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

Novorossiysk Commercial Seaport JSC.

IMPAC 10000 system implementation has helped OVM supervisors to enhance their ability to plan and distribute maintenance jobs in a accordance with certain priorities, gave an opportunity to control jobs done effectively, eliminate lost time and take timely corrective actions if problems arise, as well as streamline report – actions taken relationship.

As a result of work completed, enhanced control, measures aimed at lost time elimination we were able to better define workloads and get a productivity improvement of 23%.

Together with IMPAC specialists we have developed the project of major mechanization restructuring. The scheme that takes into consideration maintenance specifics will benefit us in the following ways:

  • major improvement in communication between mechanization and maintenance areas and cargo areas and other port departments
    - considerably decrease payroll costs (40% on average)
  • higher efficiency of the work and considerable downtime decrease
  • shorter response time

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.

Mayora Indah, Pt.

During the last several months IMPAC did a professional job in interfacing with our employees, in particular our supervisory personnel in the areas of Production, PPIC, Quality Control and Engineering. We feel that your Access Communications program workshops where our supervisory as well as mid-management have learned important skills in supervision. The training given has motivated them to supervise better and IMPAC has given them better capabilities to plan, control and follow-up their area.

We saw the improvement in the production as well as maintenance system, the supervisor’s receptiveness to changes and in incorporating and applying a system to their jobs.

Since we now have the systems and a significant change in attitude and behavior of the team, I am fully confident that we will reach corporate goals.

The results of the past 10 months showed that the installation of IMPAC Implementation program successfully activated a transparent system enabling a better understanding and follow-up responsibilities.

Our supervisors and managers were able to utilize performance indexes to measure and confront low performance. They have become enthusiastic and proactive in achieving their responsibilities.

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.

  • locals at the manager level have began to take initiatives to take steps for solving the problems in their areas on their own
  • Operators are more aware about lost time related to productivity
  • Operators and management are mutually working together to create a better working environment.
