In the sprawling landscape of manufacturing, tradition often finds itself rubbing shoulders with innovation. A classic example of this is our clients journey with Wipflo – a story of transformation from manual spreadsheets and paper processes to a streamlined digital powerhouse.
A Glimpse into the Past
Before the implementation of Wipflo, they were entrenched in a world of manual data entry, paper shuffling, and the inevitable delays they brought. Every process, from sales to invoicing, required manual intervention, slowing down operations and costing precious time.
The Wipflo Era Begins
Everything changed with the introduction of Wipflo into their day to day processes. Here’s a deep dive into the profound impact it’s had on their operations:
Sales: No longer bound by manual methods, the client has harnessed Wipflo’s capabilities to automatically generate sales order confirmation notes. Drawing data directly from their estimating systems, they’ve successfully eliminated a cumbersome 4 hours per week previously dedicated to this task.
Operations: The real-time magic of Wipflo’s Production tracking transformed our operations. The client has bid goodbye to on-foot factory checks, with all the job-related data now displayed instantly in their offices or remote locations. Add to this the brilliant feature of tracking operator time via tablets, and they’ve slashed a whopping 8 hours off their weekly operations.
Delivery & Invoicing: With Wipflo, redundancy is a thing of the past. Creating deliveries and invoices directly from sales orders now takes a fraction of the time, saving them 4 hours each per week. And let’s not forget the seamless accounting integration with Xero, which frees up another 4 hours that were once lost to repetitive data entry.
The Future is Bright
The clients journey with Wipflo is far from over. As they eagerly look to implement more of its production management features, they’re poised to tap into even greater efficiencies across their business. In terms of time-saving alone, Wipflo has already proven its weight in gold.
And through it all, the cherry on top has been the unparalleled support from the Wipflo development team. They’re always a call away, ready to guide, tweak, and elevate the system to match our evolving needs.
Wipflo hasn’t just been a software addition; it’s been a paradigm shift, a beacon of efficiency in their manufacturing processes. A shining example that with the right tools, the future of manufacturing is not just automated but optimized to perfection.
