The nMetric team has one guiding principle: make the job of scheduling easier, less time consuming and more productive.
We are a scheduling and task management software developer with patents on the Smart Job style of dynamic scheduling. Our founders and management team have background in manufacturing and a passion for helping turn high-mix, chaotic production environments into more manageable and profitable ones.
nMetric is very different from other scheduling software systems. It doesn’t schedule a person, a machine or a vehicle. It schedules resources based on required attributes – the combination of capabilities and specifications needed to complete a given task efficiently and on time. So any resource with the needed attributes and time availability can be used, for the greatest possible scheduling flexibility.
In addition, while other solutions use optimization algorithms based on specific goals, nMetric uses heuristics and probability. This gives our software the ability to adapt to change, complexity and real-time events that could otherwise derail the schedule.
nMetric is currently provided as an integrated enterprise solution — and will soon be offered as a web-based SaaS (software as a service) — making it practical for companies of any size. If you use ERP software or other legacy systems to manage demand, nMetric has partnered with Talend to create our nTegrator™ methodology enabling easy-to-implement integration with existing systems to enable two-way communication of relevant data.
