Time targets are the key to driving shop floor behavior. Make sure shop workers are motivated to hit achievable, competitive targets and constantly improve upon them. ProShop has a variety of time targets that can be defined for operational steps to help manufacturers establish a realistic schedule, while providing flexible options for quoting customers at the same time!

Rapid Quoting

Following an estimate, ProShop automatically generates quotes with one click. Users have the option to display non-recurring costs as NRE charges as a single line item, or to build the NRE charges into the unit price of the products on the quote. Simple!

Default terms and conditions are automatically applied to new quotes and can be configured individually if necessary. ProShop is all about reducing repetitive manual work so that you can be as efficient as possible.

Customer PO’s

Once you win that new order with your great new quotes from ProShop, you can quickly launch a customer PO. Track customer requirements like FAIR’s, delivery dates, and pricing. Automatically launch new work orders for each line item. Make sure everyone is on the same page with the current status of a PO through ProShop’s paperless work environment.

Customer Profiles

ProShop lets you track all of your customer information including locations, contact info and roles, quality and process requirements, preferences, order history, and much more. ProShop will make sure each of your customers feel like they are your favorite customer!
