Juniper Systems has worked to develop a rigorous quality-assurance process to ensure each Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet that leaves our doors goes with the same quality standard we hold ourselves to. As a company that operates almost entirely under one roof, we have the benefit of working closely with all individuals involved in the process, from product development to shipping. This allows for quick clarity on order specifications and improvement input from our entire team. Our process set in place for quality assurance is constantly improving and being updated for any issue that comes our way. Though we’re pretty proud of our current quality assurance process, we recognize there is always room for improvement. Because of this, a combination of teams focusing on different aspects of quality assurance meet regularly to discuss improvements and work toward maintaining a thorough quality inspection process. Below is an outline of our current process.

Arsenic is a carcinogen, increasing cancer rates for those who ingest it. Found at high levels in the groundwater in a number of countries, a group of seven Utah State University engineering students left for the Puno region of Peru, just north of Lake Titicaca, to work toward eliminating the problem. After data collection training from members of the Juniper Systems team and extensive arsenic removal research prior to the trip, students worked to identify arsenic levels through sample mapping and removal exploration. In addition to focusing on unsafe levels, the students also followed up on the success of previous projects and future project ideas to discover other ways of improving the living conditions of these Peruvian communities. And they did it all with the Archer 2 as an epic companion—R2-D2 style.
Juniper Systems employees worked together with members of the Bear River Land Conservancy in an effort to aid in conservation of important habitat along the Bear River. Using the Geode Sub-meter GPS Receiver, the Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet, and the Allegro 2, a handful of our rugged handheld enthusiasts mapped updates and information on important plants, large debris, fence lines, and more while getting additional hands-on experience using Juniper’s data collection solutions.
We make organizing internal opportunities like this a priority because they allow Juniper Systems’ employees to put themselves in the shoes of the individuals using our products and evaluate improvements that could be made to improve user experience. By volunteering with the Bear River Land Conservancy, employees were able to use their experience and turn it into ideas for product improvements while contributing to a cause Juniper Systems has always been passionate about.
Like any healthy long-term relationship, business partnerships take time, patience, and understanding. At Juniper, we’ve been involved in many partnerships throughout the years, and learned a variety of lessons along the way. When maintained correctly, partnerships can act as one of the driving factors of success and revenue. The key is understanding how to keep the relationship healthy and flourishing, while implementing these understandings into day-to-day interactions. Below are 9 tips for achieving a successful business partnership and a couple of pointers on where to start. While reading through our suggestions, take a mental assessment of where your organization fits and which areas could use improvement—should that count as number one?
- Establish a clear and careful vetting process
Setting expectations should be one of the very first steps in establishing a partnership. Starting with varying ideologies will invite conflict and frustration into the relationship before it even begins. Set yourself up for success. At Juniper Systems, we strive to implement this into our day-to-day by referring to our list of 15 company maxims. This list of company ideals/morals help us align with like-minded companies that share similar values and goals. In addition to our maxims, we also have a partner application and clear vetting process that considers all factors, not solely financial benefit. We focus on selecting partners who will be dedicated to serving customers, represent our products well, and offering valuable problem-solving solutions. Consider the long-term benefit of being selective with the partnerships you form, and make partner selections accordingly.
“Some days, the little extra push of our competition makes the difference for me getting out to do my daily exercise. Our competition is making a difference for me. It has only been a few weeks. But I’ve lost weight. I’m stronger. And I’m thankful to participate and leverage our competition for the extra bit of motivation that I need some days.” -Kent Campbell, Product Assurance Engineer
For the past three months, Juniper Systems employees have worked to improve themselves physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially through a variety of activities and challenges presented by Juniper’s Human Resources team. Split into groups of 8-9, these seven teams fought hard to earn points and bring their team to the top. Points were scored on both the individual and team level with a number of points awarded for 30 minutes of daily exercise, including others in your exercise, tracking diet, planning/participating in company-wide activities, mental/emotional self-assessments, getting a physical, and much more. And though this program was voluntary, more than half of the company chose to participate. Talk about a tight bunch. Continue Reading…
