Monthly Integrator Spotlight

Effective Management of Facilities Large and Small

ESE Inc., the Engineering Solutions Experts, recently became a ThinManager Platinum Integrator after a number of successful, large scale deployments.  When we initially contacted ESE, their Director of Manufacturing Information Systems John Tertin stated, “This is going to be the new standard, and ThinManager is part of that standard.  Going forward, ThinManager will be employed wherever the SE system goes.”  Apparently, John wasn’t kidding because when we checked in with him again, he had another successful integration story to share with us.
