Increase profits INSTANTLY with Realtrac’s accurate, easy-to-use estimating program.

Increasing Profits With the Realtrac ERP System

Businesses only succeed if they make a profit. The REALTRAC ERP System helps companies boost profits by reducing costs, increasing productivity and improving operational efficiencies. Efficiency comes from doing more of what’s most profitable in your business and doing less of what’s least profitable. Realtrac provides immediate, enlightening analysis to give your company greater clarity and direction.
Realtrac ERP System increases profits and reduces losses“We implemented Realtrac almost two years ago, replacing a different program that was too complicated and that required constant training (and training expenses). We immediately found the difference between the two systems to be night and day. Realtrac met their commitment to have us up and running in just a few days, and within a few more I found opportunities to improve our costs and throughput. In fact, I discovered I was actually losing money on a couple jobs I had thought were moneymakers. Realtrac’s easy and intuitive system helped me fix that. The Realtrac system, and the improvements we have made in our shop, has helped us grow and manage that growth effectively.“ Rick Dodaj, DPM Manufacturing, Wixom, Michigan

REALTRAC is a fast, real-time system that assists manufacturing companies in achieving their true employee, machine costing and overhead rates. This, in turn, leads to quicker estimating and the ability to quote more effectively and efficiently. We provide FREE and immediate labor, work center and overhead costing sheets upon implementation that analyze your labor, workstation and overhead costs and prices. We recommend implementing this practice periodically to confirm that your costs and prices are being used properly – which will help ensure your business’s success!

Our company has multiple steps for job for costing, and Realtrac continues to work very well for us. We used to have a spreadsheet system that only worked sometimes, and we were always too busy taking care of customers to do a thorough cost analysis. Realtrac estimating with router forced me to set up precise costing in a simple way. I am not a computer geek, but with the help of Realtrac trainer Don Colley, I was up and running in just a few hours. Once I set up estimating, I found that many of our jobs were under market price. I increased prices without losing a single customer. In just 6 months, the Realtrac software had paid for itself. It is the best ERP software for our 15-employee company.” Jim Stutzman, Stutzman Plating Inc., Los Angeles, California

Realtrac is a fast and powerful system built upon excellent business practices. The easy-to-use platform allows you to run your software instead of allowing it to run you. The Realtrac team has created a completely integrated, state-of-the-art manufacturing ERP system that makes for a quick and easy transition while reducing the stress of daily business. Realtrac will assist your entire operation and make you more efficient by reducing your costs while optimizing your business’s performance.

EASTEC 2015 Recap - Realtrac ERP Software

Realtrac ERP Software at EASTEC 2015


Last week, Realtrac wrapped up a very successful EASTEC 2015 show. The event drew attendees from all over the country, and our sales team met with many visitors to discuss our “Easy to Use, Quick to Implement” shop management system.

Realtrac ERP Software at EASTEC 2015
Jeremy Klosowski, Director of Sales for Realtrac: “We are always very excited to exhibit at manufacturing trade shows. At EASTEC 2015 we heard about common problems that machine and job shops are currently having, including: systems they can’t get to work, labor tracking that is too time consuming, and losing customers due to constant late deliveries as a result of having no software implemented whatsoever… We are in the business of offering a management software solution to companies who are frustrated with a lack of profitability, and who are concerned by their overall shop inefficiencies. After EASTEC 2015, we expect many manufacturing companies in the Northeast to begin using Realtrac to regain control of their shop floor and increase profitability.”

SME statistics show that EASTEC 2015 attracted 30% more visitors than the 2013 show, proving that the manufacturing industry continues to rebound. Shop owners’ plans and strategies must address new equipment, technologies and opportunities as they emerge, or risk being left behind. It is also evermore apparent that businesses in the manufacturing industry must have a job shop tracking system – or they risk losing business. Realtrac’s Shop Management System is the perfect solution, with a fast and easy-to-use software platform that provides your customers real-time visibility and quality product – on time, every time.

Thanks to those who visited the Realtrac booth at EASTEC 2015, and we look forward to helping you boost your profits!

ATTN: Manufacturing Industry – Real-Time Job Tracking Critical for HIGHER Profits!

Realtrac's Real-Time ERP System

As we all know, the practice of tracking time on jobs is critical to ensuring consistent profits. We speak with many shop owners who are frustrated with their out-of-control shop floors. These shops are generally (a) not tracking their time at all, or (b) using older, time-consuming processes like Microsoft Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, or Access databases.

Of course, the more time you spend recording time, the less time you have to physically run your shop floor. Also, this kind of manual entry (whether entered by a manager or employee) is often riddled with mistaken data. “Bad Data In, Bad Data Out,” in other words.

Realtrac Real-time ERP System and ERP SoftwareThe Realtrac Shop Management system uses the “Shop Floor Client:” a real-time window into the shop floor that allows managers to see which employees are using which machines on each job. View each job’s drawing number, operation number, run status, estimated and actual hours, or your employees and their log-on times. Get detailed information about jobs, work center loads and previous work sessions - actual times are color-coded for easy description. Anyone in the shop will immediately know if a job is on time, falling behind – or if it’s already late!

Realtrac ERP real-time ERP System
Realtrac customers receive immediate access to full shop floor control with mobile-optimized touch screen technology for PC’s, iPads and iPhones. No hand scanners to aim, no paper routers to carry around, and no manual input needed to access employees, jobs and operations. That’s right - Realtrac users can simply press the touch screen to record time, without entering the job, operation or employee numbers

Other systems on the market claim to use similar technology; however, they require you to enter the employee, job and operation. Plus, they aren’t mobile-optimized! We estimate our shop client is up to 10x faster collecting shop floor labor time than some of our competitors!
