Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 05, 2016
ThinkTime has announced a strategic partnership between its cloud-based Retail Task Management solution and Workplace, the world’s leading provider of optimized, employee friendly, workforce scheduling tools. The partnership will bring each company’s best-of-breed products to new potential customers.
“There’s a natural synergy between our products,” says ThinkTime President Steve Levy. “Workplace has been a leader in workforce optimization for nearly 30 years. Our customers are looking for advice on issues like how fair scheduling can increase productivity right now and it’s great for us to have such a credible partner."
David Farquhar, Group CEO at Workplace agrees. “We both play in the same ecosystem and our products are highly complementary. Task Management is something that many prospective customers ask us for and ThinkTime gives us a great way to address those needs.”
In announcing the partnership, both Levy and Farquhar acknowledged a shift in the marketplace away from bulky, one-size-fits-all solutions. The SaaS delivery model from both ThinkTime and Workplace makes such flexibility possible. “Customers these days aren’t looking to one provider to give them everything,” says Farquhar. “They’d rather select the best-of-breed and have them talk to each other.”
“At the end of the day, you can really only do a few things well,” says Levy. “We know Workplace is as focused on employee/employer balanced scheduling as we are on Task and Help Ticketing.”
