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.

I believe that Microsoft 365 Business Premium is applicable for any type of work or scenario. It's what I like the most about this program. In addition, it is the software that is used the most here in Mexico, and that makes it accessible to all, we should not spend financial or time in training new recruits, they recognize it just by looking at it. Where I think it could not work well is in the use of some devices, such as tablets. In things, it is very difficult to use these programs on manual devices, outside of computers.
Read full review Pros 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. Read full review Work remotely with ease All documents readily available This software can be used on any device Very user friendly and efficient Confidence in Microsoft brand performance and dependability Cost effective with always having the latest updates without having to purchase a new software package Customer service is outstanding Read full review Cons 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. Read full review The only thing that is a bit cumbersome is that it doesn't seem that you can save files directly to programs like one drive if you aren't using a Microsoft program to generate the document. An example of this would be if I am working in a PDF in our PDF Program I have to first save it to my desktop and then drag it into one drive. I end up with duplicates and that can sometimes make it hard to remember which is the most up-to-date. Read full review Likelihood to Renew

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.

The basic apps are straightforward and easy to use, especially since they have been around so long. I'm referring to the basic apps like Outlook, Excel, Word, PowerPoint, OneNote, etc. Other features such as Microsoft Teams and Sharepoint Sites, Sharepoint Lists, Sharepoint Groups, etc. all require a higher level of knowledge to both implement and use properly

In the last 5 years, Microsoft has come a long way. The performance of the products has become more and more user-friendly and it seems that the feedback provided by the user community is being listened to and worked on. The processes are very fast and seamless. There are negligible errors and doesn't slow the systems down.

As mentioned elsewhere in the review, Microsoft has historically paid attention to community feedback and issues, but timeliness can improve, and so can the addressing of long-standing issues about which many users have said "I have this issue too!" but no official solution exists. For issues that do have a solution, however, the solution is usually not difficult to find, and the explanation of features on Microsoft's website can mitigate many problems.

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.

Before migrating to Microsoft 365 Business Premium, we possessed an in-house exchange server. Therefore, it was difficult for us to look at alternatives to Microsoft for a solution – we did look at the Google Suite of products, but the transition for us seemed less cumbersome to stay with Microsoft from a staff and administrative perspective. While the G Suite does offer us many outstanding products and services, we also didn’t feel that Gmail is up-to-par as a corporate solution the way Exchange/Outlook/OWA are – this alone was also a driving force for our end-users, as there was minimal transition for them to move from an on-premise solution to an off-premise solution. The additional features of SharePoint, Teams, Project, and so many other applications within Microsoft 365 also helped us make a strong case to stay with Microsoft and expand what we were using. The end-user and mobile protections of InTune have also put us at ease when issuing laptops and mobile phones to an almost fully-remote end-user base.
Read full review Return on Investment E2 almost put us out of business We certainly had no ROI It was a poor decision on our part to choose E2 Read full review Teams has streamlined our chats within each department so its easy to help out each other when problems or issues arise as well as having chat conversations in real time instead of the slower email option. This is especially handy when peopel are not working in the same space and cannot use a phone. All of our major communications, are done through Outlook email keeping everyone on the same page of issues within our organization or updates coming out for example Excel provides a simple system for creating our schedules, Tracking customer issues, project boards etc. having all these readily available minimizes time spent looking for information and grants more time for customer interaction and increasing service and sales.
