20%+ Less Time on Jobs within 3 months Target, 40%+ Less Time on Jobs within 6 months Target

New Age Caravans currently employ 153 workshop staff.

Previously we had no time on jobs information, so we had no technology.  Using touch screens on the workshop floor and Empower Workshop Productivity & Scheduling Software with real time reporting of jobs, parts of jobs and individual staff we are now a high technology business. 

Industry 4.0, Lean Manufacturing, Digital Manufacturing and Advanced Manufacturing necessitates using touch screens on the workshop floor and the likes of Empower Workshop Productivity & Scheduling Software.

Using Empower our workshop staff culture has quickly changed to be time and job focused.  We are eliminating slippage in key areas and getting significant gains in many areas on the workshop floor.  I expect that within 3 months we will achieve a 20% minimum reduction in labour times on jobs therefore a 20% reduction in labour cost on jobs and at 6 months we will get to 40%+ reduction in labour times on jobs therefore 40%+ reduction in labour cost on jobs”.
