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 :-)

Why learning the VAPS during quarantine is perfect

How we have been keeping busy

The whole world has been affected by the recent COVID-19 pandemic. This has changed how many organizations around the world work. As a company, we had to adjust to continue an unchanged delivery of our services to our partners and customers (see an earlier blog post we wrote about how we are currently working).

For those of you who are stuck at home and want to learn something new, we have recently launched our Visual Scheduling Academy, which aims to educate people about our newest extension for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central: the Visual Advanced Production Scheduler (VAPS). I’m pretty sure this has kept several of our partners busy during this time.

What about you, what have you been up to during self-quarantine and isolation?
