Atlanta, Feb. 6, 2012—Logfire, a cloud-based supply chain solutions and services provider, today announced two new complementary applications to its SaaS warehouse management system: the LogFire Productivity Tracking System for labor management and the LogFire Supply Chain Analytics Dashboard.
LogFire made the announcement and is demonstrating the solution at MODEX 2012 in Atlanta.
“LogFire continues to stretch the capabilities of its Cloud-based supply chain offerings with the introduction of its hosted Productivity Tracking System and Supply Chain Analytics Dashboard,” said Ann Grackin, CEO of ChainLink Research. “By providing warehouse managers with affordable visibility into both their workforce and operations, LogFire is making it easier and more affordable for companies of all sizes to improve their overall supply chain performance.”
An intuitive and interactive Web-based application, the LogFire Supply Chain Analytics Dashboard is a visually rich, customizable reporting tool that provides real-time visibility into overall supply chain performance. An EDI-based data model enables easy integration and data extraction from other systems while real-time alerting is available for such critical activities as inventory thresholds, failed replenishment and inventory shorts. With its intelligent reporting and alerting capabilities, the LogFire SCAD enables distribution center and warehouse managers to:
- Monitor daily operations in real-time
- Analyze aggregated information from multiple systems (ERP, WMS, PTS, etc.)
- Increase overall supply chain efficiencies
- Gain meaningful insights into Key Performance Indicators (KPI) such as: receiving productivity, shipping productivity, outstanding tasks, location utilization, dock-door utilization, order profiles and SKU segmentation, picking and packing accuracy and efficiency.
LogFire PTS is a labor management tool that provides managers visibility to all areas of the warehouse, helps reduce labor inefficiencies, raise overall performance and improve accuracy. Easily integrated into the LogFire WMS or any third-party application, the LogFire PTS measures productivity at the warehouse, functional area and individual employee level. With an easy-to-use web-based interface and radio frequency (RF) functionality, the LogFire PTS enables workforce management against key performance indicators (KPIs), and tracks supplemental activities outside of the WMS. It also can be used to create goals for teams or individual employees, to clock-in/clock-out and for incentive pay analysis. With the LogFire PTS, managers can monitor workforce performance for improved productivity, use historical data to follow trends and plan resources, deploy with a reduced implementation time, and decrease cost of ownership.
“A key factor in determining warehouse performance efficiency is availability of information and how that information can be interpreted to improve productivity,” said Diego Pantoja-Navajas, Founder and CEO, LogFire LLC. “With the LogFire Supply Chain Analytics Dashboard (SCAD) and the LogFire Productivity Tracking System (PTS), LogFire is enabling its customers to make decisions based on real-time information and become true data-driven businesses.”
