Dynamic Systems’ CheckMate manufacturers’ suite integrates applications such as WIP Lite, job costing with time and attendance, stockroom inventory control, toolroom tool tracking and capital asset tracking. Applications can share the inventory database and employee identification codes, enabling job costing and tracking important assets without time-consuming data entry, the company says.
The software can track and cost jobs, maintain an accurate account of inventory, gather payroll information and keep track of important tools in an integrated system. Bar codes are printed on work orders, badges and labels for tools and inventory. Bar code scanners (either corded to a PC or portable) scan the bar codes during transactions to record the movement or use of the job or item.
Other features include the ability to set minimum and maximum levels for the same inventory item in multiple locations and to attach five different items per record (such as a build of materials, manual, photo and more). Signature capture on a portable terminal provides proof of delivery of tools or inventory items.
According to the company, the software can reduce late jobs, improve the ability to identify bottlenecks and increase productivity. Other benefits include reduced frustration, accurate job costing, easy collection of employee hours for payroll and increased customer service.
