Food and beverage organizations across the country are ditching the old way of doing things and leveraging a new labor paradigm, as they seek a more flexible and agile model to address fluctuating and unpredictable customer demands and solve the never ending on-time delivery challenge while operating cost efficiently.
In the past when faced with a demand spike, companies have been forced to choose between turning down business and losing money, paying overtime to a group of already maxed out employees, or keeping full-time employees on payroll who aren’t needed most of the time, just to have the capacity to meet potential spikes in demand.
With an on-demand labor model, your capacity is able to respond in real time to this change in demand. With access to skilled independent workers, you can find labor on demand to help get your big order out on-time without hiring a middleman, locking into a long-term contract, or using overtime to get more out of a group of already overworked employees. Using our Workforce Management tool and building a labor pool of on-demand operators to build a flexible extension of your workforce, you can respond to daily fluctuations in demand instead of planning your operations based on averages.
Today's workers are demanding flexibility in terms of working when they want and where they want, as well as opportunities for skills development and career advancement, resulting in an ever-increasing number of on-demand workers available to you at just the click of a button.
Gain the capacity you need, exactly when you need it. When you build a labor pool with on-demand labor, you’ll have both the confidence and the unlimited flexible capacity to take on anything that comes your way.
This is about more than filling the gaps; this is about achieving the peak of efficiency no matter what comes your way.
Make. Your Way
Respond quickly to changes in demand rather than relying on guesswork. Find workers fast, pay only when they work, and unlock your potential with infinite flexibility.
GML was well into their busy season and had more than 70 backlogged loads on the lot compared to a target of 40, creating operational bottlenecks which resulted in extended lead times, employee overtime/burnout, and increased costs. Keeping service levels to customers high and being able to quickly move products through their distribution centers was the priority.
Upon securing launches with two of the world’s largest chains, the opportunity was clear but the path to delivering on their dream was not. Anh and Joseph knew they couldn’t produce their first large order alone, but understood the risks and costs associated with a full-time hiring strategy or temp staffing solution for a one-time order. That’s where Veryable came in.
“We're getting our orders built and we're getting them built on time, so they can be loaded on time, so they can be delivered. And we're not wasting a ton of money to get it done,” says MacMunn. “Where before, we were having a hard time getting everything done and getting the trucks out on time, now we're getting them out not only on time, but early ... and some nights, very early. It's been a huge difference.”
“Veryable has given us flexibility to get orders out without late dispatch,” says Brooks. “We have a resource pool and we use it. And it's been life saving at times.”
“Anyone who’s in my Labor Pool, I know I can count on. I don’t have that question anymore of “what’s going to happen tomorrow” because I already have my Labor Pool.”
