JobBOSS JobBOSS

JobBOSS is one of the most popular quoting, planning and manufacturing software systems on the market. This ERP software solution strikes a good balance between technology and practical affordability. JobBOSS is a solid manufacturing software choice for small to mid-sized make-to-order or contract manufacturers because it automates shop processes, is flexible enough to support changes and provides the foundation to manage growth.

This software has deployed three distinct product offerings designed specifically for the job shop market. JobBOSS Starter software (designed for the entry-level buyer) offers the core functionality necessary to quote, manage jobs, receive material cost, track labor, ship and invoice, along with integration to QuickBooks for all manufacturing accounting functions. JobBOSS Professional includes all of the traditional functionality of a shop floor system, including full material control, management of inventory, purchasing, planning and fully integrated shop floor scheduling. JobBOSS Enterprise includes all of the features of JobBOSS Professional and extends the solution to include customer relationship management, automated workflow and quality management.

As of August 2017, Exact JobBOSS along with Exact MAX and Exact Macola were acquired by the APAX Partners to become members of the ECi Solutions family.
