Speaker 1 (00:05):
So we're a build to print, high mix, low volume job shop. I'd say 95% of our work is for the commercial, aerospace, and private space sector. We do a lot of prototype work. We don't build thousands of parts. We build 10 parts, 20 parts. A large run for us is maybe a hundred parts.
Speaker 2 (00:23):
My favorite thing about manufacturing would have to be taking somebody's idea and turning it into
something tangible that you can hold at the end of the day and doing it in the most cost effective, time, efficient way.
Speaker 3 (00:33):
Before Pro Shop, we were using Job Boss for a few years, never worked very well for us, and so we are
desperate to find another solution. Once we implemented ProShop, we tripled the number of parts we shipped the next year.
Speaker 4 (00:47):
ProShop has tenfold made all of our lives easier. I think one of the biggest things that all of us enjoy is
the traceability and the accountability of everything. When did it come in? Who ordered it? Is it here? Is it on time? Is it late?
Speaker 1 (00:58):
So just the amount of clerical errors that have been removed from our system are huge and that can be, we made a hundred parts instead of 10 cuz someone hit a zero.
Speaker 2 (01:06):
We recently started a weekend shift. It was huge for us to be able to see right when a job got done, you could watch all the time tracking. It's very handy to be able to just watch all that stuff happen from home and I don't have to be on site anymore.
Speaker 3 (01:19):
ProShop has allowed us to basically unplug our traditional server. Every person in the shop, all the
information they need is stored in the ProShop.
Speaker 1 (01:28):
Cloud. Everyone knows exactly where something's supposed to be. This is a big shop, 17,000 square feet and walking back and forth across it takes time and we don't have to do that anymore.
Speaker 3 (01:37):
We make a point to show all of our customers Pro Shop, they really understand the value of it. When we walk them through how it works and the real time feedback we can give them.
Speaker 1 (01:48):
For our estimating process, pro Shop has completely revolutionized it. What that means is we have
much more accurate and thorough estimates, but we get them done in half the time.
Speaker 3 (01:59):
We trust Pro Shop to help us whenever we have an issue. We trust Pro Shop cuz we know they're always improving so we know that they're in it for the long haul with us.
Speaker 1 (02:10):
In terms of reducing set of time, I bet it's 35%. Our on time delivery has been improved by at least 50%. That's how we delivered almost twice as many parts last year as we did the year before.
Speaker 3 (02:21):
Pro Shop has definitely become the backbone of our business. It's so smooth and intuitive to use that
We leverage it for every process we can in the entire shop.
Speaker 1 (02:32):
The return on investment from Pro Shop is almost incalculable because it's not just money, it's quality of life, it's employee satisfaction, it's client satisfaction. We pride ourselves on having a really good shop with a really good crew and delivering good parts and it's made all of that fun for us. We come here every day and everyone is so happy to be here. And sincerely, a large part of that is because of Pro Shop. It is the best decision we've ever made. My name is Kevin Richards and JDR Fabrication is powered by ProShop.
