Fonterra realizes $3.08 million in savings creating a mobilized maintenance workforce

Mobilized Maintenance Workforce

Watch this short video!

A mobilized maintenance workforce starts with the right tools. But with the growing mindset of doing more with less, it also means measuring real ROI to justify the right tools. With a constant need to reduce fixed costs of Labor in Manufacturing, the typical response is to keep reducing budgets and see what happens from there.

Fonterra shows us how technology can enable you to beat the cost curve and tackle innovation head-on. Listen as Chuck Norris shares how they measure ROI and how to build the business case based on a Strategy of Maintenance Labour Improvement (Tool Time).  See, how just from launching their pilot, Fonterra saved $3.08 million. The user data against the non-use control they got from their early pilot shows the ROI Fonterra is receiving with the help of our partner Zag utilizing Neptune Software’s low-code rapid application development platform, Neptune DXP.
