Western Computer to Offer The PlannerOne Graphical Advanced Planning and Scheduling Solution

July 15, 2013

Western Computer, Inc. and ORTEMS are proud to announce their partnership for selling and supporting PlannerOne, a world class finite capacity planning and scheduling solution for Microsoft Dynamics NAV. This new partnership has been created to provide Western Computer's Microsoft Dynamics NAV customers access to the best graphical planning tool available.

Because of ORTEMS’ long history in developing these types of solutions, PlannerOne is built on the same proven planning logic and delivers impressive functionality. Yet, it is fast to learn and easy to use. One of its major benefits is that PlannerOne is not a separate standalone system; rather it is a web component of Microsoft Dynamics NAV. Having a single database means everyone is using the same information and it eliminates all the effort and errors commonly found in integrating separate ERP and planning systems.

ORTEMS’ solution, PlannerOne, stands out for its interactive, graphical and collaborative planning capabilities as well as its low total cost of ownership. Not only can it be personalized by the users, but in addition, it has two modules that address the needs of both service and manufacturing sectors. Production Scheduler is for manufacturing companies and offers optimized planning & scheduling, and Resource Planner is ideal for service companies.

Production Scheduler optimizes the schedule based on the production constraints and graphically displays the schedule to detect bottlenecks. The system can improve on time order fulfillment rates, increase the shop floor productivity through optimized schedules, reduce work in process inventories and eliminates information discrepancies through real time integration into Microsoft Dynamics NAV.

Resource Planner provides graphical job planning via resource and job Gantt charts, detailed analysis of resource loads, and at the same time allows simulation and evaluation of what-if scenarios before you publish the plan.

On completion of the partnership agreement René Desvignes, the CEO of ORTEMS stated, "We are delighted to partner with Western Computer, a leader in providing complete Microsoft Dynamics solutions who is recognized by Microsoft for exceptional service and support. Both our teams are fully committed to deliver excellent customer service and innovative solutions." He went on to say, "The combination of Microsoft Dynamics NAV and PlannerOne certified components delivered by Western Computer in North America brings to the market the most competitive platform across all industries from Manufacturing to Services."
