Challenges

With over two million publication copies processed for delivery every week to over 10,000 local market retailers, Acculogix needs their labour resources to run effectively and efficiently. In a province that has a fluctuating workforce and unemployment as low as 2.6 percent, the company needs to be able to manage the labour shortage through improved productivity. Acculogix needed a solution that would help them optimize their labour utilization, balance workloads and control costs.

What Acculogix needed was a solution that could:

  • Measure costs by tying real-time workforce data to their production management system
  • Streamline time management processes to reduce payroll errors and save time
  • Identify attendance concerns allowing managers to focus time on the right people
“Kronos was a strong participant in our being able to improve order assembly operating costs by 30 percent.”
