If used correctly, the audit functions of the application are very helpful. In conjunction with our shop codes we are able to track production of product quickly.

Likes Least

Does not have the ability to apply bin locations to work in process or allow for multiple bin locations for product stored in multiple areas.

Recommendations

If you have a system that runs single jobs, one at a time on each operation and your operators are diligent about clocking in and out of the jobs correctly, relieving material as used, recording correct counts, this software does a great job of tracking the information and displaying it in real time. The MRP function works very well and by verifying inventories on a monthly bases you will be very pleased. Very important to remember training personnel to properly use the product is vital.

We purchased Profit Fab in 1999 and have been very pleased with it. Profit Fab has all the features we needed to run our metal fabrication shop of over 60 employees. The developers are continuously improving it with periodic updates. Ease of use for the admins and the shop employees. Technical support is outstanding.

Likes Least

Initial investment is high but the software pays for itself in a short period of time.

Recommendations

The sales people are very easy to work with. They do not hard sell or try to sell you more than you need.

Too many steps, to get something complete. You have to jump through to many windows. Needs to be simplified.

Recommendations

Simplify the program. Less jumping around through all the windows. Should be easier to use.

This software makes it easy to communicate every aspect of a job to the shop floor. It accurately quotes jobs and then turns those quotes into detailed route sheets. It also lists setup and run times on the routing, giving the employee an idea of what time frame is expected. This software is designed to make a machine shop like ours money; and it does just that.

Likes Least

The software could have better inventory functions. We would like to be able to label all our stock items with bar-codes, scan those bar-codes when an item is taken, and the inventory automatically be updated. We would also like for ProfitFab to generate a purchase order (and possibly email it) when the item reaches a re-order point.

Recommendations

This Software includes every function necessary for communication and finances, and it will make you money.

It is a little cumbersome in some areas, feels like you have to go through too many steps to get an order entered. Customer Support is amazing, very patient walking us through all our issues.

Pros

It is the COMPLETE package. Once you figure it out, and understand how it works, it creates efficiency, reduces errors.

Cons

Too many steps.....

Advice to Others

For the price, this ERP product is perfect for the manufacturing industry. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a program that handles all the areas of job shopping. From the Quote to the Accounting.

We have been with ProfitFab since 2YK, I am a believer in office-to-floor communication. ProfitFab allows us to connect directly with the shop floor via job packets including material and tool lists, detailed routing, and accurate setup and per part run times.

Pros

It also lists setup and run times on the routing, giving the employee an idea of what time frame is expected. This software is designed to make a machine shop like ours money; and it does just that.
