Green Plains Otter Tail Location Picks MAPCON CMMS

Green Plains Renewable Energy company recently joined the MAPCON family. We welcome them as a new customer and thank them for their choice in maintenance management software. Otter Tail is a 60 million gallons per year (MMgy) plant located in Fergus Falls, MN. We are a good fit for Otter Tail as eight sister ethanol plants in five separate States currently use us as their CMMS. Another reason MAPCON CMMS is effective is because Otter Tail uses a good portion of the product. Not just for maintenance management, MAPCON is a versatile CMMS.

All Green Plains ethanol plants make effective use of purchasing, inventory, vendor relations and cost tracking. In Otter Tail's MRO environment, we are especially suited for a lean process where one software product is used across multiple departments for one common goal. The added use of our AP interface helps the controller by moving MAPCON transactions into their accounting software at a push of a button!

Green Plains Renewable Energy, Inc. headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska is the fourth largest ethanol producer in North America with an expected production of 740 MMgy from 9 plants across the U.S. We thank them again for putting one of the country's best maintenance software products in their "toolbox".
