The Job Shop
Job Shops can range from specialty construction, specialty manufacturing to maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO). They all have one thing in common; custom work based on a customer’s needs. Clients First understands the Job Shop and needs ERP or business software to be flexible and work the way each job shop operates.
The Job Shop includes Make-to-Order (MTO) and Engineer-to-Order Manufacturing (ETO) which requires meeting the diverse needs of clients quickly and efficiently, thus, demanding an equally proficient solution. In order to effectively manage these operations, ETO/MTO organizations need a production scheduling system that can manage unique job requirements, inventory control and visibility. Each product is made and engineered according to demand, making every step in the process critical for ensuring that resources are not wasted.
Quoting, Estimating and even Configuration – not all job shops quote, but most do and use spreadsheets. These spreadsheets are the core of the business. Why not use a true database with job history, inventory, labor costs, customer preferences, etc,? Clients First is adept at using core ERP software to accommodate estimating, configurations, and quoting with customer history. The Job Shop that can see how much they made or profited by job, by customer is key to success.
Job Shop ERP Solutions are key if implemented by an experienced team like Clients First.

“Who you pick will make or break your implementation, they have got to know the program inside and out and have business sense, this is what you get with Clients First. We challenged them, pushing them to implement the latest Acumatica version and didn’t charge me for learning on my dime and that was fantastic. We made them better and they made us better which makes for a really nice partnership.”
