  • Real-Time Inventory

    Automated data collection updates inventory in real-time eliminating confusion regarding what’s on hand or how many are available.

  • Eliminate Data Entry Errors

    Barcode scanning eliminates after-the-fact data entry for material movement as well as labor transactions.

  • Versatile and Device Agnostic

    Manufacturing Data Collection is compatible with iPhone/IOS, Android, and other mobile, internet-compatible barcode scanners.

Important Features of Manufacturing Data Collection Software

Clock-In / Clock-Out

Scan employee badges and production tickets to clock-in to production operations. Scan again to clock out of the operation reporting setup or production time and quantities scrapped or produced. Improve shop floor data collection and job costing with multi-job clock-in and clock-out activities for time and cost allocation to multiple jobs.

Supervisor Review

Scanned transactions can optionally be reviewed by supervisors facilitating data correction prior to posting to the database.

Device Agnostic

Works with mobile iPhone/iOS, Android devices, and scanners supporting internet connections.

Default Settings

Set defaults for automated data capture transactions such as setting the default order type for automated scans; using the required quantity of materials as defined in the production ticket bill of materials for move transactions; mandatory location selection for material transactions; confirmation by line; use default warehouse; use default auto-generated lot or serial numbers; use default expiration date; and more.
