vendredi 14 janvier 2011
Seamless integration of Preactor solutions with Microsoft Dynamics NAV and AX positively received by Lithuanian Manufacturers.

Preactor International, the world’s leading specialist planning and scheduling Software Company, announces its first successful seminar with leading Baltic ERP reseller Columbus IT (Lithuania). The seminar day, hosted by Columbus IT in Vilnius, Lithuania on 14th October, featured presentations from Preactor International and Pretczynski Ltd, the Preactor Network Partner for Poland about the benefits of successfully integrating Preactor with Microsoft Dynamics AX and NAV.

He also explained the proven seamless integration of Preactor with both Dynamics AX and NAV, illustrating this with a detailed case study of a Polish food packaging manufacturer that has implemented the Preactor 400 APS solution.

Michal Pretczynski of Warsaw based Pretczynski Ltd was a leading consultant in the project. He gave a presentation describing in detail the implementation process and the changes that the company undertook concerning its existing planning procedures in order to maximise the effectiveness of the solution. Benefits already achieved include more effective and efficient planning with greatly increased visibility of production capacity utilisation. This has led to increased effectiveness within the Sales department and decreased time in responding to customer needs. Overall, the company has increased productivity while lowering costs and minimising waste.

Mike Novels comments on the success of the seminar. “Many manufacturers in the Baltics use Microsoft Dynamics AX and NAV and Columbus IT is a leading provider of expertise in this area. It is exciting to work with Columbus IT and to see the positive response of Lithuanian manufacturers to the proven ability of Preactor to help further enable their existing ERP investments.” Michal Pretczynski is equally positive and refers to the importance of case studies for Lithuanian manufacturers. “Preactor’s abundance of case studies across virtually every industry sector provides a lot of detail not just about why companies decided to invest in production planning and scheduling software, but why they selected Preactor, the actual implementation process itself as well as the proven benefits that Preactor brings.”
