Rental Plan Makes Shop Management Software Available to Job Shops
MIDDLETON, Mass.--Exact SoftwareTM, a provider of business and manufacturing management software, has launched a software rental program that allows job shops and contract manufacturers to gain the benefits of Exact JobBOSS technology in exchange for what is said to be a low monthly fee. The company developed the Exact JobBOSS Rental Plan as an option for companies that need the benefits of shop management and control software, but haven't yet justified the cost of purchasing, outright, a full-featured job shop software system.
"Investing in software is a step businesses must take as they develop," said Mitch Alcon, president of Exact Americas, in a statement announcing the program. "This program makes one of the best manufacturing software systems much more accessible to job shops that otherwise may not have been able to justify the investment."
Exact JobBOSS software (www.exactamerica.com) automates several aspects of managing a job shop, including job costing, work cell scheduling, job estimating, and shop floor control. It is said to provide a strong foundation for shop floor management with a single, integrated environment that gives companies complete visibility, access, management, and control--from creating a quote to reviewing final costs. JobBOSS is used by companies ranging from machine shops to fabricators, spring shops, and stampers, among others.
The rental model reduces investment risk for job shops and make-to-order manufacturers by shifting costs from capital expenditure to operational budget. It also reduces start-up costs because the cost of owning the system is spread out over the contract period. A low, up-front investment allows for "nearly immediate return on investment," according to the company.
Exact's monthly rental fee includes software, training, technical support, and all software upgrades. The company offers contract terms ranging from 2 to 5 years with the option to renew upon expiration.
