ITESM

The project was focused on three installation areas within the Campus: Purchase, Energy and the Maintenance sections of the General Service area. During the project systems have been installed which allow us to have a better control on the operations. This control, together with specific savings program has come along with a process efficiency in the various aspects of warehousing, purchasing, energy consumption, cleaning and gardening.

I want to point out that the results have been obtained in direct collaboration with our personnel of the supervisory and management level, without affecting our operations and with a minimum additional investment.

Silja Line

With the support from IMPAC, we have been able to install a Management System which enables detailed control of the operation. The Management System provides the management with relevant information for efficient utilization of the Sales organization in Silja Line Skandinavien. The System has been installed in Phone Booking, Ticket offices, Teminals, Marketing and in Sales Promotion departments.

Your management training, supplied by your team, has raised the skills level of our supervisors and managers to a point that enables them to solve problems and manage their areas more effectively. This increased our ability to identify and realize opportunities at each sales point.

SHARP

As Japanese, what IMPAC did for the last 10 months during the project, is the most basic things to do but despite the method we had before the project, if Japanese implemented the project it will not as we don’t understand the mindset and behavior of the local people. And after 10 months of the project, I can see that this project has become successful, and in this 10 months, the change on working attitude is happening among leader and group leader. I also see operators working faster than before.

IMPAC has opened a hole in the big wall which is barrier to change, and IMPAC has prepared system and coordinators (people) to demolish the wall.

I will recommend IMPAC to other companies to experience the benefits which I had and will continue to gain.

Paglieri Sell System

The management systems have been changed, there have been changes in the planning procedures and in the methods of evaluating results.

We achieved good results in the warehouse operations and in labour savings. These results have consolidated and they keep improving.

In 2006 we started another, more difficult, project with IMPAC, with the goal of improving the productivity, and therefore reducing the costs, of the merchandisers organization that refills the supermarkets all over Italy.

We’re achieving very good results and there are signs that show additional improvements.
