JobBoss Software Testimonial

Paul Schurman Machine in Washington state is a small but versatile job shop known for offering good value on challenging jobs. Their specialty is complete machinery repair. The company’s full service machine shop uses the latest CNC machining and turning technology on jobs ranging from close tolerance components to large machined assemblies. They also do fabrication of heavy industrial equipment, specialty machines, and shaft assemblies.

In 1998, when Matt Houghton took over as general manager at Paul Schurman Machine in Ridgefield, WA, he sought out manufacturing software that would best fit a job shop. “After comparing systems, the best overall fit was JobBOSS,” says Houghton.  “For me, it’s the thoroughness and flexibility of the system-to know I can take a job from start to finish and it will be complete. If it’s a repeat job, I can pull it from templates, which makes it very simple.”

This 20-person shop specializes in repair of large equipment and excels at large fabrication and machining– 60% paper mill-related. With hundreds of complex jobs open at once, Houghton values the system’s integration. As owner as well as general manager, he likes the range and depth of JobBOSS reports. “We’re a small company yet we use so many of the reports,” he says. “I use the Foreman’s Report every day, all the GL (General Ledger) and AR (Accounts Receivable) reports.  I can plan cash flow each week using the various reports.”

Continuous learning has also been key to their success. At some companies, Houghton says employees are thrown into using software without adequate training. “Employees need training and discussion. They need to go to JobBOSS conferences, look at the JobBOSS web site, look at the upgrades. You get what you put into it,” says Houghton.

With the improving economy, JobBOSS is making a big difference at Paul Schurman Machine. Houghton says, “JobBOSS has grown on the employees who use it in our shop, and they wouldn’t know what to do without it. It is now truly a “a part of our shop…  As for benefits, efficiency has gone up. So has our ability to see real time where we’re at.  Last year was very good. This year is going to be incredible.”
