As a job shop, you’re under constant pressure to grow margins, so getting your job costs right is mission critical. Unlike other manufacturers, job shops need to manage tooling and materials on a project-by-project basis, which can create cash flow challenges.
SYSPRO Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software empowers job shop operators to manage the challenges like these inherent in the custom-design and order-fulfillment process. With an end-to-end software platform built to meet job shop needs, you can easily connect your operations from product design through production to finance and accounting, gaining remarkable efficiencies.
SYSPRO’s advanced planning tools factor in the full mix of jobs in your schedule, the materials they use, the utilization of each item, scrap, rejects and purchasing of lot sizes, as well as supplier lead times, balancing your supply requirements with your demand.
Spreadsheets just can’t handle this kind of complexity – and manual processes are just too inefficient. Find out how SYSPRO helps job shop manufacturers:
- Improve customer collaboration and service
- Ensure quality and on-time delivery
- Create more accurate job costing and pricing estimates
