Since launching with Veryable in July of 2022, Intertech’s production supervisors now have a flexibility unlike anything they had prior across all three shifts. With seven new product lines launching in 2023, Intertech’s team knows they have the ability to add additional projects to the mix without the fear of a labor bottleneck.
With 40% of Intertech’s business being services to Tier 1 and OEM suppliers, they experience significant swings in production schedules. Often running day-to-day scheduling, Veryable has been instrumental in lowering overall costs to help Intertech keep costs low for their customers.
“We have been upskilling our (production) supervisors on Veryable so it gives them ownership because they’re the ones who know the schedules, need additional people in, or when people are calling off has taken a lot off of our (HR) plate and we’re supporting them,” said Kathy Carney, HR Manager. “Overall, it’s helped build our relationships with our supervisors by using Veryable.”
Kathy and the team have been great advocates in their surrounding communities, “My thought on this whole process is it's been working for us and why wouldn't we want to communicate that process to other areas or other industries? So we've held meetings locally with Grow Wabash County.” Grow Wabash County is a combined chamber and economic development organization.

There’s nothing to lose, there’s no risk. Why wouldn’t you want to use Veryable if you can get operators in and not have to burden your full-time workforce.”
