Indianapolis-based global supply chain and logistics software solutions and consulting firm recognized for Workforce Management Systems
enVista, a leading software solutions and consulting services firm, announces its recognition as a Sample Vendor for Workforce Management Systems in IT Market Clock for Supply Chain Execution Technology, 2019 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 lead, Tom Stretar said, “In a tight labor market, many companies are continuing to invest in Labor as a key differentiator in providing a seamless customer experience. We believe enVista is equipped to add value to our clients’ investments through our many workforce management services, which optimize labor operations in the best and most efficient way possible.”
