Aker Engineering

We entered into cooperation with IMPAC in order to develop a more efficient organization, especially through improved first line management and supervision. Special attention has been given to our staff functions and the resource allocation and planning in our engineering disciplines.

Throughout the project we have developed new and improved systems and practices for day-to-day planning and follow-up, and our supervisors have been trained to support this in the future.

Further, we have taken an important step forward in the quality of personnel planning. We have also developed methods for initiating preventing actions to avoid extensive ad hoc work.

GIGANTE

I would like to take this opportunity to inform you of the successful implementation of your Energy and Maintenance Program.

The cumulative weekly Energy savings have been accomplished at 180% level from the initial savings projection. These results are only from the first 25 stores in the scope, and will increase by installing all Gigante stores in Mexico, Guadalajara, Monterrey and Baja California regions.

The Gigante-Impac project is a major improvements process in our store operations. The above results have been achieved through continuous training of the personnel, and the behavior change towards greater cost awareness achieved without any capital investment of Gigante.

Chemopetrol

For the evaluation of this project Chemopetrol-Impac I do not need high flying phrases. Let the numbers speak themselves: 350 million CzK increase in profit. Problems with cashflow are history and accounts receiveable decrease reached 3500 million CzK. Part of it is because of market refreshment in petrochemical products, but largly it is a result of the new management systems and change of peoples approach. And especially here IMPAC has played a fundamental role.

 Your team was definitely distinguished from the other consultancy companies by depth of solution of problems, ability to work with real figures, problems and people. The persistency of your specialists resulted in a change of behavior of our people from “this is imposible” towards “how can we do it”.
