Delft, Netherlands (PRWEB) April 16, 2013
DELFT-based software company Exact today announces a strategic alliance with worldwide leader in advanced planning and scheduling (APS) software Preactor.
The agreement formalises a long-standing relationship between the two firms, whose products complement each other. This will ensure a smooth collaboration between the companies on a global scale, to create more customer value.
The agreement will see Exact expanding its existing ERP offering to a wide range of manufacturers by adding in the option for clients to access advanced planning solutions.
Exact offers a comprehensive mix of business software solutions to its clients, including Exact Globe Next. The addition of Preactor products will allow Exact’s clients to schedule production to make optimum use of finite resources to meet manufacturing deadlines. They can be integrated with existing IT software such as ERP systems provided by Exact.
This means clients can lower their production costs, improve delivery times, and ensure better customer service.
Jarno van Hurne, Product Marketing Director at Exact, said: “Preactor has been our partner for many years now and we have worked together to help clients across the globe.
“This agreement underlines our partnership. It offers our customers a reliable basis to use Exact solutions worldwide in combination with the recognised advanced planning solutions of Preactor.”
The agreement was brokered by Preactor’s Dutch business development partner, Evologics, and Sales Manager and Deputy Director Arjo Oldenbeuving said they were delighted.
“Exact and Preactor products work together to ensure manufacturers across all types of industries maximise their reliability and, consequently, their profits,” he said.
“We’re pleased to have formalised the relationship between them.”
Valérie Goulévitch, Head of Global Marketing and Communication at Preactor, added: “Preactor and Exact share a common vision and approach, as well as a unique corporate culture focused on innovation and client success.
