One of the largest apparel manufacturers from Sri Lanka turned to GPS company KLOUDIP, a partner of Gurtam, with a problem of optimizing the planning system of production and transport departments. It was necessary to monitor employees in 14 factories located in Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and India. The number of workers at each factory varied from 300 to 3,000, the employees lived in the neighborhood and arrived at their work on the special buses.
KLOUDIP has selected a plant with 300 workers for implementing the test solution. The following components were used: Wialon + WiaTag + NimBus + NFC tags.
The following results were achieved by the apparel manufacturer during the using of Wialon-based pilot solution:
The company adheres to the production schedule and distributes the amount of work between working shifts rationally. The prompt action is taken immediately if there is not enough staff at the moment. This helps to avoid material losses because there is no downtime in apparel manufacturing anymore.
The transport routes and their distribution by districts were optimized according to the number of passengers. It saves drivers time and fuel, improves the usability of transport for factory workers.
Now it is possible to calculate the average time the workers spend on the road. If the employee lives far from the factory, it would be more profitable to provide him with the hostel facilities; it this way the company reduces the cost of delivering employees to work.
The client’s HR department in the head office uses Wialon for calculating staff attendance. The data received enables the client to make decisions that increase discipline in the workplace.
