INTEGRATED LABOR MANAGEMENT SOLUTION MANAGING MANPOWER IN A LARGE UNIONIZED ENTERPRISE
A review of APTA's "Software in Transit Resource Guide" shows that an overwhelming majority of transit organizations use inhouse developed software, usually several different systems, to perform their timekeeping and other labor management related systems starting from as low as a few hundred dollars. This striking divergence in approach highlights the extent to which enterprises with large unionized labor force find current offerings unsuitable for their labor management needs. This paper introduces Integrated Labor Management Solutions (ILMS), a system intended to fill this void. It covers all segments of the work force, such as represented employees, non-represented employees, hourly and salaried employees, and supports the entire spectrum of operations management activities. In short, ILMS provides an infrastructure that facilitates the collection of information dealing with 4 Ws (Who, When, Where and What), as well as its validation, maintenance, compilation and distribution.
