Consona Corporation (Consona), a worldwide leader in providing customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and services for companies of all sizes, today announced the success of a recent special interest group (SIG) event on the topic of Advanced Scheduling.

Information presented included an overview of scheduling theory, various demos, tips from both current users and Consona product experts, interactive discussions and opportunities to learn from other industry professionals. Held at the Marriott North in Indianapolis, this event was highly attended by users around the Midwest and East regions.

The majority of those in attendance had already implemented the Made2Manage Advanced Scheduling module and was looking to better leverage its capabilities, while others were planning to or in the process of implementing the solution.

“I really enjoyed the user presentations,” said Keith LeCompte of Quality Control Corporation. “I think stories of success, as well as trials and tribulations, help users or potential users appreciate the product more.”

When asked if they would recommend the SIG event to a colleague, 93 percent of those in attendance said, “yes.”

“This event was very informative,” said Tracy Smart of Cobham Sensor Systems. “It tied up a lot of loose ends in scheduling to me which was great.”

“The excellent attendance and value received from this SIG workshop shows that those in our market are continuing to find ways to improve their systems and leverage them even more,” said Scott Malia, chief operations officer, Consona. “As a technology partner and company that values customer service and education, it’s important for us to provide events that allow industry professionals to meet on important topics, improve their knowledge of existing systems and discover new solutions.”

Consona is looking to hold similar SIG events across several industries with varying topics and interests.

The Advanced Scheduling module for the Made2Manage ERP solution helps you quickly schedule and sequence all activities in your work centers so you can hit your targeted delivery dates. M2M Advanced Scheduling combines Theory of Constraints methods and powerful optimization technology to help achieve maximum shop throughput.
