InVision Illustrates How to Reduce Costs with Efficient Staff Scheduling at 2011 Forum Retail GDO

InVision Software, one of the leading international providers of cloud-based workforce management (WFM) solutions, will be exhibiting at the 11th Forum Retail & GDO, on November 29th and 30th, 2011, at the Hotel Melià in Milan, Italy. As a Gold Sponsor of this important industry event, InVision will give a presentation explaining the benefits and cost advantages that a professional workforce management solution can provide.

In tough economic times, it is more important than ever for retailers to reduce costs while retaining customers. Demand-oriented scheduling is an effective approach to weathering the economic storm with the help of state-of-the-art workforce management. On Wednesday, in the “Technology Solutions” session at 11:40am, Giulio Schiona, Account Manager at InVision, will address frequently asked questions that every store or department manager has in mind when scheduling staff: How do I create demand-oriented forecasts and schedules that take into account available employees as well as their skills and qualifications? At the same time, how do I reach full compliance to legal as well as contractual constraints and any other agreements? Additionally, Schiona will demonstrate how a professional WFM solution can provide reliable results from monitoring, controlling and target performance analyses, as well as significant data on the performance of several shops or individual departments, hours worked, productivity, profits etc.

InVision’s WFM solution supports the optimised coverage of employee requirements by the automated creation of shift schedules. The solution includes the entire process of workforce management – from forecasting demand, via personnel deployment planning and optimisation, through intraday management. The understandable user interface enables a smooth deployment of the application for the planning processes on the sales floor. Thus, while introducing a new workforce management system, time and costs for the roll out and implementation of the entire project are reduced considerably, employee acceptance is increased and the adaptation phase is minimised.
