Iptor Supply Chain Systems, formerly IBS - the supply chain management, planning and logistics software and services provider – has partnered with TZA, the supply chain labour management solutions provider, to include TZA's ProTrack Labour Management Software as part of its Warehouse Management solution.
TZA's ProTrack software is a Cloud-based solution that helps users measure, monitor and motivate workforce productivity and utilisation for increased performance, lower cost-per-unit and greater competitive advantage.
"Considering that almost 60% of the costs involved in running a distribution centre track directly to labour, adding the proven labour performance capabilities of TZA's ProTrack to our Warehouse Management solution is a huge value-add for our customers," said Jayne Archbold, Iptor Supply Chain Systems CEO.
As an integrated part of Iptor's WMS, ProTrack will give users real-time visibility and decision support for proactively planning, deploying and managing associates on the warehouse floor via any enabled mobile device.
"Logistics operators face critical labour issues today, including an aging workforce, a shrinking pool of skilled workers and rising wage costs," said Evan Danner, CEO at TZA. "Together with Iptor's WMS, ProTrack software provides the tools to respond to these labour challenges and sustain a high performance operation and culture."
"With the ProTrack interface, Iptor's Warehouse Management solution becomes even more powerful for customers," said Bill Tomasi, Iptor Senior Vice President of Product Management. "In addition to excellent control over material movement, storage and the transaction processes associated with running a warehouse, customers will benefit from labour management capabilities that drive additional supply chain productivity gains."
