We are a manufacturing company of cable bus, we have multiple levels of how our systems go together. To use we had to adapt our tables to make the two systems work together. We ended up writing our own system as we were almost there with how our tables were designed. Would have loved if the two married easy together
I would say that it is an all inclusive software, very user friendly, has the ability to be tailored to each individual shop. Having the ability to mold the software to your shop vs having to mold the shop around the software is just great!
Our favorite part is the flexibility of the software. it truly is easy to understand and use.
I have not found anything yet that i dislike, with any hiccups i have ran across so far there has been a fix, or a different way to access the information i’m looking for. At this point it’s really learning all the features as a new user.
I think it’s a great program that can be a very useful tool for our company!
It’s fairly easy to use, and alot easier to track sales and stock!
It seems like there are “a lot” of steps sometimes.
For our AS9100 job shop it meets all our needs, and they are very active in updates to improve productivity of the software interface reducing time spent on computer task’s
The amount of time it reduced compared to the previous big box software we were using. The preview pic on the travelers and through out the system.
They have been so proactive with fixing glitches or small short comings that i have no real complaints. I really like the software.
ShopKeeper is able to track a job from proposals from customers, to requesting quotes from outside vendors such as raw material or plating. Then you’re able to schedule the jobs on machines and estimate how long each process will take. You can also see the status of each job by tracking the production and see how the actual vs estimates measure up. When the job is done, the software also creates shipping documents and manages inventory.
It’s nice that one software can track a job from “cradle to grave”. Having a picture of the part also helps when scheduling to quickly refresh my memory what each part number looks like.
The software is complex and has many functions I’ve yet to use. I would like to see a system that can start with the most basic functions and add more options as the user becomes more familiar with how the software works.
