New Six Sigma product from Minitab

Minitab Inc are working to cement their position in the Six Sigma market with the release of Quality Companion 2.

While you wouldn't know it from the way that it is presented (apart from the "2" in the title) this is an upgrade to an existing product released around 2003 which provides tools to improve quality processes - mapping processes, reporting and communicating processes etc.

I couldn't tell you what is new in this version, as their presentation of it doesn't tell you, and it's not a product that I have used, but they must think it is a major upgrade as you can find Quality Companion 1 listed for sale on the web at $149 but with version 2 the price has jumped to $450. No upgrade options are mentioned on their site.
