Robocom Launches Improved Labor Productivity Software: R-Labor V10

Jun 28, 2010, 09:00 ET from Robocom Systems International

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. and MARKHAM, Ontario, June 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Robocom Systems International announced today a new release of its Labor Management System, R-Labor.  R-Labor V10 represents Robocom's next step in providing state-of-the-art labor reporting information for now and into the future.

"Today's announcement is the culmination of nearly a year's worth of focused work with a number of key Robocom customers to define, build, test and implement improvements and enhancements to R-Labor," said Fred Radcliffe, President.  "Robocom is keenly focused on the needs of the business leaders held accountable for the day-to-day demands of supply chain execution.  We believe that the increased capabilities of R-Labor v10 will deliver to those managers and supervisors the tools, information and insight they need to run more efficient and effective distribution operations."

Robocom's R-Labor v10 includes:

  • Upgraded web server architecture
  • Thin client – No client installation needed (only web browser required)
  • Reports have been further refined to meet client requests for usability
  • Upgraded interface for easier integration with any WMS
  • Enhancements to simplify the implementation of R-Labor with Benchmark Standards, as an alternative to Engineered Standards.  Benchmark standards allow for less costly and quicker implementation, making R-Labor a valuable tool for operations with less than 50 employees.

Due to Robocom's work with existing customers in defining the next generation of Labor Management Software, R-Labor is currently operating in customer sites supporting fresh and frozen meats, dry grocery and confectionary products.  Feedback from Robocom customers is that the supervisor functions are easier to use and productivity gains have produced impressive paybacks.

Fred Radcliffe continued on to say, "One aspect of R-Labor v10 that we are very excited about is the ability of R-Labor to support a labor management solution using either Engineered Standards or Benchmark Standards.  The larger warehouse operations will realize the greatest benefits from an Engineered Standards implementation while mid-sized operations will be able to implement a cost effective solution using the Benchmark Standards.  We believe that this new capability is unique in the industry."

Robocom's R-Labor labor management solution was first released in 1992, and since that time has been continually enhanced in order to meet the increasing demands and requirements of distribution center and warehouse operations.

Fred Radcliffe continued on to say, "We are very fortunate to have key customers work with us to identify and define the enhancements and additional functionality that will help them continue to capture productivity gains in their operations.  There is no substitute for building functionality to meet customers' needs.  We are confident that R-Labor will help our customers deliver on the promise of productivity gains."
