E2 Shop System Software


 

E2 by Shoptech Corporation brings all business operations into a single simple solution, from estimating to scheduling, purchasing, shipping and even customer management and accounting, with its easy-to-use solution. Designed specifically for job shops, contract and a variety of make-to-order manufacturers, Shoptech's comprehensive ERP helps job shops run more smoothly, while increasing both productivity and profits.

E2 simplifies estimating, allowing users to create both "quickie quotes" and complex estimates on labor, overhead, material, etc., that can be faxed or emailed with attached drawings or pictures. These quotes can be automatically turned into orders, with no double entry required.

E2 automatically generates shipping labels and packing slips and then tracks shipments online to multiple shipping addresses. Its materials management module controls all components and parts, aligning the company's purchase needs with the entered orders, as well as tracking delivery and finding the best prices.

E2's scheduling module eliminates guesswork, while its contact management module helps shops ensure that everyone stays on the same page, from the shop floor to the end client. It also pulls in all business financials, so shops can manage payroll, accounts payable and receivable and general ledger from a single location, as well as using one of the 200 built-in reports for comprehensive analysis.

All of these features are supported by Shoptech's national network of regional offices and training centers, as well as a 'round-the-clock techncal service center.

We have been using E2 since 1996, all day, every day. As a 10 person company we have found it immensely helpful in keeping our business organized. It has become the backbone of our organization.

Pros

-Quote descriptions and details are entered once and follow through to Orders, then Shipments, then Billing. Yet you can still modify details at any step.
-Orders now have uniform appearance going into our shop.
-Standardization, where applicable, has eliminated redundant work.
-Purchase orders cost directly to a job, making job costing easier and more accurate than before.
-We use the accounting module and all transactions are pulled from the other modules. No transfer or re-entry required.
-Support personnel has always been good.
-With Crystal Reports, you can modify the reports.
-Data collection in the shop leads to accurate run time reporting, as well as accurate job costing.

Cons

-There are more reports that I'd like to see standard.
-If one isn't familiar with Crystal Reports, report modification is a hassle and added expense.
-There is no spell checking in description fields.

Advice to Others

When you buy this product, take the time to get some training. It's a powerful tool and there are lots of levers and knobs. I suggest a basic training and then a follow up training maybe a month or two later. Once you're more familiar with the layout and navigation, extra training really illuminates all the functions available.

This is a simple program to learn the basics of with a multitude of options. The user interface is very straight forward. It is mostly all encompassing as far as ERP systems go. The options are plentiful, buried a bit, but easy to find. Extra seats are Included. A good tool for a small business trying to track quote to cash.

Generally this is a great product. We have a few issues from time to time and a few things don't make sense to us but all in all we are happy with the information we collect and analyze with E2.

Pros

That it is easy to use on a day to day basis. We can look at information in real time.

Cons

Because we are job shop using the scheduling is a little difficult. We have had a few training sessions on using it however it doesn't seem to work as easily as other modules. Also something that really annoys me is that I cannot set the Tax default to Yes on the Vendor Invoice module. And I think I should have an option of typing in the PO# to bring up a receiver also in Vendor Invoicing. Also we feel we should have the option to look up a job# in Order entry by using the Quote #.

All in all a good product.

I am the AS9100 Lead Auditor and Document Control personnel for a composites company in Oregon. While there are some beneficial uses as an ERP system, I don't find that the Quality Section is nearly extensive enough for document control functions. It is great for electronic disbursement, however its functionality for controlling documents is very limited.

Pros

Elimination of forms being edited by non document control associates

Cons

No way to control drawings electronically-it is just a screen shot of what the documents look like. Fields are unable to be edited for anything-receiving logs, etc. The fact that these can't be filled in digitally and emailed makes the use of this probably unlikely.

Pros

Will work with you on financing options and great customer/tech support

Cons

Would like to see the ability to add more quantities when quoting.

Advice to Others

Get the online demonstration given by sales to see if it has what you need. Was great to see the system in full operation before deciding to buy.

Pros

Ease of Use, functional flow. This software hits every aspect that we need to.

Cons

No real cons, we do not use the scheduling part of the software because it doesn't really work for how we do things. Other than that this is a great package

I have worked with E2 Shop Systems for 16+ years, I can't say enough about the program or the support! Top notch! When I moved to Tennessee about 14 years ago, my current employer was using Quick Books and it just wasn't doing the job we needed for our shop so when software talk started I explained the ease of E2 and all the shop floor control that it had. We still use Quick Books for our accounting but E2 for everything else.

Pros

Easy to use! The support they offer is great. What ever your is they are quick to react to your needs.

Cons

We have been using the E2 for almost 10 months now. It was very simple to implement and is easy to navigate. Customer service is great!

Pros

Very simply to use. Syncing E2 with QuickBooks seems to be working well. We are a job shop so things move very quickly. From quoting a job to work orders to shipping, it all can be done fairly quickly and easily.

Customer service is spot on. Anytime I need to talk or communicate, they are there to help with a phone call or a web-x.

Cons

Reports lack customization for our specific needs, it can be done but there is a cost for that. E2 does not have the ability to spell check, so I'm updating in Word and pasting data into comments. E2 only has the ability to have one screen open at a given time which can be very cumbersome when you need to review your data. You can open a second E2 system on your computer, but as we are a small company we do not have that many seats in to do this all the time. Global scheduling has the ability to auto run behind the scenes, but again needs another seat.

Advice to Others

Do your homework and speak with others that are using it to see if this is right for your shop production needs.

We bought this system thinking it was going to be very user friendly. The problem is it take so much information to get to the end game to make it worth while. We are a true Job shop and we have 1000's of different parts we do in a year. 50% of which won't repeat often. This was just too cumbersome for us to use. We have developed a few excel programs and inventory management solutions that just fit our needs more closely.

Pros

It is an all inclusive system that might work well for shops doing repetitive work.

Cons

Too much data needs to be entered to quote a single part. Also, you cannot quote multiple Qty's at different labor rates. You can quote different labor rates per operation, but from a QTY breakdown you cannot. Not a great program for those specialty shops doing many different parts each day.

We have been using the E2 for almost 10 years. It was very simple to implement and is easy to navigate. Customer service is great!

Pros

Very simply to use. However, we were not able to sync E2 with QuickBooks so our accounting and payroll are still being done in QuickBooks. We are a job shop so things move very quickly. From quoting a job to work orders to shipping, it all can be done fairly quickly and easily.

Cons

Reports lack customization for our specific needs, it can be done but there is a cost for that.

As a CNC routing company we've had all the newest technology when it comes to our CNC routers, and especially our wood powder coating line, but we were still doing quotes the old fashion way, pen and paper. I have been one of the primary users of E2, and after data entry, it cuts my time dramatically. There are quotes that would have taken me all day to do, but with E2 I was able to get them complete in less than an hour. Quoting and billing are the primary functions we use at this time with E2, and I can tell you that it works seamlessly with QuickBooks, which was super beneficial to us as we didn't want to reinvent the wheel when it came to accounting. E2 allowed for a smooth transition where we can use both products and not miss a beat.

Pros

Ease of use and compatibility with other software

Cons

Maintenance fees (but everyone has them)

Advice to Others

When we got the software a few years back we did our research and we were not able to find another shop system that offered as much as E2 for the price.
