Labor Management Made Simple

What if you could deploy exactly the right resources at any given moment within your distribution operation? And understand exactly what each activity costs? With an LMS that’s able to give you real-time insight into every action scheduled and in process, down to the single-employee level, you can answer those questions.

Longbow can help you select, install and configure your LMS to deliver critical metrics that will help you better manage your workforce and your budget. We can implement your LMS as a standalone project or as part of a comprehensive supply chain execution implementation. We can also integrate your LMS with other third-party software.

Proven, Repeatable Implementation Service

Getting the highest level of productivity from your people is why you invest in a labor management system. To attain optimum productivity, the LMS you choose needs to be precisely configured to match how your workforce operates

It’s imperative that you properly define direct and indirect activities, goal times and requisite resources. Longbow’s consultants achieve your labor management objectives, methodically working through a series of tasks including:

  • Reviewing current operational processes and recommend labor standards
  • Defining job codes and key performance indicators (KPIs)
  • Defining schedules, shifts and indirect time for employee time tracking
  • Specifying work categories and equipment used
  • Configuring and testing any integration points
  • Providing customized user training to optimize activities and employ labor management reporting capabilities

Your People Really are Your Most Valuable Asset. Prove it to Them.

The aging workforce is taking tribal knowledge with them as they retire. Meanwhile, recruiting and retaining the right people hinges on meeting new expectations around where and how work gets done. Investing in an innovative LMS and best-in-class deployment is an investment in them as well.

Cope with Reduced Labor Market

Automation can help distribution operations be more efficient, but people still do the most work. A comprehensive WMS/LMS solution equips people with tools to work smarter and safer. For the enterprise, that means increased efficiencies and less turnover. For employees, that means a more favorable work environment and higher job satisfaction.

Empower Management to Do More with Less

Comprehensive visibility lets supervisors make resource management decisions better aligned to operational goals and end-customer needs.

Reward Excellence & Motivate

With either your core LMS or Rebus Labor, Longbow enables you to set realistic performance goals, accurately measure and reward excellence and instill a healthy competitive environment that motivates people.
