Toronto, ON (PRWEB) August 4, 2007
Axsium Group, Inc., the premier Workforce Management consulting firm, today announced that La Senza Corporation, a leading Canadian and international intimate apparel specialty retailer, has gone live with Infor HCM Workforce Management at over 50 retail locations. Axsium Group was selected by La Senza Corporation to lead the implementation, successfully achieving the go-live milestone on time and on budget. Infor HCM Workforce Management, previously known as Workbrain, is now enabling La Senza to optimize employee scheduling to drive down labor costs, improve overall operational efficiency and enhance the customer experience.
With over 3,000 employees scheduled manually in more than 340 retail locations across Canada, La Senza realized that it needed to improve and apply consistency in the processes around scheduling and managing its workforce. To help accomplish this goal, La Senza selected the Infor HCM Workforce Management solution to implement labor forecasting and scheduling optimization functionality.
The rapid go-live was achieved using Axsium's Axselerate methodology -- a proprietary suite of field-proven implementation tools and processes designed to streamline the implementation of workforce management solutions and ensure that the end-result of the implementation is closely aligned with corporate goals and expectations.
"Axsium delivered on its promise to implement the Workbrain for Retail solution in under six months, exceeding our expectations. Our executive team cannot believe how quickly we implemented the system, meeting our stores' operational requirements, without costly implementation over runs," said Anne Pitts, EVP Store Operations, La Senza Corporation. "Based on the enterprise configuration completed up-front by Axsium, our internal project team is able to continue the rollout to our remaining retail locations in rapid succession".
"There is increased focus in the retail industry today on the substantial benefits that Enterprise Workforce Management can have on improving execution and delivering on customer-centric strategies. Large retailers such as La Senza can not only reduce and control their labor spend, but they can also increase sales through better schedule coverage and a generally enhanced customer experience," said Tim Lett, Managing Partner, Axsium Group. "This successful implementation highlights Axsium Group's effective approach to implementing Workforce Management solutions and expertise in the retail industry."
