What got us started
In the laundry industry the answer to that question has to do with cost control, which comes down to production execution, because in laundries a large part of the total cost of operation is determined by the daily planning and execution on the shop floor.
It turns out that the “15% performers” are extremely focused on, and extremely good at execution. Being in full control of the flow means being in full control of the costs. Cost optimisation is flow optimisation.
In most laundries the flow depends on the people who, on a daily basis, are orchestrating the efforts in the laundries. To replicate the results of the “15% performers” means to replicate their execution decisions.
That’s what we did.
We have spent 3 years on developing a “laser cutting optimisation”-like software for the entire laundry operation, that replicates the best flow decisions of the best laundry managers, and predicts the outcome of these decisions – before they are made.
In a mature, “red ocean” industry, true competitive edge is hard to come by. We deliver on that promise.
