Improved Workforce Performance Helps IBS Customers Drive Productivity and Quality Improvements

SOLNA, Sweden, March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- International Business Systems (IBS), a global leading integrated ERP and supply chain solution provider, today announced a partnership with TZA to add a best-of-breed labor management system (LMS) to the IBS Business Suite, resulting in better workforce planning and improved productivity in warehouse and distribution center environments.

IBS.

IBS is the trusted industry leader of ERP and WMS distribution software, preferred for consistently improving operational efficiencies and business performance for mid-market companies challenged by the complexities of managing distribution.

TZA is an engineering, technology and consulting company specializing in the optimization of labor performance and operational effectiveness across the enterprise.   TZA's ProTrack Labor Management Software is the industry leading solution and has been successfully deployed across hundreds of sites.

"Logistics operators face a number of workforce issues today, including an aging workforce, a shrinking pool of skilled workers and rising costs," said Steve Simmerman, Senior Vice President of Business Development at TZA.  "TZA is helping companies address these labor challenges at every step in the supply chain.  Working with IBS will help organizations optimize their workforce performance across the supply chain, become more productive and reduce costs. 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."

IBS solutions are designed to provide benefits such as lower IT cost through fixed monthly fees, reduced business risk, faster time to value and greater flexibility combined with the advanced functionality of the industry-leading IBS Business Suite solution.

Today's partnership was announced at IBS Connect, IBS Americas' Customer Conference 2014 in Scottsdale, Ariz., a gathering of thought leaders to discuss business and technology trends, and the future of the supply chain.
