’s assume that they are all small manufacturers ($50,000 average sale) and a 25% conversion rate (We anticipate a conversion rate of 40% as this the manufacturers #1 issue and our first mover advantage)

Conservative Projection on Bottom Line Increase

$50,000 x 37,500 manufacturers = $375,000,000

Potential Projection Bottom Line Increase

$128,000 (amount for average company) x 150,000 manufacturers = $19,200,000,000

We have the processes and plan in place to scale operations to meet the demand. Your investment with us will make this happen and fully utilize our first mover advantage!



Remaining States

For the remaining states, we were not able to engage during the conference due to time and accessibility constraints or they were not in attendance at the conference. However, we were able to meet several other MEP contractors who have relationships with those MEPs who we were not able to meet directly or were not in attendance.
