Conception INTERAL Inc., also known as INTERAL, was founded in Quebec City in 1989, issued from specific automation development requests from Quebec companies.
As the years went by, with the experience acquired from its first contracts, INTERAL developed and launched PlanPro in 1996 and InventPro in 1997, which were two distinct applications that helped companies manage their maintenance and procurement activities.
PlanPro and InventPro were successful in Quebec, New Brunswick, Ontario and even in the United States. INTERAL then launched, in 2001, its IPMS application (INTERAL Production Management System), which was specialized in manufacturing production management.
In 2005, INTERAL launched a new application which combined PlanPro, InventPro and IPMS in one application, improving the user-friendliness of its software.
This new application, which is simply called INTERAL, contains the INTERAL Maintenance, INTERAL Procurement and INTERAL Production modules. These can be used separately or interactively.
Soon after, to meet growing demand, the Time management module was developed and added to the INTERAL interface.
Since 2009, the application is offered in « hosting » mode, making it available to more companies.
With time, INTERAL has innovated by listening to its customers. Today, its software is used in more than 400 companies on 4 continents. INTERAL has integrated bar code management, Web access and other complimentary features, making it even more user-friendly.
Moreover, INTERAL has developed unique applications for its clients’ specific needs, for example in geomatics and automation.
What does the future hold for INTERAL? That depends on its clients’ needs, current and future, and on technological advances.
INTERAL also has an international division, thanks to its subsidiary, INTERAL Technological Solutions Inc. With help from its long-time partner in Tunisia, INTERAL is present in this country with its sales and implementation office.
Furthermore, INTERAL has also developed partnerships with companies in Ontario, France and Senegal.
