Create a Real-Time Production Job Board

Having trouble keeping up with all of the jobs in production?  Wish you and your team had access to a shared, birds-eye view showing the status of jobs in real-time?  This can be a common problem of most sign shops, and luckily has a relatively easy fix: The Production Job Board.


The Production Job Board is a customized, shared, and real-time dashboard showing every job's status, due date, salesperson, and any other information you would like to include.


The board is a shared Google Spreadsheet customized for your shop.  (click image below for a brief example of how effective a production job board can be for your team)

Jobs can be color-coded and conditionally formatted to suit your needs.  Your team can collaborate on the board, making changes on-the-fly as the job progresses through production, with changes refreshing as soon as they're made.  


Interested in getting a better understanding of your workflow and jobs in production?  Contact me today to create a fully custom Production Job Board for your shop!

    When I originally left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the same comment. Is there a way you can remove me from that service? Thank you!

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being ripped off? I'd truly appreciate it.

    Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was curious about your situation; many of us have developed some nice procedures and we are looking to swap strategies with other folks, please shoot me an e-mail if interested.
