BETTER RESOURCE PLANNING
BETTER LABOR MANAGEMENT
In order to achieve peak workforce productivity, workers need to understand clearly what it takes to achieve or exceed expectations – and what the reward will be for doing so. Through Royal 4 Systems automation, enterprises can automatically calculate and distribute personal performance goals and metrics to workers, providing a vehicle for continuous everyday improvement in workforce productivity levels. Instead of presenting employees with a piece of paper that outlines goals each quarter or at the half year mark, employees can access their personal daily goals right on their mobile computers at the start of each work day. And at the end of the day (or other preferred interval), employees can view their performance improvement and how close they are to achieving their personal goals – as well as departmental goals.
WISE – LABOR MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
The automation of many tasks can result in significant improvement of worker productivity throughout the yard, enabling the same staff to handle an increase in volume in the yard – without affecting service levels. For example, at the guardhouse, the reduction in paperwork enables guards to handle more transactions. When a yard dog is outfitted with a mobile RFID reader, a worker can take a complete inventory in a typical warehouse yard that is approximately 350k to 500k square feet in just twenty minutes – a task that can often take up to half a day. And instead of searching for the right trailer, workers on yard dogs are now provided with the exact location of the right trailer – and a quick scan of the RFID tag with a handheld or vehicle-mount mobile computer provides a valuable double-check to ensure the trailer is correct.
