Today we finalized the incorporation of our Belgian subsidiary, Qcify Europe. This subsidiary will allow us to further expand our R&D and production teams and bring even more advanced and revolutionizing technologies to our customers.
We're happy to announce that as of today we have moved to our new office. But no worries we're still in San Mateo.
Our new address is 1900 S Norfolk, Ste 350, San Mateo, CA 94403.
You'll be welcomed by the friendly staff at the reception and if weather permits we can even do our meetings outdoors in the beautiful courtyard.
Earlier this week we reached yet another milestone. And guess what?
This time it's not winning an Award or something similar. Not even close, this time the milestone is a number and more specifically 10,000,000. It represents the amount of almonds that have been analyzed by our systems since the installation of the first unit about 3.5 months ago.
And with more installations coming up in the next few months we're sure that millions more objects will be sampled by the end of the year.
Qcify was presented with the Innovation Award during this year's INC World Nut Congress in Chennai, India. The award recognizes new ideas and innovative approaches within the industry. The company received the award for its product, Quality Inspection System (QiS), released in Q4 of 2016. Qcify is the first company to develop and commercially launch a dedicated quality control system to the nut and dried fruit industry.
Qcify joins previous laureates such as Blue Diamond (2016) and Tomra (2015).

Qcify Inc.’s automated quality control disrupts the global food industry.
March 11th, 2017
San Mateo, CA – Food businesses around the globe are looking in the direction of the California-based start-up QcifyTM as the food-tech company has just launched the most innovative QC system in the world.
The Quality Inspection System, QiSTM, is the first dedicated system that accurately monitors, analyzes and documents the quality of food processing lines. This system finally enables full automation of the entire QC department, from sampling all the way to sample inventory management.
The QiSTM works in a very intuitive way. The sample is fed into the hopper, the QC process starts at the push of a single button, and in just 6-8 minutes (500g sample) an objective digital report is ready. In comparison, the traditional manual QC process typically takes about 15-20 minutes, and results heavily vary between staff members.
Independent experts and early adaptors praise the extremely high and unprecedented accuracy of the system, together with the low capital expenditure and rapid payback period of less than one year. Both as a stand-alone or in-line system, the compactly sized device requires minimal maintenance and was designed for long-lasting service.
The company’s patented technology is also finding its way into other aspects of the food processing flow, as it manages: processing line optimization and automation as well as inventory management, among other applications.
The system is touring the world and can be seen in action during the Almond Alliance Convention (Santa Barbara, CA – May 2-5), the INC Congress (Chennai, India May 19-21) and the ABC Conference (Sacramento, CA – December 5-7). Potential customers can also schedule an on-site demo to experience the supreme capabilities of this world-changing QC system.
QcifyTM was founded in 2015 by Raf Peeters, a long-time food processing technology expert. The company has solidly grown since its incorporation thanks to a first-class team of highly experienced professionals in the field of food processing, technology and data. QcifyTM is a proud member of INC and the Almond Alliance of California.

Qcify is happy to announce its membership to the Almond Alliance of California. We look forward to be a part of the Alliance and to great collaborations with the other members. A first step towards these collaborations will be the Annual Convention held between May 1-5, 2017 in Santa Barbara. We look forward to meet you all at our booth.
When using Qcify's patented (patent pending) technology you'll gather much more quality control data than ever before. But it's not just about gathering data, we're all about providing experiences and solutions that will allow for data-driven decision-making.
Therefore we understood early on that our systems would have to become part of the larger picture. Communication between our system and ERP systems ( such as SAP, Nutware, Almads) or SCADA systems (such as Ignition) are now no longer something of the future.
We look forward to a connected future together with our customers and business partners.
As most of you know, at Qcify we like to focus on the future. Not only do we develop Quality Control solutions but we also aim to give back and help the next generation. One of the ways we motivate the youth is by sponsoring their sports endeavors.
Last Saturday our CTO, Bert Peelaers, attended the official presentation of their new outfit. And whether or not it was the new outfit, the team won the game.
