Workflow Automation in Action

Welcome to part two of our blog series detailing how workflow automation can have an enormous positive impact on your business.

The Waste of Just in Case

Posted on Mar 1, 2018 10:15:00 AM by J. Michael Wong, CPIM

From Just in Case to Just in Time

There’s a saying that goes like this, “you can’t wish for success, you have to work for it.” Wishing for no stock outs or line shortages with Just In Case (JIC) inventories is the same thing. Yes, there are lots of ways to “fire and forget” your replenishment plans, but there’s an art—and science—to it.

Gartner Names Macola Software a Leader in the FrontRunners Quadrant for Manufacturing ERP

Posted on Feb 15, 2018 6:41:11 PM by Nick Mears

Gartner Names a Leader

Gartner has named Macola Software a "Leader" in the FrontRunners Quadrant for Manufacturing Software. 

Starting with a list of over 315 manufacturing ERP products, Gartner, through a data-driven assessment, recognized 23 solutions that advanced into their famous quadrant methodology.
