Covalent Unveils Intelligent Work Allocation (IWA) to Change How Work Gets Assigned on the Floor

BOSTON, May 2, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Covalent, a leader in workforce operations software for the manufacturing sector, announced the official launch of its latest solution, Intelligent Work Allocation (IWA). Built upon extensive industry research, IWA leverages machine learning to optimize how frontline leaders conduct workforce assignment processes.

Addressing Critical Industry Challenges

In today's fast-paced manufacturing environment, frontline leaders face a myriad of challenges when it comes to aligning workforce resources with production demands in real-time. Worker absenteeism and fluctuating product demand make assigning jobs during a shift even more complex. In many cases, using only tacit knowledge to decide "who should work where" leads to significant productivity loss and increased labor costs.

Introducing Intelligent Work Allocation

IWA represents a paradigm shift in workforce optimization, leveraging Covalent's unique dataset on worker capabilities and proprietary machine-learning models. This groundbreaking solution empowers frontline leaders to make data-drien task assignment decisions with confidence, while reducing the administrative burden of job performance tracking.

Proven Impact and Market Readiness

After trials in 2023 with select customers, IWA has already demonstrated impressive results. Clients have reported up to a 12% increase in efficiency and a 35% reduction in time spent on shift management. With these promising outcomes, IWA is positioned to upgrade a critical business process for the industry.
