This level of detail enables managers to reward, coach, or provide additional training when needed. Each individual is unique and finding the best-suited position where an individual succeeds is beneficial to an organization and to a team member. In addition, when performance numbers rise, so do profits.
Even the most sophisticated fulfillment center still needs labor and labor shortages are a huge concern at any facility. Unemployment rates continue to drop and budgets for higher pay are still slow to increase. Gaining productivity is necessary for any organization to compete in this market. Distribution fulfillment for e-commerce has additional challenges like same day turnaround, special promotions, and peak season volumes to consider. Operations must learn how to manage effectively and optimize their current labor force.
However, managing labor efficiently is only half of the equation. WAMAS LRM, labor resource management software, enables management to gain insights into how labor is performing. These insights give a holistic approach when understanding how labor interacts with material flows and specific processes. Even the slightest process enhancement can increase ROI and knowing where bottlenecks are occurring is a significant hurdle.
With WAMAS Labor Resource Management (LRM), users receive insights and capabilities into understanding the entire warehouse and fulfillment workforce ecosystem. Knowing how a certain employee handles a specific procedure or knowing when to schedule additional resources for a particular promotion can make the difference between a smooth fulfillment operation and one that is reactive.
WAMAS optimizes your labor force and unlocks the most productive of days—even during peak season and during BOGO promotions. WAMAS schedules resources and provides planning tools that boost productivity by indicating tasks or special assignments to employees who are up for the challenge. Understanding who performs better at specific functions enables labor optimization for specific circumstances. Real-time monitoring ensures procedure adherence, provides processes checks and eliminates bottlenecks. With WAMAS resource planning, gain visibility into workloads, order histories, and downtime and empower your team.
