Activity Report

The Activity Report shows a detailed picture of an employees activity throughout the day including clocking in and out as well as work sessions. Included in the report for each line item is an end gap, which is the amount of time between work sessions. This can help identify employees that are wasting time.

Oceanside Cleaners

Michael Harris of Oceanside Cleaners in Jacksonville, FL called me a while back to tell me that he was going to sell his PieceCounters. He said he didn’t have any problems with the system and that his pressers were still using them, he just never looked at the reports so he didn’t think he was getting much value from them.

I told him no problem and that I would even help him find a buyer, but I asked Mike to first unplug the PieceCounters for at least one pay period and watch his labor costs to make sure they didn’t go up. Sure enough, Mike later told me that labor costs increased approximately 20% that pay period and, needless to say, Mike kept the PieceCounters. After seeing the powerful impact that real-time performance feedback had on his pressers, Mike soon added two more units to his shirt laundry for a total of 14 units in his plant.

Whether you have one presser or one hundred, the PieceCounter can save you 10 to 25% in your labor costs, paying for itself in 6 months or less for most operations.

Moose Cleaners

The PieceCounter has been a valuable tool that was added to our operation back in August 2011. Now there is no more guesswork or bickering among the pressers. You know IMMEDIATELY who is doing their fair share and who is not. I highly recommend PieceCounter to anyone interested in getting a more accurate picture of their production and increased efficiency.

Westport Linen

Westport Linen Services was committed to buying a production monitoring and piece counting system. We did adequate research and found WESVIC to be the best value on the market. The real time piece counts and easy to use monitors have allowed us to realize significant gains in production. The system allows employees to see a real time percentage to standards, creating a competitive environment and in turn increasing productivity. We feel the investment was a drop in the bucket compared to what we are gaining on the production floor. Great software and hardware coupled with ease of use makes this product a home run!

Jim’s Formal Wear

The PieceCounters have changed the way we manage productivity at Jim’s Formal Wear. The tool provides real time feedback, it allows supervisors and team members to analyze performance and give direct feedback on a daily basis. The software saves a lot of time in getting results from the previous day’s work and developing a plan for the next day. The tool allows you to recover the “slivers of waste”, increase daily output and essentially save time and money.

Valet Today

Once we started using the Wesvic Piece Counter, we found that we needed 25% less pressers and the standing around after the staff clocked in went away. It was like magic. Wesvic says the payback would be immediate…..ours was faster than that. I highly recommend the Wesvic Piece Counter to every dry cleaner that cares about their labor costs. With the PieceCounter, labor is now the easiest variable for our industry to control.

I love the self-motivation that is occurring now not to mention the awesome reports.

Jamie Albano, Owner, Albano Cleaners, Norfolk, VA – 10 units

I love the control between our POS time clock system and the Wesvic system, it shows us immediately who is wasting time. For instance slow to get back from break or getting started in the morning, too many trips to the bathroom, and/or too much wandering around.

We have been purchasing the units over a period of time and continue to find new areas to measure and reduce cost.
We recently installed the Wesvic’s on our laundry side.  On the morning of the second day we reviewed the numbers from Day 1 with our staff and by the end of Day 2 we saw a 5-10 piece per hour improvement.

Bear’s Naturally Clean Dry Cleaners

Since installing PieceCounter by WesVic in January 2014 we have seen in increase in production of over 10%.  One of the most valuable features is the instant feedback that my employees get by seeing their performance on the screen.  It is the most efficient way for me to manage labor to an optimal performance level.
