“We implemented Realtrac almost two years ago,” said Rick Dodaj of DPM Manufacturing in Wixom, MI. “We replaced the E2 program, which was too complicated and required constant training (and training expenses). We immediately found the difference between the two systems to be like night and day. Realtrac met their commitment to have us running in just a few days and, within a few more days after that, I found opportunities to improve our costs and throughput,” Dodaj said. “In fact, I discovered I was actually losing money on a couple jobs that I thought were profitable for us. Realtrac helped me fix that. We have found Realtrac to be very easy to learn and intuitive. The Realtrac system and the improvements we have made in our shop to use it properly have helped us to grow and manage that growth effectively.”
Realtrac is a fast, real-time system that assists manufacturing companies by managing costs for labor, machinery, and overhead—which leads to faster estimating and more efficient quoting. After implementing the Realtrac software, Labor, Workcenter, and Overhead costing sheets can be generated free of charge to help analyze your costs and pricing. At Realtrac, we recommend analyzing that data periodically to ensure your business is on the right path to achieving goals.
Jim Stutzman of Stutzman Plating, Inc. in Los Angeles has had great success working with the Realtrac system. “We have several levels of costing in our business, so Realtrac has worked very well for us,” Stutzman said. “Our old spreadsheet system was not dependable and we had little time to perform cost analysis regularly. With the Realtrac software, I was able to set up precise costing and it was simple. I’m not a computer wiz, but with help from Realtrac trainer Don Colley, I was up and running in just a few hours. Once I had estimating set up, I discovered that many of our jobs were priced under the market price. In a short time, I increased prices without losing a single customer. In only six months, the Realtrac software had paid for itself. It’s been the best ERP software for our 15-employee company,” Stutzman said.
