enVista, a leading enterprise and supply chain consulting services firm announced today that it is teaming up with its client and North America’s second largest 3PL, GENCO ATC, to present at Manhattan Associates’ annual user group conference, Momentum 2012. Held in Orlando, Florida, May 6-9, Momentum 2012 will draw an audience of more than 1,000 supply chain leaders and decision-makers.

Labor Management Systems provide a powerful means of improving labor productivity and savings,” said Ken Mullen, senior managing partner at enVista. “However, maximum results are achieved when companies take a strategic, ongoing labor management approach to support their business objectives. Our presentation will help attendees understand how to develop and implement a successful labor management strategy for their own business.”

Mullen and GENCO ATC’s Director of Labor Management Services, Melinda Laake, will present Labor Management Success: How GENCO ATC Took a Strategic Approach to Labor Management to Drive Maximum ROI/Productivity Gains to Momentum attendees on Monday, May 7 from 3:15-4:15 p.m. The presentation will highlight how GENCO ATC developed a comprehensive labor management strategy that incorporates analysis, engineered labor standards, best-in-class systems and change management in order to support their business goals and drive maximum results. Manhattan Associates’ Labor Management System was implemented across GENCO ATC sites as part of the project.

“We are really looking forward to co-presenting with our valued client, GENCO ATC,” said Mullen. “Labor management remains an important area of focus for GENCO ATC’s continuous improvement efforts. Supporting multiple clients with varying distribution requirements results in significant operational complexity for most 3PLs, requiring a disciplined labor approach for optimal order accuracy, efficiency and consistency. Labor management programs help all companies improve customer service, labor productivity and profitability, and enables logistics service providers to better understand the actual cost of value-added services for each client.”

Momentum 2012 will take place at the Hilton Orlando in Orlando, Florida from May 6-9, 2012. More information on this convention and registration can be found at http://www.manh-momentum.com
