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.

It is a factory process ERP suitable for flow manufacturing, perhaps the best in its class for functionality and value. Great for medium sized manufacturers.. especially food manufacturers.

Pros
Shoptech Software
  • E2 is very user friendly. Once configured, users can start using without a long training time. We implemented in stages so they would not get overwhelmed.
  • E2 has a ton of reports available. We print time tracking on a daily basis to review hours and steps during manufacturing.
  • E2 allows you to customize reports using Crystal Reports to allow you to get the information you need out of the reports.

  • Stability, it reminds of a old COBOL system found in plants. It just runs and never stops.
  • Established, Infor Adage made an A grade platform.
  • Support, even though Infor Adage is not supporting it anymore, other companies are still developing add ons for it.

Cons
Shoptech Software
  • Support what's purchased, after our purchase was made, I never heard from them again.
  • To reiterate I believe the software is excellent but if you have any support issues, you're done.

  • Infor has moved onto their new manufacturing package, so they have slowed in their development of Adage, and the user interface is a bit dated, but functional. It could use a technical refresh on the operator screens and access. It is not web based.
  • Integration with EDI is weak. There is poor support for ASNs (Advanced Ship Noticies) and freight management has to be brought in from the outside.
  • Security takes a while to update and administer.

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.

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.

I was not here for when Adage was introduced but I can say having had experience with Oracle I can say that it can hold its own. When it gets down to, Adage is easier and cheaper to maintain then other ERP's. It can do the same tasks other ERP's can do and does them well.

Return on Investment
Shoptech Software
  • E2 almost put us out of business
  • We certainly had no ROI
  • It was a poor decision on our part to choose E2

Infor
  • It's scaled well with our company, and we haven't seen the need to switch packages, it works well for us.
  • Our IT staff doesn't spend time fighting application or data failures, it's a clean running package (we have an IT staff of 3).
  • We can get our work done, and it handles business loads well.
