Task Manager was chosen over its competition after a comprehensive review by Coop’s CEO August Harder. “We selected Reflexis Task Manager because from Coop’s perspective the software offers the closest match to the requirements of the communication process to stores. The Reflexis Task Manager software can be adapted and integrated very easily to the company processes and provides Coop with the opportunity for quick, easy, and consistent communication to stores. The stores operate very efficiently through the uniform structured information and save time in processing tasks created by Head Office and Regions.”
“We are delighted that Coop Switzerland is joining some of the world’s best known retailers that have increased sales, reduced costs, and gained efficiencies by implementing the Reflexis task management solution,” said OP Choudhary, Head of Operations for Reflexis EMEA. “Coop have optimised Task Manager by integrating it with SAP so that both communications and even actions within communications are sent only to the relevant stores based on the key data in SAP in real time. This enables the removal of any unnecessary information for stores to read and optimises time on the salesfloor to spend with their customers. Coop Switzerland have been strategic in their use of Task Manager, integrating it with existing systems to maximise efficiency. Additionally Coop communicate to stores in three languages necessitating a streamlined process for ensuring translations are incorporated in the workflow process.”
