3PL invests in labour tracking software
08 August 2019
Walker Logistics has invested in labour tracking software from Kronos at its 250,000 sq ft multi-user storage facility in Berkshire.
The technology, which is scheduled to go live early in September, provides Walker with better visibility of its workforce and allows the company to maximise the efficiency of staff across all areas of its business.
In simple terms, the system enables Walker’s shop floor personnel to register exactly what processes they are undertaking and for which particular client account they are working at any given time.
The new system enables the exact amount of time that has been spent on each task – and each client account – to be logged.
The data generated not only allows Walker to optimise the efficiency of its workforce but also gives the company’s customers a clear and transparent breakdown of the work – and, therefore, the costs – involved in managing their supply chain.
