Major steps to enhance stability plus: Customizing tooltips

While many other software vendors went into lock-downs and Furlough processes during the past months, we actually - silently - continued our investments into our just plan it production scheduling software. Our development focus wasn't on these shiny things in the front-end. Instead, we worked hard on some long-planned major changes to our back-end in order to further enhance the stability of just plan it. In addition to this, we decided to ship customizable tooltips as well.

Next step of streamlining just plan it: Filtering (product update)

In these challenging times, we are lucky. We at NETRONIC Software GmbH, the company behind just plan it, are able to continue to work and provide you with all we have to offer (read more at the NETRONIC Blog).

As such we continue to think and work on just plan it to further enhance your scheduling capabilities. So for this release we focused on you being able to better keep the focus in a complex schedule: Filtering out what you don’t need to see and highlighting what’s left.

Streamlining our production scheduling software (product update)

This update may seem a bit lackluster if compared to previous releases: We “just” streamlined your production scheduling experience by changing some dialogs and removing some unnecessary steps in the processes to help you speed up your scheduling processes.

So you might ask: “Why is this the result of a month’s work?” Truth be told, it isn’t. We are working on some big enhancements to our infrastructure and the way we can bring you more updates faster. But this is nothing that we can easily show you as this is mostly work in the back-end of things.

The first update of 2020: Seconds (product update)

Today's update marks the first one of 2020 and we start the year with a small update to warm up for the rest of it. I’m exited thinking about the changes we plan for this year, which will include things that may be more in the background but will help stabilize just plan it and make sure your scheduling experience is smooth to major features that will really enhance the software even further.

But for now let’s take a second (pun very much intended ;-) to take a closer look at what today brings:

The last product update of 2019: managers (new role) and KPIs by email

With today’s update we want to thank you, our customers, for the last year of letting us help you bring your production scheduling to the next level. We actually feel that we can look back with some pride as we made a couple of major enhancements to our production scheduling software. My personal highlights were the capability to assign 2 resources to any given task and that we - finally - cracked the code and implemented the send-ahead quantity capability to further reduce your lead times.

We also got really great and insightful feedback from all of you that allowed us to enhance just plan it in ways we ourselves wouldn’t have thought of. So before detailing this last small update of the year 2019, in the name of the entire just plan it team, I just want to say:

THANK YOU and happy holidays! We are looking forward to 2020, to continuing to work with you, and to further enhancing just plan it to best facilitate you in professional production scheduling. -- But now to the actual product update:
