Marzipan made with love
The family business Niederegger aspires to make and market the best marzipan in the world. The company’s success is based on the combination of tradition and modernity, as well as excellent quality. In the meantime, the tasty creations are on the shelves in more than 40 countries around the world. As well as marzipan, nougat, chocolates and truffles, the product range also includes baumkuchen, fruit loaf and biscuits. Lavishing loving attention on details, the production facilities and manufactories turn out more than 300 different delicacies and special edition products. In the process, the company has to cope with hefty seasonal fluctuations. From the middle of the year on, production volumes are ramped up massively to meet the Christmas season demand. For example, around 30,000 kilos of marzipan are processed every day. Up to 250 full-time and part-time seasonal workers, 90 percent of whom return every year, top up the 500-strong core team during this peak period. This makes tremendous demands on personnel organization. In their search for a powerful time & attendance system, company management put demand-driven, flexible duty schedules on the top of their wish list. Niederegger opted for ATOSS Time Control.
Today, our solution is managing working times and access control throughout the company. Our hardware partner dormakaba installed the necessary terminals. The company's five branches in Lübeck were also incorporated into the project. All employees have access to their working time accounts at all times via Self Services, and benefit from paperless vacation applications. Administrative input in Human Resources was significantly reduced, and errors in wage statements are now a thing of the past. A pilot project is currently ongoing with workforce scheduling in the production area. The clear objective is to optimize workforce processes along the entire production chain and to flexibilize shift planning over the long term. Niederegger is currently building an all-new, ultra-modern production facility. Today, the company already has the matching future-proof workforce management solution in place.
