Shoptech Software
E2 Shop System is great for backlog and shipment summaries, which our organization uses it for every single day. We also use E2 Shop System to enter new jobs and to keep track of them until they gets shipped. E2 Shop System is also very good at keeping track of partial shipments; it has the option to make partial packing slips so that we make them for exact amount of parts we shipping. E2 Shop System also helps us to create a router, which goes on the shop floor with each individual job that shows all that needs to be done with for that particular job. There is an improvement required when it comes to the production schedule. It does the job for now but it doesn't notify when we are running late on jobs--it needs to be done manually currently.

Usability
Shoptech Software
It is extremely easy to learn and use E2 Shop System. It provides everything a manufacturing company might be looking for, starting from entering a new PO to shipping parts. Routers that get created from E2 Shop System also help track parts on the shop floor and is accessible from every where. E2 Shop System also now has an app, which is great when it comes to scanning router steps directly from your phone.

CMS takes time to learn and use the menu driven green screen. However, once you are familiar it makes for fast navigation.

Alternatives Considered
Shoptech Software
E2 seemed to be more user friendly and offered more modules and integration into our quickbooks program. We were able to import all of our customers and vendors easily. This was the main selling point on E2.

We have more control over the backend of CMS and the fact it runs on a 5250 emulator it run a lot faster for data entry.
