Henning Software will present additions to its Visual EstiTrack ERP shop management system, which include a touch scheduling board and an add-on phone and tablet app called iVET.

The touch scheduling board software system is designed to replace magnetic scheduling boards found in shops by enabling users to drag and drop scheduled shop order operations within and between work centers on a touchscreen. It is designed to be deployed on large touchscreen monitors on the shop floor and is fully integrated into the ERP so shopfloor personnel can easily prioritize operations, view and set statuses, and move operations from one work center to another.

The newest release of the company’s iVET app provides end users and shop personnel with access to the Visual EstiTrack database from phones and tablets. The employee portal provides shopfloor personnel with the ability to clock in and out of shop order operations, view inventory levels, transfer inventory, capture pictures to document setups and quality concerns, and view assignments and work center schedules.
