Staples, the world's largest office products company has selected the Workforce Management solution from RedPrairie Corporation to provide support for labour across Staples' US retail supply chain operations.

 

Nearly 1,500 associates will use the solution in four distribution centres located in California.

 

"Our organisation wanted a workforce solution that could provide visibility beyond the walls of a distribution centre," said Bill Ross, Staples vice president of retail distribution.

 

"We viewed RedPrairie as a best-of-breed selection among other vendors. In particular, our company liked RedPrairie's real-time productivity reporting, and their ability to forecast labour requirements across an entire supply network."

 

Staples also plans to make use of the system's Quality Management component, allowing administrators to observe and coach associates along the route to maximised efficiency.
