O-AT-KA Selects Aptean’s New Ross Production Manager to Manage Operations From the Factory Floor

ATLANTA, Aug. 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- O-AT-KA Milk Products Cooperative, Inc. has selected Aptean’s new Ross Production Manager (RPM) to help their team make quick manufacturing decisions and place relevant operations information at their fingertips. Aptean’s RPM is a device-independent mobile application that works with Aptean’s Ross ERP to provide real-time visibility of manufacturing jobs and the ability to record activities anywhere in the O-AT-KA operations facility.

O-AT-KA selected RPM to improve their operational efficiency, as well as communications within their entire operations team:

“Aptean’s RPM is an ideal fit for us, providing real-time visibility of operations data so that decisions can be made quickly and effectively - right from the factory floor,” said O-AT-KA Director of Technology Kelly Finch. “We needed a solution that bridged the gap between our Operators monitoring Aptean’s Factory MES on their specific line and the Supervision Team that oversees multiple lines utilizing Aptean’s Ross ERP and Factory MES at their desktops. RPM is the tool that solves those problems while delivering an easy-to-use interface on a mobile tablet.”

“Ross Production Manager features comprehensive mobile device compatibility and powerful tools designed to reduce manual burdens on your staff,” said Aptean Vice President of ERP Solutions Jack Payne. “RPM gives our customers the ability to simultaneously optimize their entire production environment, putting the future of production in the palm of their hands.”

Aptean’s Ross Production Manager features:

  • Seamless usage across devices and browsers – iOS, Android and Windows
  • An intuitive user interface efficiently capturing data as it is produced
  • Assistance to achieve paperless goals by eliminating paper recording and manual entry
