No need to reenter the transactions of the shop floor to obtain accurate cost accounting, inventory tracking, and efficiency calculations.
Centralize up to date bill of materials with routings automatically transferred to the work order, and print with unlimited instructions. Effective communications translate into fewer errors and immediate correction.
IMPROVE INVENTORY CONTROL
Materials are allocated to work orders, to reflect the proper stock status. Know the current status in each warehouse.
