Sortimo workplace organisation
Greater efficiency in day-to-day working

Time-consuming searching in your vehicle or at the workplace appears unprofessional and costs time: time that you could be using more profitably. Sortimo’s new workplace organisational systems overcome this problem. We create a highly efficient working environment that saves time and money and guarantees a professional image towards clients, thanks to mySortimo labels and tool inlays, developed on the basis of the 5S method.

The 5S-method in brief

Sortimo integrates the 5S method into vehicles, a method firmly established within the industry.

The method, which comes from Japan, aims to optimise workplaces in terms of organisation and cleanliness, to ensure maximum productivity. SR5 van racking provides all the requirements for this: Special configuration options customised to workflows ensure maximum organisation thanks to sub-division, labelling and tool inserts, together with integrated systemisation using our cases and BOXXes.

Storage space and payloads are limited, particularly in your vehicle. Another reason to transport just the things you actually need. SR5 van racking provides a comprehensive overview in the vehicle and helps to identify tools or small components and organise them if required. This frees up more storage space for transport and also reduces the vehicle’s fuel consumption as a result of the reduced overall weight.

Set in order

Work processes can be optimised by systematic organisation in the vehicle, minimising the time needed to search for and find things. Sophisticated arrangement of objects helps with efficient access to the contents. For example, we can eliminate the need to enter the vehicle by placing frequently used objects close to the vehicle doors.

Cleanliness in the vehicle reduces the time it takes you to access contents, at the same time increasing safety at work. In addition, this is the best advertisement to your customer of your profession­al working methods. Unlike an untidy vehicle, structured organi­sation in the SR5 van racking makes it possible to clean the load area simply and without the need for time-consuming clearing out. Incorporating the vehicle interior into regular vehicle maintenance definitely pays off.

Standardize

Setting standards in your vehicle and workshop? Sortimo provides you with the perfect solution to do so! The use of colour codes identifies where things belong at a glance. The structure can be individually defined. For instance, you might structure the system according to the type of content (e.g. tools, consumables, etc., and/or screws, rawlplugs, etc.), according to vehicle or employee (e.g. Red = Employee A, Green = Employee B, etc.) or based on your own individual ideas. The systematic use of standard cases and BOXXes also makes it possible to standardise and ensure that everything fits together! For example, the L-BOXX is a packaging solution for tools and consumables widely used in the marketplace.

Self-discipline

It’s also easier to discipline yourself to make use of the organisational and cleaning rules in view of the aforementioned benefits. Continuous improvement forms part of the 5S method. For this reason, your workflows always need to be critically scrutinised to maximise any potential for improvement. The flexibility of the SR5 van racking system provides for a number of adaptation options, and so it can be adapted to meet the continuously changing requirements in the world of work.
