US-based supermarket chain Vallarta Supermarkets has finished installing Logile’s complete workforce management (WFM) solution portfolio across its stores.

The company has implemented the Logile Employee Scheduling, Time & Attendance and Benefit Accrual solutions across its 34 stores, two distribution centres and two corporate offices.

Vallarta chief information officer and vice-president Steve Netherton said: “We wanted to consolidate all workforce management to a single vendor, and Logile was our definitive choice.

“Our outstanding results with Logile’s forecasting and labour management solutions and positive experience of Logile as a partner have been extremely valuable in helping us realise our optimisation and growth goals.

“Additionally, Logile’s long-standing commitment to innovation and unique business requirements reinforced our selection decision.”

The move comes after Vallarta implemented Logile’s Forecasting, Enterprise Labor Standards, Enterprise Labor Model, Staffing and Task Management software in 2018.

Following the latest implementation, the company now uses Logile solutions across all its workforce management functions.

Logile founder and CEO Purna Mishra said: “Vallarta is an operational powerhouse and we could not be more honoured to extend our relationship.

“We welcome the opportunity to deliver even more value to this retail leader with our industry-best employee scheduling solution, employee self-service and time and attendance—especially in today’s environment, where improving and preserving the associate experience rivals profitability as more important than ever.

“We are eager for Vallarta to realise the incremental benefits of using our comprehensive WFM system; the whole truly is greater than the sum of its parts.”

Over the coming months, Vallarta plans to deploy Logile’s Employee Self-Service, which allows associates to swap shifts, view each other’s schedules and change their own availability from their mobile devices.

This is intended to allow the company to schedule its associates according to forecasted demand without reducing their availability.

Logile’s technology has been used at thousands of retail locations across North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and Oceania to date.
