E2 Shop System overview

E2 Shop System by Shoptech is a shop management solution for manufacturers and made-to-order job shops with total shop floor control and order management. Designed to assist any size and type of shop including repair shops, fabrication shops, and manufacturers, E2 Shop System provides features for estimating, order management, material purchase orders, scheduling, quality control, data collection, shipping management and tracking, and accounting.

In order to assist users with generating accurate quotes and estimates, E2 Shop System provides detailed cost reports for materials, labor, overhead, and more, and allows users to access historical data on similar jobs for comparison. Businesses can also be informed of un-answered estimates in order to arrange follow-ups to understand why the job was not accepted. Quotes can be transformed into orders with just one click to avoid repeated data entry and job folders are automatically generated which allow team members to track the project from end-to-end with real-time updates.

Once orders have been generated users can schedule tasks for different teams and identify bottlenecks, anticipate problems with what-if scenarios, quality control, manage shipping, and track shipments online. E2 Shop System can be used to automate shop floor tasks with workflows for material management, sending RQFs to vendors, tracking inventory, generating packing slips and shipping labels, creating backorders, generating sales reports, and more.

Bottomline, the E2 Shop System is affordable, easy to use, expandable, versatile and worth the price we paid. The support is top notch and the sales process and our data transition was effortless. We purchased our software on February 23, 2005 and have been a customer for over 14 years!! The service and support has remained consistent over that time period and the company seems to be extremely customer focused. I would highly recommend the E2 Shop System.

The user interface is easy to understand and navigate. The routing and BOM functions work well. Outgoing paperwork (packing slips, vendor returns, RMAs...etc) are generated easily. The quality module works well for us. Ultimately its a great software for smaller job shops; ie, less than 25 employees.

So far - we have been very happy with it. The simplicity of the product is a great. As it matures, perhaps some of the features will grow too. We will continue to support that endeavor by providing as much feedback as we can, and offering new product ideas that can be rolled out into the system.

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.
