High Point, NC (PRWEB) August 30, 2010
E.J. Victor, headquartered in Morganton, North Carolina, subscribes to WoodOptimizer, taking advantage of a fundamentally faster, less risky and more cost-effective alternative to the traditional software purchase model.
“Using WoodOptimizer on a subscription basis allows us to reap the benefits of a powerful package like WoodOptimizer, which was previously only available to much larger manufacturers”, says Mark Hord, Lean Manufacturing Manager at E.J Victor. “Initial tests have already shown expected savings of over 10% in raw material as well as increased productivity, easily justifying the affordable monthly fee", Hord adds.
WoodOptimizer enables upholstery manufacturers to respond to market changes and remain viable in an increasingly competitive global environment that includes customer demands for made-to-order, just-in-time products at competitive prices. WoodOptimizer’s RollingNestTM automatically optimizes the placement of pieces from one or more orders on multiple sheets of plywood, resulting in material yields that are consistently higher than any other solution.
By generating efficient tool paths, WoodOptimizer also improves the productivity of CNC routers.
“By offering our market leading WoodOptimizer software on a subscription basis, we are now opening the door to new users who previously could not approve the capital expense, or did not have sufficient volume to justify it”, says Avner Ben-Bassat, Plataine’s President. “With the subscription model, payment becomes a usage-based operational expense, which does not require any capital budgets or a long-term commitment.”
