The benefits of ERP scheduling

There are many clear benefits from having a simple production scheduling software tool.

  2. You don't have spend more money on advanced training courses to learn how to use our system. We include free support, including via our support site.
  3. Your schedule then creates clear work to lists for your production teams. Every operation, in the right sequence is available to your production teams.

As you'd expect, the work to lists feed our shop floor data capture function*. This then drives the visual works order tracking screens. These screens can save production supervisors hours every day!
