Employee Scheduling

Schedule the right store employees at the right time—to do the right things.

Optimize your most important resource—your people—just by changing the way you schedule. Rising minimum wages, increased regulations and a tight labor market mean effective scheduling is more important than ever. And while producing a great schedule does require a great forecast, the scheduling system you use can mean the difference between just OK and game-changing performance.

Not all scheduling solutions are created equal. To deliver stellar customer service without over- or under-scheduling, you must be able to schedule at the task level and cross-schedule your people. You also need the right scheduling logic and measurement. Extra cutting-edge abilities like gig-style scheduling take you the extra mile if you so choose.

Gain a creative new solution to address labor challenges with Gig-Style Scheduling

Logile Gig-Style Scheduling uniquely adapts the successful ride-share gig and crowdsource model to work in the retail operational environment, helping retailers effectively manage staffing shortages while attracting and retaining workers. Leverage this ground-breaking mobile solution as a new strategic tool to supplement your labor pool to effectively cover staffing needs across your organization.

With Logile’s solution, gig workers are employees of your company approved by you to bid on shifts outside the associates’ primary store and departments. Crowdsource workers are not current company employees but are vetted and preapproved by you to bid on shifts for specific roles, departments and stores if managers open shifts to crowdsource status. Workers love it and your shifts get covered according to your rules and specifications: It’s a win-win! Find out more about Gig-Style Scheduling!
