Job Tracking Software saves Label manufacturer 20 Hours / Week

Dynamic Systems, Inc., a Redmond, Washington software developer, specializing in data collection, has installed  The CheckMate Job Tracking Program  at a label converter / fabricator.

Release of Job Data
In business since 1981, DSI has been providing Barcode Software that tracks inventory, Jobs, Tools & Equipment, Documents, and ID Badge Systems. Barcode data collection has been proven to be the most accurate method of counting or tracking items.

Labels West sees dramatic savings & improved productivity
Labels West, a print manufacturer, installed the CheckMate JobData software, which is designed for small to mid-sized fabricators or manufacturers. The company manufactures custom self adhesive labels for food, wine and personal care packaging.  They were wasting hours every week searching for the work packets for jobs that were on their manufacturing floor.  Using the CheckMate Job Data software, they are now able to locate the jobs, saving their workers over 20 hours a week

Additional Benefits
Besides the time and money saving in locating the job packets, Labels West management can locate the job within the manufacturing process, allowing the production manager to forecast finish dates and identify any hold-ups or bottlenecks in the process.  Along with improving efficiencies, they can respond more quickly and accurately to their customers’ questions about lead-times and expected complete dates.

Cost Jobs
Job Data includes the ability to record actual labor, parts and scrap against the jobs.  The system installs on a Windows™ based PC, and is very easy to use.  “I would highly recommend this solution.  It installed easily, is stable and the technical support is excellent,” stated John Shanley, Owner of Labels West.
