Big Y Controls Labor Costs with Workforce Solution
Regional independent Big Y Foods, Inc. has completed its chain-wide implementation of Logile’s hosted Enterprise Labor Model, Sales and Labor Planning, and Performance Management and Reporting solutions.
“Logile’s workforce planning solution has unique features that help us better plan our labor scheduling and as a result has helped us to control our labor costs,” said Jim Killian, Big Y’s director of workforce management.
According to Rick Schlenker, Logile’s co-founder and SVP of operations, the system will help Big Y meet its demanding workforce planning requirements. “Their need to plan labor by using volume movement at the UPC level has improved our solution and enables us to meet an even wider range of customers’ labor planning requirements,” he said. “We can now support sales and labor planning at a macro level, micro level down to the UPC, and at all levels of detail in-between.”
Springfield, Mass.-based Big Y operates 61 locations throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts with over 10,000 employees.
