Infor Reduces Labor Costs in the Warehouse
Labor Forecasting for Infor SCM Warehouse Management Plans and Predicts Staffing Needs to Meet Dynamic Demand in the Supply Chain
Labor Forecasting utilizes embedded business-specific analytics to enable warehouse managers to precisely forecast the number of workers needed to fulfill and deliver goods on time. It allows managers to adjust planning on the fly and measure results through role-based dashboards that deliver regular updates. Together with the existing capabilities of Infor SCM Warehouse Management, Labor Forecasting allows enterprises to balance work and tasks against available labor, resulting in greater efficiency and a reduction in labor and overtime costs.
Labor Forecasting is a self-contained component that utilizes the advanced service-oriented architecture (SOA) capabilities of Infor SCM Warehouse Management. This component-based approach allows new capabilities to be added, incrementally, without the difficulties associated with traditional software upgrades. As a stand-alone solution, Labor Forecasting works with both Infor SCM Warehouse Management and other applications.
"Labor Forecasting is a powerful addition to Infor SCM Warehouse Management, enabling organizations to accurately plan and deploy their warehouse staff to meet the dynamic demand cycles that are common in complex supply chains," said Eric Nilsson, vice president, product management, Infor. "This is a perfect complement to the existing work management and task management capabilities resident in Infor SCM Warehouse Management. The combined solution helps companies balance work and tasks with available labor to improve productivity and lower order fulfillment and manpower costs. This results in a compelling positive impact on the bottom line."
Infor SCM Warehouse Management is designed to increase agility and efficiency inside and outside the warehouse, supporting technologies such as RF, voice, wave planning, cross docking and labor reporting. Unlike other warehouse management solutions, its reach extends beyond the warehouse walls through capabilities like Yard Management, Event Management, Performance Management, Transportation and Logistics, and RFID.
Infor's Supply Chain Management solutions enable the world's leading companies to improve their profitability, competitiveness and growth through network design, demand and supply chain planning, manufacturing optimization, warehousing, transportation management and supply chain analytics. By synchronizing cycles of demand, supply and replenishment, Infor's solutions allow our customers to move product to their customers quickly and cost-effectively. More details about Infor SCM Warehouse Management and Labor Forecasting will be shared with customers at Inforum 2007, Infor's global customer conference in Las Vegas.
