RedPrairie Corporation, a productivity solutions provider, has announced that HEMA, a leading European retailer with stores in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany and France, has selected RedPrairie’s hosted retail solutions for Execution Management, Time & Attendance and Workforce Management. HEMA, which employs approximately 10,000 people, will implement Time & Attendance and Workforce Management in its self-owned stores in Belgium and the Netherlands, while Execution Management will be used in all stores, including franchises. HEMA will also implement these solutions in their distribution centre.
"After an extensive selection process, RedPrairie was selected for its rich functionality in supporting all of our requirements, its advanced forecasting capabilities, the fact that it can be hosted and its user-friendliness," said Friedeke Voss, Manager IT at HEMA. "RedPrairie’s ability to handle complex labour standards also played an important role in our decision and we are confident that they will help us boost the efficiency of our store staff and bottom line results."
Execution Management will enable HEMA to ensure timely and consistent execution of corporately assigned tasks across all locations, thereby improving the results from merchandising programmes. Workforce Management provides a set of tools to forecast and schedule labour resources and track performance. And Time & Attendance allows consistent application of national wage, hour and leave regulations, in accordance with union rules. Without external support, HEMA will be able to configure and update these in minutes, resulting in an accurate real time administration of time, reduced payroll errors and better schedule compliance.
"We are very proud to work with HEMA and to assist in improving their business performance," said Martin Hiscox, Managing Director and President International at RedPrairie. "With our suite of retail store solutions we are able to help retailers deliver a great customer experience in stores of different sizes, ranging from under 10 employees to the largest general retailers and grocers."
