The move to an automated Ortems solution –away from a “manual” Sage ERP X3 combined with MS Excel spreadsheets– has enabled quick and easy repositioning of work orders and delivered substantial efficiencies and time savings. We operate multi-customer packaging lines, and occasionally we took on additional orders without really forecasting the related load, which caused delays and customer dissatisfaction. Ortems provides us with a graphical and collaborative solution that lets all of our planning and sales administration teams work together and share an interactive schedule. Today we are in the burn-in phase for our MPS for the 27 packaging lines, and we are considering extending it to our production mixers.
