ExcelSoft, Sri Lanka’s premier high performance enterprise solutions software company recently announced the launch of Foresight - performance optimized graphical production planning and scheduling tool, designed specifically to maximize the usage of available, finite capacity and to improve on time delivery in high volume production environments. Launched recently at Trend Setters, a long standing ExcelSoft partner, the system has already successfully enhanced production capabilities across the company’s production line.
Explaining the core benefits and value addition provided by Foresight, Saman Jayawardena, Chief Operating Officer of ExcelSoft explained, “Foresight is the product of years of experience, evolution and technological advancement. In industries where minimizing waste and maximizing efficiency and production is the rule of the day, Foresight provides unparalleled control, providing real time tracking and visual planning that allows even a single planner to rapidly and effectively plan and schedule dynamically changing production plans across multiple production sites with an absolute degree of accuracy. Foresight is designed to be highly feature rich and most affordable planning tool available to the apparel industry to date and is also designed to allow planners to oversee production requirements with a high degree of confidence and speed while effectively maximizing the use of available capacity. The system also provides transparency, allowing for a more proactive process.”
Designed to be both visually user friendly and provide a wide and comprehensive view for planners, Foresight comes with an impressive list of features, including intuitive visual board displays that allow real-time tracking of production progress and the ability to track the status of specific orders as well as multi product line and multi-location support, allowing even a single planner to manage large volumes of orders across multiple locations simultaneously and accurately. Foresight also includes comprehensive enterprise dashboards that provide management with a graphical summary of production planning information as well as improved information accuracy and communication capabilities.
Explaining the end user benefits, Joys Chokatte, Director of Trend Setters said, “Foresight has truly done wonders for our overall production process in terms of increased efficiency, resource allocation and productivity. The intuitive visual board displays allow us to follow the progress of orders in real-time and foresee and plan accordingly for any issues. It also offers the option of managing many locations and product lines simultaneously- simplifying our internal processes and guaranteeing high degrees of efficiency and control. The ability to integrate with TOPS ERP also allows us complete critical path management throughout the process from order confirmation all the way through to packing and finished goods management. For a company as widespread as Trend Setters, the ability to provide real-time access to information through reports and the dashboard allows everyone to be on the same page and make better informed decisions. As always we are delighted with the solutions provided by ExcelSoft and see great opportunities for the future.”
