JobPack is already saving us time and money after only 6 months of use

Pros

JobPack is very easy to use and implement. You don't realize how valuable a scheduling software tool is until you get it in place and up and running. The ability for us to visualize our jobs on the shop floor, as well as know what jobs are on-time, early, or going to be late, is incredible. JobPack has been there for us every step of the way. Their support is incredible. They answer the phone when you call and are eager to help you. They are always very prompt in replying to e-mails (sometimes within just a minute or two after sending it). It is a great feeling know they will be there for us when we need them.

Cons

The only thing I can think of is I wish they were located on the West Coast instead of the Midwest so I can take Pete and his team out to dinner to thank them for their support and help.

Must have to see future schedule and

First off, the JobPack group are very easy to work with. They are very attentive, and actually listen to what you are needing. The software itself is very intuitive and the schedule is very easy to view and change right out of the box, but the enhancements that JobPack developers have and can make has really set them apart from others I have looked at. The drag and drop feature is top notch. We went from knowing what the next week looked like, (and then guessing past that), to being able to see out as far as a year very accurately. Yes there will be some emergencies and jobs that get thrown in as a priority, but that is also where the software shines. Once you put your new job in, then schedule it, it will even show you what jobs will be pushed out and how much it pushed them out. HUGE!!!

Pros

Intuitive, Accurate, Easy to use, Customer Support

Cons

Data dictionary is mostly in German with some English translation and can be hard to map variables when creating reports.

JobPack is a Dinosaur

Pros

I do not have great things to say. You would be better off using a matrixed excel spreadsheet.

Cons

JobPack is overly complicated and is not easy to use. There are no settings to prevent you from changing a schedule that could end up ruining a line of production and lost revenue. Based off of requirements a suggested schedule would be nice. Along with weightings per a job.

Response from JobPack Production Scheduling Systems

Replied March 2019

JobPack has the ability to add priority value and weight jobs higher than others. We have no record of your company using JobPack and we typically don't provide software for publishing companies. Our system schedules manufacturing processes primarily for automotive, aerospace, medical, and energy industries.

Review of Jobpack scheduler

The JobPack scheduling system is a highly configurable tool that allows the user complete flexibility in configuring the system to match the customers business model. The effort required to configure the system is worth the work when the time comes to utilize this system. This scheduling tool will provide a very accurate picture of work flow in the customers facility and prevent unnecessary guessing when planning work out in the future.

Pros

The scheduling system is highly configurable and also capable of customization if the customer has that need.

Cons

This tool requires that the customer follow a process oriented method when using this system for production and this does require both scheduling and production employee's to change from old habits.

After 2 months of use

We installed Jobpack 2 month ago and it has smoothed out our delivery issues. We now have visability of work on the shop floor and can see when it starts to go late before the due date so we can take action to remedy the issues

Pros

Its fast and easy to use for someone who knows what they are doing and what they want. The shop floor data collection offers document viewing and real time status of work in progress The graphical planning board is easy for everyone to understand including sales reps who need to know when their customers work will be complete. The mobile data collection app is great for field service or assy staff to see what their next job is and clock in and out for recording times

Cons

Editing time clocks seems a bit clunky if shop operators make mistakes.
