ProShop was recently featured in Manufacturing News for establishing its second location in Bellingham, WA. The article explains how ProShop USA is a subsidiary of Adion Systems, designed to facilitate sales and support of the ProShop software. ProShop software provides a comprehensive set of modules for managing a shop’s ERP, MES and QMS. Paul Van Metre, co-founder of Adion systems and President of ProShop USA stated “ProShop software represents a Digital Manufacturing Ecosystem, or ERP 4.0. It enables smaller shops to easily manage their business with big data, manufacturing analytics approach, including shop floor monitoring of part quality inspection, work instructions and tool management.” Van Metre goes on to say that most conventional ERP systems are accounting based with minimal functionality for managing and controlling the shop floor environment. ProShop differentiates itself by including MES and QMS control, and monitoring and collection capabilities. The MES function tracking machine usage, cutting tool management, work instructions, part inspection, data and more. QMS functions include all the modules needed to manage a company’s ISO 9000, AS9100 API and ISO 13485 certifications, answering all the tasks required to comply with a work site’s different quality systems. Van Metre wraps up the article by adding “Implementation of ProShop enables more informed and conscious choices surrounding all business decisions.”
