Henning and P1ston enter agreement to offer supply chain workflow and visibility add-on for EstiTrack ERP.

The P1ston ERP add-on is a purchase order tracking and visibility module that replaces the spreadsheet-email patchwork fix that companies use to track open POs. The hybrid cloud solution is available immediately.

HUDSON, OH & SCHENECTADY, NY, June 20, 2022 — Henning Industrial Software, Inc. and P1ston, Inc. jointly announce their agreement to co-market and sell P1ston’s supply chain solution as an integrated add-on to Visual EstiTrack, Henning’s flagship ERP product. The add-on is a purchase order tracking and visibility module that replaces the spreadsheet-email patchwork fix that many companies use to track open orders. The EstiTrack-P1ston hybrid cloud solution is available immediately.

An early customer, David Dussault, Founder and CEO of Package One Industries, has seen promising results: “We’ve successfully relied on EstiTrack for well-over a decade as we’ve tripled the size of our contract manufacturing business.” He continued, “We use the P1ston add-on to make EstiTrack even more powerful, and we’re happy to report better on-time delivery, fewer surprise shortages, and lower costs.”

EstiTrack is used by small- to medium-sized job shops as well as precision machining, powdered metal, glass, tool and die, fabrication, distribution, assembly, and other industrial-related companies. It manages key internal operations and financial workflows, including estimating, sales orders, shop orders, time collection, job costing, visual scheduling, inventory management, purchasing, receiving, shipping, and invoicing.

P1ston increases visibility and reduces disruptions in mission critical B2B supply chains, starting with an industrial market focus on inbound raw materials, parts, and components. As a supplement to an ERP such as EstiTrack, solutions from P1ston manage workflows between customers and vendors.

“We are excited by the power of P1ston’s supply change management add-on. This complementary tool is intuitive and easy to use and truly enhances Visual EstiTrack’s capabilities by creating a real-time conduit between our ERP system and our customer’s suppliers. It streamlines communications with suppliers in a frictionless way by providing them with a simple email-based tool so suppliers can update PO status, delivery dates, and pricing without having to login to a customer portal,” said Rich Henning, Co-Founder and President of Henning Software. “The P1ston add-on delivers value to customers by providing a real-time view of on-time, late, and pending POs without the need to email or phone,” added PJ Bellomo, Co-Founder and CEO of P1ston.

Henning Software develops, licenses, and supports mission critical, evolutionary, operational, and financial management software to manufacturers and distributors that enable improved productivity, efficiency, and profitability. Henning Software’s software products include Visual EstiTrack ERP, Visual Book Accounting, Touch-Scheduling Board, and our Executive Dashboard. Their software essentially provides everything that a manufacturer needs to manage their entire company.

P1ston’s cloud-based solutions integrate to and supplement an ERP by managing workflows between customers and vendors. P1ston’s first release, the PO Tracking module, replaces the spreadsheet-email chaos that manufacturers and distributors use as a patchwork fix to manage their supply chains. P1ston’s automated workflows eliminate menial tasks, and the open order dashboard offers supply chain visibility in a simple, actionable user interface. File-sharing and chat functions enhance customer-vendor collaboration. Think real-time information, better decisions, and reduced cycle times, improving profitability for both customers and vendors.
