Labor Management System (LMS) Implementations That Don't Suck

Integrating your labor management system (LMS) with your warehouse management system (WMS), time clock, or robotics shouldn't be hard. Takt's revolutionary data integration engine makes integrations easy.


Integrate Data In Minutes

Extract Labor Productivity Data

Export labor activity data from your existing system with no strict format required. Takt will automatically provision an SFTP.

Simple Data Feed Configuration

Setup your feed in minutes. Map columns or fields to the Takt schema and define how Takt should process the field.

Organize Data with Business Rules

Define tags on your data feed then use easy to configure business rules to assign the facility, department, activity, and labor standard.

Integrate Multiple WMS Systems

Many 3PLs and Retailers have multiple warehouse management systems (WMS). Takt can easily consolidate data across systems.

Create Feed within Takt

Login to Takt and create a new transactions or time cards feed. Configure the time zone, tags used for identifying data, and identify the columns along with the transforms. Takt will automatically provision and SFTP server along with credentials to authenticate.

Send Data to Takt

Export data from your warehouse management system (WMS) and/or time clock. Schedule send this data to Takt every 10-15 minutes.

Define Feed Rules

Once data is flowing, define feed rules that automatically categorize your data into the proper department/client and activity. The rules will also assign the proper labor standard to each transaction.

Monitor Feeds

Easily monitor data coming from the warehouse management system (WMS) or time clock directly in the user interface.

Optimize Your Warehouse

Dashboards and reports will start populating with actionable insights for your operations team.

What is a warehouse management system (WMS) module?

A warehouse management system (WMS) module is a software component that performs a specific function within a WMS. WMS modules can be used to manage a variety of warehouse operations, including:

  • Inventory management
  • Order fulfillment
  • Labor management
  • Equipment management
  • Transportation management

WMS modules are typically integrated with each other and with other enterprise systems, such as ERP and CRM systems.

However, warehouse management systems (WMS) focus on core functionality which means modules like Labor Management and Transportation Management are difficult to implement and hard to use. We have heard from customers that Labor Management Systems (LMS) from WMS providers don't gain traction and therefore don't drive savings.

What is the difference between a warehouse management system (WMS) and a labor management system (LMS)?

A warehouse management system (WMS) is a software solution that helps businesses manage their warehouse operations. It tracks inventory levels, optimizes order fulfillment, and automates tasks such as picking, packing, and shipping. A labor management system (LMS) is a software solution that helps businesses manage their workforce. It tracks employee performance, schedules shifts, and forecasts labor needs.

The main difference between a WMS and an LMS is that a WMS focuses on managing inventory and order fulfillment, while an LMS focuses on managing the workforce. However, the two systems are often integrated, as they both play a vital role in the efficient operation of a warehouse.
