Bin The Whiteboard. Your Production Scheduling Is Going To the Next Level.

“Every Friday we plan out the production schedule for the next week, but if a last minute order or cancellation comes in, we have to scrap it and start again.” Does this sound familiar? Whether you’re managing your production schedule is on a whiteboard, a spreadsheet or on a piece of paper you need to be able to adapt to your customers’ orders, which is where Advanced Business Cloud Essentials will change your life!

Scheduling (That Knows More Than You)

The intelligent production scheduling tool in Advanced Business Cloud Essentials is configured to understand your manufacturing process, the components needed to make each product and the resources you have available to complete a job. This allows you to drop new jobs into the schedule and instantly see when jobs will be completed.

See Due Dates & Finish Times Easily

The software allows you to select from outstanding works orders and drop them straight into your schedule. The system will then assign the job to each relevant resource, based on the known manufacturing process and Bill of Materials for each product, at the earliest possible time. It will then feedback to you the due date, start time, job duration and expected finish time.

Quickly Edit & Adapt Your Schedule With Ease

The schedule can easily be edited with a simple drag and drop process which prevents you moving processes into the wrong order, or overloading resources. More and more jobs can be added with any issues or deadlines that would not be met highlight to you instantly, so you can move jobs around to other resources or add more resources (including overtime) if required.

Get One Day Of Your Week Back, Every Week

A last minute order is no problem at all with Advanced Business Cloud Essentials. If a new works order arrives, simply drop it into the schedule and it’ll do all of the planning for you – only alerting you if a due date won’t be met. Production scheduling will have never been easier (and we’ve probably just given you a day of your time back each week!).

The HBP Group Success StoryHortech Ltd

Agricultural and Irrigation company, Hortech Ltd, was formed in 1989, and over the last 30-years, they have diversified their specialities to offer a variety of services.

Their success was juxtaposed with limitations, due to an accounts package that was unable to grow with them. Their outdated solution was incompatible with the expeditious nature of the manufacturing industry, causing complications with their supply chain management and scheduling.

We wanted a system for the future, and with the ongoing investments and automated updates that Advanced was making in Business Cloud Essentials, I knew we would instantly benefit from new functionality as it was released.
