As a plant manager, your job is to maintain a balance between your plant’s current capacity and the profit you need to succeed. When you’re already worried about meeting capacity, it can seem impossible to make an investment that might actually increase your revenue later down the line.
The PACE strategy can be applied to most decision making processes. Understand the pressures you must handle, find the actions that you need to take, assess your current capabilities, and look for enablers that will help you work toward your goal. Softrol’s Total Plant Management, including our PulseNet Productivity System (PPS) and Laundry Operation Information System (LOIS), enable improved laundry productivity and informed decision making.
A key pressure of the laundry industry is simple: in order to maximize profits, plant managers need to reduce the cost of operation as much as possible. This pressure is fairly constant and can result in a great deal of stress for both operators and executives. Softrol’s products are designed to help alleviate this pressure by improving efficiency and reducing the amount of required labor.
