Performance Improvements

In 2013, Geco Chemical demonstrated good operational performance, having recovered from the challenges of the previous year. However, we need to protect our competitive position in the market and secure sustainable growth. In 2013 we introduced a series of improvements to enhance overall performance:

Project Compass

Project Compass: represented the implementation plan for phase one of our Oracle-based ERP system, namely finance, payroll and human resources. Early in 2013, we recruited a dedicated ERP team led by an experienced ERP project director. The programme was overseen by the senior management from the outset and there was regular progress monitoring and reporting, resulting delivery on time and on budget. The project team is now undertaking the scoping exercise for phase two.

Project Evolution

Project Evolution: we established a dedicated team tasked with implementing the productivity improvements and costs efficiency activities, which in turn will help us to become more competitive and ultimately win more work.

CROP

Cost Reduction Opportunity Programme (CROP): aims to get all Geco Chemical employees involved in creating a more efficient, safe and cost effective working environment. We identify opportunities where cost could be reduced by either adapting or altering a current system, process or technology to make it more effective and efficient, or by implementing a new process, system or technology to ensure best practice.
