Material Life Tracking Software

Instant status information

CrossTrack Material Tracking uses the industry standard (and free) MS SQL Server Express database to provide live material location and life status for all connected users. Visual countdowns show the thawing status of any materials, and icons give instant identification of usable material.

Customise your view

Columns can be resized and dragged into your preferred order, and custom fields can be easily added. All settings are on a per-user basis, allowing each user to see the information that's important to them. CrossTrack also has comprehensive user-based permissions, allowing you to provide features to just the staff that need them.

  • What does CrossTrack Material Tracking do?

    It provides tracking of both material and material life of composite material rolls, tapes and kits. Many composite cutting companies still rely on paper-based track of material life and have no way to track location other than manual search. CrossTrack Material Tracking provides a simple and easy way not only to instantly see where your material is and its life status, but also to generate traceability reports, essentialy for the exacting standards of the aerospace industry.

  • Who uses CrossTrack?

    Companies of all shapes and sizes. CrossTrack Material Tracking is the entry level version of our enterprise composite manufacturing suite, and is aimed at smaller workshops, but even multi-national companies are interested in using it due to its SQL database, fast reporting and low cost. Customers (covering all versions of CrossTrack) include Bell Helicopter, Bombardier Aerospace, Hexcel, Systima, General Electric Aviation, Terma, Connova, Nieke Composites, and many more.

  • How do I get started?

    Simple: Complete the form below. We'll contact you to arrange a demo, or if you're ready to trial the system we'll provide you with everything you need to get started.

  • What support is provided?

    All software updates are included free of charge in the subscription fee. Online technical support is also provided free of charge. If you want us to take care of installation remotely a one-off fee of €299 is applicable.

  • Other solutions are much more expensive. How can you offer it at this price?

    By making the implementation process pain-free we reduce the cost of sale. Customers are self-serving, but with support when they need it.

  • Is there really no lengthy tie in?

    No. Once you complete initial registration you're free to use the software for three months. At the end of the second month we'll send an invoice, payable in 30 days. If you don't wish to continue using CrossTrack just let us know and we'll cancel the invoice. If, later on, you decide to start using it again just continue the subscription.

  • Can I upgrade to the full CrossTrack Suite, and what are the benefits?

    A. Yes, there is a full upgrade path.There are various versions of CrossTrack above the Material Tracking version, which offer features such as tight integration to nesting, allowing you to go from CAD file to NC code fully automatically. Other features include scheduling of jobs for machines, much more information relating to traceability, nesting around defects and tracking of life down to ply level. As CrossTrack Material Tracking uses the same MS SQL Server database structure and even the same installation routine as the full CrossTrack suite the process of upgrading is very straightforward. Note: It is strongly recommended that you upgrade your SQL Server Express database to a full SQL Server license at the same time as performing a CrossTrack upgrade to a higher version.

  • Does CrossTrack Material Tracking require the JETCAM Expert nesting software?

    A. No, CrossTrack Material Tracking is completely standalone. You can take advantage of JETCAM Expert's powerful nesting by upgrading to the full CrossTrack suite at a later stage.

  • What are the system requirements?

    A. CrossTrack Material Tracking can run on any version of Windows currently supported by Microsoft with .NET 4.8+. Minimum RAM requirement is 4GB (or 8GB for full MS SQL Server), with the application itself only requiring around 100MB of hard disc space. 16GB+ RAM recommended. Both CrossTrack Material Tracking and SQL Server Express could be installed on the same PC or can connect to each other across a network. If you intend to use SQL Server (not Express version) then it is recommended (but not required) to have this on its own server, due to increased CPU and RAM requirements.

    CrossTrack installs as a client/server application, but an instance of the client can run on the same PC as the server e.g. a single license system of CrossTrack can be contained on a single PC. While an internet connection is not required for CrossTrack to run, a connection would be needed to provide remote support. CrossTrack itself does not connect to or use the internet in any way.
