The MetalShopSys is a powerful, real-time multi-user manufacturing operations tracking and scheduling system designed specifically for the sheet metal processing environment.

Graphical intuitive as well as user-friendly interface, similar to paper work, make the MetalShopSys very easy to learn and use. It uses Microsoft Access as a platform. Since the program data is completely contained in a MS Access database, it interfaces well with other software. The program can be easily customized to fit your specific business requirements.

The MetalShopSys is expandable, flexible and provides the perfect low cost solutions for small to mid size engineering and manufacturing companies.

MS Access is perfect for growing businesses that do not want to spend thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars for programs that are not flexible, and are not truly geared to their operations.

Using Microsoft Access and Visual Basic for Applications as a front-end database system means that you have full control and flexibility. The MetalShopSys program integrates easily with other software. Create new forms and reports, as you need them. Expand your operations system anyway you choose.
