Department stores are complicated places for retail management. Even when the economy is great, managing a department store can be like walking a trapeze. In a recession, there’s constant need to improve department store operational efficiency.
Labor management is vital right now! You need to build staff schedules that amplify great customer service and productivity, yet cut overtime and under-staffing. It’s like walking a tight rope.
Over-staff and you lose money.
Under-staff and you lose customers.
To keep labor costs on target and prevent buddy punching or riding the time clock, you need to monitor attendance.
TimeForge can assist in increasing productivity, avoiding unnecessary overtime and missed shifts (while considering availability, accrued PTO, time off requests, training, and seniority of your employees), and coordinating these considerations with the busier and slower times in your store (or any particular department). Best of all, you can monitor employee attendance even if you are off-site from any computer or smart phone!
With TimeForge, you’ll do it all in minutes (not hours), and you can increase store profits by 3-5%!
