SYSPRO ShopClock captures employee time quickly and accurately in real-time using touch screens, keyboard, or scanning technology. This allows improved accuracy in job costing, employee productivity tracking, and better management of shop floor resources as well as providing the critical link between the shop floor, SYSPRO Factory Scheduling and your payroll system.

ShopClock tracks employee time on jobs/operations from work stations on the floor or office. ShopClock data is validated against SYSPRO’s Work in Progress (WIP) module and posted in real time. ShopClock also tracks non-job activities such as attendance and non-productive time, and can be used to kit issue material straight from the shop floor.

The on-screen “Window of Time” Gantt chart provides executives, sales staff, and shop floor supervisors an up-to-the-minute view of the shop floor. The bars on the Gantt chart are color-coded and grow dynamically to give real time feedback.

In SYSPRO and ShopClock, the “Shop Floor View” displays an image of your own shop floor environment overlaid with your work centers showing real-time updates of activity across your floor. A separate Administrator Console allows you to manage supervisory activities in ShopClock

ShopClock delivers a full range of flexible set-up options to match your SYSPRO WIP environment as well as your labor rules and policies.
