Five reasons why your manufacturing business needs POET

POET on Desktop computer

Tom owns a small food manufacturing company.

At first, the business grew quickly end enjoyed several profitable years, but over the last twelve months productivity has fallen and growth has stalled.

Tom thinks he knows what the issues are that are holding his business back, but he doesn’t have the evidence to prove it.

And, as a busy business owner, he doesn’t have the time to look for it either.

What Tom needs is a digital solution that can capture and analyse production data for him, a tool that can help him prioritise and provide him with an action plan to help eliminate waste from the business.

Fortunately, such a solution exists in the form of POET, the award-winning cloud-based software platform from POET Systems.

Here are five reasons why Tom’s company – and your manufacturing business – needs POET:

1. It can unlock financial objectives
The main objective of any business is to make money. Tom’s business was making money but recently it stopped being profitable and now he wants to know why. With POET’s financial reporting dashboard Tom and his team can gain the insight they need to turn things around. The dashboard presents the loss across the manufacturing operation as a financial value, so the real opportunity that exists is visible to everybody in terms that nobody can fail to understand.

2. It involves everyone all the time
Tom might be the owner of his business but he can’t make a success of it alone. He knows that the solution to the problem has to involve the whole team. POET has been designed to ensure that it’s a tool that engages all levels of the business and workforce, from process operator to general manager. POET’s interactive comments tool ensures everybody has a voice 24/7.

3. It can be accessed anywhere at any time
As the owner of a business that trades internationally, Tom never knows where he might be from one month to the next. Making important decisions on the go is never easy, but sometimes it’s necessary. With POET, Tom and his senior management team can access vital business data in real time from anywhere in the world, at any time of the day or night, on any internet-enabled device.

4. It’s visual
We live in an increasingly data-driven world, in which we are constantly exposed to large amounts of information. For manufacturers, that data can be the key to really understanding how the business works and where efficiencies can be made. Often, the problem is not how much data you have, but making sense of it. POET offers a highly intuitive, easy-to-understand visual experience that helps businesses really understand their performance data.

5. It’s quick and easy to set up
Tom and his team are busy people, they don’t have the time to learn how to install and operate an entirely new software system. Thankfully, POET offers seamless integration across the entire business, with the team at POET on hand to guide them through the simple onboarding process. When you sign up to POET, our team will work with your team to populate the POET platform and customise your business metrics so you understand the opportunities that await.

With POET, Tom has found a tool that will engage the whole workforce, reduce downtime, improves performance and minimise waste. In just a short space of time, POET will help him to create a culture of continuous improvement with results that drop straight to the bottom line.
