American Apparel now live on Infor WFM Workbrain
Jan '11
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving over 70,000 customers, announced American Apparel, Inc. has selected and implemented the company's WFM Workbrain solution to manage the company's global workforce.

American Apparel needed a flexible and scalable tool that could be deployed across its global operations, allowing the company to better manage its global workforce with integrated time and attendance and store labor scheduling.

By leveraging its existing timeclock hardware, American Apparel was able to implement the Infor Workbrain Time and Attendance solution in just 15 weeks.

Workbrain's Labor Forecasting and Scheduling Optimization is helping American Apparel find the "best fit" schedule that ensures that the right employees, with the right skills, are scheduled at the right time to meet customer demand.

"Our ability to implement Global Time and Attendance in just 15 weeks is truly a testament to the flexibility and extendibility of the Workbrain application," said Stacey Shulman, vice president, Technology, American Apparel. "Infor Workbrain's mathematical rather than heuristic approach to solving our scheduling challenges was a key factor in our decision to move forward."

"We are thrilled to partner with American Apparel in its quest to better manage its global workforce," said John Russo, senior director, product management, Infor. "We look forward to continued success."
