RedPrairie Corporation, the world’s leading consumer driven optimisation provider, has released that The Works, the UK's leading retailer of value books, crafts and gifts, has selected RedPrairie’s Workforce Management (WFM) solution to optimise labour management at its Sutton Coldfield distribution centre.
RedPrairie’s Workforce Management solution enables organisations to increase productivity, optimise resources and reduce supply chain costs. RedPrairie’s flexible, web-based reporting tool provides real-time performance monitoring to proactively address potential problems, before they disrupt the operation. With the resource planning and scheduling function, managers are able to confidently staff the warehouse to optimise resource utilisation.
The WFM programme will provide The Works with a tool to improve service levels and operational efficiency as well as employee morale. Cost savings will be realised through the establishment of preferred work methods and accurate expectations for work tasks, taking into account actual travel distances, product characteristics and environmental factors, and a comprehensive training approach that creates a performance focused workforce.
According to The Work, one of its key corporate initiatives is the continued expansion and growth of the business. To ensure success, The Work's supply chain must become even more adaptable and responsive to the needs of itsend customer. As people are the backbone of its supply chain, investment in this area was an easy decision. The RedPrairie solution totally supports the culture of continuous improvement, where all work together to create a more efficient and effective supply chain.
