75% of Top Shops 2017 Award Winners run on JobBOSS

Three of the four winners of Modern Machine Shop's 2017 Top Shops Award run their shop on JobBOSS ERP Shop Management software.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - Tuesday September 5th, 2017 - JobBOSS, a leading provider of ERP software solutions for small and medium-sized manufacturing businesses, congratulates JobBOSS customers Land Sea Air Manufacturing for being recognized as the Top Shops Honors Program winner in the Business Strategies category, MRS Machining for being recognized in the Human Resources category, and XL Machine for being recognized in the Machining Technology category. JobBOSS is proud to support these best-in-class customers and the Top Shops program by sponsoring the inaugural Top Shops Conference taking place September 5-7, 2017, in Indianapolis, IN.

Modern Machine Shop magazine’s “Top Shops” is a comprehensive benchmarking program for machine shops of all types and sizes. Using data from surveys completed by hundreds of machining businesses, Top Shops identifies optimal shop floor practices as well as operational and business metrics that define world-class competitiveness in discrete parts manufacturing. Companies ranging from small job shops to large captive operations can see how they compare against the country’s leading machining businesses, which enables them to make sound decisions to emulate those identified as top-performing operations. Not only does the benchmarking data serve as a baseline “report card” of sorts for them, but it eliminates the need for shop executives to rely on gut feelings as a method of identifying and prioritizing improvement efforts. This year is the seventh edition of the annual survey.

“We are thrilled to receive this recognition as a 2017 Top Shop for our adoption of machining technology in the last couple of years,” said Chris Orlowski, general manager at XL Machine. “XL Machine has been implementing lean manufacturing and continuous improvement practices as well as utilizing JobBOSS ERP software to become more efficient on the shop floor. JobBOSS software has helped us estimate our production costs, and will enable us to implement shopfloor automation very soon.”

Kim Schiller, General Manager at MRS Machining stated: MRS Machining Co, Inc. is honoured to be recognized as a 2017 Top Shop! Our JobBOSS ERP software has been very instrumental in our success and has been our valued software partner for over 20 years!”

Matt Heerey, JobBOSS General Manager adds: "The 2017 Top Shops benchmarking survey responses commonly stress the importance of ERP software as being the most influential technology in contributing to the overall success of their business in recent years. For over 33 years JobBOSS has helped our customers be early adopters of technology, and leaders in the manufacturing sector. We are proud of Land Sea Air Manufacturing, MRS Machining and X-L Machine for being recognized in this year’s Top Shop Awards”.
