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

ABB

The change process was extremely quick. This process took only seven months to materialize.

The new control systems and management reports were created at the factory plant by IMPAC in conjunction with ABB management, these are now the foundations that will help us prepare for a more competitive market.

Carlos DomingoManaging Director ABB Metron, S.A.ABB

NESTLE

We, in Nestle Norway thus engaged Impac and commissioned them to fine-comb the whole of our organization, i.e. three factories and our head-office/ sales organizations. The work was concluded and the result achieved-obviously varying somewhat from place to place-not only achieved our expectations, but even surpassed them in most instances.

In our work with Impac, we discovered that your organization basically is a system or tool-probably currently the best one on the market-which helps the customers to achieve the desired results with regard to productivity and efficiency.

 The training of our mid-and supervisory management, the training of internal coordinators, the sensibilisation of the management team as well as the continued follow-up from Impac’s side have all contributed to that extend.

 Concluding I ought also to mention that in our case Impac’s engagement led to a situation where we could maintain production volumes with roughly 30% less resources used.

Karn Corn Co., Ltd.

With the support and guidance by IMPAC, we were established our company goals and expectations, and rolled it down to all management levels. The improved management system helped supervisors to control operations at the point of execution. Furthermore, the installed controls made our people more aware of the cost implications of lost time, rejects and scrap, thus making them proactive in addressing such problems.

The financial benefits generated during the program were impressive. We got back a return on investment 325%.

Latinusa, Pt. (Krakatau Steel Group)

As for the results, it is quite obviously seen and felt in our bottom-line. As in any business prone to mood swings in the market, we too had our fair share of up and down moments but in the end I can say we had achieved the set targets of 100 % payback in pocket and an annualized savings of 300 % by end of the project.

I am very satisfied with the behavior change of my people.

I have personally benefitted from going through this IMPAC project. I now know it is possible to measure performance at the point of execution through selective key performance indicators.

Pahala Kencana, Pt.

IMPAC has delivered tremendous improvement in productivity by increasing number of buses available by 20 %, starting week 6 instead of week 10 of the project as promised.

In addition, I can see obviously behavior change of key persons within our organization on supervisor and manager level. They now understand the important aspect of their daily business tasks in order to get the job done.

The achievement that we have reached is considerably excellent.
