Magnatag Visible Systems’s picture

(Magnatag: Macedon, NY) -- Managers say that “things get done” when they display key performance metrics on Magnatag’s new magnetic key performance indicator (KPI) whiteboards.

“They’ve helped us increase productivity by 10 percent since we started using them,” says a Georgia continuous improvement manager. “People need feedback. Every minute of the day is worth X units of production and when they fall short, they need to know.” 

“The boards are an essential ingredient of our lean program,” says a Florida pharmaceuticals production manager. “Our employees can actually see the score of the game at all times through their workday. Without it, they can only guess. What better way to show the impact than to display the results right in front of everyone?”

“What gets measured gets done,” says Magnatag spokesman Christian Krapf. “Our customers tell us the KPI boards motivate all who see them. They show daily results for a month using two-sided, red/green flip-over magnets, magnetic KPI headings, and dry erase markers.
