Office Compatible Apps on an iPad

"These templates help us become more efficient in our manufacturing processes. Now with the tablet compatibility we’re empowered everywhere." - Cook Compression

User Solutions, Inc.’s original Spreadsheet Operations Manager, a low cost collection of 35 spreadsheet templates for manufacturing and operations management has been upgraded to be operational on tablets such as the iPad. Now via its compatibility with Office 365, it has never been so convenient or simple to manage manufacturing operations such as Forecasting, Inventory Management, Facility Layout and Location, Material Requirements Planning, Production Planning, Production Scheduling, Quality Control, and Analysis of Waiting Lines. Whether computerizing for the first time or looking to drill down to a specific area without logging into a massive, multi-module, enterprise wide system, Spreadsheet Operations Manager combines sophisticated analysis with user friendly computing,

Additionally, Spreadsheet Operations Manager has been enhanced to provide a smooth upward transition to more encompassing systems from User Solutions that address the full range of production scheduling and resource management from job shops to plant manufacturing and maintenance.

Tablet Access

Now with just a few clicks on a tablet, access the data needed to not only make but also execute decisions regarding distribution center locations, workforce and inventory levels, cycle time optimizations, quality measurements, overtime scheduling, economic order quantity analysis, and many more. By using the spreadsheet format, both familiar and intuitive to millions, customers realize savings in training time and support costs. Since the actual source code (formulas, macros, and data) is part of each template, users can modify and customize to meet specific requirements. Each template includes actual applications, ready to reflect each user’s specific situation. New users will begin reducing operating costs while improving efficiency and quality within hours.

Flexible Growth

As Operations Manager improves overall planning and scheduling effectiveness, more often than not companies find their needs expanding along with the overall resulting growth, leading to the desire for broader, more encompassing systems. Operations Manager is positioned so that movement to larger systems is a painless and seamless transition to support this expansion and growth.

Sharing the Decision Making Process

“Users have the ability to share analysis results, along with the actual techniques, assumptions and data used to arrive at decisions, via the web. For example: The Production Supervisor can see, first hand, why the workforce must be reduced and check assumptions,” explains CTO Jim Convis. “Perhaps a key assumption regarding cycle times was incorrect. With the Operations Manager the Supervisor has the unique opportunity to verify assumptions, correct data and re-run the model.”

Low Cost and Fully Compatible

Priced at only $12.50 each or $129 for all 35 models, the templates can operate with any spreadsheet compatible with Microsoft Excel, Lotus 1-2-3, Quattro Pro and now with Office 365. User Solutions’ products (sold directly from and through a number of Internet resellers) are guaranteed and include free trials and documentation. The toll free number is 1-800-321-USER (8737).
