- Craig Friesen, CMO Chief Operations Officer.

Read on to see how CMO's revolutionary software can provide efficiency solutions for your shop or showroom!

Common Industry Problems: 

 Most wood working shops grow to the point of overwhelming administrative problems.

 

  See if you can relate to these common problems:

  1. Materials are late because of poor or non-existent tracking.
  2. The shop operates in a crisis mode rather than on carefully planned schedules.
  3. Install dates are changed, sabotaging the manufacturing schedule.
  4. Production efficiencies are near 35%. (how long should it take to make the drawers?)
  5. Administration time / costs are too high! (Too much time is spent fixing problems.)
  6. The responsibility for most of the 85 steps per cabinet job lies on one  person.  
                                                             (Steps get missed & staff are powerless to help.)
  7. Management has little clue whether each job is profitable until the year end!
                                                    (No accountability when individual tasks are over the allotted time.
  8. Material costs are too high because of an outdated "quote" system.
  9. Sales and referrals are missed because of poor client relationship management.
  10. Yellow page ad still outdraws non-existent or basic web site.

"Seven years ago we had 12 production staff busy on the floor and losing money.

Since then we have reorganized our operation and with the help of CMO software we are now down to 5 production staff, have increased our capacity by 20% and are on track for our best year ever!"

- Dave, Generation Cabinets
