Business Client Need
In 2014, A1 Jay’s requested implementation and training assistance for their new ERP and production scheduling systems. With customers requesting less lead time and even further cost reductions than in the past, A1 Jay’s decided that an improved ERP and production scheduling implementation and employee training program would allow them to meet and in many cases exceed their customer’s needs.
Manex was specifically chosen for this program because of their depth of experience and strong Third Party Affiliate network that was used to lead this program. Manex created a training needs matrix by department and training was provided to the affected team members. Production scheduling needs were analyzed and coordination of the various plants was needed as many of the products passed through all three core competencies during the manufacturing process.
