Company History

Shoptech Software has been incorporated since 1984.  Their flagship product, the E2 Shop System actually was developed in a job shop in Cincinnati, Ohio.  The company founders, Rich and Greg Ehemann – and the two Es – of the E2 Shop System, grew up in the shop.  While working in the shop, they realized the most important foundation of a make to order manufacturer is to determine if you are making or losing money on a job by job basis.  Determining profitability based on accounting at the end of the month doesn’t help develop a true strategy to grow a business.  They also experienced firsthand the need to better coordinate most of the other facets of running a job shop: estimating, scheduling, collecting time from the shop floor, purchasing, shipping, and even accounting.

Out of their experience with shops and their passion for computers, came a software product and a company that was built from the ground up, a real American success story.  Their passion is still evident today as the E2 Shop System continues to be the most comprehensive ERP package on the market today, and while building Shoptech Software into a company that now has thousands of customers and 5 offices across North America.

Along the way, Shoptech has forged strategic alliances with business partners, garnered recognition in business and shop trade magazines, and gained a reputation as consistently being on the forefront of technological innovations to best serve the many job shop markets. We’re truly the authority on shop floor control.

The executive team and the founding partners of the E2 Shop System take great pride in the company’s roots in the job shop industry. Said one customer, “They’ve still got chips in the shoes,” from the days of running machines. The company has never lost its vision of helping job shops run more smoothly, more productively, more profitably.

As Shoptech approaches a quarter century of servicing job shops and make-to-order manufacturers, customer needs still drive the success and continued growth of the company. All research and development, training, service and support is focused on how to best serve job shops large and small. Our specialization and commitment to building our business and yours with high quality people, products and service are testament to our ongoing goal of strengthening our reputation as North America’s leading provider of shop management systems.

Ask our customers. They’ll tell you. We walk the walk, and we’ve got the chips in our shoes to prove it.
