Montreal company is revolutionizing work measurement studies
Montreal, QC November 14, 2005
A Quebec organization, Laubrass Inc. announces this week that they
have reached the 1,300 licenses sold mark. Their innovative software,
UmtPlus® is revolutionizing the way that work measurement is done
says one client. The software is being used all across North America,
in Europe, South America and most recently the 1,300th license went to Israel Electric.
We have grown to be a world renowned company says Founder and
President, Charles Brassard. Work measurement, an integral part of
industrial engineering, is the study of the time that a given task
would take when performed by a qualified worker. By studying the way in
which time is spent in the workplace, organizations can optimize their
processes to increase their productivity.
The UmtPlusTM software runs on
handheld computers and replaces the need for stopwatches and
clipboards. Bill Tolo of Marshall Fields Retail was one of the first
users of UmtPlusTM, its the stopwatch of the 21ST century, he says.
Founded in 1993, Laubrass facilitates and optimizes the process of
conducting quality audits and work measurement studies by leveraging
handheld computing tools. Their software programs are being used in a
variety of industries internationally.
