Tool & Mold Shop

Tooling & Mold Shop Software

Challenges you face

You survived the ’08 shake out for a reason. You know how to compete with overseas sources and remaining US competition. A key strategy is to maximize technology. As a tooling or mold shop, you need extra flexibility with shop management—from quoting through costing. You watch percent complete and add unscheduled operations and materials on the fly. Labor and material costing have never been more important. JobBOSS shop management software provides the deep functionality and flexibility a mold or toolmaker requires more than most shops.

With JobBOSS you may want to copy from a similar mold to a new quote or job, then make changes easily for the new mold. You can control a job at the top level or at a more detailed component level. JobBOSS real time tracking costs your jobs using actual labor rates plus overhead, for accurate in-process and completed job costing. The system includes material actual costs and any outside process costs. JobBOSS increases throughput and leverages labor input. It puts technology at your back.
