Our Customer Testimonials
Hi, this is Rick, and I just wanted to say a few words about Shop Floor Automations, and the fantastic work they did for our company. We've been trying to install new software solutions into our administrative office for quite some time, and had been considering doing it in-house to save money. We ended up utilizing several of our crew to spend time on making sure we had everything automated. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a huge waste of human resources, and - quite honestly - the output wasn't very good. Shop Floor Automations was able to talk with us, and find out exactly what our company's objective was, and helped us solidify a plan that made sense. They kept costs down, and were able to systematize everything. Keeping our shop under close watch was essential - you know, we have a lot of blue collar workers who are great with machine tools, but not so great with software and computers. Now, we don't have to worry about any of that stuff anymore! If you're looking for a company who listens to your needs, understands budget, and can implement everything effortlessly, look no further than Shop Floor Automations,
I want to take the time to thank both of you for your support in giving me a better understanding of the system and how to use it with the training you have provided. A few months back I set out to get our MDC system up and running for the data collection purposes. With the barriers I faced whether it was the license issue, hardware or software settings, you provided swift support to get us going in the right direction. I know I will have more questions in the future, and I feel confident in saying that you guys will help me with that. I have learned a lot over the past few months with the problems we have worked through.Stephen M Todd, Parker Hannifin Corp
I was looking for a solution to our CNC communication and CNC program storage problems. I reviewed many companies and decided to go with the Predator solution. A process that had each machine down for only about 10 to 15 minutes for setup. It has worked flawlessly. It just works.Darrell Freeman, Blue White Industries
I purchased a used Okuma lathe and proceeded to try to get it to communicate with my DNC software to no avail. After 2 years, 15 cables, 12 manuals, 100s of pages of parameter settings, and advice from every expert I could find, I stumbled across Shop Floor Automations. Between their expert advice, cabling, and Predator Software I was up and running in 20 minutes.Charles Napier, Napier's Auto Body
I have been extremely satisfied with the Predator Software and with you and the technical support. You have been very helpful and always available when questions arise. This is not the case with some technical support teams and it is very frustrating when it takes 3 or 4 days to get a response. I rate your technical support and the Predator Software as excellent.Jim Wade, Mackin & Company
We were trying to control over 8000 programs, revision levels, and updates - the Predator system was recommended to help minimize the man hours and mistakes of doing this manually. We installed Predator DNC and Editor and have had no downtime with full control. CMW currently manages approximately 8000 part programs. The system seems to be indestructible, we have had no problems.Wayne Carroll, Carroll Machine
Thanks for the quick response! It's nice to know we can receive a prompt response when we have just questions, in addition to urgent problems. The few times that I have needed to call your company, I have always received excellent service.Wayne Yokoyama, Superior Industries
The Predator Software is working great! I really would like to thank you, and especially Amy, for the great phone support. She answered all my questions, and was extremely polite as was the guys in the tech department. Once again, thanks, and if we need anything else we know who we will be calling!Ted Curvin, Bicknell Racing
Were looking for a system that would communicate through wireless network, so we could get rid of the switch box and old wires running all over the machine shop. Predator Software helped us eliminate our old switch box, which we used to communicate for CNC Machines. The software works seamlessly great with wireless access points connected to the machines. The customer support was great. They were very supportive and fixed errors quick when we had a couple of problems.Rajikumar Sigamani, Nell Joy Industries
For years our company had problems with the communication between the computer and the CNC mills. For the first time in a long time things are operating smoothly. One call to Shop Floor Automations and they had the software and hardware we needed to fix the problem. Shop Floor Automations took control of my computer and 1 hour later our problems were solved. Thank you for your commitment and continued support to Future Tool Inc.Todd Modrzejewski, Future Tool Inc.
About Shop Floor Automations
Founded in 1998, Shop Floor Automations, Inc. (SFA) started as a small company focused on distributing the Predator Software product line in San Diego and Los Angeles markets in California. Within 6 months, the company expanded to cover the West Coast as a reseller with the goal to be the #1 reseller in a year. The goal was met in 1999 when SFA was awarded the largest distributor of Predator Software in North America. SFA has been ranked #1 in Predator Software Sales, Service and Support for the past 15 years running.
SFA has become the industry leader in Shop Floor Communications and Machine Monitoring Solutions and has totally redefined what “Shop Floor Automation” solutions should be. With thousands of customers from across the United States, Mexico, Canada, Europe and Asia, SFA was called upon by other vendors to provide other solutions that could be meet by our knowledge, support and sales experience of the manufacturing industry. In 2010, SFA aligned itself with these vendors to close the loop with maintenance management software, job management and scheduling software, hardware manufacturers and machine tool companies.
