PLANNING POWER IN THE CLOUD
Shell Retail Netherlands stations are truly a place to refuel. At the sites, customers don't just fill up their cars, but also buy hot and cold beverages, refreshments, snacks and even groceries. Clients appreciate the good service, excellent product freshness and of course the generous opening hours which are well beyond those of conventional supermarkets. So it is not without reason that the Shell brand enjoys a worldwide reputation not just amongst motorists. With some 93.000 employees, the company operates in 70 countries and ranks as one of the leading players in the oil and gas industry. Shell Retail Netherlands runs 230 retail sites with more than 3.000 vendors. Since 2017, the 24/7 staff deployment is being managed with the ATOSS Retail Solution.
Automatic Duty Scheduling factors in drivers such as customer frequency levels, receipt sizes and sales revenue as well as qualifications and individual staff requirements, allowing forecasting the required workforce down to 30 minutes units precisely. Expensive over- and understaffing belongs to the past. The employees are deployed precisely as needed.
