Seamless integration now available between Hypertherm ProNest and Shoptech E2 software
Job shops and manufacturers using Shoptech’s E2 software can now enjoy seamless integration with Hypertherm’s ProNest CAD/CAM nesting software thanks to a new partnership between the two companies.
The integration between ProNest and Shoptech’s E2 Shop System product is designed to help job shops and manufacturers eliminate manual and redundant tasks that exist in the workflow. Job personnel can more easily track jobs and manage inventory leading to a more efficient—and profitable—operation. For example, if additional steel plate is needed for a job, ProNest and E2 can work together to automatically allocate plate from available inventory, add to a purchase order, and return remaining remnants to inventory.
“As the industry’s leading nesting software for two decades, ProNest offers best-in-class performance and reliability with a straight-forward, easy-to-use design,” said Derek Weston, product marketing manager for Hypertherm CAD/CAM software products. “In partnering with Shoptech, owners of E2 software can now enjoy improved productivity by eliminating redundant work and streamlining their overall operations.”
Established in 1984, Shoptech Software is a leading provider of shop management software for job shops and make to order manufacturers. In addition, the company is consistently ranked one of the fastest growing companies in the United States by Inc. Magazine.
