Kronos Helps Retailers Manage in the Moment with Workforce Tablet Analytics
NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--
Incorporated today announced the availability of Workforce
Tablet™ Analytics, which transforms labor and sales data into
meaningful business intelligence. It provides retailers with a single
view into labor, sales, and traffic data from anywhere, at anytime. This
application, along with other Kronos
next generation solutions, ushers in a new era of innovation in
retail workforce management whereby organizations are empowered to
manage in the moment through effective staffing.
When it comes to delivering a retail experience that builds brand
loyalty and maximizes operating margins, retailers today need to
manage labor costs to provide customers with the best possible
shopping experience. Addressing this challenge, Workforce Tablet
Analytics provides managers with the metrics, alerts, and guidance
needed to proactively align labor to demand.
The native-built tablet solution developed specifically for the Apple (News - Alert)®
iPad® provides on-demand visibility into retail operations
through configurable dashboards. These dashboards highlight key
performance indicators and deliver easy-to-interpret reports that
enable managers to drill down through all levels of the organization,
such as stores within districts or departments within stores.
Designed around the needs of field managers, Workforce Tablet
Analytics enables more efficient collaboration and effective
communication with stores regarding potential workforce issues.
Workforce Tablet Analytics provides actionable intelligence, such as
recommended labor adjustments to help keep labor hours and cost in
line with budget or forecast labor data. This provides the insight
needed to make mid-week course corrections as a way to maintain
productivity, quality, and service levels.
Full integration of the Kronos (News - Alert) analytics tool with the entire Kronos
for Retail workforce management suite ensures data consistency across
the organization from a multitude of sources including forecasting,
scheduling, time and attendance, POS, traffic counters, warehouse
management systems, and more. This helps retailers realize value from
Big Data as they gain information and insights across silos and be
more effective in driving continuous improvement efforts.
Workforce Tablet Analytics provides retailers with access to
actionable information which fuels innovative ideas with the goal of
increasing sales, driving brand loyalty, and maintaining a competitive
Workforce Tablet Analytics is available in both the Kronos Cloud and

"Workforce Tablet is a powerful
application as it can help managers make changes on the fly from the
floor. The more time managers can spend on the floor as opposed to the
back office is valuable for any retailer. Also, while the solution can
handle a great deal of complexity, the iPad helps to make it an easy
and familiar experience."
Liz Moughan, director, retail and hospitality practice group, Kronos
mobility is important across all functions in the retail industry, in
no other role is it more vital than for field management. Constantly
on the road visiting stores and having to sift through immense amounts
of data, field management is often bogged down in the minutia. But
providing them with easy access to actionable information whenever and
wherever they need, you unburden them so they are able to focus on
what matters most - ensuring that each and every store is being
managed in a way that drives customer satisfaction."
Kronos made this announcement from the National Retail Federation's
(NRF) 102nd Annual Convention & Expo being in held in New
York from Jan. 13-16. Kronos is exhibiting in booth #1825.
