Who am I:

I love helping companies improve! Seeing them become more efficient and have more fun at work! How did I get this amazing job? I started a machine shop out of college called Pro CNC. We eventually sold that company but during that time, we developed a web-based ERP, MES and QMS system called ProShop. We now sell ProShop to companies around the world.

What I do:

Founder, ProShop ERP
After 17 years as co-founder and president of machine shop Pro CNC, Paul co-founded ProShop ERP, a software company that develops leading industry 4.0, web-based and paperless ERP software for small- and medium-sized manufacturing companies in the metalworking industry.


Why you should follow me on Linkedin:

I am consistently trying to showcase different parts of the industry I love. It’s incredibly rewarding to see the vast improvements we are able to help clients achieve by implementing ProShop. We are able to make meaningful improvements, not only in their businesses, but in their personal lives as well, as they have more success in business with less stress and fewer hours. It’s humbling to be a part of such change. What could be better?!
