REACH Planner and Scheduler

What is REACH Planner & Scheduler?

What is REACH Planner & Scheduler?

Will be responsible for the identification and creation of opportunities for sales of REACH products and services in your market. This will include evaluation and determination of current and emerging needs of potential customers, marketing and opportunity creation, management and co-ordination of sales effort with representatives/partners, development of marketing collateral and advertising plans, participation in trade shows, business and technical presentations.

RPS is the advanced planning & scheduling software solution that will ensure the most efficient use of your capacities so that you can meet delivery dates for collections and quickly react to changes in trends such as new colors and styles.

RPS will help you plan 'start dates' for various orders, 'lines' on which different orders should be loaded and the schedule/sequence of orders to fulfill a customer requirement on a specific date.

RPS will also determine and display the manpower and machine requirement for various orders.

RPS will consider the various constraints of your manufacturing environment and suggest Available

To Promise (APT) dates ('due dates') that can realistically be met.

Poor execution can undermine the best-developed plans. So RPS will also assist you in execution by offering clear visibility of all orders and on-screen progress tracking of orders.
