Enhance workforce performance and increase profitability through LMS selection and implementation.

Facilities only operate at 60-70 percent of their potential without a labor management system (LMS).

A LMS is a Supply Chain Execution (SCE) solution that calculates the expected time a task should take, provides real-time feedback and measures and reports effectiveness. It’s important to note that this is a people-based program, not merely an IT project. Our expert consultants follow our proven enABLE™ methodology to ensure that you have not only a successful LMS implementation, but also a winning long-term solution, delivered on time and on budget.

Generally speaking, LMS implementations give companies improved manpower planning and scheduling, reduced dependency on temporary labor, reduced overtime, improved customer service and optimized use of systems and equipment. Employees tend to be more motivated and have clearer goals thanks to feedback offered by supervisors and the LMS. There is reduced variability of task performance, improved employee morale and retention, and enhanced communication between employees and management.

These benefits begin to accrue for some organizations in as little as 12 weeks from implementation.

enVista clients benefit from the quality and continuity of a dedicated, experienced team. First, we identify operational requirements as they pertain to the overall business strategy. Then we map out an effective and seamless implementation plan. Finally, we ensure an efficient operation and a well-trained user team capable of leveraging the new technology solution. We partner closely with clients through all phases of development and deployment to ensure proper knowledge transfer.

The core of our implementation success is our proven enABLE™ methodology, which consists of four key phases of implementation:

  • Assess. We objectively evaluate clients’ operational requirements to determine how to resolve business challenges and gaps through project planning, conducting a baseline education, defining the requirements, conduct conference room pilot planning and a conference room pilot.
  • Build. Along with you, we execute upon the system design through a combination of technicaly development and best-in-class operational process changes.
  • Learn. We place a great deal of importance on training and application testing. Our methodology is designed to effectively transition knowledge to the client through mentoring and guidance.
  • Execute. We execute on the project plan and begin using the solution in a live environment. Post-implementation support addresses any system challenges, stabilizing the workforce and ramping the operation to standard throughput levels.
