July 06, 2011

TZA, an industry leading provider of supply chain productivity software and services, announced today that it has formed an alliance with The Createch Group,  a leading Canadian provider of operational performance improvement and information technology (IT) solutions integration. Both organizations deliver extensive supply chain market experience to clients looking to further improve their supply chain productivity and reduce costs. Under the terms of the agreement, The Createch Group obtains the rights to distribute and implement TZA’s ProTrack Warehouse - Labor Management Solutions (LMS) to support its engineered labor standards services.

ProTrack is a state-of-the-art labor management system that enables distribution centers to monitor employee’s individual daily performance. A best-in-breed stand-alone application, ProTrack can be seamlessly integrated directly into most existing warehouse management solutions or enterprise management systems.

Steve Simmerman, Senior Vice President of Business Development for TZA, says, “We are very pleased to reach this agreement with The Createch Group. Createch has been delivering successful supply chain solutions to the Canadian market since 1993. The combination of TZA’s 25+ years of experience together with Createch’s reputation and capabilities will be a huge asset to those clients looking to dramatically improve their supply chain productivity and reduce costs.”

“The alliance with TZA will allow Createch to offer proven and highly accessible labor management and workforce productivity solutions, a definite added-value to our portfolio of performance improvement services” said Thierry Crete, Vice President - Operational Peformance Improvement at The Createch Group. “We are looking forward to providing our clients with scalable solutions to support the implementation of engineered labor standards that will contribute to increase their operational efficiency.”

Successfully managing labor expense is often the single biggest opportunity for performance improvement and cost savings. ProTrack accurately calculates work duration, tracks associate time against standards, and provides proactive management tools resulting in real time visibility and enhanced management decision making. ProTrack enables clients to realize labor savings of 10% to 25%, improve utilization and reduce costs.
