Whether you make sandwiches or spaceships, pharmaceuticals or process control equipment, build components for skyscrapers or repair smart phones, you are probably confronted with the same operations tracking problem, which is how to track the transformation of input materials into a finished products without expending a large amount of non-productive overhead labor in the process.
The typical reasons that you need to track your operations are:
Over 80% of small to mid-sized operations still do this tracking using paper forms and manual keyboard data entry into Excel spreadsheets or ERP systems. This typically takes the equivalent of one to three full-time equivalent people at a loaded labor cost of $50,000 per year each.
The BellHawk software enables these organizations to inexpensively transition from using paper forms to using mobile computers and barcode scanning to capture this data. This automated data capture saves the cost of manual data capture and data entry, prevents data entry and operational mistakes, and provides real-time status of customer orders and available inventory. It also accurately captures job cost and materials traceability data.
For small to mid-sized industrial organizations, BellHawk is available in the Cloud, on a subscription basis, typically at a cost of under $1,000 per month. Please see www.BellHawkOnline.com for details.
For larger organizations, with their own IT organizations, BellHawk is available on an affordable annual rental basis for installation in their own data center. This enables these organizations to integrate BellHawk into their own IT infrastructures.
