Maximize Labor Utilization with Sightlines into Associate Activity and Costs
As labor markets tighten, and operations become leaner, understanding your cost and productivity of labor is crucial. Not just those employees who are performing in WMS, but 100% of labor-related costs. iWAREHOUSE Labor Management System (LMS) provides business analytics to maximize employee utilization and productivity.

Understand Your True Cost to Operate
Detailed cost-to-serve visibility at the transaction level by employee, process, customer, and other factors is critical to understand your true cost to operate. Where are you winning and where are you losing? iWAREHOUSE Cost-to-Serve approach takes big data and translates that into quick, actionable analytics to help drive business decisions.
More Than Just Moving Faster
With labor expenses accounting for more than 70% of the average facility budget (and growing), tracking labor productivity is critical to helping you measure, retain and allocate employees to manage and reduce costs effectively. Enhancing employee productivity ensures teammates are being highly utilized by eliminating wasted time, keeping them on high value tasks by minimizing indirect activity, and driving throughput.
A Key to Fairness and Productivity
iWAREHOUSE LMS has the ability to leverage big data to create data-driven labor standards. By looking at system activity, and large amounts of your data to determine what your standards should be, you can leverage a system without the extra cost burden of standards development.
Drive Overall Employee Effectiveness
Despite being productive while working, many facilities have greater than 25% of total paid hours unaccounted for. That means that you’re paying employees despite them not necessarily being on high-value tasks. Learn more about how our LMS and telematics solutions can help you understand and maximize employee utilization and time.
Benefit From Self-funded, System-calculated Incentive Programs
Paying incentive is one of the hot buttons in today’s operational world. We want to maintain top employees and drive productivity, but the thought of blindly increasing base pay across the board doesn’t always make sense from an overall business perspective; Pay-for-Performance is a good option. Learn more about how iWAREHOUSE LMS can help you to implement an effective and fair incentive program.
A Cost-effective Approach to Data Systems Integration
The Internet of Things (IoT) is here to stay. As time progresses, more and more devices produce data that, when leveraged properly, can help to tell us a more complete story of what is occurring in our operations. But not every system speaks the same “language”. Understanding how to integrate their different data sets can be complicated and costly. Let our experienced team help you navigate this process with confidence.
