Manufacturers need to be able to manage labour in a flexible way.
Manufacturers have many challenges to overcome - access to raw materials, sustainability, incremental costs of water, fuel and energy costs, global and local trade regulations to name a few. In addition, technology advances, and higher expectations on service, quality, and price are factors forcing all manufacturing companies to turn their attention to ways of becoming fully efficient within development cycles.
Moreover, it’s never easy for organisations to ensure their employees are all paid accurately and on time. But for manufacturers, with their large number of hourly paid workers, the task gets much more complicated than any other sector. And it’s especially complex for manufacturers operating in more than one country.
