Lilly Software Associates Offers President’s Challenge:
Lilly Software Stands Behind Software with Money-Back Guarantee
02 March 2004, Hampton, NH (USA) — Lilly Software Associates announces that Richard Lilly has issued a President’s Challenge: if customers do not meet performance objectives set forth within the first 180 days of implementing VISUAL Easy Lean™, they will receive a full refund on the software portion of the product. VISUAL Easy Lean is Lilly Software’s fast-implementing scheduling method that works with VISUAL Enterprise™ to support the principles of Lean Manufacturing.
“With VISUAL Easy Lean, we have helped several companies increase revenues on average by 10%, decrease lead-times by as much as 90%, shrink inventory by 50% and enabled customers to achieve over 90% on-time delivery,” says Scott Rich, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Lilly Software Associates. “Based on the feedback from our customers and the results we’ve seen, Lilly Software believes in the capability of this solution, and we are willing to stand behind it with a money-back guarantee.”
Lilly Software’s Throughput Improvement Services Group is ready to help companies implement VISUAL Easy Lean and gain the necessary training to meet the President’s Challenge. Through training, CEO commitment, and regularly scheduled progress meetings, companies adjust their scheduling techniques to pull materials through the shop. The Protected Pull Methodology in Lilly’s solution uses market demand as the trigger for releasing material and setting priorities on the shop floor. This keeps inventory levels low and the ability to respond to customers high. When implemented in good faith, the methodology behind VISUAL Easy Lean can help companies improve lead times and delivery.
“Manufacturers are working hard to hold onto their market share in the face of increasing sales competition,” explains Rich. “Our experienced implementation team works with customers to help them incorporate operational measurements and scheduling techniques that allow them to successfully overcome market constraints. With VISUAL Easy Lean, companies can significantly decrease lead-times and recognize profitable opportunities.”
