Contractor Software is Multi-Functional
Dynamic Systems has announced the release of a low-cost, multi-function Software Suite for Contractors.
The ‘CheckMate Contractors’ Suite integrates Toolroom Tool Tracking, Stockroom Inventory Control, and Time & Attendance, says the Redmond, Wash., software developer.
The product allows the applications to share the inventory database and employee identification codes, making it possible to track tools and documents without time-consuming data entry.
Bar codes are printed on work orders or drawings, badges and labels for tools and inventory. Bar code scanners (either corded to a PC or portable) scan the bar codes during transactions to record the movement or use of the job, document, tool or other item. This information is transmitted to the job foreman, accounting or purchasing to provide the location of important tools, employee attendance information, parts reorder reports and much more.
In addition, a feature called Signature Capture on a portable terminal provides proof of delivery of tools or inventory items.
Dynamic Systems says the software can help reduce late jobs, identify bottlenecks, improve productivity, and provide more accurate job costing and payroll tracking.
“Our customers see a typical payback for the software within three to four months,” said company president Alison Falco.
