  • Adam Darr, Federal Steel              I have been nesting plates for the fabrication shop for about a year.  The SDS support team is amazing, they know their stuff.  I just wanted to say thanks. I’ve talked to a lot of support technicians in the fifteen years I have worked here, you guys rock!! Keep it up.
  • Mark Selvaggio, Selvaggio Steel“We made the right choice after scrapping a different vendor's software package after only “1” year of use. We soon found out why Shop Data nesting software is the best in the industry on the Peddinghaus FPB 1500. The edge start is amazing and controls both scrap and consumable costs by not piercing thru the material on every cut. The software is easy to use and intelligent. The staff at Shop Data are always on call if we have a question and when we needed to install the next version, we had them come to the plant for installation, setup and more importantly, training. Our staff were very happy with the training and the professionalism of Shop Data. I highly recommend Shop Data to any company that needs “quality plate nesting” with their plate burning equipment….."
  • Rob Dosanj, Shop Detail Foreman, Waiward Steel LP"I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Shop Data Systems for your customer service. We have had some difficult jobs to work on at Waiward with the plate processors and we require a software program provider that will work with us to solve an issue. Shop Data’s support team works with the techs at Peddinghaus to find solutions.  If we think of some idea’s to make us more productive, we will ask SDS to see if a program can be made to help us be more efficient. We had an upgrade done on all our computers last year with the new Shop Data software version. We had Mark over for the whole week. He was very helpful in ensuring the software was running correctly and if there was a bug he would take care of the matter straight away. This saved us lots of money on down time. Mark was patient in training our operators on the new software and was here on some occasions late into the night to ensure the next shift had no issues. He even stopped on the way to the airport to ensure everything was running good. This was very much appreciated. We hope to build further on our relationship with Shop Data over the next coming years."
