Software Business Support Products of User Solutions, Inc.

User Solutions, Inc. was founded in 1991 to fulfill the genuine need for lower cost, easy to learn and use software solutions for the manufacturing and operations management markets. The core management group transitioned from Lotus Development Corporation where they had managed the Lotus Manufacturing Marketing vertical segment.

While the senior management team was at Lotus, they discovered an opportunity for marketing spreadsheet "add-on" solutions (also called "templates") for manufacturing; a pre-built spreadsheet application that had powerful analysis routines and instant reports already setup for decision support. While most manufacturing managers were already using the spreadsheet to communicate basic manufacturing information, they did not have the time or skills to develop the
models that were necessary to make key decisions about planning and scheduling.
