Since 1965, J&C Tropicals has taken a farmers-first approach to building the company from a five-acre family farm to a grower and distributor of over 70 tropical fruits and vegetables sourced from 10 countries year-round. J&C Tropicals runs on EOS® and is focusing on improving remote employee productivity of their ever-expanding teams. They chose Ninety.io software to keep their six+ remote teams connected. Almost immediately, CEO Jessie Capote says they started to enjoy the benefits of better communication, easier metrics tracking and improved productivity.
“Although we were already accustomed to working remotely, Ninety allows us to simplify meeting schedules on a weekly basis, whether it is virtual or at the office. Ninety Meetings also eliminates unproductive and ad hoc meetings, which saves a lot of time. That's what the big difference is for us.”
The key to Jessie’s remote employee productivity is tracking at least 60 KPIs through Ninety every week so they can provide their partners with a proven process for growing their organizations. Ninety Whole Company Tools™ also helped J&C Tropicals improve beyond the metrics to implement this four-step process of national distribution, product excellence, next-level relationship coaching, and in-store marketing. The process involves six levels of concentration, including quality production, logistics expertise, and exceptional service.
“Once we started using Ninety, it made it so much easier to track metrics and the communication just got way easier. Ninety just helps tie everything together nicely.”
Through Ninety’s cloud-based features, Jessie and his teams are more disciplined about integrating data, processes, and people into their company vision, not only in the current year but three, five and ten years out.
“Running on EOS prior to using Ninety, everything was written down in workbooks, which can be misplaced. Now that everything is digital, I can't imagine running on EOS without Ninety.”
Improving remote employee productivity never tasted so good!
“Implementing the principles that EOS teaches us through the Ninety.io platform? It's the perfect marriage. We're big fans.”
