We were happy to work with the entire team at manac, who are always on the lookout for ways to improve and streamline their processes. Our digital tool is an easy-to-use platform that accelerates problem-solving by breaking silos and bringing teams together to drive continuous improvement.

Gemba Walks & Daily Huddles

Manac’s managers and supervisors regularly carry out Gemba walks on the factory floor and conduct daily huddles to discuss problems and solutions with their teams. This helps identify any issues or challenges that might be occurring on the production line, allowing them to take action quickly.

Employee assistance program

We offer a variety of services to support our employees and their families, including access to psychologists, therapists, sexologists, lawyers, nutritionists and guidance counselors. The program is completely confidential and allows employees to seek advice if they have any personal concerns or difficulties that they are facing.


We provide a number of in-house and external training opportunities to help people progress within the company. These include coaching sessions, seminars and workshops for all levels of staff in the company.

The Merit program encourages employees to submit ideas that will save time or money, improve our work environment or OH&S procedures, and more. This is a great way to promote a culture of innovation and growth within the company.

Business Planning and Consolidation with SAP

Using a combination of the business intelligence and planning tools offered by SAP, Createch helped Manac consolidate their financial statements to ensure accurate data for planning purposes. This project allowed them to make informed decisions and better manage their finances.

In a nutshell, the solution is based on a database that holds all of the information from the different departments and departments can automatically report their own data to the consolidated budget. This makes it easier to follow up on the progress made by each department.

Our connected manager solution also includes a dashboard that provides a view of all relevant data. This gives the team a clear picture of how their operations are performing and enables them to make quick decisions that will ultimately lead to greater profitability.

Our software is a great solution for companies who want to automate their reporting and budgeting processes. The software helps to reduce manual processing and increases productivity while ensuring a smoother process for reporting and analysis.
