Jan '10
Bob's Stores, a 34-store footwear and apparel retailer and a long-standing customer of Kronos Incorporated, is upgrading to version 6.1 of the Kronos Workforce Central suite as part of its strategy to drive revenue growth and productivity. 6.1 will help Bob's Stores further balance labor costs and customer loyalty with profitability and employee satisfaction.

News Facts

An existing user of the Kronos time and attendance and employee scheduling solutions, Bob's Stores standardized workforce business processes with Kronos to make informed decisions impacting labor costs.

By automating error-prone processes, Kronos helped Bob's Stores save 15 percent in total labor costs within just six months of implementation. Bob's Stores has continued to reap financial benefits consistently with the system through the years.

The decision to upgrade to the current Kronos version, which includes hundreds of ease of use, integration, and rich functionality features, is driven by Bob's Stores' goal of enhanced labor optimization to impact the bottom line.

With the upgrade, Bob's Stores is poised to significantly improve efficiency of critical workforce business processes. Custom reports around schedule effectiveness will offer managers visibility into the state of scheduling in real time enabling them to make preemptive changes before costly issues arise including over-and-under staffing; overtime; and missed meal and other breaks.

The completely automated and streamlined reporting will free managers to spend more time on running their operations. Employees will benefit from the user-friendly interface and self-service features including the ability to make schedule changes online.
With the current version, Bob's Stores will also leverage the seamless integration between Workforce Central and the engineered labor standards solution StandardsPro for Retail from Accenture (previously H.B. Maynard).
