Van Dam Bodegraven
Van Dam Bodegraven bv is an independent producer of cleaning products for the Dutch and European market, and has developed into a ‘private-label’ and ‘contract-filling’ producer. For years, we have manufactured products for several European retail chains and multinationals. Van Dam Bodegraven bv is not only active in the Benelux, but focuses strongly on exports. We have a production site and offices in Bodegraven (The Netherlands) and a sales office in Mülheim an der Ruhr (Germany). Quality, flexibility and a service-oriented approach have been our key values for over 80 years. For more information go to http://www.vandambodegraven.nl
Van Dam Bodegraven was looking for a suitable measurement system for its filling lines. That’s how we discovered MyPlantFloor by Agilitec. Right from the start, it just ‘clicked’ between our company and the software. The combination of planning through the Graphic Planning Table, calculating conversion times via the SMED system and the entire ‘look and feel’ of the system encouraged us to jump on board.
The cost for the software, the entire implementation and the associated hardware was a pleasant surprise, because you really get value for money. We have been using the software for a while now and we have noticed that the users – both operators and managers – have jumped on the bandwagon pretty quickly. Not only because it is user-friendly, but also because everyone sees the advantages MyPlantFloor offers your organisation.
Now that we have become keen users of the programme, we sometimes see scope for improvement. In close consultation with Agilitec extensions and changes are quickly and easily implemented. As users, we don’t need to worry too much about testing, because the necessary changes are immediately implemented successfully.
Carefully analysing all the available information has become a piece of cake, because MyPlantFloor offers an accessible and structured analysis tool. The information is easily accessible and understandable at every level. Van Dam keenly uses this information, resulting in adaptations and improvements to the lines. This, in turn, leads to a higher output and more motivated operators. All thanks to MyPlantFloor.
It’s safe to say that opting for MyPlantFloor was the right thing to do. There are many similar programmes on the market, but the combination that MyPlantFloor offers is unique and perfectly meets our needs. Not once have we regretted our decision!
