MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Shoplogix is pleased to announce Release 11.1 of Plantnode, the real-time performance management solution that enables sustainable continuous improvement programs. With this release, Plantnode provides multi-lingual capabilities and support for corporations wanting to establish global standards for measuring manufacturing productivity.
Martin Ambrose, CEO of Shoplogix, said, "With this release we build on our earlier successes in Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, Colombia and El Salvador and bring a truly international offering to the marketplace. We see two significant opportunities here for our current and prospective customers: our proven ability to generate measurable productivity and profitability gains in manufacturing operations through sustainable continuous improvement. These opportunities lend themselves to emerging markets as well as the developed world. Our challenge has been getting this opportunity in front of the emerging markets. With Plantnode 11.1 we have the infrastructure to enable rapid adoption through our growing reseller channel.
"Just as important as our success is the opportunity this creates for large multinational organizations looking to leverage manufacturing investments across their global organizations," continued Ambrose. "Shoplogix's Plantnode provides a standardized set of production metrics that can be quickly and easily implemented in any country and in any language."
Global packaging leader Greif, Inc., has deployed Plantnode 11.1 at factories in Belgium, Brazil and the USA. The company uses the product suite to gain real-time visibility into its established production metrics, and evaluate operational successes and opportunities for improvement.
Unlike traditional ERP or MES implementations, Plantnode implements in days, yields immediate visibility to management and provides the intelligence to improve operations in weeks.
"In these uncertain economic times, organizations need to have accurate information to make the right decisions. With Plantnode our customers will be able to understand how well their organizations are really performing, and they will do this at a fixed, reasonable cost that can't be matched. That's the Shoplogix difference," said Ambrose.
