Maximize Productivity with Optional Modules

Shop Floor Data Collection

Streamline data collection with touch sensitive monitors that provide fast and easy real-time production floor reporting by job, employee, and machine with just the press of a finger.

Direct Machine Interface (DMI)

Improve the productivity of your manufacturing process by connecting directly to all types of production equipment through a family of Machine Data Terminals (MDT) with ProductionACE.

Scheduling

Reduce labor costs, improve team communication and streamline production planning through an interactive Gantt chart that provides drag-and-drop functionality to prioritize jobs and a dynamic visual representation of jobs in progress.

Browser Schedule Viewer

Keep all employees abreast of the current schedule and machine capacity for planning shipments of existing jobs and delivery dates of new jobs through HTML snapshots of the schedule board viewable in a browser on wide screen monitors in the plant or on individual computers.

Sharp Shooter

Track raw materials, work in process, manufactured goods and purchased supplies in real-time utilizing the latest scanning technologies of wireless RFID tags and/or barcodes.

Work In Process (WIP)

Update job costing and reduce inventory levels simply by scanning special barcoded WIP tags to streamline the process for raw material roll stock as well as sheets and other materials. Touch sensitive screens and barcode scanners speed operators through the inventory transaction processes. Materials are tracked as they move through the routing process of each job.

Quality Control Checklists

The Quality Control module leverages the User Defined Fields functionality so that custom QC checklists can be created and accessed in the shop floor data collection module with tabs and fields of various types that can be entered by employees.

Advantzware Open Analytics (AOA)

Create custom reports or designate standard reports in your preferred format, schedule them to run at a certain time of day and be emailed automatically to a group of people that you designate. Use this module to create dynamic dashboards of information in graphical format.

CRM Integration

Advantzware is integrated with Zoho CRM, a web-based CRM tool from Google. Manage all of your remote sales employees with Zoho CRM as they are prospecting for new customers. Once a prospect becomes a customer, all of the customer and contact information flows into the customer file in Advantzware where many more CRM features are available for working with customers.

Request for Quote (RFQ)

Speed the estimation process with the RFQ module that empowers sales and customer service team members to enter specifications for manufactured items. Information entered is sent directly to the estimating system for the estimator to calculate the quote price then transferred back to the RFQ for reference.

Application Programming Interface (API/EDI)

The Advantzware REST API facilitates integration with other applications and third-party tools by adhering to RESTful principles. These API’s enable you to programmatically create, update or read data in the different modules.

Administrator Tools

Modernize business processes with Advantzware’s System Administration tools that support scalability and ease-of-deployment across the enterprise.
