We install Labour Management Systems

Labour management systems measure individual performances against engineered standard times and usually interface with warehouse management and time and attendance systems.

Performances are routinely reported, ideally in real time and used by the organisation to improve productivity. Labour management should also underpin process improvement, workload planning and in some cases, incentive schemes.

For a more information go to our article Labour Management Comes of Age.
