“JobPack is already saving us time and money after only 6 months of use”

ProsJobPack 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.
ConsThe 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 buyersYou 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 ? ".

“Must have to see future schedule and ”

OverallFirst 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!!!
ProsIntuitive, Accurate, Easy to use, Customer Support
ConsData dictionary is mostly in German with some English translation and can be hard to map variables when creating reports.
Recommendations to other buyersIf 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.

“Review of Jobpack scheduler”

OverallThe 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.
ProsThe scheduling system is highly configurable and also capable of customization if the customer has that need.
ConsThis 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 buyersIf you follow JobPack's recommendations for implementing this system you will get the results that you expect and the benefit to your business.

“After 2 months of use”

OverallWe installed Jobpack 2 month ago and it has smoothed out our delivery issues. We now have visability of work on the shop floor and can see when it starts to go late before the due date so we can take action to remedy the issues
ProsIts fast and easy to use for someone who knows what they are doing and what they want. The shop floor data collection offers document viewing and real time status of work in progress The graphical planning board is easy for everyone to understand including sales reps who need to know when their customers work will be complete. The mobile data collection app is great for field service or assy staff to see what their next job is and clock in and out for recording times
ConsEditing time clocks seems a bit clunky if shop operators make mistakes.

“Very good visual scheduler.”

OverallWhat-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.
ProsWhat-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.
ConsData 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 buyersIf you are looking for a very good visual scheduling software, I would definitely recommend this software.
