About Solid Industries
For nearly 20 years, Solid Industries in Calgary has served the machining needs for area companies in a
wide range of industries. Many of the shop’s customers are in Alberta’s booming oil and gas industry. However, in recent years, Solid Industries has expanded into farming, aerospace, and more.
Several years ago, the shop’s leadership team realized that the business had grown too large to continue with the same processes they had always used. Most of their processes were managed either by manually created documents or an internal database developed by an employee. Those systems weren’t robust enough to give the shop’s managers the data or the control they needed.
Maria Hunter, Assistant Manager at Solid Industries, said the shop looked at several software platforms but ultimately chose E2 because of its ease-of-use. She said, “Right away, we were impressed by how user friendly E2 is. When thinking about implementation and training our employees, it was important to us that the software be easy to learn. E2 was the clear winner on that point.”
