Is This Why Smaller Companies Are Less Digitised?

The CBS recently published a report saying that about a third of Dutch companies have not or barely digitised the processes in their day-to-day operations. In a way, this makes sense of course. You could assume that smaller companies have less money to spend, and are thus not spending that money on software or other digitisation efforts. But I have another view on the matter. I think that smaller companies think they are too small for digitisation. Too, being the operative word here.

First Week as a Graduate Intern at Capptions

My name is Naomi Wan and I have joined the Capptions team as the new Marketing and Sales Intern. I study International Business and Languages at the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences and for my last year, I have to write a thesis.

When I was searching for internship vacancies, I quickly encountered Capptions. I was interested in the position immediately, because I was looking for a company where I could challenge myself and grow as a business student. I wanted to learn more about other industries and how they work. I have already done an internship in the travel industry and I liked it a lot, but for the thesis, I wanted to try something new and Capptions seemed like the perfect match.

Ardagh Group Cuts Administrative Time In 4

Ardagh, as a global entity, has had a Lean Six Sigma program in place for the past 21 years. Among this, a 5S deployment which involves monthly audits. The average time that they were spending on these audits was at least 10 people per plant spending 2-3 hours to go through all the audits. Because it was mainly Excel-based, it was not standardised across the plants or regions, let alone worldwide. People were going with just a printout of the Excel, walking around the plants while taking pictures with their camera and making notes, then going back to their desks and spending hours to document what they’d found. Let’s do the math.

10 people x 56 plants x 2,5 hours x 12 months = 16.800 hours per year.
