Labor Management System Selection LMS

work done right.

make the right choice:

You’ve made the decision to implement a Labor Management System LMS. But where do you begin?

Selecting the right Labor Management System LMS: which one is right for you?

When choosing a new Labor Management System LMS, most supply chain warehouses and distribution centers have similar goals and needs, but each has different nuances. When selecting a solution, most fall into one of three categories:

  1. No current systems in place – Some supply chains have operated effectively for decades without formal warehouse management system WMS or labor management systems and technology.
  2. Currently operating a legacy or home-grown solution – some supply chain operations might use stand-alone warehouse management or labor management systems that are now outmoded or obsolete, but now seek new technology to remain competitive.
  3. Currently operating a Warehouse Management System WMS – but have not made the leap into a Labor Management System LMS. Most WMS systems offer a LMS suite of tools with the features you need to get labor on track.
