A new way of working succeeds with Cierpa Kaizen

“Cierpa Kaizen is very easy to use. But people have to let go of their way of working, and that takes some switching. No more emailing each other, but recording everything in Kaizen. But it goes very well because people see the usefulness and importance of it. Ideas from the work floor are now visibly picked up and solved. Everyone can follow the status of an improvement action and see that their action gets results. And that motivates. This leads to a chain reaction; more ideas are submitted, and that is exactly what we want.”

The Kaizen app makes work easier for people on the work floor.

“The Kaizen app really makes work easier for people on the work floor. No more leaving the hall first, washing hands, typing on the computer; just take your mobile phone, take a picture, and upload it. Paper action lists and single Excel lists are a thing of the past."

Frequently Asked Questions

Cierpa Kaizen

View the answers to frequently asked questions about our Kaizen software.

We have three packages: lite, professional, and enterprise. Lite is great for companies that just started improving. Professional is suitable for companies that already know about continuous improvement and want to further their improvement process. Enterprise is ideal for companies that want to improve at multiple locations.

Customers often tell us: “Every improvement project would run out of steam after a while – but now, all of a sudden, it does succeed! How is that possible?

Cierpa Kaizen is an accessible and user-friendly system. Anyone can create an action. You receive an email notification when you need to do something. Whiteboard meetings are supported, so you personally lead each other through the steps you are taking. Cierpa Kaizen keeps everyone focused positively, which means that improvements don’t go unnoticed.

You improve with people, not with software. But the right software does create a positive impulse.

Cierpa Software is easy to use and requires little explanation. A short user training will do.

The culture change that is necessary for successful improvement is a different matter. The role of software is small. Our experienced, independent improvement consultants help you start your improvement trajectory and train people to recognize instances of waste and improve with PDCA.

The software runs through a browser, so nothing needs to be installed. The software still needs to be configured to your situation. We create an organization chart and your people get access. The software is ready for use within 1 day.

Of course, we support Kaizen. That’s why you’ll notice the PDCA cycle everywhere. We support SMED trajectories, Speedy Kaizens, and 15-step Kaizens. Our digital whiteboards help you improve with DMAIC, makigamis, fishbone analyses, and more.

Take pictures of a situation and place them directly in Cierpa Kaizen. That’s really useful for shift supervisors to report an unsafe situation, for example. You may need to have a discussion on using cell phones on the work floor. That can be avoided with a department tablet that the shift supervisor uses.

Anyone can use Cierpa Kaizen. Simultaneously, from different locations. Cierpa Kaizen does not have the disadvantages of a shared Excel where you have to call someone to ask whether the shared file can be closed or placed back on the server.

We’re glad to help you implement continuous improvement with Cierpa Software. Successful improvement requires a good improvement culture, and that often requires a change in employee behavior. Cierpa Software makes it easy for your people, but change is still a human task. Because we mainly understand computers very well, we’ll connect you with our extensive network of independent improvement consultants. Our consultants have a proven track record in supporting change processes.
