INDIANAPOLIS, July 7, 2010 – Consona Corporation (Consona), a worldwide leader in providing customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP) software and services for companies of all sizes, today announced the release of Intuitive Version 8.5, an ERP software solution focused on streamlining operations for small and mid-market manufacturers. Available immediately, Intuitive v8.5 includes a number of enhancements and new functionalities, which center on a continued investment in Intuitive’s .NET architecture to improve all data entry forms.
This new version of Intuitive underwent a very successful and comprehensive Beta testing program before becoming generally available. Intuitive v8.5 Beta was implemented at Pleora Technologies Inc., a Kantana, Ontario based provider of high-performance imaging data and video over Ethernet for military, medical, and manufacturers around the world. Pleora pioneered the use of Gigabit Ethernet for real-time video connectivity and revolutionized industrial imaging. With this spirit of innovation, Pleora engineers networked video connectivity solutions for mission-critical applications. Working with its rich portfolio of video networking elements, Pleora partners with customers to tailor solutions to their individual needs, from definition to deployment, with full integration support.
“Having the opportunity to participate in the Beta program allowed us to ensure that our requirements were addressed in the upgrade to 8.5,” said Jeremy MacDonald, IT specialist, Pleora Technologies. “The project management was excellent and Consona was able to get answers to any issues we had in a timely and efficient manner. We look forward to continue working with Consona in future releases.”
Intuitive v8.5 builds on the product’s proven capabilities for improving productivity, reducing costs and maintaining overall customer satisfaction with a variety of new and enhanced functionalities as well as multiple customer-requested enhancements. Additional improvements included in v8.5 cover physical inventory and purchased item costing operations, allowing for automated updates of standards based on historical averages.
Several new optional modules to v8.5 are also available: the Intuitive Form Wizard, which allows for greater customization of data entry forms, and the Shop Floor Manager v1.3, which improves the management of load and labor data, enhances material shortage visibility and automates updates of standard routing information based on historical averages. Each module adds greater control, efficiency and improvements to internal business processes.
“Intuitive ERP has historically been a popular choice in the market, especially since its .NET-managed technology was introduced in 2007,” said Frank O’Nell, vice president of product management for Consona’s ERP division. “Now, as we build out the product with new functionality and include customer–driven enhancements, we will continue to draw new customers who want to make their manufacturing operations more efficient, more productive and cost-effective.”
