Analytics report can give a clear picture about the supply chain or indicate which areas can be improved.

Supply chain analytics can help to assign the right laborers to the right processes and reduce the work cost and time spent. With that collected data, many workforce issues can be addressed

Analytics reports can be used also to find the impact of the labor cost: discover if your company are using the workforce in the best way or if you have to change the entire organization.
