Exact JobBOSS provides of ERP software solutions for small and medium-sized manufacturing businesses. The company extends congratulations to JobBOSS customers Land Sea Air Manufacturing for being the Top Shops Honors Program winner this year 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, Indiana.

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.

Thoughts from some of the Top Shops winners:

Chris Orlowski, general manager at XL Machine, says, “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, says, “MRS Machining Co., Inc. is honored 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.”
