Companion Products – Paper-Less MV2 MES for Fourth Shift


ICG offers companion products that extend the life of Fourth Shift. These companion products are fully integrated and enable your ERP to function more powerfully than ever.

ICG and Paper-Less have partnered to deliver their MV2 MES (Manufacturing Execution System) for Fourth Shift customers. This is a great new choice for shop floor reporting, visibility, and control over production partners.

We chose to partner with Paper-Less because they:

  • Have decades of experience in discrete manufacturing – supporting the shop floor is all they do.
  • They also offer a dedicated professional services team. It includes manufacturing and implementation consultants, MS-certified development team, and dedicated help desk.


Manufacturers will find tremendous value with MV2 because it:

  • Establishes the foundation for standardization and repeatable processes.
  • Enables the adoption and deployment of Lean manufacturing methods.
  • And seamlessly moves their manufacturing technology into the 21st century.


Goals of using a Manufacturing Execution System include:

  • Improved manufacturing visibility.
  • Decreased siloed communication.
  • Increased responsiveness.
  • Reduced/eliminated disparate systems.


And MV2 will still run, even if Fourth Shift is unavailable. It can be located on-premise or hosted. In addition, ICG provides seamless integration utilizing our proprietary MES connector, VisiWatch, and FSTI.

We know that MV2 will help our customers work more effectively. To learn more about it or other companion products for Fourth Shift, contact your sales rep!
