Labor Management Made Simple

We simplify labor management by using an easy-to-maintain configuration that doesn’t need to be updated every time something changes in your warehouse or operation. Simply map your existing WMS transactions into activities, set goal times where applicable, and you’re off and running.

Have a custom field that you want more information on? That’s no problem for Rebus. If an attribute is in your WMS, we can use it to configure your activities whether it is a ship label flag, a customer ID, or an item grouping.

Rebus Labor features interactive widgets that give you performance insight from the enterprise level down to individual employee tasks. Once we’ve set up activity goals, users and shifts, Rebus Labor gets to work, pulling in real-time WMS data. With a single mouse click, you can drill into metrics and pinpoint measured versus unmeasured work issues – and then take steps to optimize labor utilization and productivity. Reporting that’s easy to understand, validating and sharing performance metrics is just as convenient.

Not everyone needs the same insights. Role-based analysis anticipates varying transaction summary requirements across the organization. Executives can make enterprise-level decisions based on aggregated data, supervisors can detect and correct process inefficiencies, managers can determine training deficiencies – and recognize star performers, too!

Multi-Variable vs. Discrete Standards

Rebus Labor supports multi-variable engineered standards.  You can get as complex as you wish when setting up an activity. Use variables such as product class, number of order lines, weight thresholds, and from/to destination identifiers to allow for a precise goal time. Using our advanced activity mapping tool, these attributes are easy to setup and maintain over time.  
 
We avoid using discrete standards with XYZ travel time as our customers have told us that these are often difficult to maintain and you generally need an industrial engineer(s) on staff in order to keep your standards up to date.  We provide a perfect blend of precision, flexibility, and simplicity by letting our customers use attributes that are already being captured in their WMS to configure activities with and report against.  Have a custom field you want included?  That’s no problem for Rebus Labor.
 
Labor Management Made Simple.  We believe you can still get the productivity and performance accuracy you are looking for without overcomplicating the solution.
