Smart Shop-Floor App for Manufacturing

October 1, 2016

Exact has introduced Smart Shop Floor, a cloud-based application for factory operators and workers to retrieve job data, track time and materials, and record job progress within the company’s Exact for Manufacturing cloud-based business software.

With the addition of the Smart Shop Floor app, factory operators and workers can input and access real-time job data, eliminating the need to distribute shop orders via paper and giving everyone a single view into the most up-to-date information. With the touch of a button, operators can clock their time on a shop order, providing accurate, real-time progress data back to the office, according to company officials. Additionally, Smart Shop Floor is designed for portable use on a tablet or smart phone, eliminating the need to use desktop or laptop computers in the factory.

“Manufacturers often struggle with bridging the gap between the shop floor and the back office, leading to miscommunication, lost orders and inaccurate job costs," says Logan Paquin, director of product management for Exact U.S. Cloud Solutions. “Combining Smart Shop Floor with Exact for Manufacturing provides shop-floor workers and operators with a holistic view into all business operations, which increases accuracy, saves times and ultimately reduces IT spend across the board.”
