ALPHARETTA, Ga., July 05, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aptean, a leading provider of mission critical enterprise software solutions, and PlanetTogether, a global leader in supply chain management software, announced a partnership to offer Aptean customers additional solutions for their planning and scheduling needs.
The partnership was recommended by Aptean customer, Illes Seasonings & Flavors. Illes implemented Ross ERP in 2007, which has resulted in increased productivity from better inventory tracking and higher yields on raw material as a result of the recipe optimization tools. As production grew for Illes Seasonings & Flavors, they realized they needed a more robust planning and scheduling system to develop and manage an accurate production schedule. After extensive research, Illes selected PlanetTogether’s Advanced Planning & Scheduling (APS) tools to solve their scheduling needs which provided a foundation for the partnership between Aptean and PlanetTogether.
“PlanetTogether's software is by far the best and most encompassing planning software package offered today,” said Ed Czysz, Illes Production Scheduling Manager. “By implementing APS, Illes can react swiftly to an unforeseen impact that may potentially affect production schedules.”
“What used to take us hours to schedule [our production] manually, now only takes seconds,” said Les Howell, Executive Director of IT at Illes. “I immediately called Aptean to recommend they explore a partnership with PlanetTogether to integrate the APS capabilities into Aptean’s Ross ERP software to provide an even more robust solution to the market.”
“At Aptean, we value the input from our customers on how we can create new and better ways of achieving their business objectives,” said Jill Smith, Aptean Senior Director of Ross ERP. “In addition to the existing tools currently available from Aptean, this partnership will provide options for advanced planning and scheduling to increase resource utilization and on-time deliveries while also saving effort.”
“Our partnership with Aptean is an important step for us to expand our presence with process manufacturers in the food and beverage industry,” said Jim Cerra, Founder and CEO of PlanetTogether. “It is exciting to partner with Aptean and to benefit from their global expertise in bringing relevant and trusted enterprise software solutions to their customers. We are also looking forward to growing our partnership into other vertical markets Aptean serves.”
PlanetTogether is also proud to be a sponsor of the 2016 Ross SIG Conference, a four-day event designed to provide attendees with industry-leading insight into strategies, trends, and technology related to Ross ERP and their specific industries.
