Visual RTS empowers manufacturers to build strong, collaborative shop floor work environments by facilitating communication between operators and management teams with SMS and chat functionality. Embedded ticketing and labeling with full barcode capabilities mobilizes the workforce with the scanning of individual operations tasked to an operator or machine, including measurement of completion against KPI metrics and inspections.

innovation to support their business requirements and enhance our solutions specifically to support the future of manufacturing. The supply chain requires speed to market and that is accomplished with a combination of relationships and technology to streamline every step of the product from concept to consumer.”

Customers may purchase this module as a standalone or as an extension of their current Visual Next platform. Visual RTS connects directly to ERP systems in order to track and update production processes as it facilitates employee pay and enterprise wide production management. The module is easily integrated into any ERP solution and Excel with minimal hardware requirements.
