Feeling Lazy?

Some days you just can’t get motivated. Fortunately, your shop-floor software never sleeps.

Let this cute video inspire you to try us.  🙂


Work Order Tracking on the Factory Floor

Where is my work order? Where is my stuff?

The answer is, right on the factory floor, right on schedule!

The reason you know that is barcode time tracking with Standard Time. You scan jobs as the enter the shop floor, then again as they progress from stage to stage, and finally as they land on the shipping dock floor. So, you know exactly where your “stuff” is!

Watch this whimsical video for some inspiration to get started!


Manufacturers Embrace Automation

You can automate your shop! With barcodes and RFID!

Try scanning in Standard Time® and see what happens. You’ll instantly see where your work orders are, how long they took to complete, and who’s your best employee. Already know who your best employee is? Hey, you might be surprised!

Automated Imports and Exports

For nerds only. And only nerds who import and export data.

Everyone else… do not click.

This video will hopefully inspire you to try automated imports and exports to exchange data on a scheduled basis. This can be a huge time saver.

Scan Barcodes in any Mfg Shop

You can add barcode time tracking to just about any manufacturing shop. Watch this little video for inspiration.

Just put a low-cost tablet on the shop floor. Add a barcode scanner to it. And now you’re tracking employee time! It’s pretty simple, actually.

Fabrication Shops Use Barcodes

Fab shops use Standard Time and barcodes for job tracking. Here’s how:

And then read this:
Set up a $70 scanning tablet where employees can scan jobs. Tell them to start by scanning their name. Then scan a job number. A timer starts, and the employee is free to walk off and start the work. When they finish, they return to the scanning station, scan their name again, and then the word STOP. That’s it!

Now you’ve got timestamped records of job status. Wow, that was easy!

Give it a try at the Standard Time cloud site.


Barcode Scanning Inventory

Want to track inventory usage on the shop floor with barcodes? The video below will show you how. It’s not hard.

You’ll just need a barcode scanner connected to any tablet or computer. Print your own barcode labels, or scan SKU’s on existing inventory items. A single scan records usage.

You can’t get any simpler than that!

Standard Time Cloud on a Cellphone

Operators can use their cellphone’s on the shop floor to start timers for work orders, jobs, and projects. Just speak, and timers start automatically!

Yep, that’s right! Just speak to start work order timers!

Why is this valuable? Because everybody carries a mobile phone, and they are easy devices to record time, even on the job site.
