Shop Owner & CEO

You give it all you can, but sometimes that’s not enough. If those materials don’t show up on your dock by midday, you may be paying someone a visit, either a supplier or a customer. In the meantime, you have to think about revenue, expenses, and keeping the productivity burners on high.

JobBOSS is an end-to-end ERP that makes it easy to manage your entire business operations in a single solution. Because every part of your business is linked together, you can gain insight and real-time visibility that will enable you to make informed decisions about your future quickly.

Shop Floor Manager


Shop Floor Manager

As the Floor Manager, your challenge is to keep jobs moving no matter what. You need to schedule new work and maximize jobs already in process. Managing equipment and inside operations, and keeping material organized and on hand for the job, are your priorities.

JobBOSS captures accurate costs, integrates with CNC work centers, and ensures faster throughput and higher productivity. You need an easy way to recognize and fix shopfloor problems—JobBOSS dashboards provide it.

You manage the bottom line. You work to improve operational results and reverse financial declines. Current costing figures, reports, and analysis from the front and back office and the shop floor take time to collect and analyze. Negotiating reductions from suppliers is not easy.

JobBOSS scheduling ties into purchasing. See and analyze your on-time deliveries, then work towards getting your vendors on just-in-time purchasing. JobBOSS saves time by providing visibility both on the shop floor and into the purchasing process overall. It gives you the real-time data and financial indicators necessary to negotiate the best pricing.

You oversee accounting, and drilling into financials and reporting is vital. If something doesn’t look right, you drill down into it to see what happened. If you noticed a job was unprofitable, you use data to find out what went wrong and how to fix it.

Reports from a variety of modules flow into one source—your computer—and make it easy to watch for problems among a small or large workforce. The system provides high-level overviews and up-close detail if needed. With Completed Job Cost reports, for example, you can drill into the data and see where the real variance between estimated and actual costs occurred. Dashboards bring you the numbers, as well. No need to run 50 reports to get answers; one dashboard summarizes it all.
