– confirm base roster, identify digital opportunity, optimise productivity, review labour management & output by shift

Labour is inevitably a high % of total expenditure in a traditional business model. Productivity significantly impacts ROI & profit.

Base rosters are often a function of incremental change over time. Our experience highlights the benefits and opportunities from asking WHY?

Labour Management uses staff skills productively. When actual roster hours variance is not managed, increased costs increase unit cost.

Workforce planning places the right skills & motivation in the right quantities in the right place at the right time.


– achieve ‘best value’ in production and the supply market

‘Best value’ is producing or purchasing the right product/volume /quantities/packaging for/in the right market at the right time.

CMS experience in market testing (quality, service & price) & streamlining (ordering, delivery & receiving ) drives ‘best value’.

The CMS Code of Conduct provides an unambiguous commitment to achieve ‘best value’ through market testing & competitive tendering.

Our ethics are not negotiable. In 20+ years, CMS has never received a 3rd party financial benefit.

CMS assist owner/managers transition to working ‘on their business’ and use of business intelligence to maximise the value of their nest egg. Our objective is to develop additional monetary & lifestyle options for owners to enjoy better quality of life for the rest of their life.

Change is faster than ever & not slowing. The future inevitably reflects the past less than ever.

Disrupters are delighted when ‘gut feel’ informs competitors decision making. They rely on business intelligence (actual measures, timely & accurate, automated on line reporting) for decision making.
