Here's what our clients say

“Although we are a 70% make-to-stock manufacturer, Preactor allows us to manufacture what our customer’s need, when they need it. It allows for the flexibility to mix made-to-stock and made-to-order items into our overall production mix, while maintaining customer service levels. Preactor allows us to validate our near-term schedule while planning inventory in the long term. This allows us to balance lower inventory levels while growing our business.”
Patrick Hoffmann
Director of Inventory, Samuel Strapping Systems
“The LSI team took the time to understand my scheduling needs and to understand the rules we wanted to implement in our scheduling. They worked tirelessly to create a scheduling solution that both reflected these rules and improved our productivity and on-time delivery to the customer. Together with LSI, we were able to successfully implement Preactor as well as a shop floor Manufacturing Execution System to improve our performance to the plan.”
Paul Mittendorff
Director of Manufacturing Systems, Hoerbiger
“Because our extruding department has so many complexities, not everyone believed we would be able to accurately automate our scheduling process. However, the LSI team worked tirelessly with our schedulers and the results have been spectacular. We have grown the business while reducing costs by eliminating manual effort and removing confusion. Even more importantly, we have improved our customer service and our bottom line”
