Veryable, with its on-demand labor marketplace, received the MHI Innovation Award for Best IT Innovation at MHI Industry Night at the recent MODEX conference. Veryable is one of CJ Logistics’ business partners.
The MHI Innovation Award winners are determined to “create quantifiable and sustainable results in terms of ROI, cost savings, customer satisfaction, etc,” according to an MHI press release.
According to Veryable, the company’s on-demand marketplace achieves these results by providing companies access to flexible labor capacity and helping them get the most out of an on-demand labor concept. “We are evangelizing hard for industrial innovation, specifically on-demand labor, as the right first step in the innovation journey, because we believe in the value it creates instantly for businesses and the control it gives workers,” says Veryable CEO Mike Kinder in a blog on the company’s website. “We’re tackling a very difficult operations problem and we’re doing it the right way.”
CJ Logistics’ work with and usage of Veryable is on an as needed basis and is really driven by operations’ need, according to Catherine Ponder, Director, HR. Veryable’s platform allows CJ Logistics to create a pool of trained workers the company can later invite to work assignments by simply posting. The platform allows CJ Logistics to tailor needs to what a Veryable worker is looking for. “Veryable has been a valuable and logistics forward partner,” Ponder said. “They understand the industry challenges and needs and have strong support in place for our busy operations. Their support teams are highly responsive and solutions based.”
The foundation of Veryable’s solution is that flexibility and agility are the ways to win in manufacturing and distribution environments.
