E2 Shop System Software


 

E2 shop system by Shoptech Corporation is a manufacturing solution that offers scheduling, purchasing, shipping, customer management and accounting. The solution is designed for job shops, contract and multiple make-to-order manufacturers.

E2 shop system allows users to create both "quickie quotes" and complex estimates on labor, overhead and material 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 shop system generates shipping labels, packing slips and tracks shipments online to multiple shipping addresses. The materials management module controls components and parts, aligning the company's purchase needs with the entered orders, tracking delivery and finding the correct prices.

The contact management module helps users manage shop floor and the end client. It also pulls in business financials, so shops can manage payroll, accounts payable and receivable and general ledger from a single location. It provides multiple templates for reporting. Support is available via phone, email, chat and an online forum.

Pros

The software easily allows the effective administration of the business process, from quoting to customer all the way to receipt of payment. Everything is intuitive, and the user interface is easier than any other ERP system I have used. As with any ERP software, you will get more out of it if you have thorough, comprehensive, and accurate inputs into the system. E2 or any other ERP software is not a magic pill, but rather a process overhaul. There is work involved to getting the most of this or any other software, I believe you can get to where you want to be if your company can utilize the E2 software effectively. I would highly recommend E2 for any job shop.

Cons

The software might be more difficult to use for batch or continuous-flow operations shops. There is buy-in involved to get the most out of the software, but this is true of any ERP software and cannot be avoided.

Ease of use. Ability to run estimates, customer quotes, inventory, schedule the shop, track time, job costing, etc...., etc....E2 has full capability to effectively and efficiently run your shop.

Cons

There is no real downside to this software. The more you utilize it and become experienced in its capabilities the easier it is to use.

The general layout is clean and organised, there are a lot of possibilities we can implement in the company (scheduling, tracking, reports, ...). I like Quickview and its shortcuts, the ability to do custom reports, "Hot spots" and to open a new tabs in the web version.

Cons

Not user friendly for everyone, sometimes we have trouble to extract data, create reports. Can be slow, especially when there are a lot of steps and loading pages to create, process and print an order for example.

I looked at E2 SHOP, JobBOSS, Realtrac, Visual EstiTrack, and Fishbowl, plus have extensive working knowledge of Epicor.

Pros

Fresh interface, easy to navigate, easy to deploy. The support staff has been amazing, with tickets being responded to in near real time. The product is definitely a mature product, and all the small details one looks for in a job shop ERP system seem to be covered.

Deployment phase has an engineer assigned to you, so you have a single call for implementation help. Training has the basics covered in videos you can watch at your leisure, and they also have in-depth classes on every aspect. This comes with the software maintenance (6 or 12 months included).

Covers everything Epicor does, but at a much reduced price - and not as clunky.

Cons

Their web based product has a lot of delay, which was negated by using the on-premise system.
Some things take multiple clicks to do, as compared to the previous version that have only one or two clicks for the same feature.

before buying any software make sure it look seriously at E-2. Their prices are more affordable than you would think and by far best program for you.

Pros

the newest version of the software is great. the ability to create new items, quotes, jobs etc. is very easy. I looked into several different software options and to get the cloud based software the cost was higher than i expected and other company seemed to push to have you buy the on premise versions. the ability to add shop users later is not only easy but very affordable. the nice thing is you dont have to have shop users to be able to track or log times per job. you can enter in manually so if you are a smaller shop you can still take advantage of all the benefits of the software and be able to track P & L quick and easy.

Cons

My only downside to this was i used an old version for several years at another company. I was very jaded about looking at it for our new shop because how my previous employer had it set up. after seeing the newest version and all the improvements my mind was changed very quickly.

In general, we like it. We have 14 people using the software. Some are very proficient and others only use certain aspects, but everyone is able to get out of it what they need.

Pros

It is very user friendly. Once you get used to the way it is laid out, it is very easy to go from one section to another.
All the sections are integrated (quotes get carried over to orders, which get carried over to packing slips, etc) which makes it easy to check details and pricing.

Cons

Sometimes there are glitches, like when you want to print "all Invoices' that are open, and only one prints.
When you are looking for something, you really have to pay attention to what you chose to search. If it is not exact, you will not get the correct information.

Looks like they may have a good product if they get a lot of bugs worked out. Not ready for sale yet but they'll gladly sell it to you. If your shop is big enough to pay for this type of software and you need real time data entry as well as cost/pricing included for each job find something else. If you just want to keep a schedule go for something like Just Plan It or Odoo and use Quickbooks for the money side of things. You'll save a lot of money.

Pros

It does an OK job for the money but honestly they need to do some work on the programming side. Seems like a product that should still be in the design stage.

Cons

They make it difficult for floor guys to post stock to projects, the data recorder centers constantly don't clock guys into jobs, they don't allow for dry times in-between production stages, there are several things that do not work or don't work as they are supposed to, the time clock for employees doesn't automatically adjust for over time if a manual correction is made, the printing set up is terrible (I know this seems silly but it make a big difference), you can't have multiple tabs open so every time you want to move to a different section the browser has to update and many other small but big issues.

I've been working with Shoptech for just over a year and gave it my best effort. We have implemented many work arounds to try and work within the forced system. However, there are glaring issues around each corner and fixes are painfully slow to be implemented. Although the software is cloud-based there are many features of a cloud based software that are not being utilized. For example, records do not save until the user clicks save (standard cloud based software packages retain the information as the user updates it).

Pros

The concepts at a very high level are good. The modules and work flow make sense in general. The basic concepts are all good and at the core are what is needed out of an ERP system.

Cons

Where to start...

1. The number of clicks to accomplish a simple task is unreal and extremely time consuming.
2. Lack of customization - each company is very different in operation yet all are forced into a solution that does not work for all. Simple issues such as the way tables are viewed are forced by Shoptech and not able to be customized.
3. Customer service - Many issues raised by the online community are classified as "oversights" and not as defects as a result nothing is done to correct them
4. Slow improvements - The community can request enhancements to the software, yet this are very slow to be implemented (if at all).
5. Outdated - many features are copied over from old outdated software and not likely to change anytime soon as they attempt to keep the new cloud based software inline with the older software packages

We purchased E2 Shop System in October after months of research to find a manufacturing system that would integrate well with our accounting software that is already in place. There are several little quirks and kinks that we quickly discovered upon deploying the system that just made it a bit more tedious to use that honestly we probably wouldn't have purchased the software had we known this during the demo. The online training classes are not one-on-one and are instead a classroom type of environment, however, with having to stop every 3-4 minutes because the sample system interface is frozen or someone is having an issue understanding the procedure it tends to get a little lengthy and the content of the class is lost. We have actually taken it upon ourselves to pay the additional fee for someone to come in-house and go through what we still have yet to comprehend (yet have not been contacted to schedule a date well over a week of already approving and paying upfront costs for the trainer.) Hopefully, once we are able to sit down with the specialist all will be running smoothly for us and I will be able to provide a better review.

Pros

Web-based, Interface looks nice, Shipment progress is easy to follow

Cons

Difficult to learn, Manuals are out-dated, Customer support is hit or miss, Training classes are sometimes less than helpful and leave you desiring that one-on-one instruction.

We have been using E2 for well over 16 years and so far we love it. We have used other systems and this one just seed to get it right. In that time we have only had a handful of issues of which most were fixed in minutes and all we had to do was call Tech Support and explain what was not working. The customer and technical support staff are extremely knowledgeable in what their software can do and how they can customize it to fit your every need. They have even extra fields set aside for all most every function to carry different data types just in case you have found a data point that they haven't thought of.

Pros

E2 creates a clutter free work space with a simple layout and design. Shop Tech has broken down the manufacturing process to get a true understanding of how our company really operates. The bolt on modules allow for greater control of specific functions in particular departments. We specifically use the Scheduling and Custom Order Import Automation functions. Scheduling give us a top level view, department view, work center view, and all the way down to a view of sub parts that make up a single part. This tells us exactly where an order is as well as if we are under or over loaded at the work center and department level. All I have to do is pull up the schedule, click a button for the level of detail I want to display and away it goes. The Custom Order Import Function has allowed us to automate the order entry process by simply downloading a file from our customer, pointing where I saved the file, and clicking "Import". This function creates the order and based off our custom company settings which we have setup to automatically pull from stock jobs, inventory, post a quantity to make or a combination of all of the above. We can then run a requirement report to see what we need to make to fulfill open orders or to make stock for inventory. It really doesn't get easier than that.

Cons

The extra modules do have a cost but they are well worth it. On the plus side of that, E2 will demo the modules with full functionality and if it doesn't incorporate everything that you need you don't have to purchase it.

Pros

The ability to gather data on cost, and labor. Inventory tracking is probably the most useful aspect of this software.

Cons

The user interface is very clunky, and hard to navigate. The capability of the program is hard to realize due to how difficult it is to use.
I have, on multiple occasions, pulled my hair out trying to figure out why the program will not cooperate, only to find there was some missing information somewhere. Ok, this is my fault, but wouldn't it be nice if even the smallest window could pop up to say there is an error?
Sometimes I sign in and forget to actually click on the little green check mark. Turns out if you push the enter key to sign in results in the program window disappearing from the screen with no warning or indication as to why. One winds up waiting the several minutes expected for the program to respond only to find it is not opening after all.
The promise of what this software could enable a business to do is amazing. It is truly a shame how non-user friendly it is.

E2 makes our manufacturing easy to track and analyze. It is a very simple but powerful software.

Pros

My favorite part about E2 is the simple layout and design of each module. Anyone with an understanding of the flow in manufacturing can learn this software quickly. Also, the software is somewhat flexible which makes it easy to tailor around your company's specific style of processing jobs and orders. There is also a lot of useful data you can pull from the system to analyze manufacturing costs. My favorite is the Job Cost Summary which allows you to see in detail every cost of a specific job.

Cons

The one module I find difficult to use is the Scheduling module. For our company's style of manufacturing it has been hard to use and implement. We mostly build to stock, but we get a lot of build to order jobs that have to be rushed through manufacturing and really mess up the scheduling. I still have a lot to learn about the Scheduling module, but I wish there was a way to use sales history to continually update the job completion date. This would allow us to reschedule our work in progress to fill the shelves before we run out of stock. This module has a lot of promise but for now seems a bit cumbersome to use effectively.

Pros

The E2 Shop Software has changed our business in the best way possible. E2 is well thought out and easy to use. We can't imagine running our shop without E2. It keeps everything tracked and organized. We have noticed a huge change in our productivity. Thank you E2!

Cons

I wish I could copy and paste more information in the program. I also wish it had an easier compatibility with my accounting software.

All shop activities and Accounting activities are in one software package.

Pros

Software is very easy to use. There are various modules to meet a variety of needs. Updates are available as downloads so I can schedule them at our convenience. Support has always been immediately available and their staff follows up to make sure things are resolved. They also have Online tutorials and webinars that are helpful.

Cons

The customization of reports can be difficult to do on my own using the Crystal Report Writer software.

improved our inventory control and non-conformance control.

Pros

Priced well compared to competition, provides reports, upfront training provided. great for the shop floor guys to clock in and out of. While the training manuals were outdated, the software was easy enough to figure out on my own.

Cons

So many extra modules must be purchased to make it functional or editable. Customer service can be a little rough to get an answer or fix, but once you get to the the knowledgable person it will get resolved quickly.

Pros

The software allows you to create items on the fly to eliminate down time.
E2 is very customizable to your specific needs in your organization.
E2 has integrated the various currencies that are used in transactions.
The software has user security so that you can limit the information seen by each user
It is a fully functional program that takes the part from inception and quote stage to the full out Order processing and then to shipping.
We love the integration with Data Collection to minimize input of labour entries
Customer Service is great and they can usually fix the issue within 1 or 2 phone calls unless it is a larger issue but is also escalated to keep the down time to a minimum.
It is also pretty easy to teach new employees on how to use the program.

Cons

The software is a great product and I really don't have anything we don't like about the program. We use it daily and very rarely do we have any issues.

It greatly streamlined our shop management system, allowing us greater visibility and transparency of the whole process from order review through production to final inspection and shipment.

Pros

- The General layout of the software and UI makes it very simple and intuitive.
- The ability to customize reports
- The expandability of the software, being able to add-on as you grow.
- Customer service is very responsive and always willing to help.

Cons

- No major cons really to speak of a few minor inconveniences
- No EDI capability currently, which is far from a major problem.

Pros

The software enables us to track our jobs throughout the manufacturing process and is extremely easy to use. Their customer services representatives are knowledgeable and eager to assist. We also utilize their quality module for creating RMA/DMRs.

Cons

The aspect of ShopTech that I like least is probably the reporting capabilities. I find the "canned" reports to be lacking.
