When organisations implement Operations Management Software, they expect a number of associated quantitative benefits.  Companies who are using j5 Operations Management Software have reported significant quantitative improvements within their processes.  Here are 10 Quantitative Benefits of j5 Operations Management Software:

  1. 30 Minutes Saved per Manager per Day: j5 clients have reported significant time savings after implementing j5 Applications.  Before j5, there were unnecessary phone calls, paper work, meetings, manual data entry and so on.  These time savings have been achieved by reducing this workload by managing it all within the electronic j5 system.  Automated services such as automatic log entry and report generation have provided substantial benefits.
  2. 100% Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) Achieved: PDCA (plan–do–check–act or plan–do–check–adjust) an iterative four-step management method used in business for the control and continuous improvement of processes and products. It is also known as the Deming circle/cycle/wheel, Shewhart cycle, control circle/cycle, or plan–do–study–act (PDSA).  j5 customers who have tried to reach 100% achievement on this KPI for many years have now finally reached this milestone by implementing the j5 System.
  3. 30 Minutes Saved per Person per Handover: Before using j5, our clients have used manual methods such as paper, spreadsheets, word documents and other scattered databases to collect key shift information.  This often involved personnel spending time collecting information across different systems or even by memory.  The j5 Shift Handover system has allowed our users to experience a time saving of 30 minutes during the Shift Handover process.  This is particularly valuable after an extended day shift, when many events have occurred.
  4. Up to 5 Less Logbooks per Section: Before using j5, our customers have had separate logbooks for different areas and job roles.  The advanced filtering, permissions and reporting functions within j5, allow users to see the information related to them only.  After implementing the j5 Operations Logbook our clients have reduced the number of logbooks required at their industrial sites.  Quantitative data suggests that companies who use the j5 system have simplified their operations by retiring around 1 to 5 logbooks per plant area.
  5. Up to 5 Less Logbooks per Section: Before using j5, our customers have had separate logbooks for different areas and job roles.  The advanced filtering, permissions and reporting functions within j5, allow users to see the information related to them only.  After implementing the j5 Operations Logbook our clients have reduced the number of logbooks required at their industrial sites.  Quantitative data suggests that companies who use the j5 system have simplified their operations by retiring around 1 to 5 logbooks per plant area.
  6. Several Days Saved Finding Information: On every industrial site it is very important that real-time information is readily available to all personnel.  Paper logbooks are usually filed away in folders, filing cabinets and archives, making the process of finding specific information a laborious task.  Spreadsheets and unconnected databases can be scattered all over an IT infrastructure.  j5 users have saved 1 to several days by having easily searchable information on the same platform.
  7. Meetings Reduced by 30 Minutes per Day: Before using j5, our clients have been forced into scheduling unnecessary meetings because they didn’t have a clear view of what was happening across their operations.  j5 customers have saved 30 minutes per day per person by eliminating unnecessary meetings.  The availability of information on j5 Dashboards and Reports and across the system allows Supervisors and Managers to call meetings when necessary, rather than regularly.
  8. 30 Minutes per Day Saved Alerting Experts: Companies using j5 Inspection Rounds have reported significant time savings in alerting relevant personnel about problems in the field.  This mobile application sends data and alerts – such as email and SMS – in real-time to the person responsible for fixing a particular problem.  For example, an Instrument Engineer who is qualified to service particular pieces of plant equipment.
  9. 3 Hours Saved with Contractor Lists: Before using j5, the process of organizing schedules from the (possibly many) contractors – which included prioritizing them, requesting confirmation and confirming the schedules – was always potentially a massive daily task.  If this is not done on time it leads to disruptions, late hours, and the knee-jerk firing off of tasks.  Our customers say they have brought sanity to this process and now have time to think clearly and are never late in issuing the daily contractor schedules.
  10. 50 Monthly Hours Saved on Near Miss Stats: Before using j5, our clients have used different methods across a site to record near misses or safety incidents.  These range from paper forms, to emails, to shared spreadsheets and so on.  The j5 Incident Management application has saved our customers 50 hours per month when calculating near miss statistics.  The increased visibility and management of around 5000 near misses per month at some sites has resulted in these significant savings
