Why the heck should you get a Visual Scheduler?

Posted by Paulina Soto on Apr 29, 2020 4:13:48 PM

Scheduling is no easy job. You need to match a production order to available machine times, skilled resources, required material, and a few other variables. An ERP, like Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central is perfect for gathering the information you need to start scheduling. The issue being: Business Central displays all information as tables or within tables. There’s a great search field and filter functionality on top that eases the data hunt. But it would be simpler to see it in one view.

Who hasn’t heard the phrase “A picture is worth a thousand words”? Well, that’s basically our motto. At NETRONIC, our goal is to turn your production schedule into a dynamic visual. As you may know, we accomplish that using Gantt charts. But we work to boost up the contributions of a Gantt chart for project, resource and production planners. How would you benefit from having a Visual Scheduler? Allow me to explain...

New release of VPS and VJS for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central

Posted by Ute Gillet on Apr 15, 2020 11:08:00 AM

First of all and beyond anything I hope you and your relatives are well and healthy!

It's been not so long ago that I've informed you of the 1.5 release of both the Visual Production Scheduler (VPS) and the Visual Jobs Scheduler (VJS). In the meantime, the world as we have known it has changed completely and the days when I wrote this blog seem like forever ago. But as you all know, it's no use complaining so we at NETRONIC rolled up our sleeves and settled in our home offices. Thankfully, none of our team members has gotten sick yet and due to our well-organized and well-working hard and software we are fully operational as our CEO Martin pointed out in his blog  How we ensure our operational agility for you - and for ourselves some weeks ago.

So you can be assured that the new version was worked upon with the same care and dedication as you are used to from us. Also in version 1.6 we continued the process of streamlining the products and improving the user experience - and let me tell you here we have achieved a true leap in performance! - but we also came up with a couple of  nice useful new features for you.  

As always, the complete release information can  be found in the respective notes for VPS and VJS. As of now, both new versions are already available in AppSource :-)

Warning! This is not your average Free Trial Version

Posted by Paulina Soto on Mar 26, 2020 2:35:33 PM

Did your customer ask for a visual scheduler, but you have no idea where to begin with? You thought of us, maybe you showed a video, or we participated in a demo and now you're considering how to continue. I know what you’ll say next: “My customer wants to try the software before making a decision”. I get you. But this is when I’ll reply, “I can offer you our Quick Start Package”. Here is what this is all about and why we decided for an alternative to the free trial.

How to keep track of job progress in project planning with Dynamics 365 BC

Posted by Ute Gillet on Mar 12, 2020 12:44:46 PM

Version 1.5 of both the Visual Production Scheduler and the Visual Jobs Scheduler have been released as of lately. These releases don't offer as many new features as you may be accustomed to from us, but this doesn't mean, of course, that we have been idle. On the contrary, to further improve our products and offer you the best possible user experience we decided that in this release we would do a lot of streamlining and consequently have strongly focused on product maintenance in the form of bugfixing and performance improvement.

For you and me, this means that we have more space and time to deal with the main new feature of the VJS and explain it in detail, with a little theoretical excursion into the world of formulas. As always, the complete release information can  be found in the respective notes for VPS and VJS.

Partner-to-partner: new role-model for the Dynamics 365 Business Central channel?

Posted by Martin Karlowitsch on Oct 29, 2019 10:53:44 AM

Some days ago, I attended Directions EMEA in Vienna - the annual gathering of many Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central partners. It took me a while to digest my impressions, and summarize my key take-aways. Other than many other Directions EMEA reflections that I read and enjoyed, mine is less product-centric, less tech-centric, but more business model-centric.
