We had a great meeting with John Grima from Lynq Limited on June 24th at Multivans.

Thanks again to Multivans for hosting!

John demonstrated Visual Production Planning and Scheduling as well as Workforce Management (Labour Tracking).

There were some great questions asked and good interactive discussions among users who are considering these products for their business and those already using it.

We filled the rest of John's visit with in-depth site visits, demos and staff training.

Tom also took John on an adventurous tour of the region! Here's a photo of John at the Hamilton Warplane Museum!



The Harvest Ventures team is excited to be working with some new clients - a service company in the financial industry and a manufacturer in the transportation industry.

In addition, we have been seeing a significant interest in upgrades to Exact Macola 10 and have been busy with several existing clients getting them upgraded to the latest version.

One thing businesses of any size need to keep in mind is that Macola is no longer just accounting and manufacturing software. It spans your entire organization as one solution.

We've been saying this for a long time and businesses are starting to really embrace it now.

If you are considering an upgrade, we would like you to consider the benefits of a business wide solution and also know that staff from all departments should be involved at various stages of the implementation to optimize your use of the software. A clear plan on both sides is required for success.

Questions? Please ask, we're happy to help!
