IP Experts Partners to Deliver Comprehensive Real-Time Manufacturing Solution

Share Article

Following on the success of its IP Batch shop floor control and payroll solution, Incentive Payroll Experts has integrated wireless data collection and production management capabilities powered by Shopfloor to offer the state of the art IP RealTime solution.

Incentive Payroll Experts (IPE) (http://www.incentivepayroll.com), the fast-growing developer and provider of factory management and payroll solutions, has partnered with GA-based Shopfloor Support LLC to bring a comprehensive, real-time Shop Floor Control (SFC) and Incentive Payroll (IP) solution to apparel, sewn products and other discrete manufacturers. The resulting new IP RealTime™ system combines wireless data collection and real-time tracking capabilities powered by Shopfloor with IPE’s core production, payroll processing, and management reporting capabilities to empower manufacturers with the transparency and control they need; when they need it.    

According to IPE Managing Partner Brad Mikes, “Following on the success of our original batch solution, it was only natural for us to add a real-time option for manufacturers that need up to the minute order tracking and operations visibility. Partnering with Shopfloor allowed us to not only to do this very quickly, but to offer a truly state of the industry solution in the process. By using wireless networking and off-the-shelf mobile devices to collect and report production information, we are making shop floor control simpler and more affordable for virtually any company.”

With the IP Batch™ solution, manufacturers can manage all production information, print barcoded production tickets, capture time and attendance, track work in process, identify off-standard costs, control quality, process gross payroll, and periodically report on these activities. The IP RealTime solution provides management information and worker feedback immediately, as production activities occur. This real-time visibility greatly enhances a manufacturer’s ability to maintain proper production line balance, deal with potential bottlenecks before they escalate, identify and resolve quality issues, and provide incentive-based workers with pacing and performance feedback.    

“We are pleased to partner with Incentive Payroll Experts,” noted Shopfloor Support Partner Justin Hershoran. “Because they leverage the latest technologies and data sharing protocols, the integration of the two systems results in far greater capabilities and end-customer benefits that go beyond what is capable with legacy technologies. We look forward to a long and rewarding alliance with IPE.”
