    That makes sense. What quoting program do you have? We're thinking of doing the same, I'd love to get a referral if you know someone who can do this.

    When a customer calls up and asks for the C of C I have to look around a bit to find them the answer.
    Good answer! If you don't mind, if I am understanding correctly, you're interested in WIP tracking (typically accomplished by scanning). If the orders travel through the shop so quickly, why do you need to track them? Don't let the sales guy sell you something you don't really need. Any WIP tracking station is just another "license" for them so that's what they're trying to sell you.

    We built a custom MS Access database in-house probably 20 years ago. Our bookkeeper taught herself Access DB development and created it. Unfortunately, she has not maintained that skill set and lost the knowledge in the meantime. That's why we're out looking for a vendor to help.

    They're currently investigating further to confirm they can get the two programs talking to each other and will give me a quote if they can complete the project. If they can, I'd be happy to provide their contact info.

    I'm a full time s/w developer, but have been doing IT work for a shop for 15 years. I've written a bunch of apps that interworks with E2. Most recently we have implemented Trello to track jobs in the shop. Job and parts are automatically created in Trello. I've just started to look for work that leverages my understanding of the E2 database. It's a bear.
