Labour optimisation from Manhattan

Manhattan Associates has released a labour forecast/optimisation application designed for the needs of distribution managers. Manhattan Associates’ new labour forecast/optimisation functionality, embedded in the Labour Management Solution, enables distribution managers to forecast the number of employees required to perform estimated work down to the day, shift, job and zone level.

“Optimising labour is quickly becoming one of the most significant challenges facing distribution operations,” said Jim Tompkins, president and CEO of consultants Tompkins Associates. “Manhattan Associates’ innovative approach to providing visibility to future demand is a huge step toward solving the labour optimisation problem.”
