Wisconsin-based multi-specialty retailer Trig's strategic investment in labor planning and optimization yields increased labor savings
DALLAS, July 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Logile, Inc., leading store planning, execution and workforce management solution provider, today announced that Trig's, a premier multi-specialty retailer in northern and central Wisconsin, completed its multi-banner implementation of Logile forecasting, staffing, scheduling, time and attendance, and reporting software. Trig's implemented Logile solutions across its entire Trig's grocery and gas station chains, its Tula's Cafes, Signature Salon and Ace Hardware retail locations, and its supporting operations including Trig's Smokehouse and ice production plants, distribution center and corporate offices. This implementation represents a prioritization of labor planning and optimization in support of Trig's ongoing commitment to serve customers and manage labor as a strategic resource.
Logile actively collaborated with Trig's to implement best-in-class enterprise and scheduling solutions. Mike Carter, vice president of business development at Logile reflected, "The Logile team took an innovative approach to developing standards for Trig's that eliminated the need for significant consulting, to develop store-specific standards that could put a world-class solution at their fingertips. We are committed to getting benefits flowing efficiently and fast."
"Logile really supported us through the standardization process required to implement a chain-wide system," said Brad Brayshaw, senior director of store operations for Trig's. "Trig's now has processes in place across all our business units that really represent our unique way of doing business. We are very pleased with the results and are well-positioned for additional gains going forward."
Brayshaw further reflected, "Logile guided us in best practices for how we use labor to best serve our customers. Logile goes far beyond being just a software vendor, and that difference really paid off for us. Even in early stages of deployment, we started recognizing results right away."
"Logile was an incredible partner all through this process. The benefits have surpassed my expectations," said Bob Jaskolski, president and CEO of T.A. Solberg Co. "We saw labor savings, along with improvements in labor productivity very early in the process. We are seeing those benefits grow as stores learn to trust and use this system. We've automated schedules where we think that makes sense and are producing the other schedules faster and better with alignment to our goals. Even with the unprecedented changes to our business caused by the pandemic, we've been able to work more efficiently. Every step we take with Logile reveals more potential."
"We are honored to partner with Trig's; they have really helped us demonstrate that superior WFM solutions are available to the many smaller but fast-growing and entrepreneurial independent chains that comprise the retail landscape," said Rick Schlenker, Logile co-founder and executive vice president of sales and marketing. "We are pleased that our applications can generate improvements across the full spectrum of retail, from seven-store operators to the largest of retail enterprises."
