Together with the IBS WMS, customers will have the tools necessary to create and sustain a high performance operation and culture."

Under the agreement, the TZA ProTrack Labor Management Software will be available with IBS Dynaman, IBS' Warehouse Management System (WMS), targeting key verticals like pharmaceuticals, food & beverage, automotive aftermarkets, 3PL and wholesale distribution.

"Managing labor performance in a more strategic manner has been shown to yield 10 percent to 15 percent improvements in productivity and corresponding reductions in labor costs," said Tim Conroy, General Manager for the Americas, IBS.  "The TZA software solution helps organizations optimize workforce performance and utilization by providing better labor visibility, labor planning, incentive programs and more.  The partnership is the latest IBS initiative to expand our product footprint, help our mid-market distribution customers strike the right strategic balance between labor needs and automation in their warehouses and DCs, and realize supply chain productivity gains."
