Reviews of Virtual Process

says…

Virtual Process is an easy to implement cloud-based software system that manages shop-floor procedures and personnel. It is like having a virtual foreman at every work station. It has already increased worker productivity and decreased defects within a very short time frame.

The good: it is amazingly easy to implement and quite powerful.

The bad: I only wish I had heard about them before.
