GREENVILLE, S.C. Sept. 14, 2022 — IPE, the innovator in advanced production management, incentive payroll, and quality assurance solutions, is unveiling an all-new, Version 4 IP-Realtime™ factory floor visibility and control solution for fashion, furniture, and other consumer and industrial sewn products manufacturers. The newly reimagined software delivers a vastly improved user experience (UX) for executives, managers and production teams. Faster and more responsive, V4 also substantially expands the system’s production management, quality control, reporting and other capabilities.
IPE Managing Partner Brad Mikes explains, “Working closely with existing clients, we have developed a simpler, faster, and more comprehensive solution than ever before. We have also added many new capabilities to give managers, supervisors and production workers the real-time information they need to make faster, better-informed decisions. In addition to increasing productivity and efficiency, V4 enables manufacturers to pivot immediately to address rapidly changing production risks and requirements.”
IP Realtime V4 includes many notable improvements and benefits.
All-new Android-based production app for tablets
Clean, intuitive user interface
Faster, more responsive system performance
Expanded reporting capabilities
Following implementation at existing IPE client sites, IP Realtime V4 is generally available through all IPE sales channels. The continuous development roadmap of the product includes the planned release of all-new quality assurance and production supervisor apps in the coming months.
IP-Realtime leverages standard, off-the-shelf tablet computers positioned at each production workstation or team location to collect information on and timestamp every production activity. IPE’s custom Android apps display productivity, work pacing and training tools, and product and construction details for production workers and teams. Production leaders rely on always up-to-date information on production flow, downtime, quality, and other key performance indicators to make necessary changes to ensure proper line balance and uninterrupted order deliveries. Executives and remote stakeholders use convenient dashboards on mobile devices to monitor factory operations.
