The partnership combined the real-time visibility and predictive ETAs of FourKites with Zebra’s Reflexis AI-powered Work Platform.
This integration enables real-time mobile updates from FourKites’ multimodal Dynamic ETAs® and live tracking details to optimize workforce management and task execution, to quickly update labour schedules and assign related tasks based on shipment arrival times.
The combined power of Reflexis and FourKites brings agility and predictability to retail supply chains. The solution helps retailers lower labour costs by avoiding overtime pay and penalties for last-minute shift cancellations and creates an elevated customer experience. Moreover, retailers can maximize inventory availability by ensuring that labour is available to unload trucks and stock shelves as soon as an incoming shipment arrives.
“With the ongoing labor crisis, it’s never been more important for retailers to maximize efficiency and agility within their workforce,” said Mathew Elenjickal, founder and CEO, FourKites. “Time spent waiting for a truck to arrive means time spent away from customers on the sales floor. We’re delighted to collaborate with Zebra to empower retailers with real-time transit insights.”
