What Improvements Have You Seen Since Implementing DNAsp?

Better control and visibility of business performance and priorities to improve decision making. We aren’t wasting time looking for jobs on the shopfloor anymore, increasing efficiency. Through proactive planning processes, we have increased our productivity. As well as this, we have gained greater responsiveness, as jobs take significantly less time to process and launch on shop floor. Our customer satisfaction has increased after providing customers with unprecedented order book visibility.

“Historically we had to produce many production planning reports to release to the shop floor, since introducing DNAsp we have reduced this task considerably from what used to take 4 hours a day, can now be done in 10 minutes.”

- Stephan Banks, Production Manager

“DNAsp provides us with a streamlined system that manages all our paperwork seamlessly and provides us with advanced reporting and analysis to continually improve and grow our business.”
