I've been seriously considering Digifabster as of late. It's an all in one CRM, ERP and accounting software tailored for additive and subtractive technologies you would find in a model shop. The live demo i had looked very promising with tons of customizability. There's also alot of benefits and features for the customer as well such as instant pricing, part analyzation, etc.

Now i just need to determine if the value added outweighs the annual cost!

Also using JIRA. We've tailored it over the years, working with our primary JIRA software wranglers. It's not perfect, but since the rest of the organization is using it, we make do for the sake of consistency.

Hi Guys

We use ETQ Reliance, this is an older version we had done in 2017, but I find it works well for our internal Modelshop requests. It is also used by our quality team to manage our suppliers.

I get all sorts of prototype requests from across the business, including 3D prints, CNC, steel fabrication, fabric upholstery and simple things like booking product into stock/warehouse.

I don't get involved in the software management/development side of it but I think it can be tailor made to fit your business, we have licenses for use to use it internally, but then we simply give restricted access to the people we want, a bit like if your names not down you're not coming in! hope that helps?

I to would be interested in what others are using. All of our "customers" are employees within our parent company which is over 100k people. We currently use a homebrewed mix of an Excel template and MS Access to track customer requests that come into my shop.

I'm looking for a solution that doesn't require the customer to have a license or anything special on their end to submit a job request (3D printing, CNC, painting, casting, etc.), but on our side we have a way of managing those requests and tracking costs, time, etc. against them.

Wanted to reach out to the wide network of the APMM members and ask what kinds of Work/Project management software's are being used. We have been using Jira for the last couple of years and like the visibility is gives to entire internal staff but it was originally made for debugging software not shop activities so we have work arounds. Anyone willing to share the name of software they are using with pros or cons would be appreciated.
