With your existing investment in Microsoft Dynamics, improving your order turnaround times and cutting manufacturing costs has never been easier. You can easily improve your planning and scheduling process by “plugging in” PlanetTogether, the leading production planning and scheduling tool for Microsoft Dynamics. Built from the bottom up in the .NET Framework, Microsoft’s flagship architecture, PlanetTogether is the best choice for a complete, integrated Microsoft-based planning and scheduling solution.   But the questions are sure to be asked: how do I know that I’m ready for a PlanetTogether APS implementation?  What sort of information does the APS require from NAV?
