Serial numbers are used to identify a unique product. It is used for equipment, electrical components and consumer goods, from a forklift-truck, laptops, smartphones to e.g. bicycles and for various reasons. A serial number can determine the origin of the product, can be used to check the (service) history of a product and whether or not a warranty is applicable.
In business scenarios where your customers order products that are directly shipped from your supplier to your customer (drop shipped) it can still remain essential to register the serial numbers or batch numbers for reasons of warranty or traceability.
Recording time spent on the shop floor is important for updating the planning and supports actual job costing. Exact Online Manufacturing currently provides for a time entry screen for the shop floor operator and a time approval screen for the manager. We have recently made enhancements to the time transactions process and have released a REST API to create time transactions. This REST API is available to partners who develop shop floor time entry applications.
To some manufacturers it is important that produced serial number items can be traced back to the shop order. This trace may provide insight in the origin of the used parts (as they could have serial or batch numbers too), the employees involved, the time of manufacture and documents or remarks attached to the originating shop order. A new enhancement makes it possible to enforce the registration of serial numbers when the shop order is received.
Tracking time is getting easier. And smarter. You’re now able to track time via your Android Wear smartwatch. With smart check-in & out capabilities! The app is context-aware and uses GPS coordinates to match your location with a client. You’ll receive an automatic notification reminding you to check-in. When you leave the client location a notification is triggered to check-out and save your time entry.

Helping them to get started quickly and better manage their projects, resource capacity and billable utilization.
