The positive impact of QAD Redzone was immediately noticeable – Day one of turning on Redzone, we went from 120 to 210 units. Since then, we’ve gone 100% paperless, increased employee retention to 91%, and reduced turnover by 65%. Round that out with 300+ operator care checks per month, and the empowerment our frontline workers have felt is unmatched. It’s great to see our workers taking ownership in their work, embracing new technology, and the positive effect on our bottom line, has been tremendous.
Adam Eckstein Sr. Director of Operations
