Brookshire Grocery Co. has installed Logile’s retail labor planning and workforce management solutions at its 209 retail locations across five banners in Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana and Oklahoma, as well as its corporate offices.
Distribution centers and warehouses are in the process of being implemented. Store execution management will be the final phase.
Facing end-of-life concerns on its legacy WFM solution and a desire to improve flexibility, employee experience and operational effectiveness, Brookshire turned to Logile. The company’s solutions span labor standards and modeling, forecasting, staff planning, budgeting, employee scheduling, mobile worker self-service, time and attendance and store and task execution management.
Logile worked with Brookshire to create labor standards and rolled out an earned hours program, which determines the labor hours needed for store operations based on the volume and mix of items sold, as well as specific store attributes.
Wall-to-wall automated scheduling for the front-end department has been put in place and the remaining departments will roll out over the next few months.
“Logile’s retail expertise, innovation, system flexibility and ease of use were differentiators during the selection process,” said Shawn Sedate, EVP and chief information officer at the Tyler, Texas-based company.
“We were confident that Logile’s solution could support the accurate earned hours model we required, which it delivers via accurate forecasting, staffing and scheduling based on their labor model. We wanted a supportive partner for the long haul to evolve our store technology to help reach our near and long-term strategic growth objectives.
“The Logile platform will position us to deliver on our partner experience, operational and customer goals while gaining visibility and a data-driven understanding into what it takes to efficiently run operations in each department.”
