Supply chain software developer Datex recently added new features to its robust award-winning warehouse management software designed to boost workforce productivity. Clients can now benefit from new labor planning, forecasting and scheduling capabilities.

According to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of job openings in the U.S. transportation and warehousing industries increased 23% year over year in January 2015. Supply chain businesses are finding it challenging to attract, hire and retain the labor needed to run their operations and need help from today’s technology to better manage and optimize their workforce.

Datex recently introduced new features to enable supply chain operations to help improve the productivity and efficiency of labor resources. Users can now utilize new labor scheduling and planning functionality, all from one window. Real time information is segregated on one screen using tabs to provide fast, easy access to data without having to leave the screen. This helps to minimize errors and processing time. As part of the new workforce management functionality, supply chain organizations can identify under-performing shifts or employees, plan for the use of seasonal or temporary workers and better utilize their workforce. The Datex warehouse management software includes customizable reporting and a system of alerts and notifications to provide real time information and status updates to help keep operations on track.

Designed to be user friendly, the new labor management features include the ability to have the warehouse management system automatically assign tasks via workflow for more accurate, efficient operations. The warehousing software also includes the ability to manually assign tasks. Powered by Microsoft Windows Workflow Foundation, Datex FootPrint WMS uses a workflow based task management engine for more accurate, automated operations
