Increase productivity and employee job satisfaction.
With the ongoing labor shortage, it’s critical that warehouses make the most of every employee they have. To do that, companies must first understand the current state of affairs when it comes to labor performance and utilization so that they can develop effective metrics and labor standards.
LaborExpert™, Made4net’s warehouse labor standards solution, can help companies evaluate their current processes, determine how they can make those processes better, and track progress towards labor performance and utilization goals.
Made4net’s LaborExpert labor management tool goes beyond the ability to adapt to engineered standards and helps companies actually improve standards and calculate productivity goals based on key factors like available personnel, fatigue, and delay allowances. Warehouse mapping, real time dashboards, and system-calculated task times are all part of how LaborExpert takes labor management to the next level.

“Because we are working within a B2B space, we have to execute to perfection,” Lopez says. “We can’t afford to miss a beat because professionals depend on the services we provide to get the job done. If we tell you that you can order until midnight with delivery by 10 am the next morning, and you lose a deal because of us, that’s not acceptable.”Material Bank
With the new system, we have gained four additional days for shipping out packages. This is a big deal for us operationally and for our bottom line. Our fulfillment process is now much faster and smoother given inventory accuracy at the pick line and real-time replenishment. We can ship orders out in no time.Inventory Supervisor, Rotech Healthcare Inc.
