We talk about their trainer, Kevin, who’s a machinist by trade and also used to use ProShop at a machine shop he worked at, so he’s a perfect trainer for them.

Episode 9

Paul and the guys discuss how material purchases work in ProShop, and how they have the ultimate control of how costs are allocated to jobs, related jobs with shared materials, and more.

Episode 11

We check in with Sean and James to see how their last few weeks of implementation are shaping up. They proudly show off their process for looking up Work Orders, and how this will continue to be a beneficial method in the future with the help of ProShop.

Episode 12

Sean and James describe the past few months implementing ProShop and learning from our team on how to run a shop more effectively with ProShop. They share that ProShop has brought a huge amount of accountability to their company, and recommends that any shop managing sophisticated work should consider an ERP like ProShop. It’s been a very fun opportunity to get to know the Cerven brothers and we have huge respect for what they’re building at Cerven Solutions and are grateful to be a small part of their success.
