Battelle Replaces ERP Software with the E2 Shop Management System

Share Article

Battelle switched from an ERP Software System to a Manufacturing Software System called the E2 Shop System from Shoptech Software. Changing ERP software was easier than expected since Shoptech was able to convert Battelle’s data from their old ERP Software System.

Battelle machine shop was having major problems with its ERP Software. The system was constantly crashing, databases were getting corrupt and the shop floor information was unreliable. “The data collection system was not totally integrated into the rest of the system”, stated Bruce Mosgrove, General Manager of the machine shop. “When we received a call from someone looking for a job, the information was always a day late. Every time we called the ERP vendor for support, they would take days to respond and they frankly were not very helpful. We were in desperate need of shop management software, ERP software or manufacturing software that we could count on.”

Switching ERP software was easier than expected.

Through the Internet Bruce found a manufacturing software company located just down the road in Cincinnati, Ohio by the name of Shoptech Software. Shoptech was much closer than the ERP vendor in Minneapolis. Shoptech was able to convert Battelle’s data from their old system. This data conversion saved time up front and allowed Battelle to hit the ground running on their new ERP Software System. Shoptech’s account management team was also instrumental in getting Battelle up and running in a mere 6 weeks. This transition was much smoother than Bruce had expected.

Total Integration with the E2 Shop Management System

Today, Battelle’s captive machine shop is fully utilizing the E2 Shop Management System from Estimating through collecting data on the shop floor in real time. The tight integration of the E2 Shop Management System has allowed Battelle to get information real time to make better business decisions in a timely fashion. No double entry is required and the data integrity of the manufacturing software system of E2 is a refreshing change from the past system. Since the E2 Shop Management Software was developed 100% in house by Shoptech Software, everything is in one database so there is no type of batch processing between modules. Battelle’s successful transformation from one ERP software system to another manufacturing software system is a lesson for shops looking to move off of “modular systems” into one integrated system. And with Shoptech’s ability to transfer data from older systems, shops don’t have to worry about keying in all of their old data.
