A new way of working - better for employees and better for business
The shop floor modernization project proved a win-win-win for the IT team, employees, and the company as a whole.
As the IT team retired legacy systems, the company realized an initial $1 million cost reduction – which it expects will grow year-over-year. Moving to a serverless, cloud-native architecture has also freed IT from the burden of maintaining on-premises infrastructure.
Shop floor employees now have a one-stop shop for operations. Every process has been redesigned to reduce the number of steps, clicks, and screens involved. Consolidated data and actionable insights are now presented to employees on a single screen in a format that's easy to understand. As a result, employee satisfaction increased along with a 20% boost to shift productivity and a 35% boost to overall shop floor productivity.
With standardized processes across sites, the company has a single source of truth to continuously uncover and act upon data-driven insights. These insights will improve year-over-year cycle times and process improvements.
Moving forward – thanks to the platform – the company will retire the existing applications and migrate more processes to the cloud. With this modernization and simplification, productivity continues to reach new heights with cloud.
