Metalworks, Inc. Review

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Profit Fab

Pros

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.

Cons

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

GREAT TOOL

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.....

Pleasant Gardens Machine: ProfitFab Software Review

Pros

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.

Cons

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.

Pleasant Gardens Machine: ProfitFab Software Review

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.
