Peppertree Furniture – Nov 2012

Monitoring factory production from Las Vegas (Adelaide, SA, Australia)

“While dividing his time between the factory, his retail outlet, visiting interstate clients and travelling overseas, Mark Tozer finds his Empower time tracking software keeps him in touch with everything. 

As owner of the Peppertree Furniture manufacturing business I saw the writing on the wall over 10 years ago, having to compete with increasing local competition and ever increasing volumes of imported goods from China coming onto our market,” said Mark. “It was clear that I needed quickly to get my factory highly efficient, and I needed to maintain 100% factory productivity on a daily basis or I would not remain in business…Empower time tracking software, purchased now over three years ago, has enabled me, with the same factory staff and same weekly hours worked, to increase our weekly production by just on 100%. That is, with the same staff I have doubled my production. “As MD I am actively involved in viewing our factory productivity screens and reports on Empower every day”.
