An order can only be regarded as completely fulfilled if the consignment arrives at its destination on time and undamaged. For this to work exactly, it is necessary that many small adjusting screws are perfectly coordinated. For example, the goods must arrive at the transshipment point before they can be further processed. If it is a sensitive delivery that requires a continuous cold chain or the like, time is an even more decisive factor. Hence, it is all the more important that qualified personnel are in the right place at the right time. Requirements of the logistics sector can only be covered as good as possible with well thought-out and needs-based staff scheduling. Workforce Management software can be ideally adapted to these requirements. The focus must be on the needs of the skilled workers in order to enable fair and, at the same time, demand-actuated employee scheduling and capacity planning. At the same time, the company goals are supported in the best possible way so that a win-win situation arises for both workers and the enterprise they. Our software is already helping many companies to master the challenges in the logistics industry.
Time tracking in the logistics sector – anytime and anywhere
In addition to the demand-actuated creation of schedules, time tracking also plays an important role in logistics. Specialists in the transport sector are deployed everywhere and at any time - whether on site in the company or on the road. It is therefore essential that time tracking software can cover these factors and take various requirements into account. Track working times on the go with your smartphone, in the warehouse using a terminal or in the office on a computer - the areas of application are diverse. This creates transparency for office employees who work from home, as well as for those who are on the road or in at the warehouse. Agile personnel processes are thus made possible by precise time tracking options and their connection to personnel scheduling, even in industries that are based on shift work.
One of the decisive factors for proper planning is the compatibility factor. This is due to the fact that Workforce Management software for logistics must also be integrated into an existing software environment in the best possible way. ERP systems, warehouse management software and many other components sometimes come together and must be able to communicate seamlessly with one another. The various interfaces of GFOS’ software ensure that interoperability is given at all times. We offer various payroll interfaces, SAP interfaces and also options for integrating customer-specific requirements. In this way, you can be sure that your processes will continue to be represented transparently.
