PMTS 2011 interview

At PMTS, we will be showing our Visual EstiTrack’s ERP employee training capabilities that allow companies to track how many times an employee has been trained or when the next time that employee will need to be trained.

At PMTS, we will be showing our Visual EstiTrack’s ERP employee training capabilities that allow companies to track how many times an employee has been trained or when the next time that employee will need to be trained. Visitors to our booth can see how the software allows planning and preparation for training without the last minute scrambling that occurs when recurring training becomes due. Users have the ability to run a report to show upcoming training for the next period of time they would like to define and see what's coming up while there is still time to prepare and schedule. Tracking and reporting can be done by employee, ISO/TS/QMS standards, department, workcenter and finished goods inventory. The software allows viewing of attached documents, such as certifications, exams, and degrees for the trained employee. 

 
Document management will be a big part of our booth demonstrations. Quality will also be a highlight—it's not just in one area. Quality is connected to receiving, shipping and production on the floor.
 
PMTS is an important event, and Columbus is a great location for us. It's convenient and we have quite a few customers in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, and Michigan—within reasonable driving distance. We will see a lot of current and prospective customers. And word-of-mouth marketing at this show is great because so many people share what they've learned at the show with each other.
 
This year's PMTS includes a technical theater that provides additional opportunities for more detailed education for learning about companies. Then people can go back to these companies’ booths after the presentations for further information about products or services of interest. This will serve as a great tool for expanded knowledge sharing.
