Sappi Fine Paper North America is not only committed to being a leading producer of premium coated paper, it’s also committed to production methods that are good for the planet and the community.

From material acquisition through manufacturing, distribution, and disposal, how do paper manufacturers make sure all processes are on the same page? They use workforce management solutions.

Sappi Fine Paper can be traced back to 1854 to the S.D. Warren Company. In 1995, Sappi acquired the Westbrook mill, as well as several other mills owned by S.D. Warren. Today, Sappi has a presence on four continents. Sappi’s commitment to the environment means they are responsible for many industry “firsts.” They developed the first mill-branded LOE paper, which became the first type of premium paper with 30% post-consumer waste content, and was also the first to introduce Elemental Chlorine Free bleaching practices. When cutting-edge manufacturers like Sappi are looking for a solution to consistently ensure they have the skilled staff and production capacity to keep them at the forefront of “first,” they turn to Mitrefinch Time and Attendance Software.

Mitrefinch Time and Attendance Software makes sure manufacturers are able to produce products, while ensuring they always align with their vision, mission, and values. Scheduling functionality enables ideal staffing of all shifts, which means manufacturers like Sappi can spend more on developing new products, less on overstaffing and absenteeism costs. It also allows manufacturers to respond quickly to fluctuations in supply and demand, which occur when new products are launched. Green companies like Sappi appreciate the software’s Skills Matrix, which enables all shifts to be properly staffed by employees who have the proper skills and experience, while also following through on their commitments to the environment.

Maintaining environmental management systems comes at a cost, but Mitrefinch’s job costing tools allows paper manufacturers like Sappi to keep accurate tabs on both the direct and indirect costs associated with each manufacturing job. The result? Premium paper customers demand, produced in the most cost-effective, environmentally safe way possible.
