Preactor et la gestion des temps de riteSOFT
mercredi 29 avril 2009

Waite Park, MN, April 29, 2009: 

riteSOFT, a division of RTE, announces the integration of its product, riteTIME Touchscreen Labor Data Collection, with Preactor®. The power and simplicity of riteTIME drew the attention of Greg Quinn of Quinn & Associates Inc., the North American Network Partner for Preactor planning and scheduling software.

“The underlying philosophy of value and function of riteTIME is a perfect complement to the principles behind Preactor, principles that have elevated Preactor to the market leader in scheduling software,” says Gregory Quinn, president of Quinn & Associates. “The combination of riteTIME and Preactor make a powerful combination for manufacturers looking to improve production performance and enhance their competitive position.”

Bruce Hagberg, President of RTE added, “Combining the strengths of riteTIME and Preactor provides manufacturers with the tools they need to be more competitive in today’s marketplace.  Today, more than ever, companies need the ability to better manage their resources while making it easier for the workforce and the riteSOFT and Preactor integrated solution does just that.”

The products were integrated in a joint effort between riteSOFT and Quinn & Associates. Using standard SQL methods and Preactor scripting, a robust link was developed applicable to all situations where labor data collection and efficient scheduling of resources are needed.

riteTIME tracks employees’ time as they work on resources then reports this time and quantities to Preactor for it to update the schedules within Preactor  Scheduling Software.  Resources can be anything from employees to machines. The two systems are tightly integrated and all data transfer operations are initiated within Preactor. Users select a menu item and it exports resource data to riteTIME, updates the riteTIME database with Preactor  resource information, exports riteTIME transactions, pulls them into Preactor  and then updates the Preactor schedules.

Manufacturers in all verticals can benefit from greater resource management and more tightly managed business practices. This combined solution can help any company that wants to better track their employees and resources while keeping it simple enough for the employees to use.
The combined software solution is compatible with many ERP systems and legacy business software. The powerful combination can extend systems with basic work order generation to facilitate improved production activity control.
