Improving Office Efficiency

The concept of improving production efficiency became popular in the early 1990s, and since then, many companies have effectively streamlined their manufacturing processes. But to truly optimize overall business performance and charge ahead of the competition, more is needed: The entire system environment must work to perfection. Thousands of office tasks and administrative processes are performed multiple times on a daily basis in areas like management, production control, product origination, planning, procurement, and support. Now, optimizing these processes and improving office efficiency have become key to the overall success of your organization.

For the past ten year, Ingenics has offered – and steadily enhanced – its rigorous lean office program. Our efficiency consultants have used it to help hundreds of companies achieve lasting results through process-oriented thinking, well-defined responsibilities, structured procedures, regular control via key ratios, and more.
