    While business intelligence tools typically analyze sales and financial data, the new RF-SMART Warehouse Intelligence Module powered by Q4bis provides a unique view into employee productivity and workload planning in a logistics environment.

Now, a warehouse manager can clearly identify which employees are most productive, what type of work each employee is performing and how efficiently they perform their tasks. Logistics transaction data can be grouped by person, product, transaction or time period, and standard drill downs provide in-depth views of what's happening and when. And being so easy to learn and use, warehouse managers can quickly take action to generate ROI benefit.

"Our new RF-SMART Warehouse Intelligence Module gives our customers easy visibility into the productivity trends, details and relationships of their data - the type of information necessary to understand and improve user productivity," said Jorge F. Morales, President and CEO of ICS. "This tool also helps warehouse managers baseline task time and estimate future work volume and resource needs."

"ICS chose to ally with Q4bis based on their excellent reputation and their proven suite of BI products," Morales also said.

Louis-Philippe Lalonde, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at Q4bis, said, "We are excited about partnering with ICS on this innovative joint solution. The Warehouse Intelligence Module powered by Q4bis is another great reason to choose RF-SMART."

Customers who saw the new module unveiled at the recent RF-SMART User Group Conference agreed that visibility into employee performance offers significant advantages.

"In a distribution environment, the ability to slice and dice RF-SMART transaction data can play a critical role in increasing a company's overall efficiency," said Jeff Hope, ERP Manager for DJO, LLC. "Analyzing your data with these out-of-the-box views can help you learn where you have productivity issues and determine where to make necessary adjustments."
