Powerful and Affordable, VISUAL Jobshop has a List of Satisfied Customers that Keeps Growing and Growing
21 November 2002, Hampton, NH (USA) —In an economy where the technology and manufacturing industries have been struggling against reduced business, Lilly Software Associates’ solution for small manufacturers, VISUAL Jobshop, has been experiencing substantial growth. Lilly initially released the product early in 2001, and Jobshop sales have steadily increased worldwide, over 300% since October of last year. With customers currently in twelve countries, including the United States, Canada, South Africa, Australia, Taiwan, and Mexico, Lilly expects sales to remain strong as it announces its latest release, VISUAL Jobshop version 3.5.
The newest Jobshop release offers tighter integration with QuickBooks® Pro, Premier and Enterprise small business financial software and coincides with the release of QuickBooks Pro 2003. In addition to integrating Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, and General Ledger information with VISUAL Jobshop version 3.5, QuickBooks users can now automatically populate Jobshop’s database with existing customers, vendors, and inventory items from their QuickBooks company file. This enables users to get up to speed quickly when implementing their Lilly Software solution.
“VISUAL Jobshop is a perfect fit for companies that want to combine the ease-of-use of QuickBooks with effective manufacturing capabilities to successfully manage their shop floor,” says Sam Pollard, Manager of Lilly Software’s Small Manufacturing Division. “Earlier this year, we released the enhanced Premium edition of VISUAL Jobshop, which offered increased data integration with QuickBooks Pro 2002 and QuickBooks Premier 2002. This new release reaffirms our commitment to delivering the best available tools and technology to our customers.”
VISUAL Jobshop® is an affordable software solution for small manufacturers that want to gain a competitive advantage in the short term, while migrating toward a more comprehensive ERP and supply chain product, VISUAL Enterprise™, in the future. It provides tools that businesses need to simplify their quoting, order entry, inventory control, production, labor tracking, shipping, and invoicing.
Companies respond positively to the software’s user-friendly Windows features, customizable reports, graphical user interface, and easy implementation. Jobshop is also available in Spanish, which has helped Lilly Software deliver a strong competitive advantage to its Latin American customers and helped expand its sales around the globe. Customers continuously praise VISUAL Jobshop, calling the solution “scalable,” “intuitive,” “making impossible scheduling tasks possible,” and they consistently refer to Lilly’s service and support as “first rate.”
“When small manufacturers finally discover VISUAL Jobshop, they become very excited as they realize they’ve found the perfect solution to fit their needs,” says Pollard. “In today’s market, companies are looking to invest in tools that will help them improve their businesses with a fast turnaround for results and the potential for long-term growth. They are searching for software to help them streamline their business processes and offer more control over their shop floor. With version 3.5, we are going to continue to win more customers and help manufacturers succeed.”
VISUAL Jobshop version 3.5 is available now from Lilly Software Associates.
