President, Dennis Suddon, said, “Realtrac shop management software is really an amazing system. It allows us to know, at any moment, exactly what's happening on every job in the shop - who's doing what, how much time we're spending on each job we do, when a given job will be completed, how we're doing on material supplies, everything. We use this shop management software to track costs, do estimates, and generate reports on our overall operation."

Alex Farkas, Owner, indicates, “Since implementing Realtrac shop management software, productivity and efficiency have increased substantially. For example, it used to take us 2 to 4 hours to prepare an estimate. Using Realtrac, the average time to prepare an estimate is about 30 minutes. Once a job is accepted, an estimate can be turned into a job with a router/process plan in less than a minute. As an alternative, a router for a previous job can be duplicated in seconds.
Also, communications with shop employees have improved. Without being told, a machine operator can quickly see what has to be done next. The operator is also able to determine similarities in machine setups and suggest alternative schedules in order to minimize downtime. As a result, employees are becoming more involved in the day-to-day operations, and they feel they are contributing to the success of the company. Realtrac’s employee time summary reports have also helped us identify critical areas for improvements in a straightforward manner.”
