Using SiteFlo to Consistently Apply Operating Procedures

Standard operating procedures are a must in technical environments to ensure that the behaviors exhibited by technical personnel and the interventions made in processes are consistent with product and organizational requirements.

Problem: Industry is challenged to train and mobilize an often transient workforce, and to ensure the consistent application of standard operating procedures site to site in accordance with internal, regulatory, or other third party requirements. Without SiteFlo, our customers cannot effectively manage personnel activity, or provide the appropriate real time aides to technicians to help manage complex workflow with real time activity based instructions.

Solution: SiteFlo is being implemented in a variety of industries to make it easier for technical personnel to accomplish work tasks and to report back to management on their activities. SiteFlo enabled technicians can view simple work instructions on a mobile device, accomplish their work tasks, submit data, and report back to management all on one screen.

By providing technical personnel with SiteFlo, organizations get insight into employee behaviour and whether or not it is in accordance with operating procedures. Sharing that behavioural based data throughout an organization in real-time provides powerful insight not currently available with existing solutions. Management can easily identify Root causes of issues, and technical personnel can be held accountable.

Benefits:

  • Meet and exceed operating procedure requirements.
  • Significantly reduced operating costs with the ability to identify personnel, team, and shift issues that ultimately affect plant efficiency and output.
  • Standardization of employee behavior in multiple plants with different operating conditions.
  • 30% time savings associated with digitizing what is currently a paper based process.

Using SiteFlo to Create High Performance Teams

Optimizing the performance of individual technicians, shifts, and roles in technical environments is difficult without appropriate data on employee behavior and shift performance.

Problem: Retrieving analytics on technicians behaviour and activities in manufacturing environments is nearly impossible for plant management given the dynamic nature of a technicians or operators role and the lack of suitable technical tools. Insight into the day-to-day activities of employees is required, and needs to be aggregated on a per shift or role basis to optimize teams in a way that maximizes productivitity and drives profit.

Solution: SiteFlo is being implemented in a variety of industries to monitor personnel activities and provide analytics on groups so management can optimize teams within their operation, while similtaneously troubleshooting critical personnel issues. The activities of a SiteFlo enabled technician can be tracked by management, providing real-time aggregated or disaggregated insight into employee behaviour and whether or not it is in accordance with expectations. Root causes of issues can be easily identified by management, and technical personnel can be held accountable.

Benefits:

  • Create high performance teams on a shift-by-shift basis.
  • Step percentage increases in efficiency and reductions in operating costs (which can correlate with $1M savings in medium sized plants).
  • Ease of management of large technical teams, and an increase in available time on the production floor for supervisors and management.
  • Clear identification of employees who do not behave in accordance with operating procedures.

Using SiteFlo to Make Safer Food

SiteFlo customers are using our solution to meet, HACCOP, SQF (Safe Quality Food), BRC (British Retail Council) and GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) requirements

Problem: Currently, additional human resources are being used in attempts to effectively manage the volume of data and personnel activity required to meet stringent food safety requirements, often increasing  production costs related to training, inputting data and maintaining compliance records, with limited returns.

Solution: SiteFlo software is being implemented in a variety of food and beverage industries to track employee activity and data required to meet SQF, BRC GAP, and other regulatory requirements.  With SiteFlo, personnel involved in compliance activity can be tracked and traced down to the time, date, and result of the observation and inspection.

By combining data on employee behaviors with inspection-based data, and sharing it throughout an organization in real-time, the SiteFlo product provides insight not currently available with existing solutions. Management can easily identify root causes of issues and technical personnel can be held accountable when required.

Benefits:

  • Reduced risk of losing critical contracts with large retailers by having the ability to address both personnel and production issues simultaneously and immediately
  • Enhance your position by exceeding requirements when sourcing new business opportunities
  • 30% technician and management time savings associated with digitizing what is currently a paper based process
  • Ease of the internal and third party auditing process
  • Improved isolation of compromised product
