Flexibility, ease of use, and informative, three words that describe the new ORAP Parts-Trac user application. We have worked diligently, over 2 years' time, gathering feedback from existing customers and taking time to focus on emerging technology and human interaction. The new ORAP Parts-Trac is focused on a graphical interface that allows for a more intuitive user experience. SPS has worked with a human factors expert to design an updated user interface that simplifies the tasks related to maintaining the current status of your capital parts.
All of the capability of the legacy system has been preserved, and several new features were added based on feedback from our users group on their additional needs such as, an intuitive drag-and-drop functionality for easily executing parts Transactions; customizable Advisories to alert you about issues with your parts data; a graphical view of all your parts currently installed in your fleet, storerooms, and repair facilities; and, the concept of Part Status which gives you a clear understanding of the "as-of-today" status of your parts (e.g., Operating, Available, Out for Repair, Repair Hold, Scrapped, etc.). Also, we are actively working on developing on-demand analytics dashboard and forecasting capabilities to meet our customers' parts planning needs and requirements – to be released as future enhancements (along with other capabilities).
The end result is a system that is easy to learn, easy to use, and very powerful.
