CheckMate job tracking software helps businesses align operations with their business goals in order to achieve better ROI. The system tracks the location of jobs on the shop floor, eliminating bottlenecks and increasing customer service, the company says.

The software is designed to make tracking work orders easy. The user uses a barcode preprinted on the work order or they attach a barcode label to the document or file. Then they scan the barcode each time the work order moves to a new location (no need to scan “out” of the last location). The system will report where the job is and how long it’s been there. When a customer calls, personnel will be able to give them an update from up-to-the-minute information. Managers will be able to identify if a job has been at a department or task too long, avoiding bottlenecks and facilitating smooth production.
