If Henry Ford had a Smartphone

If-HENRY-FORD-had-a-Smart-phoneHenry Ford saved time through innovation and change. He is best known for the moving vehicle production line. The line moved at a set production pace. Workers had to keep up to the line.

To keep up to line speed, innovative vehicle assembly procedures were developed and perfected. Each change was simple but detailed. The details became routine.
Simplifying the routine gave improvement. However, the big gains were in more “thinking time”. More problems were solved. More time to implement innovation.

Nearly every business has a “Henry Ford” moving line. It is the digitisation of your work processes. This end-to-end set of processes should give the customer meaningful solutions on time and on spec. Every business has side processes that take people “off the production line”.

Many process steps use computer based applications. Some use digital communication. There is data collection internally and with the customer. How much time would you save if these steps were simplified?

Palm 2 Cloud follows a change process of identifying simple processes that take too long. We examine apps you can hold in the palm of your hand to simplify things. We explore together with you how much more thinking time can be released for the customer.

More thinking time adds value to both your business and your people.

You just have to “pay for freight” (travel expenses).
