Time and Labor Management Solutions for Retailers

Retail is all about supply and demand. That applies to more than stock…it applies to your workforce, too. You need to ensure that when customers are in the house, employees are there to serve them.

EPAY BlueforceTM system can help you maximize employee scheduling and make real-time changes as needed. It offers solutions to two chronic industry challenges: overtime costs and buddy punching, as known as time theft. In addition, it will help you:

Cut Costs – These days, people are careful about where they’ll spend their disposable income, which means business is more competitive than ever. With Blueforce, you can expect to reduce labor costs by 5% or more, so you can keep prices down and service up, while still boosting your profits.

Stay in Compliance – Our system factors in labor laws and union rules and flags potential conflicts, so you can nip compliance issues in the bud.

Stay in Control – Blueforce does more than manage time and attendance. Its valuable workforce management tools–like labor budgeting and scheduling software–can help run your business more efficiently.
