A reduction in work-center downtime: ProShop improves scheduling, setups and planned maintenance. Your equipment spends less time idle and allows more available capacity to be sold.
An increase in overall shop velocity: Getting jobs through the shop faster allows for higher sales as a result. Less time spent per job keeps you on target to meet customer demands and take on more work.
Less paperwork to fill out: Our paperless system involves fewer time-consuming manual processes. That means more time doing value-added work and strategic tasks instead.
Added confidence and capability: ProShop's powerful planning tools give shops the confidence and ability to take on more complex projects with multi-level assemblies and multiple outside processes rather than just component parts. These jobs are higher-priced and more lucrative with less competition and higher margins.
Making dramatic increases in efficiency: We've included a full suite of modules for improving office operations, including planning, order entry, purchasing, project management, expeditors and more. Get more work through the same staff.
Transitioning overhead staff into direct labor: ProShop use allows you to now-redundant overhead employees to more direct labor roles to increase throughput and revenue.
Providing paperless/visual work instructions: Job setups go faster with centralized, shared resources. That speed means meeting or beating targets more often.
Supporting documented training: ProShop contains a training module that makes tracking and assigning qualified personnel easier. With complete visibility, a wider range of employees can successfully set up jobs, reducing machine downtime and waiting time.
Including robust machining modules: We've built ProShop with industry-specialized tools other ERPs and legacy systems lack. Features like our cutting tool management specifically reduce the setup time of machining operations.
Integrating custom workflow checklists: Built-in tools to ensure that all preparatory work is completed before jobs hit the machines. Customizable process checklists result in dramatic reductions in setup time and downtime between jobs.
Providing quality management tools: In-line inspection capabilities allow shop personnel to monitor production quality and make rapid adjustments to meet standards and customer expectations. As a result, you reduce quality problems and fix issues much more quickly, reducing scrap, rework and remakes.
Creating documentation packages automatically: ProShop contains unique features that lessen manual documentation with information exchanged between modules. Automation of generating quality paperwork dramatically reduces the labor time involved with inspection and document package creation.
Improved visibility of jobs won, purchasing demand and tools to consolidate purchasing activity. These result in more strategic purchasing and lower unit costs with volume discounts.
Much better visibility and forecasting of tools, gauges and materials. You'll reduce the need to expedite items at the last minute.
Better oversight of required shipping dates to outside processes and visibility of the schedule. Together, these factors reduce expediting fees for outside processes.
