Retread plant management in the clouds
Tire Company Solutions (TCS) Technologies announces its new cloud-based TreadTracks retread plant management system.
The system, which manages the retread process from the time the tire is picked up through the finished delivery, is an enterprise grade system handling operations from 1 to 100+ locations. TCS says it gives unprecedented visibility as to how to most efficiently manage a retread plant.
TreadTracks uses advanced touchscreen desktop and mobile interfaces to simplify the process for the end user and speed the flow of information throughout the system. By leveraging the interconnected components, managers can see in real-time the productivity of each aspect of their operations at each plant worldwide.
“As TCS has been implementing TreadTracks to our beta partners, we have received the most excitement about the instantaneous feedback to everyone from the shop floor to upper management,” says Shawn Puckett, TCS’s director of business development. “This enables companies to solve problems before they occur, make better decisions, and manage their supply chain much quicker and more efficiently than they have ever been able to do.”
TreadTracks works with existing hardware and follows industry standard practices and procedures to make moving to the system extremely simple. All customer data is easily accessible so it can integrate with not only TCS’s TirePower software, but with most point of sale systems.
TreadTracks workstations and mobile interfaces are ruggedized and made for a global workforce. They utilize a unique multilingual interface, allowing workers to operate in the native language, further reducing errors in the production process.
“By leveraging our cloud technology, we take the worries of server management, software upgrades, and patches off of our customer’s minds and allow them to focus on managing their operation,” said Barry Reese, TCS President. “They’ll always have the latest software. The last thing any plant manager wants is for their operations to be stopped while they’re trying to troubleshoot technology problems.”
Management features of the system include but are not limited to Production Scheduling, tracking of Raw Materials, Production and Fleet Reports, RAR tracking, and many more. Users of the system will be allowed to track tires through their retreading facility with bar code scanners, print labels at each checkpoint, and utilize long term tracking with the use of RFID tags.
