Eddie Bauer: Workforce Management the Japanese way

Eddie Bauer Japan Inc. relies on the ATOSS Retail Solution

Eddie Bauer Japan Inc. is planning and steering the deployment and management of around 700 employees at its Japanese stores with the help of the ATOSS Retail Solution. The Workforce Management software was introduced to the 57 stores shops of the traditional US brand within a period of only five months.

Following a detailed requirements analysis, the management of Eddie Bauer Japan opted for the ATOSS Retail Solution. A reference visit to SportScheck GmbH in Munich was a particularly convincing experience. The sporting goods retailer that also belongs to the Otto Gruppe has already been successfully using the sector solution in all of its stores. Additional criteria were the availability in multiple language versions, the outstanding flexibility of the software, as well as the capability to readily factor in Japanese legislation and collectively bargained pay scales. In order to ensure that the software would deliver the desired benefits on the Asian markets, a detailed process analysis was conducted at Eddie Bauer in Tokyo in the run-up to the project kick-off.
