Northern Precision - Realtrac for Twenty Years!

2017-02-23

We have been using Realtrac for approximately 20 years and it has continuously improved in its applications, efficiency and overall quality. Realtrac is a large factor in our success over the years and has helped make us the company we are today! Look forward to Realtrac for years to come.

Pros

The range of uses, reports and also the fact that it is tracked in "real" time and is current every five seconds.

Cons

The ability to design and generate custom reports.

A long look, great decision

2020-07-31

Amazed at how they train. No need to guess, no need to carve out days of forgetful training. Instead Training is as fast as one can absorb. Training is built upon the previous steps. Allowed our business to dictate training direction. Several times before a training session looked at my question as trivial. Considered it would be a waste of their time to show me one thing. In minutes of working together, letting me drive proved to quickly develop and understand the how and why's. The complete process expedites muscle memory, building the retention for a successful implementation.

Pros

The likes, In short, the ability to build and track multi level BOM's while having Shop management, inventory visibility and scheduling features.

Cons

Same as in all software, time to build the data. The choice was to not drop all past data in but to build from this point forward.

REALTRAC for small lot production in a small shop

2017-03-27

We have used REALTRAC for several years managing production and inventory of repeat items in our business.

Pros

Low cost, high functionality, responsive customer support!

Cons

It's a little bit of a hassle to setup and changes/updates to certain data have to be made in several locations. Inventory management could also be a little more intuitive and user friendly.

Don't assume you can figure it out on your own. Take the time to setup individual training and webinars and ask lots questions. Proper training and guidance initially is worth the investment and is almost imperative to getting the most value in return for the effort spent entering data.

How Realtrac changed the way we do business

2019-08-22

It has also changed how we manage our inventory by consolidating our warehouse.

Pros

I enjoy the ease of use and how efficient it is when it comes to tracking job statuses. The inventory management module is also great and it allows us to input inventory locations and statuses.

Cons

The only issue I have is the loading times when it comes to selecting different modules.

Great System, Everything We Needed Without the Crazy Complexity

2018-11-16

We are very pleased. They've got a great system and fantastic to work with.

Pros

Developers are very responsive to feature requests or the rare glitch.

Cons

Lacks a central analytics center for mining all the data we create (different sections of the ERP can create reports).

realtrac ERP

2019-08-02

Pros

We have used this software since 2005. The new owners and all the improvements of the software have made it one of the best investments we have made. It has enabled us to more easily attain our ISO certifications, and improve our performance for our customers.

Cons

One that can access more fields across the different modules.

Great software for job creation and tracking.

2020-11-10

It is also nice that a touchscreen shop tablet is an option for easier and faster job logging.

Pros

Realtrac is super simple to navigate and use on a daily basis. The data logging of operations is excellent.

Cons

The Quality tab could be updated to have a "responsible party" option and the NCR/CAR reporting could be updated to include better printable & shareable history data.

Realtrac Rocks

2020-07-23

Realtrac has made our daily tracking much easier and quicker!!

Pros

I am completely satisfied with how easy it was to get this new software set up with the help of the Realtrac Technical Support Team.

Cons

The only issues I have ran across would be the new fields and how to move around and find the correct reports I need to run.

Money well spent

2017-02-23

We were a smaller company that never had a job shop ERP system and RealTrac made this very easy to implement and allow us to grow.

Pros

Ease of use is the biggest item but there are many more. I hardly picked up the manual to learn this software!

Cons

I wish it was date sensitive for Inventory Reporting and other "what if" scenarios.

Realtrac Review

2018-08-06

For example, some time is reported in minutes and seconds and on another screen or report the time is in tenths of a minute.

Pros

Catching data in real time so errors can be corrected while the operator still remembers the job.

Cons

Inflexibility for some items. Reporting for example.

Not so impressed

2017-02-23

We bought a company that had this software. After many phone calls we finally got a handle on it. Not the best GUI not the best functionality. Rigid in my opinion. Setup not straight forward. Only good part is the shop screen.

Pros

Shop Screen. Only easy thing to use

Cons

Inventory system lacks a lot.

Need more flexibility in reports

2020-11-10

Overall ok, but can't get answers from technical support on custom reports.

Pros

Quality section is easy to use.

Cons

We need more flexibility in reports. I have unanswered questions from several months ago on a report showing total dollar value of estimates created in a month.

Realtrac use in a machine shop and fabrication environment.

2019-05-06

The main benefit that we have seen from this software is the ability to understand and verify our profit margins on each job, while also holding our shop employees to performance standards throughout each work day.

Pros

There are numerous search fields that allow you to search by description, part #, drawing #, customer name and customer PO #.

Cons

Making changes to templates could be made easier to do.

REALTRAC POSSIBLY THE FUTURE OF SHOP FLOOR SCHEDULING

2020-11-10

I HAVE HAD SMALL ISSUES WITH INSTALLS BUT EVENTUALLY THINGS GOT WORKED OUT AND THIS NEW VERSION IS EXACTLY WHAT THEY SAID IT WOULD BE. THE LATEST TECH INSTALL TEAM HAS BEEN VERY GREAT TO WORK [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] WITH AND THE SUPPORT SYSTEM THEY USE [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] IS EXTREMELY CAPABLE ON THEIR PRODUCT.

Pros

EASE OF SEARCH FUNCTIONS AND ABILITY TO CUSTOM CREATE REPORTS AND CUSTOM PAGES FOR INDIVIDUAL USER TO FIT SPECIFIC DESKTOP NEEDS

Cons

STILL SOME FEATURES THAT ARE MISSING BUT REALTRAC TAKES TIME TO LISTEN TO OUR IDEAS AND POTENTIALLY WILL INCLUDE THESE IDEAS IN FUTURE UPDATES.. WHICH IS GREAT FOR ME AND HOPEFULLY HELPS THEM SELL MORE PRODUCT.
