Comments: I happened to catch them at a bad time when I was requesting a demo and they had some people out of the office. It felt at first like I wasn't getting a response but once we connected the service and responsiveness has been great. Can't wait to get our install started!

Well, I wish I could tell you

Comments: I've been trying to get a demo installation to perform a live evaluation, for over a week now. Getting canned, automated emails from their sales team urging me to "watch the videos" which I did before I decided to request a demo. Calling the company doesn't help, just get a recording from "Ryan" (apparently the only salesman in the company) that he is sorry he can't take my call. Tried to schedule a conference call, and soonest available timeslot is weeks out. All of these clues lead a potential customer to conclude that either the company is a sham, or so darn busy because their product is phenomenal. I optimistic for the latter scenario, but losing my patience and eventually I'll just go with one of the traditional solutions.

A great software tool that provides benefits way beyond planning and scheduling

Comments: 10 years ago I was faced with a complex medical device manufacturing environment in desperate need of a better system to plan and schedule a large variety of both internal and external manufacturing processes. The manufacturing team needed the ability to provide customers with accurate delivery dates, reduce inventory, assess the impact of resources going off line, and overall process optimization. After closely looking at several software systems I chose Planet Together because of it's ease of implementation, ease of use, and features that went way beyond my original expectations. In addition to planning and scheduling Planet provides a basis for communications among departments to maintain a focus on critical delays and a means of optimizing processes by facilitating activities such resource analysis. The ongoing support of the Planet Together team has been outstanding. I could not have achieved the great results I did without the use of the Planet Together software.

Comments: It has been a real pleasure working with PlanetTogether. Their software and robust suite of features are outstanding, however, the real thing that separates PT from the rest is their customer service. Their engineers were always very accessible and always willing to go above and beyond to help with any questions that I have. If you are looking to optimize your manufacturing processes, PlanetTogether is the first group I would recommend talking to.

Very effective soaftware.

Comments: The software gives a much better understanding of your capacity in a near to real time environment depending on the frequency of data refreshing. As with any software the data is only as good as what you put in.

The planner must have an understanding of the software as well as the operation to be effective.

The support team has been very helpful of the years with any issues that have developed and a pleasure to work with.

A software for companies that realize and smartly use competent help.

Comments: Galaxy APS is the top application for any manufacturing process out of process heavy production planning and scheduling. Much of the innovation in production planning and scheduling over the past 10 years in software has actually come from this small San Diego company. Galaxy APS combines ease of use, with a powerful optimization approach and clear presentation of master data elements within the application.

Excellent software very flexible and easy to use

Comments: In our complex food manufacturing process, the APS system allows the Planner to plan jobs accordingly to Sales Order, Forecast and Safety Stock demands using the built-in MRP generation. Then jobs are optimize using complex rules to help sequence the jobs in the proper Halal/Kosher/Non Kosher and Allergen order to avoid any cross contamination or extensive setup time.

The system even provides raw material shortage color queues to alert the Planner of any potential shortages that could prevent the production of jobs. This provides quick-turnaround notification the Purchasing department.

The graphical GANTT chart provides a full 360 degree view of the jobs and their statuses and also provides easy drag-n-drop functionality to further provide finite scheduling and expedite of hot orders.

With all of the above functionality, the Planner now plans in minutes versus hours with great accuracy! Great overall product.

Easy to start, Easy to use, Easy to grow!

Comments: We are running Galaxy and it far exceeds our original expectations. It took about 3 months to install with help from Planet Together. The aspect of the installation that originally worried me, the integration to our existing systems, turned out to be very simple Galaxy has an integration tool that makes integration very simple.
We have had payback in under a year, and are very happy.

Brilliant in Production Planning & Scheduling. We got rid of all our manual spresdheet planning.

Comments: We have been using the Galaxy APs for the last 6 years and the software has helped us to automate our factory scheduling and improve customer deliveries. Galaxy APS is very visual, rich in functionality and with it's flexible 'What If' capabilities we have been able to optimise the job scheduling 6 to 12 months in advance. Something which we could have achieved using spreadsheet planning and scheduling.

Excellent APS Software
