Avtech Engineering – Steve Delfos (Owner) Western Australia
Avtech has been in the precision manufacturing business since 1979, specialising in machining precision components for a diverse range of industries. We continually invest in leading edge technologies, and Job Commander’s quote to invoice solution has replaced our manually driven office systems, providing greater control of our business from many different aspects. Real time reporting of labour hours on jobs has enabled us to manage remotely with the use of a Smartphone, as well as providing live data to our staff from their own terminals within the building. It’s so convenient. We love the data storage capability – each job can have drawings attached as pdf files and Material Data sheets. Our recent quality audit was reduced from 4 hours to two, because the system can demonstrate complete traceability via the job number. And the system has paid for itself with a reduction in our staff costs – it has saved us two days per week of administration. And the Support is excellent; Job Commander’s knowledgeable team provides us with prompt, reliable service every time. We export financials to the Sage accounting system, which is easy to do and saves us time.

“Job Commander is so simple to use – you can do so much with a click of a button. The support team is very responsive and knowledgeable; we use both telephone and email support and our queries are answered very efficiently. Job Commander enables us to provide reliable quotes to our customers. It is helpful to be able to look up previously completed jobs and compare. We like the weekly and monthly reports. We can evaluate efficiency levels on jobs, and to compare the value of stock month to month to track increases or decreases, and much more. JC has enhanced our customer relationships – through the Workshop Management module we can instantly look up a job and provide the customer with a progress update or ETA. Our employees have been more empowered with Job Commander; we’ve noticed they are taking more ownership of their work too”
Hi Precision Engineering – Neil Rankine (Owner), Western Australia
Job Commander is simple to use. We like simple! The jobs history is really helpful to us when quoting similar jobs. The timekeeping is brilliant, and we can look up the real time hours on a job at any time. The other thing it’s good for is quoting; you can break down quotes into simple parts, and then compile a total quote. The support is really good, and I say that being surprised because many others aren’t very good; most times Job Commander’s support team solves the problem on the spot otherwise they call back within a few hours. It’s by far the best system we’ve used.”

“Initially I was attracted to the Job Commander system as a job preparation and workshop scheduling tool and it has proved to be most useful on a day to day basis in the control and scheduling of our workshop. Its ability to automatically capture critical job data including work centre, labour costs and job profit means that we have the perfect referral system when approaching repeat jobs. We can call up the history of every customer and job from our database which saves generation of new paperwork. Job Commander helps us make better business decisions.”
Vale Steel – Tom (Manager), Western Australia
Job Commander suits our industry! Job Commander is good value for money; there are a lot of job costing programs around and you pay a lot more for them, but Job Commander gives you everything you need – it does everything you want it to do. We like the reports including the Employee Hours report which we use to enter values for payroll in MYOB. Originally we were using manual handwritten sheets and a calculator, Job Commander has given us accuracy and confidence in our calculations. We started with the Quoting module and soon found it so easy to use for generating Purchase Orders for materials, through to Invoicing and Delivery Dockets – it follows the whole job from start to finish”.
Precimax Tooling Pty Ltd – Peter Brown (Owner), South Australia
“Job Commander has been the perfect management tool for our manufacturing business. This software system allows me to have total control of my business. At any point in time I can access any previous job with any active job allocated in the shop and make comparisons. Allocation of job numbers allows me to track every job from time of quotation to final invoicing ensuring I have traceability even when the shop is extremely busy. This fully integrated system captures every job at every point in time which is essential for tracking costs and profitability.”
Nylastex Tooling Pty Ltd – W. Philips (Owner Director), South Australia
“The majority of our business is the manufacture of unique plastic injection moulds which require specific job information costing per customer. Job Commander has suited our daily need to track job costing hour by hour per customer. We can post costs to each job and the system automatically collects data such as machine time, labour costs and job profit. Job Commander also integrates with MYOB making it the ideal tracking system for our business.”
Luss Precision and General Engineering Pty Ltd – Paul Joyce (Managing Director), Victoria
“We started looking for software that could improve efficiency in our office management about 3 years ago and as a result started using Job Commander for control of our quoting process, job costing and office reports. Luss Engineering is no longer human dependent in tracking job status, allocation of job hours and labour costs but instead has the reliability of the system to centralise current job information. It is also enormous value in being able to refer to customer job history. I use the reporting feature regularly to provide relevant information critical to our success. Moving from a small engineering company to a medium size, has meant that Job Commander has allows us to grow without any problems and has also meant we have grown into Job Commander and it being a front line tool for our daily running of my business”.
Advanced Metal Turning – Joel Vacher (Workshop Foreman), Queensland
“We have been using Job Commander in our business for the last 7 years and have found it to be an excellent program. Global Job Solutions continue to work closely with us in developing a system that is useful for our small manufacturing business. The job scheduling feature enables me to know the progress of any job within the shop and creation of a number system has proved to be critical for our daily operation. Each of our operators has a PC at their machine meaning that they too have the benefit of logging in to captured data and see the jobs that are coming up rather than printing out paperwork. The graphs and information generated by the Job Commander provide an essential advantage in monitoring profit and loss of each job. We couldn’t do without Job Commander now!”
All-Go Engineering – Phil Vergone (MD), Western Australia
“Our experience with Job Commander is that is a very simple to use system that makes locating job information easy. It is a flexible system that caters for all aspects of production management. Each employee enters information specific to their job centre and Job Commander then carries job information forward from each stage without having to re enter data. This saves time and therefore money. All-Go Engineering use Job Commander for everything!”
Total CAM Solutions – Jessy Austin (Administration Officer), Western Australia
“Job Commander has proved to be an affordable management tool that has made my job of running a machining workshop easier. It has been brilliant as far as freeing up a lot of time that was spent managing a manual system. The key features of being able to produce quotations for individual customers, generation of job sheets, assignment of job information and ongoing tracking of jobs in the system is the ideal software system for our workshop management. The ability to retain the full job history of customers makes for a great reference system when quoting future jobs. Job Commander is simple to use and keeps the workshop running smoothly.”
JBO Engineering Pty Ltd – Jeff Owen (Owner), Victoria
“We have been using Job Commander for the last 7 years and it has satisfied our need to be more accountable with our time. The system allows us to track time spent on actual jobs and to hone in on where we are losing time meaning that we can improve our pricing and profitability. Quoting, job card preparation, production planning and delivery are easily compiled and tracked throughout the entire process. Access to customer history records allows us to find things quickly in the system. Job Commander gives me better control over the businesses finances.”
