Realtrac Software


 

Realtrac is an on-premise job management solution designed for job shop manufacturers and modular machine shops. It helps small and midsize manufacturers to schedule workflows, manage shop operations, track inventories, manage purchases and report business operations.

Realtrac job scheduler feature enables shop managers to schedule and organize daily workflows for floor workers and machines. The job order planner allows users to prioritize job orders and plan their execution. Realtrac's job estimating and quoting tool help manufacturers to analyze job requirements and create quotes for the job estimates.

With Realtrac' job order management feature, businesses can duplicate previous jobs, convert estimates into new job orders, modify or renew existing job orders and more. The solution gives visibility into ongoing floor activities and provides job specific information like running status, actual hours and the assigned employee.

Realtrac offers various templates to monitor and report business operations. The solution can also integrate with QuickBooks and Sage 50 (Peachtree) accounting programs.

Likes Best

It is very user-friendly, and the vendor is very knowledgeable on the product.

Likes Least

The inventory module is not linked into the standard purchase system, and the vendor didn't explain this step.

Recommendations

You have to understand that the modules are separate (inventory), and you should purchase multiple seats.

East Side Machine, Inc. purchased our first DOS version of Real Trac in 1993 when we were an eight person company with $750,000 in sales. We have been using Real Trac ever since for our shop floor tracking and integration with Quick Books. It has enabled us to grow with the upgrades to Real Trac to 42 employees and sales of $8,000,000+.

J & L Turning, Inc has had Realtrac software in our plant for approximately 20 years. We are a manufacturing company that manufactures custom designed tools, therefore every job is different. Keeping track and researching jobs was a nightmare. We found Realtrac extremely user friendly and adaptable to anything you want to monitor on your plant floor, plus it intergrates with our accounting software. If you run into a problem, help is always there when you need it. I certainly would recommend Realtrac to all businesses that want to monitor their production, inventory, costs, sales all of it. Easy to use, easy to learn - a winner.

Talsco has been using Realtrac for the past five years. The software is very easy to use and to learn. We currently utilize all modules available and are more than satisfied with the software. We manufacture 100's of different part numbers and without Realtrac it would be a nightmare tracking all of those jobs. Customer service is excellent! If we have a question regarding the software it is extremely easy and quick to get an answer. I would recommend Realtrac to all shops and businesses looking for a functional and easy to use MRP system.

Great for the price but feels a little "not ready for prime time" due to some inconsistencies between screens and modules. For example, some time is reported in minutes and seconds and on another screen or report the time is in tenths of a minute.

Pros

Price. Support. Catching data in real time so errors can be corrected while the operator still remembers the job.

Cons

Inflexibility for some items. Reporting for example.

We have used REALTRAC for several years managing production and inventory of repeat items in our business. The software performs well and for the price, the functionality, support, and responsiveness of the REALTRAC team is unbeatable. There is something of a learning curve to the software, but with disciplined use, we have found it to be very flexible and effective at capturing at and managing the data we need without imposing an unnecessary waste of effort or time.

Pros

Low cost, high functionality, responsive customer support!

Cons

It's a little bit of a hassle to setup and changes/updates to certain data have to be made in several locations. Inventory management could also be a little more intuitive and user friendly.

Advice to Others

Don't assume you can figure it out on your own. Take the time to setup individual training and webinars and ask lots questions. Proper training and guidance initially is worth the investment and is almost imperative to getting the most value in return for the effort spent entering data.

Thomas Newvine is the only reason this program is receiving a positive rating at all. The kinks are being worked out, thank you. Still could use improvements on ease of use. Items from Purchase orders still not always post to the job, The estimate transition to the job, could use some serious time on making this a better feature.

Pros

When items on a purchase order post correctly to a job, that is a great.

Cons

Inventory is a huge pain, hard to always see if it is accurate. Estimate feature needs a lot of work.

Advice to Others

Time management is not a positive remark for this software.

The hardest part of choosing a ERP software is adapting your already established nomenclature, planning and processing methods to the software. While no software can completely adapt to the way a company runs, this one comes close. Where you are forced to change to fit the system, the staff is every ready to help guide the stake holders through the process.

Pros

As of yet it has not been able to run properly. I have not had a lot of "Pros".

Cons

I have to change some of my company nomenclature to conform with the software. There are several steps to enter a PO, plan, allocate materials, and release. These are not intuitive and don't necessarily run in a easy flowing order. The spreadsheet columns will not expand to show all the information within.

We are a small growing shop. We had purchased a different ERP software 1 year ago. We struggled to implement it. The estimating part of it was really clunky. We ended up relying on spreadsheets yet. Realtrac has been extremely easy to learn. It just makes sense. We went with the leasing option and like that we always get the most up to date version.

Pros

You have to purchase additional modules for some functions
