Waterloo, ON - December 3, 2003 - RSS Solutions Inc., today announced the implementation of their industry leading Advanced Planning, Scheduling, and Execution (APS) solution by Quadrel Labeling systems. The foremost labeling machine manufacturer in North America is using the solution to dramatically improve bottom-line production efficiency, overcoming limitations of the enterprise resource planning (ERP) system in use prior to the RSS solution.
Historically, Quadrel used an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system with supplementary spreadsheets and manual scheduling processes that was not meeting the needs of their complex production environment. They required a cost effective, fully automated solution that could improve their quoting process, on-time deliveries and overall shop floor productivity. To accomplish this efficiency improvement, the company evaluated the planning and scheduling module from their ERP vendor, and after doing benchmark comparisons with the RSS solution, Quadrel selected RSS.
"We selected RSS Solutions' powerful Advanced Planning, Scheduling & Execution technology because of its ease-of-use, powerful "what-if" modeling engine and proven track record," said Steve Turoczy, operations manager at Quadrel Labeling Systems. "Quadrel is now using the RSS solution to plan, predict and control our complex production environment. As a result, we have real-time visibility into job status, the ability to conduct "what-if" analysis, as well as sophisticated capacity planning. RSS and their team are extremely knowledgeable and have been tremendous throughout the whole installation process."
"The RSS solution is getting great recognition in the market place, especially when we benchmark it against the scheduling capabilities of traditional ERP vendors," said Michael Cox, president of RSS Solutions Inc. "Quadrel is an excellent example of a company that can get immediate improvements in efficiency and bottom-line ROI benefits using our technology."
