Loving Life in the Long Tail

Visual Enterprise is perfect for manufacturing in the long tail.

Chris Anderson may have popularized the term Long Tail ( From Long Tail: Why the Future of Business is Selling Less of More ), but most Visual Enterprise users have been living in it for a long time. As used by Anderson, long tail refers to selling small volumes of niche or customized products to a demanding set of customers. This is the very description of the low-volume, high-mix manufacturing environment in which most companies that run Visual operate.

The future is here. It's just not widely distributed yet.
-- William Gibson

I have years of experience in helping manufacturers leverage Visual Manufacturing's features like highly flexible product definitions, ad-hoc job creation and support for complex scheduling scenarios to do business in the long tail. Using these tools effectively is not for the faint of heart. Visual is a powerful solution for successfully managing a manufacturing business, but like any powerful tool it requires knowledge, training and thoughtful application to be effective.

I am Kurt B. Carr and I have years of experience in teaching companies how to use Visual Enterprise as a tool to operate effectively and achieve success. Call (941.776.3830) or email me today to learn how I can help you use Visual to win in the long run.
