Jobscope performs extensive enterprise resource planning (ERP) functions for businesses involved in project-oriented manufacturing. Modules of the system include quoting, estimating, engineering, CRM, production BOM, scheduling, financial management, analyzing orders, reporting functions, and assorted dashboards. The software can also integrate with a wide variety of CAD packages.
A diverse collection of operations can be managed by Jobscope, including project scheduling at multiple levels of the organization, sorting of different types of BOMs, automated shop floor labor collection, and bill of material imports from integrated CAD packages. Further integration with Excel allows exporting of data files.
Jobscope is an especially good fit for engineer-to-order and make-to-order companies in the aerospace, electronics, industrial machinery, metals, automotive, and high technology industries with complex or custom manufacturing requirements. We typically see it used by companies generating $5 million to $500 million in annual revenue.
The system’s modern user interface is designed to minimize learning curves and present data in a manner that maximizes the value of information. Visualized key performance indicators (KPIs) are provided in the system for easily-digestible business intelligence, while scheduling information can be viewed by department.
Real-time contract, project, and job costing can be posted in the system apart from the General Ledger, allowing users to see each expense as individual components that can be streamlined for more agile business operations, better financial performance, and higher productivity.
Jobscope has been focused on engineering and manufacturing companies for nearly 30 years, bringing deep expertise to system design and implementation. Established in 1980, the company was founded by individuals involved in both manufacturing management and software development.

Support of the product, ease of use. It's an overall user friendly software.
Complicated to use at first but with little direction it's not bad.
Go slow and listen to instructions. Also, use the online help, which covers everything.

We are an a build to order, make to order, metal fabrication company. Jobscope is used for quoting, order entry, material control, purchasing, production planning, scheduling, engineering, shipping, and accounting.
I have worked with many of ERP software companies, and the functionality of Jobscope is well suited to order driven businesses like ours; most other systems are make to stock based and have a hard time time dealing with the order driven environment.
The support and functionality is first rate, my only complaint is the fact that when new versions come out, our IT dept often loads them without explaining new features to users.
