For Wonderful Nurseries, labour costs are the largest part of their total process costs. During production season, no less than 200 workers are active in their California locations in Wasco and Shafter. Wonderful Nurseries profits from the self-service app Labour Insight since 2016. It’s an indispensable tool team leaders use to track worked hours, specific activities and the number of vines produced by each worker. The software runs in the cloud, but labour and production can be registered without a connection to Wi-Fi or 4G and can be uploaded later.
“At Wonderful Nurseries, we used to manually register the number of hours and quantities produced. A time-consuming job. Since we’ve used Labour Insight, we’ve saved at least 15 minutes per day per team leader and an hour each day for the data entry clerk” says a supervisor.
Easy to use, easy to correct
Wonderful Nurseries managers utilize many teams to adapt to a rapidly changing environment. In their own words: Easy to use: “The app is very easy to use. It didn’t take a lot of effort for the team leaders to learn how to use it.” Easy to correct: “Using the correction feature, it’s easy to quickly fix errors for an entire team.
Recommendation without hesitation
“Labour Insight works. Simple as that. Labour costs are so much more transparent now that all activities are clearly defined. And when you’re looking at the production of 225,000 vines per day, clarity and consistency is everything. We use the export feature to do in depth analysis and reporting in a predefined Excel pivot table. Labour Insight gives us insight into performance at any time. I would recommend it to other companies without hesitation.”
