How To: Train your staff so there are less mistakes & faster production times

Many managers can agree that well trained employees are critical to having a business that runs smoothly. Training employees helps to ensure that they know the ins and outs of their job.  Ideally, doing this creates less mistakes and rework, and faster production times in your crews.  However, training has downsides as well.  Having a training system in place can be inconvenient when employee turnover happens.  Employees cannot be relied on to stick around forever; often times they leave or get promoted, and then the process has to start all over again.  Not only does it take a lot of time, but also can be costly.

ETS systems are the solution to ending the cycle of training employees.  All of our systems use smartphone technology- technology which many employees already know how to use, and embrace in their personal lives.  Having these systems in place means that the amount of time you need to spend training employees is minimal. All ETS systems are completely paperless, and have electronic sensors that are constantly working in the background of your operations.  This eliminates the possibility of human error in your operations.

Organization of equipment is a procedure that varies from company to company.  Proper equipment procedures are often time consuming to teach, and mistakes are easy to make.  When the proper protocol is not followed when organizing equipment items can go missing or be forgotten.  Not only does this cause frustration, but it also diminishes profits due to the fact that employees are not able to devote their full attention to the job.

Invisi-Tag is a mobile app that acts as an electronic checklist.  It works by keeping an automatic inventory of every item in a truck or in the warehouse.  In the app you are able to assign jobs and responsibilities to each employee.  Having an Invisi-Tag system in place will increase productivity while decreasing mistakes of your employees. 

First, crews will be faster when unloading and loading vehicles.  This will increase productivity at job sites, ensuring more quality work. With Invisi-Tag, employees will also understand that there is no way tools will be forgotten or stolen; thus, they will be held accountable if equipment goes missing. Invisi-Tag can act as an incentive system for employees as well.  Since all of the guesswork of checking equipment is eliminated, employees will be able to focus on completing each job quickly. You can use this as an incentive for them to leave earlier in the day, and in turn reducing your payroll costs.

The way companies track equipment is another aspect of operations that requires training of employees.  Not only is it time consuming, but also there is much room for error.  Tracking expensive equipment can be difficult due to the fact that if there is not a good system in place, employees will have to waste valuable time searching for missing equipment.

Senal Geo Tracking is a GPS tracking device that is constantly working in the background of your operations.  Senal virtually eliminates the possibility of your expensive tools and equipment going missing.  Instead of training employees on unreliable procedures that can still be affected by human error, Senal requires almost no training, and there is no room for human error.  This way, employees can spend more time doing their jobs, and you will be able to spend less time and money training them.

Keeping track of important equipment information is critical to making sure your machines are running properly and efficiently at all times. Being able to service your equipment correctly and on time benefits your company by being able to maintain production rates. Yet, it can sometimes be a challenge for employees to understand which information is important and when.  Training employees on this is not only time consuming, but expensive. If something goes wrong with a piece of equipment employees usually end up having to search through piles of papers for warranty details.  Plus, since it is difficult to train employees, technicians may not be experts at knowing when equipment is due for maintenance.

Sigilo Fleet Management is a mobile app that allows you to store all equipment information on your mobile device.  This app is easy to use and simplifies equipment management, in addition to the fact that there is no training required, a no room for human error.  It can store information such as maintenance history, repair history, and warranty information all in an electronic file format. Employees and technicians will have access to equipment history at all times.



How does higher sales volume mean reduced costs?

Providing low prices for your customers is an important part of having a competitive pricing structure.  Having lower prices will draw in more customers, which in turn will increase your profits.   Being able to do this relies on your ability to reduce overhead, and increase employee productivity.  Spending less money on overhead means it costs less to do a job.  Increasing employee productivity will allow your crews to complete jobs more quickly; thus, allowing you to take on more jobs and increase your profits.

The cost to your company to complete a job significantly decreases with the use of ETS systems.  ETS provides you with equipment tracking software available on your smartphone.  This is technology that your employees already use and embrace in their personal lives, significantly reducing training costs; employee productivity is increased right from the start.

Forgotten equipment is a major cause for frustration in many companies.  Getting all the way to a job site before realizing you forgot something, and then needing to turn around is a waste of valuable time.  Productivity can be lost when there is not a good system in place to track equipment.  If important equipment goes missing then there is usually no choice but to have employees stop what they are doing to search for them.  It significantly reduces the output of crews, which in turn affects the quality of their work, and the satisfaction of your customers.  You will not be able to complete as many jobs if your employees need to waste time tracking equipment.

Invisi-Tag is an innovative system that provides your crews with an electronic checklist.  The electronic checklist is available on a smartphone or tablet, which many employees already know how to use. With our mobile app, the crew will be able to see all items on the truck before they leave, as well as items that are not there (or are there that aren’t supposed to be).   Senal Geo Tracking is a mobile GPS tracking system available on your smartphone.  It can be used to track any important tool or piece of equipment. Senal’s sensors are constantly working in the background, so you always know where your valuable equipment and machines are.  Crews will no longer lose time on a job from being unable to locate and track critical tools and equipment.

Having to worry about making emergency purchase decisions when your equipment breaks down can be frustrating, and an unnecessary waste of money. This can raise overhead prices, and decrease your output- both of which are events that eliminate your profits. Sigilo Fleet Management is a mobile app that allows you to store all important equipment information that is critical to operations.  It is completely paperless, and allows you to have important information at your fingertips whenever you need it. Sigilo provides all maintenance and repair information, so you can know ahead of time when a piece of equipment is due for repairs.  Sigilo will also increase your employee’s productivity due to the fact that you will not have to spend hours searching for these papers when you need them.  You will no longer have to worry about wasting money on emergency purchase decisions due to lost or malfunctioning equipment.

With our systems in place, gross profit will eventually begin to increase in your company.  Less time is spent checking inventory, searching for equipment, or going back to pick up forgotten equipment.  This means that you save money by not having to pay your crews overtime.  If it costs less for you company to do a job, you can decrease the prices you charge customers.  Being able to offer your customers the lowest prices possible is a way to ensure sales in this economy.
