Schnucks Completes Chain-Wide Rollout of Logile’s Workforce Management Solution, Realizing Improved Productivity
Logile, Inc., leading retail labor planning, workforce management, inventory management and store execution provider, announced that Schnuck Markets, Inc. completed the company-wide implementation of Logile’s Workforce Management solution suite.
“We remain committed to bringing the retail industry ground-breaking technology that addresses total store planning, scheduling and execution management based on one unified forecast.”
Schnucks, a family-owned grocery retailer based in St. Louis, operates 111 stores in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin. “Logile’s complete workforce management solution supports our store managers by handling the complexity of labor planning and scheduling. In addition, Logile’s mobile employee self-service application enables our teammates to use their mobile phone to take charge of their work availability, time off requests, and have visibility to swap shifts with other teammates,” said Kim Anderson, Vice President of Store Operations for Schnucks.
“Logile was an excellent partner in helping us to integrate their workforce management solution with our human resource and other business systems,” said Schnucks Chief Data Officer and Deputy Chief Information Officer Tom Henry. “When challenges arose, as they usually do during large-scale enterprise implementations, Logile supported our team, even when the issue did not relate directly to the Logile service. Their sole focus was to ensure a successful implementation and to support us so that we could achieve the benefits we committed to our stakeholders. They have done all of this while meeting our exacting standards for reliability, data security and business continuity.”
“Logile’s technology and ability to address today’s retail challenges has been impressive,” shared Scott Russo, Schnucks Director of Workforce Management. “Even through these most unpredictable of times, including all the impacts of the pandemic, their artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning forecasting algorithms adapted to produce accurate sales and item level forecasts across all our stores and departments. Their forecasting accuracy enables us to more accurately schedule our teammates to meet our customers’ needs. Their flexibility and commitment to our partnership were also vitally important to our success. During our rollout, Logile responded to our requested enhancements to scheduling and dashboard reporting in order to help customize the technology for our company’s use.”
