A. Cloud-based software means that the web applications and the associated mobile application can be accessed from any remote place through the internet.
There are many benefits of using cloud-based software as listed below :
Plant Manager uses AWS cloud services which is a very high end secured cloud service.
A. Plant Manager is a finite capacity advanced planning and scheduling software which includes advanced features such as material requirement and replenishment planning with dynamic scheduling.
A. Yes. The mobile app is Android-based and is available on Play Store for download.
A. As per our previous experience with our clients, we have standardized Plant Manager software's implementation process. The implementation process requires approximately 1-month which includes time for your team to get trained, to create the masters and to go live. To know more about the detailed implementation plan, click here. (link to implementation process page).
A. We have two teams to support our clients, Implementation team and the online technical support team. Once the initial training phase of implementation is completed, for the next 3 months, the assigned Implementation Consultant would be available for support. Post 3 months, the support is handled by our backend support team. We recommend purely online support.

A. No, Both the software can be used as complementary systems. We recommend everyone to use both the software to reap benefits.
A. Plant Manager is an Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) software which focuses on Production Planning and Scheduling of orders on all workstations and machines across the shop floor. Plant Manager considers several constraints of scheduling like machine and material availability and hence provides realistic and achievable schedules. The dynamic scheduling feature considers real-time production and provides real-time traceability and revised expected completion dates of all orders.
ERP has different modules of business like Accounting, Finance, Inventory, Production, Asset Management, Sales and Distribution, Warehousing, Logistics, etc. The ERP focuses on all other aspects of business transactions other than production planning and scheduling.
A. Interaction with ERPs or other software can be done by 2 methods:
a. Excel templates: Export Orders, GRN, Dispatch and vendor outsourced material challan from your ERP in the standard format of Plant Manager and import to avoid double entry. This feature is offered in the standard package of the software.
b. Real-time interaction using API: Directly integrate ERP with Plant Manager software as per your need. There will be additional costs for customization.
A. Yes. Users can do production entries in our software. By doing so, the software provides visibility and traceability of production.
A. IOTs are the machine monitoring systems which fetch production and performance data from the machine and the software dashboard provides users with the visibility of machine/plant performance.
Plant Manager is different than them. If IOTs are Oxygen level monitoring machine for humans, the Plant Manager software is the doctor who tells how much should be the oxygen level of a human.
In our opinion, there is no comparison between these 2 systems. We recommend clients to use Plant Manager software and IOT systems together since they complement each other to solve pain areas.
