E2 Shop System

E2 is great at getting you information via reports and you can drill down to specific details. This has helped us calculate hours, costs and track non-conformances to allow for improvements.The scheduling module is complicated and Shoptech does not offer much in the way of virtual training on implementation. We are paying for onsite training and implementation. All other aspects are pretty straight forward.

JobBOSS

Job Shops that have outgrown Quickbooks/Peachtree are a good fit and small to medium run shops are a good fit for JobBOSS. If you're still in the grey area between Quickbooks and a fully fledged ERP system, you can connect it with Quickbooks for your accounting which is a good medium for companies who would like to slowly roll, kind of upgrade out.

Pros

E2 Shop System

  • Bill of materials
  • Subassemblies
  • Inventory management
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

JobBOSS

  • Timekeeping. Clocking in and out.
  • Inventory control.
  • Travelers or job sheets that keep track of operations.
Thomas Gibbons | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

E2 Shop System

  • Annual maintenance costs for updates and support is rather costly.
  • You must really think about how you will use E2 so when you implement the software it is right the first time.
William Grimm | TrustRadius Reviewer

JobBOSS

  • The reporting is through Crystal Reports which is cumbersome to work with and requires someone who knows what they are doing. If you're moving from something like Quickbooks with built in report editing, you're going to be frustrated with creating custom reports.
  • If you run mutliple jobs on a single machine or use multi-pallet machines scheduling can get frustrating, and you will have to come up with your own solutions to schedule those machines. (This is not unique to JobBOSS scheduling. We tested several ERP systems in this range and most were lacking in this area).
  • Even with the 12.0 update, the interface is still rather dated for the onsite version. The online version looks much better.
Jeremiah Alexander | TrustRadius Reviewer

Alternatives Considered

E2 Shop System

E2 certainly was the cheaper of all the systems we looked at. But like so many other things you do get what you pay for and it proved to be a bad investment on our part.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

JobBOSS

JobBOSS is the centralized solution that has helped us consolidate nearly every process within our company. It's ability to create routings and calculate material by building a job saves us hours every day compared to Quickbooks. Its inventory management is faster and tracks more information than Wasp and its ability to understand raw stock and material shapes makes life so much simpler in a manufacturing environment.
Jeremiah Alexander | TrustRadius Reviewer

Return on Investment

E2 Shop System

  • Allowed us to streamline production process by printing a job traveler with manufacturing steps for each job. Previously, we used a punch clock to track time and did not isolate what steps were needed to do each job. This allows us to calculate costs much better. The ROI on calculated costs is high.
  • E2 can track non-conformances. By tracking time to fix manufacturing defects, we can focus our attention on corrective actions by priority. This will reduce common failures and increase our profitability. This ROI is very high as well.
William Grimm | TrustRadius Reviewer

JobBOSS

  • Paid for itself over and again with our complete shop management.
  • Payroll couldn't get any easier.
