(CINCINNATI: Aug. 15, 2016)—As businesses seek to meet consumer demands for fast, convenient omnichannel commerce, new demands on store labor threaten profit margins. In the latest installment of its On The Move educational webinar, Intelligrated® (www.intelligrated.com
), covers how to maximize workforce efficiency by adapting warehouse processes to stores. The new episode, “Driving labor cost savings across the store network,” is scheduled for Tuesday, Aug. 23 at 2 p.m. EDT.
Presented by Jason Franklin, product manager, labor and business intelligence, Intelligrated Software, the webinar discusses the challenges of cross-channel orders, how to meet consumer expectations and ways to maximize workforce effectiveness by implementing DC-like processes in stores. Attendees will learn how to drive labor cost savings by using forecasting and monitoring tools to establish labor predictability and meet service level agreements consistently and efficiently.
“Consumer expectations for two-day fulfillment and cross-channel shopping put new demands for speed and complexity on store labor that can cut into profit margins,” says Jerry Koch, director, corporate marketing and product management, Intelligrated. “By deploying the right labor management tools and more agile order-building processes, retailers can handle the in-store pickup and shipping demands of omnichannel commerce while maintaining control of labor effectiveness and costs.”
