Schnuck Markets Launches Logile’s Workforce Management Solution Chain-Wide; Tom Henry, Scott Russo, Kim Anderson, and Purna Mishra Discuss
DALLAS, TX - A company is only as strong as its workforce, and Schnuck Markets is looking to cement its strong position in the retail market. Bolstering its labor strategy, the grocer has announced a new partnership with Logile to implement its Workforce Management solution suite company-wide.
“Logile was an excellent partner in helping us to integrate their workforce management solution with our human resource and other business systems,” said Schnucks Chief Data Officer and Deputy Chief Information Officer Tom Henry. “When challenges arose, as they usually do during large-scale enterprise implementations, Logile supported our team, even when the issue did not relate directly to the Logile service. Their sole focus was to ensure a successful implementation and to support us so that we could achieve the benefits we committed to our stakeholders. They have done all of this while meeting our exacting standards for reliability, data security and business continuity.”
Currently, St. Louis-based Schnucks operates 111 stores across Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin, according to a press release. With such a large number of locations throughout several states, the need for a successful workforce management system is vital.
“Logile’s technology and ability to address today’s retail challenges has been impressive,” shared Scott Russo, Schnucks Director of Workforce Management. “Even through these most unpredictable of times, including all the impacts of the pandemic, their artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning forecasting algorithms adapted to produce accurate sales and item level forecasts across all our stores and departments. Their forecasting accuracy enables us to more accurately schedule our teammates to meet our customers’ needs. Their flexibility and commitment to our partnership were also vitally important to our success. During our rollout, Logile responded to our requested enhancements to scheduling and dashboard reporting in order to help customize the technology for our company’s use.”
The Logile modules implemented by Schucks include enterprise labor modeling, engineered labor standards, staffing, employee scheduling, forecasting, time and attendance, and dashboard reporting. Overall, all of these modules help leaders in each store map out daily labor needs while keeping important data and information organized and ready to use.
“Logile’s complete workforce management solution supports our store managers by handling the complexity of labor planning and scheduling," said Kim Anderson, Vice President of Store Operations for Schnucks.
Following the effective introduction of Logile’s Workforce Management solution, Schnucks has selected the company to provide its Store Execution—or Task Management—solution. The rollout is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2022.
“We are very appreciative of having the opportunity to partner with and provide our solutions and services to a retailer of Schnucks’ quality and leadership. Enabling their very high standards and retail thought leadership also gave Logile a chance to learn and improve. The experience with Schnucks has made us better and I am grateful for the confidence and trust they had in our team,” said Purna Mishra, Logile Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “We remain committed to bringing the retail industry ground-breaking technology that addresses total store planning, scheduling and execution management based on one unified forecast.”
