Preactor expands Spanish operations

International software company Preactor has announced the opening of a direct office in Spain to help manufacturers across the country become more efficient.

Based in Sant Cugat del Vallès, Barcelona, Preactor Europe’s Spanish office will be the newest international office of the worldwide leader in advanced planning and scheduling software.

The on-the-ground, local expertise will prove invaluable to companies using Preactor software in industries as diverse as manufacturing, logistics and services.

More than ever before, companies are recognising the benefits they can obtain by using Preactor to manage their production in a more agile and efficient way

Raul Buiza, country manager for Preactor Europe in Spain and Portugal, said the launch of the Spanish office today was timed to support Spanish firms who are prioritising return on investment in order to survive the current economic climate.

“The financial downturn continues to have a significant impact on Spanish businesses, which are therefore looking to maximise their return on investment in the fastest, slickest way possible,” he said. “More than ever before, companies are recognising the benefits they can obtain by using Preactor to manage their production in a more agile and efficient way, even when demand varies from week to week.”

The Preactor range of production planning and scheduling software is already in use by a wide range of businesses across Spain, including major players such as Zedis, Argal, Tuboplast-Ctl, Azud and Takasago.

The Spanish office will support Preactor’s network of business partners in Spain, who provide local, face-to-face support to more than 40 existing Preactor users.

“It’s interesting to see how enterprise resource planning (ERP) and manufacturing execution system (MES) vendors are interested in complementing their portfolio of solutions,” said Buiza.

“The demands of their customers are important and having a solution such as Preactor, which is capable of being connected easily to any kind of system, is reassuring for both manufacturers and ERP and MES suppliers.”

“The Preactor model is based not only on having a flexible range of software that can be easily integrated with a company’s other systems such as ERP, but also on every user having access to accredited partners and Preactor staff worldwide,” said Mike Novels, CEO of Preactor Group. “This means Preactor users can rely on local support, in their own language and time zone.”
