E2 Manufacturing System Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about E2 Manufacturing System's features:

Dave B.

E2 MFG Implemented 3/4/2019

2019-05-23

As Production manager, I have so much more data available through E2 than I had access to prior to implementation.

Pros

The access to data through QuickView and report hyperlinks makes finding the information very easy.

Cons

Hopefully, the interface will be completed soon.

Metalfab Manufacturing, Inc. Review

2020-05-18

Overall its been really good, it takes a lot of figuring out, but it really does put all our information together and keep things organized in a way to produce usable data and reports.

Pros

The ability to bring everything together in one place, where all management and supervisors can access it has been great.

Cons

A regular challenge I face is trying to figure out the right location or combination of steps it takes to change certain items within the system. There are not explanations of pathways. For example, the other day I wanted to pick specific lots of material for a job we were running. I thought I would be given the option right at job material processing. Nope. I can see the different lots, but the numbers are locked, I couldn't change them. After many failed attempts. I finally called support. Long story short. I have to process, go into details, unprocess the line, go into the sub-details and type in the amount for each lot. That's an example of a common frustration I find in the system. There are lots of locked numbers. I understand some are necessary, but others just don't seem to make sense. The process to then alter them does not always follow a discernible pattern. You can often find the same information in multiple spots, but finding the place it drives from is a shot in the dark.

Excellent software for small manufacturing businesses

2017-12-19

I know it's difficult to launch a software and continually upgrade it to meet the customers needs.

Pros

The data collection system is very user friendly for the employees on the floor and provides great feedback and reporting for the management team.

Cons

If the user is unaware of the nuances, the data could be skewed, or the user could be stopped in their tracks, or worse yet, the action of the subsequent user could be negatively impacted.

E2 Manufacturing has helped us plan schedule of manufacturing.

2020-09-25

We are only using a small subset of the capabilities at first, but we have solved our manufacturing scheduling issues by tracking machine and personnel usage time.

Pros

Being able to access SQL backend is beneficial for writing customized reports.

Cons

Would like to see what users are logged from login screen as sometimes concurrent licenses are orphaned.

Shoptech is a full-featured ERP application that covers all of the bases

2020-12-28

Still in the setup phases

Pros

The integration is well done, there are many facets to the software setup that enhance the integration.

Cons

I wish the training video's were more up-to-date on some of the advanced features like scheduling and the web interfaces.

Transitioned from QuickBooks to E2 MFG

2020-02-03

Once you've had a session with an on-site ShopTech consultant that you like, only schedule that consultant for every other session!

Pros

Improvement of inventory tracking coming from an Excel-based, manual process that'd grown to be quite cumbersome.

Cons

The biggest hurdle/challenge in learning and implementing MFG was understanding a whole new terminology; allocations, transfers, material/job requirements, processing, etc. and how those functioned in MFG specifically. As well sometimes, certain terms are used interchangeably in certain places and this can lead to temporary confusion. There are many ways to accomplish a single task. This flexibility is nice once you're used to the system but can be overwhelming in the beginning.

E2 Shoptech

2019-05-13

Pros

Visibility is key for us, and with this software you can follow an opportunity through from initial stages of quoting through final stages of billing and everything in between.

Cons

It can be difficult to make changes to orders once in process, but hopefully that is something their team recognizes and will help to rectify in the future.

Over thought and over engineered nightmare

2018-04-27

This system also puts your parts from a PO in the order they want to, not how you entered them. you can't customize any reports without paying or going through a bunch of trouble.

E2 Mfg System Review

2019-08-20

E2 Manufacturing System has helped to bring the company into the technology age. E2 MFG is better for a simple manufacturing shop rather than a multi-layer full business. Unfortunately, we have outgrown E2 and are now having issues with certain aspects.

Pros

This software has a nice interface with easy to follow tabs.

Cons

Constant need to call customer support due to glitches or other defects in code.

E2 - Powerful and well worth the investment

2018-12-18

E2 has helped us be able to reign in hundreds of variables and see an organized shop floor and schedule. It takes dedication to learn and upkeep, but well worth the time and cost.

Pros

It is very intuitive and extremely detailed. Nothing is missed.

Cons

Hard to learn at first, but customer support more than makes up for it.

Couldn't implement what they promised at sale

2021-03-25

Very disappointing. Couldn't actually get it to work. Continued on with current system. Understood that they couldn't get there even though they promised they could at time of sale. But then they ghosted me and said all sales are final even though their experts said they couldn't do what they said they could do. Not very good ethics in my opinion.

Pros

Built on SQL database so lookups are simple

Cons

We were sold a list of things during the sales cycle that they weren't able to make good on come implementation time. Then turned their back on me and ghosted me like I didn't exist. About as bad an experience as I could have dreamed up. Be very careful with this group. All sales are final, even if they can't deliver.

E2 Manufacturing Review

2019-05-14

The whiteboard and scheduling module has helped us greatly.

Pros

E2 is a huge step forward from where we were as an organization. The powerful features and endless options make the possibilities for this software seem endless. If you want to perform a particular function odds are E2 has a way to do it.

Cons

E2 was such a drastic shift from where we came from that eployees took a long time to adjust, Those that are willing to experiment with the software and its capabilities have had a much easier transition than those who are not.

Very detailed, excellent Tech Support

2020-04-17

I am very happy my company switched from E2 Pro to E2 Mfg, this new system has much more versatility, detail, and is a lot more user friendly. Very happy with the new E2 Mfg product.

Pros

This software is very detailed and makes it easy to make changes that keep production going.

Cons

I wish there was a grid in the Order Entry tab to search for the Part Number.

Overall we enjoy the product, it has helped us reach a new company milestone and will continue to help us into the next company leaps in the future.

Pros

Once the software is learned, it is a pretty intuitive and easy to use product.

Cons

Ability to modify standard document layout should be included in the software and should not be an add-in.

Some of the changes made through upgrades have been pretty frustrating and seem to be focused on a select few customers and don't make sense for the rest.

Compared to three other ERP/MRP systems

2020-02-21

Having used a couple of other ERP systems, I find that E2 gets it right. E2 is easy to use, but not so much so that you still don't have to grow into all it can do.

Pros

This software has all the bells and whistles that other ERPs have, but with an easier to use set up.

Cons

I would have liked an "old school" hard copy manual that I could read through and highlight.

My Review

2020-01-02

I love using E2! Literally the easiest and quickest software I've ever used. There has been times E2 has froze up on me, but the Support team has helped me through it in timely manner, and for that, I am grateful.

Pros

I like the speed and the accuracy of this software. Its easy to navigate through and get the job done a lot quicker than other software(s) I've worked with in the past.

Cons

Sometimes can be not so user-friendly, I often get confused when orders don't want to "Process".
