enVista, a leading consulting and software solutions firm, announces its inclusion as a sample vendor for Workforce Management Systems (for Logistics) in “IT Market Clock for Supply Chain Execution Technology, 2017” published by Gartner, Inc., a leading information technology research and advisory company.
According to Gartner, “Labor is typically one of the top-three cost items in a logistics operation. A typical warehouse might be performing at 50% to 70% of optimal performance through the use of performance management tools and a good WMS. The implementation of a WFM system can bring a warehouse to 90% or more of optimal performance. The deployment of pay-for-performance schemes based on engineered labor-standard goal times can move a warehouse up to 110% to 120% of the ‘optimal’ level for true best-in-class performance. Sometimes, these systems can be used to evaluate temporary labor to determine whether a full-time offer should be extended based on performance.” 1
enVista Vice President and Labor Management Solutions practice leader Tom Stretar said, “In a tight labor market, many companies are realizing increased efficiencies and savings through workforce management solutions. As manufacturers, distributors, and retailers look to gain competitive advantage and gain inventory visibility, labor productivity is one of the variables they should address in order to provide a seamless customer experience.”
enVista’s workforce management services include: workforce management engineered labor standards and preferred methods, labor management systems (LMS) implementations and systems training, incentive-based pay programs, and training and change management. enVista’s workforce management team brings extensive experience with LMS applications including JDA/RedPrairie, Manhattan Associates, HighJump, NextView and homegrown legacy solutions.
