Purchase Enhances RedPrairie's Position in Store Management

StorePerform Technologies Inc. has become part of RedPrairie's Retail Productivity Solutions division. With this acquisition, RedPrairie says it can meet expanding market demand for highly integrated workforce management solutions, integrating store execution management solutions with optimized labor scheduling, time and attendance, learning management, and employee self-service solutions.

"We have led the industry by delivering optimized scheduling based on projected customer traffic and related sales," says Kim Eaton, president of Retail Productivity Solutions. "This workload typically represents two-thirds of the store's required labor. However, store execution management also plays a vital role in optimizing the workforce and, therefore, the retail environment. StorePerform allows retailers to schedule and track the remaining third: task-driven labor requirements, such as inventory resets, new displays, product recalls, etc. These task-driven requirements have dramatically increased in recent years with the advent of advanced price optimization and merchandising solutions that create added workload for the store operation."
