Here are just a few things our clients have had to say about their experience with the IMPAC® productivity system.

Nahm Sanitaryware Co., Ltd

As we have seen, the managers and supervisors have improved the control of their operations, and now have a much greater awareness of their performance. We are now able to better communicate goals through all levels of the company, plan our resources according to our real needs, follow-up to ensure the plan is executed and tackle all variances to plan. As a result of the reporting system installed and the key performance indicators tracked, our people are now very much focused on taking preventive and corrective action promptly.

As a result of the ACCESS Communication and Leadership training that has coincided with the installation of the Management Control System, we have noticed a positive change in the supervisors’ behaviors. The IMPAC team was worked very closely with our people throughout the process, to ensure a successful transfer of skills and methodology, ensuring ownership on the systems installed.

HID Corporation

I continually speak to both my staff’s about passion and “owning their work”, repeatedly asking them to treat the business as if it was theirs. I have used IMPAC as an example, a number of times, when speaking of passion.

IMPAC’s efforts go beyond the incredible hours they keep. The IMPAC team has worked its way into the fabric of my organizations and in both of them has become a trusted confidant of my managing staffs. This I believe is the true gift. My people bare their professional should to the IMPAC team members, out of wanting to be better and to make every effort to not disappoint them.

You should know that I was one of the three decision makers to bring IMPAC on board at HID. I was a bit of a skeptic. Two months into the implementation we purchased our biggest competitor, my first phone call was to IMPAC saying I wanted a team with me from day one to help me understand and scale the new business. IMPAC was there to insure a successful transition.

I am a true believer; your process has been a great lesson in the leadership of change.

Versowood Oy

Versowood started the creation and implementation of a new management system, together with IMPAC in the fall of 2004, with a goal of increasing productivity and improving the quality of products as well as the operations along the entire cycle.

Through the management system the operations in the different production unit has become more standardized, giving the organization the opportunity to operate uniformity.

A clear management system also provides the company with the tools for further development, either through expansion by corporate takeovers or through other organizational growth-tools.

Antara Steel Mills Sdn. Bhd.

An impressive show of professionalism was the flexibility of the IMPAC staff moving from air-conditioned room with suits to hot furnace area with blue foreman uniform. This has made my people on the floor feel very comfortable, creating a conducive atmosphere for major behavioral change.

I am seeing the combination of trained supervisors, procedural controls and systems, and Coordinators to take over the role of IMPAC after the conclusion of the project.

The above have resulted in savings achievements as committed by IMPAC in the installation areas so far and with two more installations to go, I am expecting further savings to fulfill my return on investment of at least in the neighborhood of 3 to1.
