Shoptech Software was incorporated 1984 and recently acquired by ECI Software Solutions in 2020. Their flagship product, JobBOSS² (formerly E2 Shop System), was developed in a job shop in Cincinnati, Ohio. The company founders, Rich and Greg Ehemann – the two Es of the E2 products – grew up in a shop. While working there, they realized that an essential component of a make-to-order manufacturer’s success is the ability to determine if they are making or losing money on a job by job basis. Determining profitability based on accounting at the end of the month was not enough to develop a strong strategy for business growth. They also experienced first-hand the need to better coordinate the other facets of running a job shop: estimating, scheduling, collecting time from the shop floor, purchasing, shipping, and even accounting.
