Shoe, Apparel Chain Implements Labor Management Solution from RedPrairie

The Finish Line Inc., which operates shoe and apparel stores under the Finish Line and Man Alive brand names, plans to implement RedPrairie's Workforce Management application immediately, and the developer's Execution Management application later.

"RedPrairie has extensive capabilities in workforce management, due to their ability to integrate their execution management application," says Roger Underwood, Finish Line senior vice president of information systems. "Once we are fully implemented with both applications, we will be better able to forecast our labor and project execution needs to achieve highly accurate labor coverage to match the need in our stores."

RedPrairie's time and attendance solution allows retailers to closely monitor labor hours and costs as they are incurred. Key capabilities include time clock integration with posted schedules, enabling automatic employee punch validation; actionable alerts to notify managers of potential issues, such as employees approaching overtime; and automated payroll closing.

RedPrairie says the solutions are used in more than 30,000 retail locations, scheduling and prioritizing the work of over one million employees each week.
