G.James Glass & Aluminium is one of Australia’s leading manufacturers of windows and doors, servicing the residential, commercial, and high-rise building and construction markets.
G.James wanted to put an end to a resource intensive process which produced questionable job costing data; and transform it into an effortless process with accurate and useful data.
The process consisted of 100 factory workers manually recording the time it took to complete each job, every day, for the numerous jobs they worked on.
G.James implemented part of Soft Tech’s scheduling solution, which allows them to record the time it takes to complete jobs.
Using mobile devices, factory workers select the job they’re about to work on, and then close the job when they have completed it. The software records the time it took to complete that job.
The software also allows for jobs to be paused for breaks and unloading trucks, and that time is not included in that job’s costs.
