...SOME ACCOMPLISHMENTS

SCITEX¹ - CREATED IN EUROPE THE STRONGEST TECHNICAL SUPPORT TEAM OF ANY SCITEX SUBSIDIARY

After being nominated Technical Support Manager, my main goal became providing the best level of support the field organization and the home factory could get. After choosing carefully the members of my team, I forced heavy training upon them and built them into the world-wide accepted creators of knowledge and providers of solutions.

We developed about 10 technical informative publications of “hot-news” distributed and used world-wide, we provided “hot-fresh” information to R&D about machine problems and forced creation of solutions, we were the last line of support for any “hot-spot” customer or problem - everything is solvable was the message.

The presently used main and best service tool in Scitex (called TIC - Technical Information Center) is the result of our idea, after competing successfully inside the company against an Artificial Intelligence based support tool.

SCITEX¹ - SAVED A DEAL WORTH MORE THAN 1 MILLION DM IN NORWAY

I was put in charge of sorting out the situation at a key Norwegian customer where a huge installation was stuck due to overselling, unfulfilled promises, non-existing equipment. The situation was blocked for the better part of a year.

After receiving some basic informative facts, I defined the key problems, organized meetings with all parties involved - Scitex top and technical management, customer top and technical management, Scitex R&D, distributor top and technical management, and pushed to definition of responsibilities and time-tables.

I developed close personal relationships with the customer’s key personnel, and in a few conclusive and focused meetings and technical visits we solved part of the problems, clearly defined and presented those that were unsolvable and the possible workarounds, and finally agreed on mutually acceptable payment terms. Solving this customer re-lit the whole Norwegian market for Scitex.

SCITEX¹ - CREATED A SUPPORT ORGANIZATION RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SATISFACTION AND QUALITY OF ALL EXCLUSIVE DISTRIBUTORS

I put in place a “commando” type organization of 5 people, which supported about 15 independent distributorship organizations supporting a total of about 500 customers and about 20% of the Scitex Europe yearly sales. For comparison, the support organization serving the other 80% of the yearly sales counted about 250 people.

It was made possible due to the building of local (non-Scitex) infrastructure for the distributors, due to technical excellence, and due to our excellent human interface to the internal different Scitex departments. The goodwill and satisfaction created were immense.

I was responsible for an income budget of 5 million DM, which I achieved at a contribution level of around 50%, much more than any other regional support organization (the closest was about 40%, total customer support average was about 13%).

ORBOTECH² - FORCED AN R&D EFFORT AND SOLUTION FOR A COMPLICATED PROBLEM HAUNTING A KEY ORBOTECH PRODUCT

As Plotters Technical Manager I mapped immediately the key problems facing the customers using this product. Several problems pointed in a certain common direction, and I defined it clearly as a need for R&D to work on.

I competed on R&D’s personnel heavily loaded schedule for a need which was pure service, was extremely uninteresting to homequarters, and was theoretically unsolvable due to key R&D (H/W and S/W) developers related to the product leaving the company several months earlier. The continuous focus, clear reporting, personal interraction and enforced co-operation lead finally to an incredible investment in S/W and H/W improvements, bringing this product presently to the same level of performance as all other Orbotech products.

ORBOTECH² - ACHIEVED SAVINGS IN COST OF SHIPMENTS OF SPARE PARTS ON THE ORDER OF 40-50% (AVERAGE)

As a newly nominated Logistics Manager I identified several areas in need of improvement, amongst which a major one was shipments costs control. By limiting the number of suppliers, creating competition among the suppliers, changing company procedures and implementing several self-created control applications – the expenses plummeted dramatically For some services by as much as 85%.



¹ SCITEX - at its peak a 1 billion $ international company, market leader in supplying equipment to the pre-press industry: film imagesetters, direct-to-plate imagesetters, image workstations, colour scanners, image servers, RIP stations.

² ORBOTECH - a 300 millon $ international company, market leader in supplying equipment to the printed circuits industry: automatic optical inspection systems, imagesetters, direct imaging, CAM stations (joint venture).
