How to Optimize the Performance of Your Network without the Hassles of Change Management
Sign up for the Webinar: The Magic of Multi-Site Analytics
Operations leaders are tasked with driving efficiencies and performance across their warehouse operations. While Labor Management Systems can provide powerful and tactical visibility into productivity, they require more change management than some businesses are ready for — especially when there are multiple warehouses in the network.
There is a better way to drive your cost and performance initiatives: by having a complete view of your warehouse data across all of your facilities in one place. You can take a network-scale view of your operations and target your improvement initiatives with minimal change management hassle.
Benchmarking & Identifying Waste At The Network Level
Tactical labor management at the facility level cannot expose cost savings opportunities that are possible with a network view. It’s possible that one facility in your network may have excellent performance scores, but is running at an unusually high cost. That cost disparity — and therefore a savings opportunity — will be completely unnoticed if you don’t have the data to look at the entire network and compare facilities’ metrics against one another. Comparing sites against benchmarks helps you identify waste and know where your cost centers are so that you can take action.
The Unspoken Truth about Labor Management
Labor Management is a catch-all category synonymous with productivity scores. But productivity metrics alone are not enough to drive operational efficiencies at scale in a single- or multi-site operation. Bloated cost centers are usually in missing time, indirect time, and inefficient processes – not productivity. You can drive major operational efficiencies with a unified data stack alone, and add on the labor management across the network later when you are ready.
What’s Hiding in your Disparate Data
There’s a trove of unearthed insights in the data you already have — in your job code system and WMS. When you capture the source data, merge, normalize, and transform it, your warehouse data becomes usable as a management tool. Instead of wrangling spreadsheets, you’ll have up-to-date insights into your cost centers and be able to pinpoint areas of waste. Let us show you how in our Webinar.
