How has Work Force Development Center benefited from E2?

“Prior to 2003, WFDC had only one customer. During that year we started looking for additional customers to help serve a bigger student population and to diversify our work statement to ensure we would be here for years to come. It worked, through a lot of hard work we picked up our second customer.

Now we had a new problem, the current system we were using was only good to track one customer and we needed something new. We evaluated multiple systems over the next couple of months and found that E2 was going to suit our needs. They were very helpful in letting us evaluate their system that was in use with one of their customers.” “E2 has truly helped us grow.

It has helped us manage hundreds of assembly numbers, thousands of inventory items and 80 students and employees. We use one system for all of our needs, from the estimating/quotes to payroll, productivity, time management, the Quality System and HR. Shoptech was also very helpful in creating a specific spreadsheet for one of our customers that saved us hours a day from hand entering data.”
