For Immediate Release: January 10, 2008
Milwaukee, WI -- RedPrairie Corporation, a leading consumer driven optimization company, announced today that The Finish Line, Inc. will implement RedPrairie's Workforce Management application, with future plans to implement RedPrairie's Execution Management application. The Finish Line looks to improve customer and associate satisfaction while increasing the efficiency and accuracy of its labor schedules and labor cost tracking.
"We selected RedPrairie because it is proven in our industry, and it provides the most highly integrated, end-to-end solution for managing the operations of our stores," said Finish LineSr. Vice President of Information Systems, Roger Underwood. "RedPrairie has extensive capabilities in workforce management, due to their ability to integrate their execution management application. Once we are fully implemented with both applications, we will be better able to forecast our labor and project execution needs to achieve highly accurate labor coverage to match the need in our stores."
RedPrairie's time and attendance solution allows retailers to closely monitor labor hours and costs as they are incurred. Key capabilities of the application include time clock integration with posted schedules, enabling automatic employee punch validation; actionable alerts to notify managers of potential issues, such as employees approaching overtime; and automated payroll closing.
According to Kim Eaton, RedPrairie's Executive Vice President, Field Operations, Americas, "Our solutions run in over 30,000 retail locations, scheduling and prioritizing the work of over one million employees each week."
Eaton continued, "With visibility and responsiveness to real-time consumer demand, RedPrairie is the only solution provider that delivers a fully integrated workforce management suite that optimizes all task and traffic-driven labor needs. Ultimately, retailers are able to improve their business by capitalizing on revenue opportunities and aligning labor dollars to the right priorities."
