Praxis introduces RedPrairie Workforce Management


Leading Dutch do-it-yourself retailer implements solution at over 100 stores

RedPrairie Corporation, a productivity solutions provider, today announced that Praxis, a leading Dutch do-it-yourself retailer, has implemented RedPrairie Workforce Management in over 100 stores. As a result, Praxis has improved its demand forecasting.

Praxis selected RedPrairie in 2009 and the first site went live after six weeks. Frits Voorhout, COO of Praxis, said, "The solution is user-friendly, stable and effective. We are able to schedule the right person at the right location at the right time.”

The solution starts with RedPrairie’s proprietary forecasting engine producing a demand forecast for each store down to 15-minute intervals. The scheduling solution then matches available labour against the forecast, taking account of factors such as employee skills, indirect tasks and legal requirements, thereby producing the optimal workforce plan.

“Every week 1,2 million employees are planned with RedPrairie Workforce Management ranging from speciality stores with under 10 employees to large general retailers and supermarkets,” said Martin Hiscox, Vice Chairman of the Board, Managing Director and President International, RedPrairie. “We are delighted to be working with such a well respected company as Praxis."
