Manufacturers have many challenges to overcome – access to raw materials, sustainability, incremental costs of water, fuel and energy costs, global and local trade regulations to name a few. In addition, technology advances, and higher expectations on service, quality, and price are factors forcing all manufacturing companies to turn their attention to ways of becoming fully efficient within development cycles.
Moreover, manufacturers, with their large number of shift and contract workers can experience significant complexity in time capture, rostering and leave management. Often this is at a much higher level than any other sector – and legislation in some countries can be more complicated than others.
