The Calendar Planner Provides a New Solution for Manufacturing

Share Article

The Calendar Planner is being adopted in the Manufacturing and Production sector as an affordable alternative to more costly and complex scheduling systems.

The Calendar Planner, one of the two scheduling products produced by Reel Logix, Inc, is receiving rave reviews from customers in the manufacturing sector that are finding value in this affordable, easy to use and implement scheduling calendar software.

In a recent customer service survey, Mark Michener from Next Conveyor stated that their engineering/manufacturing company had experienced difficulty scheduling plant operations for the entirety of the company's six year history.

"We tried more than one 'Gantt Chart' program; created our own spreadsheets and databases, and evaluated scheduling software ($5,000 to $50,000) when a friend in a completely unrelated industry suggested we take a look at The Calendar Planner."

Michener did and his company has been successfully using The Calendar Planner since July 2006.

"It doesn't look anything like the typical plant scheduling system, but you know what it does look like? A calendar…how novel is that? Imagine using a calendar to schedule your plant -- Who would have thought? It might not be a $50,000 solution, but then, it didn't cost $50,000 either, did it!"

At $99, The Calendar Planner Standard Edition is an affordable project management solution that uses incredible visuals and easy to use scheduling features to empower production planners to manage any production schedule from the simplest to the most complex.

"Our focus continues to be on enhancing our products to really meet the customers' need for power and flexibility while maintaining simplicity. We understand that the goal for our manufacturing users is to maximize resources and minimize costs while improving productivity. TCP is helping many to do that," says Marcia Robinson, VP of Client Relations.

As one very satisfied user at a global pipe manufacturing facility has discovered, The Calendar Planner has utility both on and off the production floor -- "I love it, because it's gotten the training schedule out of my hair."

For over 4 years Reel Logix, Inc has been providing unique calendar software solutions to customers in a diverse range of Markets, which include: Entertainment, Film and Television Production, Government, Education, Non profit, Manufacturing, Construction, Financial, Retail, Technology and Home Users.
