PEM Systems

Why use a Productivity and Efficiency Management System?

It can give you the information necessary to make substantial improvements to your plant’s profitability.

“The factory productivity has improved by 17% over the past six months…………..” UK laundry owner

“We are now using 12 fewer operatives to achieve the same production levels…” US laundry owner

Most laundries have reported savings, simply by installing the system – typically 5-8%. – Operatives like to see that they’ve attained a reasonable and achievable target.No-one likes to be “in the red”.

Most laundries have reported savings, from completely unexpected areas. For example, discovering that major pieces of equipment were left powered on for long periods when not in use.

So, why a Tracknet PEM system from Micross?
