At JDA, Every Day Is Labor (Management) Day

In honor of Labor Day, JDA emphasizes the importance of workforce management — and announces new capabilities aimed at optimizing labor investments

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.--()--Created in 1887, Labor Day honors the achievements of the American workforce. Because labor management solutions from JDA Software Group, Inc. support the efficiency and productivity of millions of employees, JDA today announced new capabilities in version 9.0 that enhance the capabilities of these hard-working solutions.

“In today’s omni-channel, hypercompetitive business environment, employees are a critical asset for every company,” said Tom Kozenski, vice president, solution strategy at JDA Software. “By giving employees the best-in-class tools they need to excel in the workplace — such as task management solutions and mobile dashboard and event management technologies — companies are making an investment in their future success. At JDA, improving productivity continues to be one of our primary areas of focus as we equip our customers to succeed in a tough business landscape. With today’s low unemployment rates, the demand for good, skilled employees is very strong. JDA’s workforce management solutions are geared toward helping our customers become employers of choice by providing them with solutions that support a high performance workforce.”

Two of JDA’s key productivity solutions — JDA® Warehouse Management™ and JDA® Warehouse Labor Management (formerly RedPrairie) — now feature upgraded capabilities that improve workforce communications and productivity:

  • JDA Warehouse Management focuses on both user empowerment and operational efficiency. It provides a “control tower” for each employee role, allowing users to handle the most pressing issues in real time while keeping an eye on their day-to-day tasks — resulting in maximum user productivity. A “smart configurator” defines the most efficient workflows for accomplishing tasks, while improved mobility allows managers to respond to business demands both inside and outside the facility, via their own personal devices. JDA Warehouse Management also links to JDA® Supply Chain Executive™, a mobile app that allows executives to view a variety of business metrics in real time, including labor performance.
  • JDA Warehouse Labor Management helps customers transform their businesses via a performance-focused culture. It increases workers’ responsibility and accountability for their own performance — and empowers supervisors to become better coaches and mentors. The proven methodology and change management process that underlie this solution are supported by the industry’s best labor-management technologies.

These new JDA labor management capabilities will be highlighted at a series of events in upcoming months, aimed at showcasing the role of the workforce in supply chain success. Learn more about how JDA solutions are amplifying employees’ efforts by attending these informative events:

“Labor Day seems an appropriate occasion to emphasize JDA’s commitment to making employees’ work more streamlined, more impactful and more rewarding across the supply chain,” said Kozenski. “In today’s tough economic environment, employees want to contribute in a meaningful way — and their contributions represent one of an organization’s greatest assets in maximizing productivity, delivering outstanding service and earning financial returns. At JDA, we celebrate and support the supply chain workforce every day of the year.”
