Midwestern convenience retailer and manufacturer of ice cream products selects advanced labor solution to automate scheduling and increase associate engagement
DEDHAM, Mass., October 1, 2019: Reflexis Systems, Inc., industry leader in real-time store operations and workforce management solutions, announced today that United Dairy Farmers, Inc., (UDF) has selected Reflexis Workforce Scheduler™ to simplify associate scheduling and forecasting for their convenience stores and other lines of business. By combining Workforce Scheduler™ with Employee Self-Service and Advanced Analytics & Reporting, UDF will empower store associates and managers and gain insight into store and labor operations while optimizing labor spend.
UDF, which operates nearly 200 convenience stores, sought a solution to increase scheduling accuracy and improve engagement for store associates and managers. By adding Workforce Scheduler™, UDF can more efficiently forecast workload demand, rapidly generate accurate schedules and create accurate and precise labor budgets.
“We are excited to add Reflexis workforce management solutions and move away from manually creating employee schedules,” said Dan Burke, Vice President of Retail Operations for UDF. “Based on feedback from our associate engagement survey and through talking with our managers and associates, automating the scheduling process in our stores is a key priority. Workforce Scheduler™ will help us increase productivity, increase associate engagement, lower associate turnover, and, in turn, continue to enhance the guest experience across our stores and other lines of business.”
“Reflexis is thrilled to assist UDF in streamlining its labor scheduling,” said Brett Friedman, Chief Revenue Officer at Reflexis. “We’re confident that UDF will realize crucial benefits with our solutions, including more engaged store associates and more accurate communication of schedules.”
UDF will also utilize Reflexis Advanced Analytics & Reporting to discover trends in store execution, store auditing, and labor operations data, with the goal of improving store operations.
