Total ETO | Overview


Summary:

Total ETO is an ERP solution exclusively for Engineer to Order manufacturers.  Previously known as Questica ETO, it was developed in collaboration with a group of engineer to order manufacturers for the sole purpose of serving engineer-to-order manufacturers.  Because the application complements the ETO process so well, training and implementation is intuitive, quick and simple. 

Total ETO covers everything from Sales to Delivery, even supporting warranties and downstream parts fulfillment. Each Project\Job can have a deeply nested dynamic BOM.  Add-ins for SolidWorks and Inventor provide smooth 2-way integration that eliminates duplicate entries.  BOMs from any CAD system (including EPLAN, AutoCAD Electrical, CATIA, Creo, or Solid Edge) can also be imported easily.  A unique hold and release feature gives unparalleled control and communication between your engineering and purchasing departments, allowing you to release parts, sub-assemblies or entire BOMswithjust a click.  Total ETO determines items you’ve already procured and lets you know what you still need.

The stress of Change Orders is eliminated with Total ETO. Buyers can immediately identify over-procured parts and materials so they can be cancelled before delivery, returned, or redirected to other projects.  Fabrications can be tracked at any stage, whether they are being manufactured in-house, outsourced, or in combination.  You will have full visibility into the procurement and delivery of all parts/materials across all projects, no matter the number of frequency of change orders.   

Expediting is so efficient and quick that time will be freed up for staying on top of vendors, and negotiating better agreements.  Spares and Parts Orders are easy and don’t require Engineering to lookup previous jobs and BOMs.  

Total ETO handles difficult daily financial tasks with ease.  It can integrateAR, AP and Payroll data from industry proven accounting solutions such as QuickBooks or Sage, allowing you to continue using financial systems you are familiar with.  You no longer have to settle for using your ERP supplied accounting system.  With Total ETO’s 200+ built in reports you can perform data analytics by slicing and dicing data any way you choose, including preliminary BOM estimates and Real Time committed Job Costing.

Streamlining the collection and tracking of labor costs is critical, and with Total ETO, users can log their own time, administrators can key it in or import it, or Total ETO can be integrated with any Time and Attendance system.

For over 20 years, Total ETO has been helping ETO manufacturers increase efficiency, eliminate duplicate entry, reduce clerical work, scale effectively, deliver faster, reduce costs and maximize profitability.
