Company Profile

Quick Tour

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.
