Company Profile

Henning Industrial Software, Inc. was founded in 1990 by Billie and Richard G. Henning after they recognized the need for practical and affordable manufacturing software by small to medium job shops. Billie's strong manufacturing background combined with Rich Henning's strong computer software development background created a perfect match for creating their software line, Visual EstiTrack? . Their initial target market and product release was directed at the screw machine industry due to Billie's screw machine shop background. Visual EstiTrack has since matured to support many other types of industries such as powdered metal, glass, tool & die, fabricating, etc. Rich spent his formative years developing software and providing long-range information systems planning for Ernst & Young (accounting firm), and the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic Foundation. This was all during the time that personal computers were just beginning to change the ways in which people do business. He was there in the old days when mainframes were "in", and participated in the client/server revolution. Henning Software has grown from a one-user DOS program, to a multi-user, objected-oriented Windows® environment, capable of supporting multiple workstations in large manufacturing facilities. Henning Software provides high quality software development services to a wide variety of small and large corporations. As an applications development and information system consulting company with every developer exceeding 25 years of experience, we have created custom solutions using the most advanced and current applications development technology. The company's experience spans many different markets, including the development of large-scale applications and products for the manufacturing, healthcare, financial and funeral home industries. If our off-the-shelf solutions don't meet your every need, our analysts and programmers will be happy to create customized solutions that fulfill your specific needs. All of our applications are characterized by user-friendly screens and focus on efficiency to make the systems serve you, make your job easier and your day more productive. The bottom line is to enable you to use your new system as a competitive advantage over your competition.

Estimating Software Uses .NET Technology

Three Divisions Under One Shop Management Program
Instead of buying multiple software packages to perform the distinctly different functions of its three separate divisions, Mt. Vernon Machine & Tool Inc. (Mt. Vernon, Ohio) selected just one package.

Wireless Technology Enhances Data Collection
Wireless devices allow shop personnel to communicate with the Internet and other computer networks without being physically attached by cables. This freedom makes shopfloor data collection more efficient.

Shop Reduces Paperwork With Shop Management Software
With two mechanical engineers, this small shop accepts not only contract jobs, but the shop will 'take anything--from an idea needing design work, to production jobs or reverse engineering from a part.

Software Brings Better Control of Manufacturing Data
Like many businesses, this fitting manufacturer eagerly embraced new computer technology as it became available. But by the mid-1990s, its eight computers ran on three separate networks, based on operating system compatibility.

Software Keeps Jobs On Track
Two employees of this aerospace shop began gathering information on shop management software systems. Their year-long search culminated in a visit to the 1998 IMTS tradeshow, where they found this software solution.

Gradual Software Implementation Allows Users To Find Comfort Zone
Big shops may have the financial resources and personnel to change the way they do business almost overnight when they make changes in their information systems. However, at this small shop, that was not the approach shop management took to automation.

Shop Management Software Allows For More Effective Operations
The management at Alger Manufacturing knew it needed a new shop management system. Even with customization, the shop management package it had been using was inadequate. The company's management team knew it would have to make some changes, including upgrades for the hardware and support software, both in the offices and on the shop floor to accommodate the new system.

Littlestar Plastics, Inc. located in Machesney Park, Illinois, has been providing CNC-machined plastic components to the electrical, food processing and equipment manufacturing industries since 1992.
