    How do you manage your work orders?

    Well that's it, we've been using an excel sheet where we have date/Order Number/status, but maybe there is a better way to do that?

    anybody uses SugarCRM? maybe something incorporated to that system?

    We do a lot of printing for the orders too. I would prefer to somehow find a more automatic way.

    We use Filemaker Pro. Good system. Very customizable. Not the "easiest" to use...

    We are a small digital shop with a lot of finishing equipment.
    I've build a Python/Django ( http://www.djangoproject.com ) application that is specifically tailored to our needs and costs.

    I'm using the admin app/interface for 99% of stuff. Its basically CRUD (create-read-update-delete) forms for the most part (customers, visits ,quotes etc) but i've d some customizations to handle JobTickets. It does cost/price calculations by simple selecting the jobs parameters (papers, machines, finishing, etc etc) with some options.

    It doesn't do automatic imposition so paper size and quantity have to be calculated by the operator and typed in (also, because of this it can't do automatic digital/offset recommendation)
    I don't do JDF either because a) The JDF spec is ridiculously complicated and b) I do not need it.

    It obviously would not compare to enterprise/expensive software but i don't need something like that either.

    (it is also easy to integrate into the company website since it *is* a website.)

    For me "NewWaySERVICE" from orologic.com does the job. It's simple and very intuitive.

    most of these are all paid subscriptions to use. Any got a good old school way of doing it.

    I am so unorganized and would like to find a good work order to get rid of the hassle.

    Thanks

    Have you ever been on "download.com?" They have a bunch of stuff, free. Type in what you're looking for, what system (windows/mac) and see if anything pops up.
