Business Challenges


Recognising the need to maintain the bank’s competitive edge and a drive for continuous operations improvement, it became clear that the management information available and the manual capacity management tools in place limited team leaders’ abilities to make real-time decisions and adjustments to the operations.

At the time, Operations data was collated through manual processes and lean developed practices and, although accurate, the information was not available in real-time and was subject to spreadsheet formula or consolidation errors. As a result, team leaders would often interpret and apply the data differently within the confines of a department.

Following visits to existing ActiveOps customers, the bank selected Workware to provide real-time operations data presented in designed-for-purpose dashboards and reports and provided a consistent management framework and language to interpret and act on the information provided.

Team Leader Benefits


Using Workware and AOM, team leaders are now able to identify spare capacity, skills, and training requirements, enabling the lending of staff between teams to meet peaks in workloads.

Team members benefit through working in different functions while the business itself benefits from reduced overtime and hiring costs by absorbing an increase in workload using existing resources.
