Loblaw to Leverage RedPrairie Workforce Management Across Canada

Loblaw Cos., Ltd. has purchased RedPrairie Corp.'s Workforce Management (WFM) application for its stores throughout Canada. The Milwaukee-based consumer-driven optimization company's system will manage over 120,000 employees.

"RedPrairie has experience in the grocery industry," said Loblaw s.v.p., information technology Catherine Booth. "We needed a proven solution to meet our requirements, while providing an easier tool for our managers and colleagues."

The WFM solution provides increased productivity and visibility into work force operations, directing time and attendance, business forecasting, work force demand planning, automated optimized scheduling, staff self-service, dashboards with configurable alerts, and computer-based training.

"RedPrairie has long recognized the complexities associated with reconciling payroll compliance and efficient workforce management," noted RedPrairie c.e.o. Mike Mayoras.

Brampton, Ont.-based Loblaw, Canada's largest food distributor, is a leading provider of general merchandise products, drug store and financial products and services. The company has over 140,000 full-time and part-time employees in more than 1,000 corporate and franchised stores from coast to coast. Loblaw is a subsidiary of George Weston, Ltd.
