Logile, Inc., an innovator in enterprise workforce planning and mobile execution management solutions announced today that it has completed the implementation of its Enterprise Labor Model™, Sales and Labor Planning™, Real-Time Plan Optimization™, and Enterprise Performance Reporting™ modules to model, plan and manage the labor budget at Delhaize America’s Salisbury-based banners, including Bottom Dollar Food, Food Lion, Harveys and Reid’s.
The Enterprise Labor Model™ and Sales and Labor Planning™ modules integrate historical volumes, effective dated engineered labor standards, and store specific characteristics to provide a true, bottoms-up labor budgeting approach. Through the solution implementation, each banner is able to obtain more detailed and time-specific data for labor modeling and budgeting for each store and sub-department while integrating the system with existing financial and workforce managements systems.
Logile’s Real-Time Plan Optimization™ (now Real-time Re-Forecasting™) solution provides each banner with store-specific information regarding next-day workloads to equip managers to make well-informed decisions on future staffing as well as employee work assignments. The solution was implemented at the Food Lion banner earlier this year, with implementation to other banners scheduled through 2012.
“It was a pleasure working with the project teams at each of the Delhaize banners as their teams quickly learned, deployed and used the software to plan and manage labor at more than 1,200 stores,” said Rob York, Logile’s Director of Professional Services and Customer Engagement. “This was a major undertaking and accomplishment considering the number of stores and unique attributes of each banner.”
