Exotic Metals: Managing Human Resources to Improve Profitability

Aerospace manufacturer experiences exponential growth

With Exotic’s explosive growth came several challenges:

  • An underdeveloped workforce: 66% of Exotic employees have worked for the company for less than five years
  • A competitive talent market: Exotic operates in a thriving and highly competitive market with Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Blue Origin, and others headquartered nearby

Attracting and retaining bright, highly trained, skilled employees is critical in an industry where manufacturing tolerances are incredibly challenging.

Today, all Exotic shop floor employees, supervisors, and management have real-time access into all attendance, labor, and performance metrics via ShopVue. The system automatically manages Exotic’s policies, and the company has eliminated multiple systems and databases and allowed for the re-allocation of numerous employees. Furthermore, supervisors can control production by dispatching worklists on the fly to machines and operators.

“ShopVue’s support is the best of any software company we work with.
No other company is even close.”
