nMetric to help resolve persistent challenges in Kaplan Professional Education

February 9, 2016

COSTA MESA, CA – nMetric, developer of patented real-time scheduling software for complex manufacturing environments, recently announced the signing of a deal with Kaplan Professional Education. nMetric Smarter Scheduling will help resolve persistent challenges in Kaplan’s scheduling of activities required to bring new educational products to market. “We have always believed that our Smarter Scheduling software could address scheduling challenges beyond the manufacturing shop floor. We’re excited for this opportunity to prove our capabilities in Kaplan’s multi-project environment,” stated Chris Koski, nMetric’s CEO. Kaplan’s processes include the need to schedule in real-time activities including content creation, editing, graphical design, and more. These activities require Kaplan to juggle hundreds of projects across highly skilled, constrained resources such as writers and editors, and to optimize the scheduling of other key personnel, who may not have full-time availability. nMetric’s Smarter Scheduling® software will help streamline these processes for all parties involved.
