EIS Incorporated was selected from a panel of industry analyst judges and by audience votes. The company’s demonstrated OpsTrakker manufacturing operations mobile application, which is built on SAP Mobile Platform and compatible with a variety of devices, brings manufacturing executions systems functionality to the user’s hand, providing material consumption reporting, production output reporting, line clearance activities and equipment use logging as part of the suite, reducing paperwork from the shop floor.
In the winning demonstration, EIS revealed the electronic logbook module as it captured information for an operations maintenance log of the calibration of a weigh scale.

“OpsTrakker by EIS Incorporated is a tool that manufacturers that are making operations available via mobile should seriously look into,” said Mike Lackey, vice president, Manufacturing Solutions, SAP. “This is an example of innovation which is being delivered by our partner ecosystem extending the value of manufacturing solutions from SAP.”
