Overall Satisfaction with E2 Shop System

We utilize E2 for all aspects of our Sheet Metal Fabrication, from purchasing to scheduling. E2 has many different modules that we use. They are:

Purchasing
Inventory
Order Entry
Job Travelers
Returns/Non-conformances

These modules have helped us significantly in tracking jobs throughout the process as well as compliance with our ISO standards.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
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.
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.
