Original Press Release:
Dynamic Systems Announces Software with Unique Features Ideal for Fabricators
Redmond, Washington/ Dynamic Systems, Inc., a Redmond, Washington software developer specializing in barcode data collection, has announced the release of a low cost software suite for small to mid-sized Fabricators. CheckMate brings the power of much more expensive ERP systems at a much lower price. Because the CheckMate Suite includes Job Costing, Inventory and Tool Tracking, the software is uniquely capable of providing the fabrication company with up to the minute information to maximize profits.
Complete Inventory System
CheckMate Stockroom is a complete inventory system. It tracks raw materials and finished goods using fast and accurate barcode technology. Receive inventory items by the "case" but issue by the "each". Use multiple units of measure for liquids (quart/ounce), sheets of materials (sq. inches/sq. yards), or track each item individually.
Create, Track and Cost Manufacturing Orders
CheckMate allows the user to create Sales Orders and automatically convert them to Manufacturing Orders. The Manufacturing Order includes a full Build of Materials - inventory items, tasks, and any special tools, dies or molds required to complete the job, as well as an estimated time to complete. This Manufacturing Order is then tracked through the production process using barcode technology. Upon completion of each task, labor hours and raw materials are recorded to the order. At the final completion of the build, the raw materials inventory is back-flushed out of Stockroom, and the cost of the job is completed.
Track Tools, Dies & Molds
With the integration of Toolroom-Tool Tracking, CheckMate is able to not only provide a list of tools/molds/dies required for a job, but to track the history and condition of these unique items. In the Toolroom Maintenance Module, any required calibration dates, die sharpenings or other maintenance requirements can be recorded and scheduled, thus eliminating lost time in manufacturing due to poor maintenance of the tool.
CheckMate Makes the Fabricator Money
By streamlining the manufacturing process, eliminating costly delays and providing up to the minute information regarding the job in process, CheckMate increases the efficiency of the process and provides information for management. Customer service improves and costs go down.
