Luc Van Wambeke, East Coast Regional Controller of The Sports Club Company, states: "Labor Intelligence will undoubtedly create awareness among our property management teams, enhance our ability to quickly spot trends in labor expenses and respond to them in a timely manner. Labor is such a significant component of our operating expenses and understanding how every dollar is spent is critical to the success of our operations. Historically, we have managed these expenses through the use of spreadsheets. However, in the current economic climate it is even more important that our operations have the most up to date information available as fast as possible so our managers can be more capable of adjusting expenses quickly. Complicated spreadsheets are too time consuming and difficult to manage during the forecast and budget process, and having this information in a database that is accessible for any particular period at any time is so much more flexible and efficient when projecting labor expenses."
