Multilabel department store chain opts for ATOSS Workforce Management
With eleven department stores positioned in the upper end market segment and more than 5,500 employees, Breuninger is an acknowledged fashion and lifestyle company of worldwide acclaim. At the beginning of the year, the German Retail Federation (HDE) awarded the Düsseldorf branch as "Store of the Year 2014“. Shortly afterwards, the trade journal TextilWirtschaft bestowed this year's Forumpreis on the company, and honored Breuninger as the best German department store.
By implementing the ATOSS Workforce Management solution, the company is gearing its future personnel deployment even better to customer numbers. The generation of duty schedules can be performed automatically based on forecasted customer numbers. In addition to actual demand, workforce scheduling also factors in employees' preferential working hours. The ATOSS Retail Solution will be at work in the areas of sales, goods distribution, cash desks, catering and gastronomy, hairdresser and beauty, as well as the goods logistics for the individual Breuninger department stores and the e-shop. Up until the Christmas business period the implementation is to be concluded at two pilot stores. The complete roll out of the ATOSS Retail Solution kicks off as from January 2015.
"We want to enthuse and inspire our customers - at every one of our stores and on their every visit. Motivated and committed employees are a decisive success factor in this context. Thanks to flexible, frequency-oriented workforce scheduling we succeed in reconciling greater employee satisfaction and higher service quality without the costs exploding," as Joachim Husl, area manager Human Resources at Breuninger explained.
With the project at Breuninger, ATOSS is further expanding its presence in the fashion and lifestyle area. Renowned companies such as AppelrathCüpper, BASLER, Engelhorn, Kastner & Öhler, Peter Hahn, PUMA, s.Oliver, TOMMY HILFIGER and Wolford are managing the working hours of their employees with Workforce Management solutions by ATOSS.
