Cross module features and functionality

Integrated features and functionality

We worked hard to ensure TPI SHOP’s core strengths are integrated across modules for true cross module functionality.

Barcode Integration

Integrate barcodes into every step of your operation from inventory, to jobs, to workflow. Ensure all inventory is intact and workflow progress remains in order and accountable.


Employee times accurate? How much time is spent on task? Inventory tracking issues? We make Biometrics that are quick, secure, and simple.

Attendance system biometric authentication means greater speed and security in day-to-day operations than punchclocks or password systems.

Biometric inventory tracking makes moving items around the shop faster than ever. Fingerprint sign in at a nearby station, scan the barcode on a work order and select the items that are being moved into the new area. Records of every movement are created, allowing for full accountability.

Our biometrics demonstrate that work is done in the correct order, all needed items to complete an operation are available, and that no holds have been placed before letting the employee proceed. A quick scan of a work order allows employees to clock into their next task and get back to working in seconds. Precise timekeeping lets you track exactly how long each task takes.

Document Management

Upload, track, & sort documents via secure connection. Attach to any module. You can upload a single file once and link it to one or multiple areas across the platform for true cross module functionality of any single document.

Employee Data Management

Integrated framework for employee review ensuring your team is on a growth path.

Geofencing & Geolocation

Geofencing for employee clock in, inventory management, job management and service management. Mobile-ready too.

Instant Line-of-Sight

You can’t fix what you can’t measure. You can’t measure what you don’t see. With TPI SHOP, all information is available in real-time, rolled up in KPIs or dashboard elements to allow optimal decisions.

Machine Monitoring

Monitor and reporting on machine performance and utilization. Improve profitability by ensuring your operations run on maximum capacity and utilization.

Mass Data Import/Export

Save time and money. Manual data entry is tedious, wasteful, and contributes to data inaccuracy. Mass import and export of data into or out of modules for things like customer lists, inventory, and more.


Control messages across your entire company from one central dashboard element.


Any device. Anywhere. Anytime. Your ERP fully operates anywhere you do. Mobile-First functionality scales across every module in TPI SHOP.

Multi-Time Zone

Do your operations span multiple time zones? Centrally manage time zone differences from a single dashboard.

Notifications & Subscriptions

Get informed when changes occur using push notifications via email, text message or platform notification.

Quality Management

Procedures & Work Instructions
TPI SHOP allows for the creation of custom work templates called routers which detail the operations and materials needed to complete manufacturing processes. Using this system you can define the quality checks that need to be performed at each step in the manufacturing process.

The quality operation steps can be flagged as optional or required. If required, then the system will not let work proceed until the step has been marked complete. Giving you maximum flexibility to tailor the system to your specific quality requirements.

Attachment & Linking System
Using TPI SHOP’s powerful document management and linking system you can easily upload any of your quality related documentation. Whether it is a hand written inspection checklist, pictures of completed parts or other quality records, they can be uploaded and attached directly to the work order, job, task and many other places throughout the software.

Measurement is a large part of any quality system. TPI SHOP gives you unprecedented access to accurate and real-time data about work that is happening on your production floor. Instantly see information needed to streamline your entire manufacturing processes.

Corrective Action Requests
TPI SHOP’s task system can track problems and the resultant corrective actions electronically. Engineering Change Requests go one step further for design changes with an integrated system that can stop production of incorrect designs.

Real-Time Everything

All information in TPI SHOP is in real time, unlike other ERPs that force asynchronous batching and exports on important processes like Accounting and Finance.
