Preactor Collects Hat Trick of Industry Commendations

The integration, developed in tandem with Quinn and Associates, the North American Master Reseller of Preactor, provides Expandable customers the ability to set the most efficient production schedule for their work orders based on the capacity of their shop floor equipment and labor force.

"Expandable is committed to providing our customers with the tools they need to grow all the way to the top tier of their industry," said Expandable CEO Bob Swedroe. "Our larger make-to-order customers have demonstrated the need for constraints-based finite capacity planning to help them reduce costs by maximizing use of their equipment. Integration with Preactor’s family of products provides our customers with a range of planning tools they can choose from to meet the specific scheduling requirements of their operation."

"Partnering with Expandable broadens our reach by exposing us to the small and medium business segment of the enterprise applications market," said Gregory Quinn of Quinn and Associates. "Preactor is the world’s leading planning and scheduling software company, and integrating with Expandable reinforces our number one position by increasing our market exposure."

The integration supports Expandable customers deploying the Preactor 200, 300 or 400 series of products. "Customers can choose the Preactor product that best matches the complexity of their manufacturing operation," said Quinn. "They’ll gain the benefits of bi-directional integration with the Expandable ERP system in whichever Preactor product they choose to deploy. Our integration adapter is certified by Expandable, which means customers will gain a well-supported product with low implementation costs."
