Manufacturing Resources

Manufacturers!  Start the New Year using barcodes. Exactly how, you ask?

By scanning them to track time and materials.

Turns out, employees can scan work orders to start a timer. When they stop that timer, you have collected the hours worked and status for that job. All with just a few scans. No computer. No software. No sitting in front of a terminal with dirty hands. Just scan and go!

Track Employee Time

Shop floors can get messy but that is because work is being done. In the end, you still need to track work orders and employee time , even in a hostile environment. Consider barcodes, or even RFID for time tracking in such places.

RFID is completely solid-state, and immune to dust and chemicals. just swipe and go. Nothing bothers RFID… not dust, dirt, grease and grime, grinding dust, or oils. It’s really the best choice for hostile shop floors.

Here’s a little video to inspire and remind you to try Standard Time┬« with RFID or barcodes.

We hope you love Standard Time┬« barcoding software almost as much.┬á ­čÖé

Metal Workers Scan Barcodes

Metal workers do not sit down at workstations, and hunt and peck. I guarantee that!

Try this: give them a barcode scanner and Standard Time®.
