The path to your future success starts here.
When you sign on to a project with Productiv, you’re signing more than a purchase order. You’re joining a network of experts and partners who are committed to a certain kind of excellence—the principles we call The Productiv Way. It’s rare that our clients come to us without wanting some combination of: adding production capacity, increasing throughput, shortening lead times, reducing costs or delighting consumers. For us, the key to accomplishing these critical business objectives is deceptively simple – and uniquely ours.
We find opportunities to implement efficiencies within your supply chain that ensure quality and product outstanding outcomes.
We believe clients and team members win when we work together; that’s why our teams enjoy benefits and financial bonuses that are tied to quality and positive outcomes.
We rise by lifting others first; client service is a part of everyone’s job, and our managers are evaluated by their ability to support and advocate for their teams.
The pillars of the Productiv Way form our company culture and describe what specialized labor-intensive production is all about. We’re also guided by a handful of signature operational approaches, which include staffing a management team with a diverse breadth of experience, staying up to date with technologies that enable innovation, and designing custom processes that are tailored to each project’s objectives.
Excluding freight, labor is the single largest expense in fulfillment centers that are not highly automated. Naturally, finding ways to work smarter and engineer a lean process for your kitting, packaging, or assembly task will have a meaningful impact on your bottom line.As a sophisticated national supply chain partner, Productiv specializes in setting up labor programs for growth and long-term success.
It all begins with implementing a set of lean engineering enhancements that convert fulfillment lines from a ‘Just in Case’ mindset (stockpiling items regardless of orders) to a ‘Just in Time’ mindset (that efficiently schedules workers and other resources based on existing orders).
All Productiv leaders are highly skilled with lean principles and tools to optimize workflows, improve throughput and quality, wring our waste and improve profitability. Some examples inlcude:
Single piece flow - Workers focus on processing and building one unit at a time. Conveyors are optimized for optimal flow and collaboration between workers. Our staff spends less time doing quality control and rework and more time producing output.
Pulling work through – Using Kanban or ‘pull’ techniques for receiving, material handling, staging and production.
Jigs – Templates and tools designed to standardize output and sustain quality
Minimizing waste – Scrutinizing all types of process waste to add value and quality
Kaizen – An ongoing commitment to continuous improvement within a project and across multiple programs and sites
Paperless warehouse system utilizing RFID scanners for product movement
High availability and disaster recovery for 24/7 system uptime
Real-time web based data reports on orders, user activity, etc.
Geographically dispersed data centers to mitigate risk
