Food for thought in the food and beverage industry.


This is no cookie-cutter software.

We got our start in food and beverage manufacturing 19 years ago and we haven’t looked back. Demand driven scheduling is a critical part of the manufacturing process and just-in-time production can mean just-in-time workforce management. Manual efforts and primitive technology offerings don’t do the trick anymore. Now you need Workloud’s Demand Driven Scheduling, Time & Attendance, and Absence Management software to drive bottom line results.

Want to benchmark your operation against hundreds of other Workloud customers? It can’t hurt and you might gain a few insights.

Case Study - Welch's


If you’ve ever wondered where Welch’s sparkling grape juice is made, look no further than Lawton, MI., located less than 25 miles from Kalamazoo. In September of 2013, the Welch’s Lawton plant transitioned to the Workloud workforce management software application with great success. With more than 70 full-time employees, this manufacturing facility is responsible for all of Welch’s sparkling juice production in the United States. Production demands are complex and change each week depending on factors such as what type of juice is being produced, the amount of railcars available for product distribution, and the supply of raw materials entering the production flow.

Workloud has skimmed 4 hours a week off of my scheduling process. It has saved us both time and money, and the employees love the mobile application
