In 2012, Gecko Dynamics won a tender for providing a custom software solution for management of CamTran’s business & manufacturing processes. The main part was focused around creating, storing, organizing, searching, viewing, editing, and controlling Standardized Work Instructions. The project was initially treated as a pilot project but was envisioned to grow and implement a larger custom software facilitating optimization of CamTran’s business processes, internally called Jive.
Results of the pilot phase led to maintaining a long terms cooperation, during which Gecko Dynamics has delivered a system than includes:
- Instant & quick access to all projects, KPI’s and critical customer information direct to shop floor
- Jobs management including specifications, drawings, time standards and completion checklists
- Project & Issue management with workflow from origination to resolution
- Document management
- Production and financial forecasting Internal audits
- Winding schedule optimization
Jive has been found to be a critical component in optimizing production and operations within the company
Number of human errors on all phases of production process has been decreased
Sales increase – key customers have been impressed with Jive and CamTran’s commitment to innovation, optimization and visibility into production process, which helped in securing multi-million dollar deals
CamTran is constantly undertaking a number of key initiatives following its continuous efforts to improve
its services, including state of the art equipment, robotization and environmental stewardship.
Nevertheless, 5 years after commence of the Jive project it is still #1 on the CamTran’s key initiatives list.
What the client says
They were excellent. Timely deliveries and competitive rates combined with exceptional math and technical skills make Gecko Dynamics an ideal partner. They demonstrated a greater understanding of our mission than other companies had shown in the past.
Their project management was amazing. They also suggested technical solutions that saved us time & money, which our customers also appreciated. After 9 years of continuous cooperation, I can recommend Gecko as one of the best business partners I’ve ever worked with.
From 1 to 5, I would rate them a 6 if I could. They’re amazing. The value they provide is why we’ve worked with them so long. I’m willing to drive down the street in the middle of L.A. when I’m tired to make sure they have a good review.
By synchronizing production information across all 3 plants, the database system facilitated substantial company growth, leading to sales doubling over 4 years. Gecko Dynamics familiarized themselves with unique industry challenges to produce a customized solution and become a long-term partner.
Profitability is up with a recent project achieving a 25% increase in monthly revenue. Added features deepen engagement with existing customers and attract an ever-expanding range of new business. While close relationships are a key asset, they’ve created an informality in need of correcting.
