Beauty across all sales channels
From a specialist retail shop to one of the largest privately managed online perfumeries in Europe – that’s the Parfümerie Akzente success story in a nutshell. Today’s company has over 25 outlets, three hair dressing salons and an internationally successful online shop for perfume, care products and cosmetics. parfumdreams.de now carries more than 500 brands and serves customers from all over Europe. Around 400 employees ensure excellent service at the shops, as well as in administration and the central warehouse at the head office in Pfedelbach-Windischenbach in Baden-Württemberg. After all, this excellence is at the core of the family company’s philosophy. Growth necessitates efficient workforce processes and future-proof time & attendance management. Parfümerie Akzente opted for ATOSS Time Control.
The solution revealed its strengths in the very first rollout phase in administration and logistics. Phase two constituted its introduction in the company's retail network and was managed autonomously by the IT and Human Resources departments. All the employees now perform the processes of time recording, vacation requests and time corrections in paperless form and can view their working time accounts at any time. The digitally recorded working times are automatically evaluated and transmitted to the DATEV payroll system by way of an interface. Manual input, stacks of forms and mathematical errors are now a thing of the past. The perfumery benefits from greater transparency in all aspects of working time and personnel costs. It has also become significantly easier to monitor labor and employment law regulations. The next step involves introducing ATOSS Workforce Scheduling to the retail outlets and the logistics operations, helping the company to focus even more strongly on customers in the future. In this way, Parfümerie Akzente is future-proofing itself to hold its own in an intensely competitive market.
