Company Profile

What information is needed when creating a profile for my company?

Each company will need to enter the following information to create a profile: a valid email address, a physical address, a payment method, and two company logos.

What other details should I consider including in my company’s profile?

Companies may also provide links to online resources, such as a company website, a brief company bio, and up to 5 additional reference documents referencing safety and quality policies, facility information, etc.   Please do not include anything that would be considered confidential or sensitive company information.

Posting Ops

What information is needed when posting an Op?

Op postings contain the basic information about the Op:

1. Op Name – Short name to describe the Op (note: names can relate to part/product numbers, task descriptions, etc.)

2. Contact Person – Primary point of contact to meet upon arrival

3. Op Type – Select from four basic types/terms of the work: Piece Work – Product, Piece Work – Subassembly, Piece Work – Task, and Hourly. These will determine how the operators will be paid.
Note: We recommend that companies use Piece Work terms to maximize your labor productivity

4. Rally Point – Specific location on site where Operators should arrive and meet the Contact Person (e.g., Gate A, Taylor Street Entrance, etc.)

5. Skills – Most relevant skill required for the Op: Machining, Assembly, Warehousing, and Electrical/Test

6. Date – The date you need the Op performed

7. Time (Earliest and Latest Start Times) – Establish the earliest and latest time of day that the operator can arrive to perform the work

8. Piece Work Details (if applicable) – Bid Quantity (# of units/tasks), Piece Rate (pay per piece), and Estimated Minutes Per Unit (expected time to complete one unit/task)
Note: The estimated hourly rate that results from a Piece Work Op must be above the minimum wage in your state

9. Hourly Details (if applicable) – Hourly pay rate and estimated total hours for the Op
Note: Hourly rate must be greater than or equal to the minimum wage for your state

10. Op Description – Brief description of the Op (250 max characters)

Who will be able to view my postings?

Every qualified operator on the Veryable platform within a 50-mile radius will be able to view your postings.

Who will be able to bid on my postings?

Any qualified operator within a 50-mile radius can bid on your postings.  You will have the ability to select the individual best suited to perform the Op.  You may also invite any Operator on the platform to accept your Op using the “Invite” option.  Every qualified operator has been fully vetted and background checked and are covered by Veryable liability insurance.

How many Ops can be posted?

You can post an unlimited number of Ops and bids can be awarded at any point before the Op start time.

Can I cancel or edit Ops?

You are able to cancel or edit any posted Op up to 24 hours in advance.  Any edits will automatically wipe clean any pending or accepted bids, so the bidding process will start over.  Any Ops within 24 are considered frozen and cannot be cancelled or edited.

Awarding Ops

How do I award a bid?

Once an Op has been posted, operators will be allowed to bid on the Op.  Bids can be awarded at any point prior to the time of the Op.

How will I be able to identify the right candidate?

Each operator has a profile highlighting skills, Op history, and performance ratings to allow you to assess the best match for your business.  Veryable’s internal logic will work to highlight and promote the most qualified candidates to meet the needs of your business, specifically those that have prior positive experience at your site.

Can I reach out to potential operators directly who have not bid yet on my posted Ops?

Yes.  An option is provided on the web portal to allow you to search operator profiles and send direct “invites” to any appropriate candidates.

Managing Veryable Operators

Who from my company should be responsible for posting and awarding Ops?

In theory, anyone with access to the platform can create Ops and accept bids so this will be dependent on your company’s policies and preferences.  However, we find that the best results occur when the process is managed by either the Shop Operations Manager, Master Scheduler, or HR Manager/Admin.

How do I manage Veryable operators when they arrive on site?

Similar to the bidding process responsibilities, this should be determined by each company.  However, we recommend that the supervisor or group leader overseeing the specific department where the work is being performed serve as the contact person to greet and guide the operator to the work location.  Alternatively, and depending on the volume/frequency of Ops, companies can nominate someone from HR or a different function to serve this role on a full time or part time basis.

How do I ensure the work has been performed to my company standards?

The Op is only considered complete after the Op has been marked as complete in the system by a member of your company.  Prior to doing so, you will want to inspect the work and ensure all final products, assemblies, etc. are built to your quality standards.

How do I ensure high productivity for each operator?

Due to the piece work nature of most Veryable Ops, operators are paid based on output so it will be his or her responsibility to minimize non-productive work, i.e., your company will incur no additional cost for lost productivity.  However, to ensure efficient turnaround time for each Op, you are encouraged to provide as much work instruction and guidance as possible.

Should I rate the operator after the completion of the Op?

We require that all Operators are rated after the completion of the Op.  Please be candid in your assessment.  The ratings system is an important tool in the process of matching Operators and businesses, and accurate ratings will lead to better work arrangements in the future.

Will Veryable arbitrate in the event of a non-routine issue or offense?

The ratings system will be the mechanism by which we will continuously evaluate minor offenses, but Veryable will investigate and arbitrate in the event of a more serious issue (e.g., disputes over payment/work quality, disruption, etc.).  Outcomes may involve operator suspension or termination depending on the results of the investigation.

Are Veryable Operators Insured?

Yes.  All Veryable Operators are covered by Veryable with General Liability, Business Liability, and Worker’s Compensation insurance.

Payment

When will I be charged for the work performed?

If your primary method of payment is via debit/credit card or bank account, your account will be charged weekly on Sunday evenings for all Ops completed over the prior week.  If your primary method of payment is EDI, Veryable will initiate and send a weekly invoice for all Ops completed over the prior week.

What will I end up paying for the work performed?

You will only be charged for the value described in the bid (i.e., quantity x rate) plus the Veryable surcharge.  Veryable will manage all other operator costs, such as payroll taxes, insurance, and other operator benefits.

Best Practices

How should I start using Veryable?

We recommend identifying specific products and processes that are well documented and repeatable, e.g., high runner subassemblies, built to stock products, pick lists/kitting, packages, parts warehousing, etc.  Once you become comfortable with lower complexity items, this should give you a better idea for how to bid and manage work on higher complexity products, subassemblies, etc.  Please contact us for details on specific use cases or to schedule an on-site consultation.

How does Veryable impact workflow in my plant/facility?

The inherent benefit of on-demand piece work labor is that productivity is eliminated as a concern in the implemented areas.  Therefore, the importance of a highly synchronized progressive build assembly process is diminished.  Work flow can be reorganized into specific cells or other constructs that focus more on operator enablement, quality, and safety than maximizing labor efficiency (since the latter is built into the bid price per unit).

What operations in my plant/facility are appropriate for the Veryable model?

The on-demand model can be applied to any operation that does not require a highly specialized, company-specific skill.  However, high value opportunities may include products and processes with high volume volatility that require agile labor capacity, areas that have traditionally low labor productivity that can be recalibrated using a piece work model, etc.  Veryable representatives and preferred partners will be available to assist in helping you evaluate value creation potential upon request.

What can I do to maximize impact?

Operator enablement and robust safety and quality programs will go a long way to maximizing the impact of on-demand labor.  In terms of operator enablement, work instructions (either paper or digital), diagrams/illustrations, efficient material presentation, and proactive support/supervision are all practical considerations.  Other digital solutions like augmented reality and operator alerts can be extremely valuable.  In terms of safety and quality programs, in-process testing mechanisms, sensing technologies, and poke yoke solutions will help ensure that output is first time right, yielding a better experience for your business and the Veryable operator.
