Comments: Before we used JobPack, we were still manually opening and tracking jobs. As can be imagined, this was an immense headache as we continued to grow. JobPack has allowed us to plan our schedule so that it works for us instead of the other way around. They have always been helpful if we have any problems.

Pros: Ease of use, customer service.

Very good visual scheduler.

Comments: What-if capability is what makes this software shine. Being able to see impact good or bad immediately is a great feature. Making changes to capacity on the fly also very good. Data collection can be time-consuming. Overall a very good software.

Pros: What-if capability, setup of work orders, visual scheduling board, being able to quickly drill down to find a root cause of why the project is running behind.

Cons: Data collection very time-consuming to make corrections, not able to collect man and machine time for employees working on multiple machines, spend a lot of time closing and opening system when changes are made, a lot of time spent with programming on the creation and changing of reports.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are looking for a very good visual scheduling software, I would definitely recommend this software.

Comments: The JobPack scheduling system is a highly configurable tool that allows the user complete flexibility in configuring the system to match the customers business model. The effort required to configure the system is worth the work when the time comes to utilize this system. This scheduling tool will provide a very accurate picture of work flow in the customers facility and prevent unnecessary guessing when planning work out in the future.

Pros: The scheduling system is highly configurable and also capable of customization if the customer has that need.

Cons: This tool requires that the customer follow a process oriented method when using this system for production and this does require both scheduling and production employee's to change from old habits.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you follow JobPack's recommendations for implementing this system you will get the results that you expect and the benefit to your business.

Comments: First off, the JobPack group are very easy to work with. They are very attentive, and actually listen to what you are needing. The software itself is very intuitive and the schedule is very easy to view and change right out of the box, but the enhancements that JobPack developers have and can make has really set them apart from others I have looked at. The drag and drop feature is top notch. We went from knowing what the next week looked like, (and then guessing past that), to being able to see out as far as a year very accurately. Yes there will be some emergencies and jobs that get thrown in as a priority, but that is also where the software shines. Once you put your new job in, then schedule it, it will even show you what jobs will be pushed out and how much it pushed them out. HUGE!!!

Pros: Intuitive, Accurate, Easy to use, Customer Support

Cons: Data dictionary is mostly in German with some English translation and can be hard to map variables when creating reports.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are struggling with not knowing what your future schedule looks like, having a hard time quoting work due to not seeing machine loads, or do not have a good scheduling board to see real time shop load, this software will greatly improve your life.

Pros: JobPack is very easy to use and implement. You don't realize how valuable a scheduling software tool is until you get it in place and up and running. The ability for us to visualize our jobs on the shop floor, as well as know what jobs are on-time, early, or going to be late, is incredible. JobPack has been there for us every step of the way. Their support is incredible. They answer the phone when you call and are eager to help you. They are always very prompt in replying to e-mails (sometimes within just a minute or two after sending it). It is a great feeling know they will be there for us when we need them.

Cons: The only thing I can think of is I wish they were located on the West Coast instead of the Midwest so I can take Pete and his team out to dinner to thank them for their support and help.

Recommendations to other buyers: You have to be willing to commit the time and energy to get it done right. If you are only going to dedicate 10 or 20 percent of your time in implementing JobPack, then you are not going to succeed. You need to realize that you need JobPack, and work your very best to get your company up and running with it, which is easy with all the support and tools JobPack provides. Once you are up and running, it will be smooth sailing from that point forward and you will always think to yourself, "How did my business survive without JobPack ? ".

Pros: I like the visibility of production going through its operations and also the visibility of the shop floor equipment. Also, the product is versatile and can be customized to meet the company's needs, along with integration with other MRP/ERP software.

Cons: Speed is one area where I feel the product could improve. It takes a little time to recalculate after each move. When making multiple moves, it will align the delivery dates in reverse order on the schedule board. I understand the logic given behind why it happens, but the outcome is still wrong.

Recommendations to other buyers: Check out the different things JobPack offers to see what fits your company's needs.
