When you’re a manufacturer looking to cut costs while still delivering a high-quality product on time, where do you turn? If you’re Component Sources International, you turn to workforce management solutions.
Component Sources International is part of CSI, a highly specialized group of companies offering unique manufacturing processes for mechanical components including turning, milling, plastic injection molding, metal injection molding, and stamping. They also offer a full range of support services, including sales and marketing, sourcing, and distribution logistics. In an effort to improve the organization’s shift system and get a better handle on costs, they partnered with Mitrefinch Time and Attendance Software.
Component Sources wanted to be able to more efficiently track shifts not only to ensure labor supply always met demand, but also to determine where they were incurring overtime, and why. Advance Systems’ data helps them make the choices that maximize their workforce, cutting down on costly overtime without running the risk of understaffing.
One of the primary goals of Component Sources is to help their customers reduce their costs. In order to do that, the organization must run close tabs on 23 machines that run during regular business hours, at night, and on weekends. Mitrefinch Time and Attendance Software’s job costing tools allow the organization to track and manage both direct and indirect costs of each and every job, so they can provide the accurate quotes and good prices they are known for.
Mitrefinch Time and Attendance System has also streamlined payroll. Time and attendance information is downloaded directly to payroll software, increasing efficiency, reducing errors, and saving money.
Component Sources International also wanted a way to reduce absenteeism and tardiness, all of which added to the company’s bottom line. Mitrefinch Time and Attendance System keeps data on late arrivals, extended lunch breaks, early leavings, and absenteeism. Not only does the system easily identify problems and issues, it also makes them transparent to employees. Employees who can see issues and problems are more likely to take control of them and improve their behavior.
Mitrefinch Time and Attendance Software enables Component Sources International to improve efficiency and cost, so they can pass these things on to their customers.
