Loděnice, Czech Republic, February 2, 2014
General Manager Michal Štěrba states: “Our company is customer oriented. We offer our customers complete solutions meeting their requirements, with personalized approach and substantial cost saving in case they place an order with us. We work hard continuously to achieve improvement and to be capable of offering more in the domain of printing, package or data carrier manufacture or product assembly and distribution.
In today’s turbulent environment we cannot rely only on investments in new production capacities, introduction of new products, quality improvement, etc. Our customer focus and creation of value-add solutions makes pressure on search for ways to increase our attractiveness for customers also by being able to offer higher flexibility as well as reliability in meeting the agreed delivery dates. And the latter has become our prime goal in the customer service quality improvement.
This task is not easy to fulfil. In order to be able to accomplish this objective in the present stage when the number of orders is increasing, we have to implement an overall change in the company’s planning process because we are not settle with a minor improvement; we need a substantial change. And this change must be supported by substantially improved abilities to organize the order fulfillment process.
We selected LOGIS as a partner to assist us in the execution of this demanding task because it convinced us it is one of the best suppliers not only from the viewpoint of knowledge of the best production planning practices but, more importantly, because it is able to regularly achieve real improvements at its customers in this area “.
“We like to work with companies which set out high objectives for them and can pursuit the objectives with high perseverance, with those which are not content with being an outstanding entity in their country but want to rival anyone in the world – and this is just the characteristics of GZ Media. Projects focused on change in the order planning and execution process are among the most challenging ones which are implemented in manufacturing companies. I believe the efforts exerted by both parties and, in particular, the employment of our many years’ experience both in local and foreign projects will enable us to achieve the expected benefits,” adds Tomáš Vojtík, Executive Director at LOGIS.
