Cincinnati, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/16/2011 -- E2 is for machine shops, job shops, fabrication shops, mold/die shops, screw shops, repair shops, service shops, captive shops, spring manufacturers, stampers, machine builders, and plastic injection molding manufacturers, to name a few.
Inc. magazine selected Shoptech Software (http://www.shoptech.com)as one of the fastest growing 5,000 companies in the United States. This is the fifth consecutive year that Shoptech has won the prestigious Inc 5000 award and offers proof why specialized machine shops like Simon Industries use the superior software.
Since its founding in 1996, Simon Industries has been an industry leader in both design and manufacture of convection and conduction cooled heatsinks and related products. The Cary, NC based firm’s experience spans across several computing architectures, include Rugged COTS-VME/VME64x, VXS/VPX, VXI/PXI, AdvancedTCA/MicroTCA, COM Express, PC 104, and CompactPCI.
They offer a variety of services such as: a specialized machine shop catering to the embedded computing industry, sheet metal capabilities providing build-to-print or design-for-manufacture needs, in-house silk-screening providing custom artwork without the delay and additional cost seen with outsourcing.”
Jonathan Layne of Simon Industries noted, “Our E2 consultant not only showed us how the inventory module worked, but also gave us invaluable input on best practices we should incorporate into our current processes for all of E2. Now we are fully utilizing the inventory module and E2 to help us have real time data for WIP, inventory, labor costs allocated overhead, job status and tons of other data. “We initially thought that an on-site E2 consultant would show us how E2 works, however we definitely got more than just training!”
Simon Industries has been an E2 user for several years yet was only using a fraction of its capabilities. They were interested in learning more about the inventory module and how to move from a periodic to a perpetual inventory reporting system. The three-day training included custom accounting reports, top to bottom training on each E2 module and other consulting tips to improve efficiency.
