"Xpress Software is a Microsoft Certified Partner, which means that they have demonstrated superior levels of successful implementations, capabilities and certification. Microsoft Certified Partners are required to meet rigorous requirements for certification and expertise. Xpress Software has reached the status of Certified Partner by demonstrating increased levels of developer certification, deep real-world experience, and by providing completed customer reference projects that were independently verified by Microsoft."
Through engagement with Microsoft, Microsoft Certified Partners have in-depth access to a variety of exclusive resources and early product information. Resources include priority access to a support team of Microsoft certified systems engineers, non-disclosure evaluation of new products and technologies, as well as planning tools and events to keep up to speed on the latest Microsoft product developments and future direction.
Xpress Software employs Microsoft Certified Professionals (MCPs); individuals who have passed certification exams designed to validate their mastery using Microsoft tools and technologies. A recent study of Microsoft Certified Systems Engineers (MCSEs) and their supervisors by Jack McKillip, Ph.D. at Southern Illinois University, rated MCPs as highly effective workers on the job and IT supervisors rated MCSEs as more competent on all global dimensions as compared to non-certified systems engineers. Be sure to ask for a MCP on your next project.
This year Microsoft will continue to invest in certification and enhanced resources and support for Microsoft Certified Partners as part of our ongoing commitment to provide customers with choice and best of breed product solutions via Microsoft Certified Partner companies such as Xpress Software."
General Manager - Microsoft Certified Partner Program
"I will tell you that we, as well as our customers, were highly impressed. Not only have you designed the software to work seamlessly with
other applications that we have, the system is easy to understand and easy to use.
This product makes much more sense for the manufacturer who doesn't have the caliber of personnel needed to implement and manage
SAP or Baan on a daily basis. Quite frankly, I really do not know
why anybody would go for something else.
We have been using the system since 1998 in 8 locations all over North America. Not only I have full control over
what is happening in all locations, I have my information wherever I go - on my desktop or in my Palm.
So - I know right away if $120,000 of orders were not shipped on time (and why), how many units were ordered in first half of the day and which products and colors are our bestsellers.
But the most impressive result is - seamless real-time manufacturing.
All orders are transferred electronically through WebEDI, verified, automatically entered in Order Entry,
gone through explosion with the latest BOM, worksheets are issued, bar-coded and tracked in real-time, parts and materials are ordered,
products are manufactured, labeled and shipped on time.
That's true 21st century technology."

"We are an office furniture manufacturer which produces workstations and transition tops for many panel systems.
We have been using Xpress Software applications for over 4 years.
The transition from our previous system to our new one was almost transparent because of the products and support we received from Xpress Software.
We have been particularly pleased with the manufacturing application designed by Xpress. The program offers a variety of options for different manufacturing situations, and arranges data in concise, useful formats. The technical support staff is very knowledgeable, and their response time is quite short. They are particularly responsive during times of urgency and the solutions are always satisfactory. Furthermore,
Xpress Software is cooperative when updates or improvements are requested to tailor their products to our specific needs.
We would confidently recommend Xpress Software products to any firm with a need for manufacturing software."
"I just want to send you a quick note to thank you for the service and attention you have provided our company over the last few years. I am very appreciative for the way you and your staff have handled all our projects.
Migrating from legacy 2D to a sophisticated 3D environment has been challenging, and I am very pleased with the solutions Xpress Software provided us.
Mostly, I want to thank you and your staff for the quickness in attending all our calls. It seems at times that we have nothing but crisis situations and it is reassuring to know that we can count on your immediate response."

"When we opened our new plant - we needed a robust, customizable and scalable system
that could be implemented fast - from start to finish. Xpress Software
did all that - and in 3 months we were up and running.
The other software company (Baan) needed 6-12 months longer for implementation and $600,000 more for the software.
And our sister company went with Visual Manufacturing a year ago - they are still struggling to put all the pieces together.
Now we are further optimizing our manufacturing and
re-designing most of the business processes to cut our delivery times in half.
It would be next to impossible to do it without help from Xpress Software."
"When Xpress Software installed their biometric module for employee verification
I was skeptical at first. But after changing system rules to our 2 shift manufacturing rules,
we completely eliminated the need for one dedicated person entering all time cards data for payroll.
The nicest thing about the system is email notifications. I get warnings if somebody
is late 3 times in last 2 weeks or late more than 1 hour or anything else we want to track.
And we completely eliminated "buddy punching" (when one person punched in for another). Fortunately,
you can not pass around body parts as easily as you can do it with cards."
Global Wood Custom
"I was very pleasantly surprised when I asked about automating creation of Custom papers and shipping documents and Xpress Software did it in a matter of weeks.
Now I do in minutes what used to take hours or days. Thank you so much!"
"Installation was a breeze! Wanted to let you know that such ease of use is greatly appreciated, and is a good example of how someone who has "been there and done that" designs software.
We have worked with quite a few Vertical Industry Partners, and there are many good ones, but there are none better than Xpress."
