Turning 'Efficiency Bleeds' into 'Productivity Gains'
Bacton (Suffolk), UK – 21st May 2012. Wheatley Associates, the leading provider of mobile workforce scheduling and efficiency software solutions, has published a new white paper that discusses how to turn the ‘Efficiency Bleeds’ inherent in skills-based mobile workforce management and scheduling processes into positive ‘Productivity Gains’.
Entitled “Identifying Efficiency Bleeds in Mobile Workforce Scheduling and Management Processes”, the white paper is authored by Lisa Norris, Wheatley Associates’ Managing Director. Copies of the white paper can be downloaded from the Wheatley Associates website at: http://www.wheatley-associates.co.uk/Home/Thought-leadership/White-Paper---Efficiency-Bleed.
“All organisations need to run lean these days. The economic climate pretty much demands it. And organisations with skills-based mobile and field workforces are certainly no exception,” says Lisa Norris, Managing Director of Wheatley Associates. “In order to ensure positive, ongoing business outcomes, the search for efficiency improvements needs to be continuous. But the process is never easy. Rarely, if ever, is there scope for making big efficiency gains in any one area of a business. However, considerable advantage can be gained by accumulating smaller efficiencies across a business as a whole.”
The white paper examines the background to and key areas of potential Efficiency Bleeds and details how significant improvements can be made by accumulating multiple marginal gains. It details how to find Efficiency Bleeds through a hypothetical scenario of an organisation with a 100-strong mobile workforce and ultimately how to address them. Wheatley Associates is a leader in driving inefficiencies out of businesses. Its capabilities have been formalised within the context of its ‘Efficiency Bleed’ consultancy services and its recommendations can be implemented using its GRASP mobile workforce automated scheduling and management software.
“With our unique mix of product, implementation, consultancy and market expertise, we can offer customers with skills-based mobile workforces valuable insights into how they can improve their scheduling processes, pinpoint areas of inefficiency and establish change management policies to address them,” concludes Lisa Norris.
