Realtrac ERP’s RightBoard is a digital whiteboard designed for simplicity and ease of use. It automatically shows upcoming workstation operations in small and medium machine shops to avoid missing data when things get hectic or busy. As employees log in to these operations, the board updates employee and workstation status in real time. As they finish their operations, the next operations are automatically queued on the RightBoard. Employees are guided automatically to the next job and operation.

When a hot job arrives, a production manager can expedite the job. If the team needs more control, individual operations can be scheduled manually.
