Back-office and shop floor automation
Local IT partner Thysia Information recommended that Euro Caps implement Microsoft SharePoint with K2 to centralize its document management and automate business processes. Over the course of 2 years, Euro Caps built more than 25 K2 solutions, simplifying data collection and streamlining processes from the shop floor to the board room.
Two key K2 solutions, called Operator Tiles and Operator Portal, provide employees on the shop floor with instant access to product manuals and the ability to view and record grind history for different types of coffee beans and pallet configurations. Time is no longer wasted looking for information and duplicating effort, which improves efficiency on the production line.
There are also currently 7 K2-based processes in the HR department, covering everything from hiring new employees to extending contracts and managing the company’s Facebook profile. K2 automatically alerts the HR team when they need to perform routine tasks such as making appointments with new employees. “After the K2 processes were introduced, the efficiency of the HR team sky-rocketed,” van Dijk says. “Because processes are more efficient right across the business, we save time which enables us to do more things and leads to cost savings.”
