Market-leading retailers increasingly recognize how an intelligently designed and implemented WFM solution can have a dramatic and long-lasting impact on their competitive advantage and bottom line results. Those same retailers understand that automated labor budgeting, scheduling, forecasting and time and attendance is no longer just a luxury, but an essential part of their ongoing business model. Of all industries, retailers stand to make the biggest gains through WFM. With such a large portion of annual operating expenditures devoted to labor costs, even small improvements in time and attendance, leave management and task management systems can produce substantive labor cost savings while simultaneously enhancing the store experience. Scheduling and task management solutions on the other hand, can enhance the consistency and effectiveness of execution at the store-level, ensuring each store reflects the brand and experience envisioned by head office. The result is real benefits to the bottom line.
