Indianapolis—Feb. 19, 2013—enVista unveiled its enCompass labor standards application, a comprehensive data source for labor standard processes and associated time measurements related to tasks across manufacturing, supply chain and retail.
“We developed enCompass in response to market demand for a comprehensive labor standards tool that can be rapidly deployed and leveraged in distribution and retail environments,” explained Tom Stretar, Labor Management Practice Leader, enVista. “Labor productivity standards, along with Preferred Methods, enable companies to develop metrics for measuring facility and user performance for tasks in a warehouse or store environment, alongside or in the absence of a labor management system. When companies can leverage proven industry standards, the time to deployment is significantly decreased. Until now, few effective tools have been available, especially for companies using packaged Labor Management applications (LMS). We are pleased to offer clients an easy-to-use, easy to deploy solution to help optimize labor productivity.”
enVista’s labor standards database was developed based on 60 years of combined labor management experience working with clients across a variety of industries. The scalable, cloud-based solution can be rapidly deployed and encompasses nearly all standards clients need to improve employee staffing and utilization by department, shift and functional area across retail, manufacturing and supply chain operations.
“We are excited to launch encompass to extend the value of our labor management services, dramatically improve clients’ labor productivity and significantly reduce the time and investment clients spend on labor standards development,” said Jim Barnes, President and Chief Executive Officer, enVista.
“enCompass users realize many benefits including faster time to value through reduced implementation requirements and effort; improved utilization of workforce through more effective manpower planning; significantly reduced labor costs; the ability to model changes to standards and tasks; a highly scalable and easy to deploy cloud-based application; integration with all major Labor Management Systems (LMS); or the ability to deploy independent of an LMS,” continued Barnes. “Users will also have the support of enVista experts with more than 60 years of combined experience.”
