Ironsides Technology Launches Nor’Star Automated Order Tracking Version 2
Ironsides Nor’Star combines automated production tracking, productivity reporting and cost analytics in one platform helping commercial printers maximize efficiencies and drive profitability.
Westford, MA. June, 2020 – Ironsides Technology, a leading provider of automated production business intelligence for the printing, mailing, fulfillment, and packaging industries, today announced the release of the Ironsides Nor’Star Automated Order Tracking Version 2.
Ironsides AOT (Automated Order Tracking) provides real-time visibility to all prepress, composition and document engineering activity, tracking each customer, project type, quantity, due date, approval and other data points throughout the prepress workflow. AOT instantly reports on the whereabouts of jobs and individual pieces within your document factory irrespective of how Orders have been streamed, batched or comingled. Use AOT to “pull” complete Orders or individual pieces from production without having to search the shop floor for them.
Detailed reporting in AOT helps prepress managers identify potential bottlenecks and understand where and why rework was required. Ironsides AOT’s auditing capabilities help ensure that customer SLA, compliance and regulatory requirements are met through the prepress process.
Ironsides AOT integrates seamlessly with Ironsides APT (Automated Production Tracking), which monitors and reports on individual pieces and complete jobs being printed, finished, mailed and shipped across all brands of continuous and cut sheet printers, ink jet printers, inserters, finishing and bindery equipment. Ironsides APT tracks job performance, pieces and productivity by device, operator and job, providing the information necessary to optimize production schedules and delivery performance. Ironsides APT allows for 100 percent distribution compliance, providing assurance that all jobs down to the piece-level have been assembled correctly, accounted for, and are fully compliant with industry required rules and regulations.
