Red Prairie Corporation, a productivity solutions provider, announced recently its Workforce Management solution has gone live at eight Advance Auto Parts distribution centers.
A leading automotive retailer in the United States, Advance Auto is also in the process of implementing RedPrairie's Transportation Management and Collaboration Portal solutions.
"Our company wanted a solution that could incorporate integrated time and incentive programs in a rapid and direct fashion," says Chas Scheiderer, Advance Auto's Senior Vice President of Supply Chain. "RedPrairie's Workforce Management has capabilities for both, and what we consider a simple and straightforward installation procedure. As a whole, we think it was the right choice for our business."
Advance Auto is using Workforce Management to help provide real-time visibility into labor metrics enterprise-wide. Through a process of strategic project management, technological integration, and managed change, the company hopes to have the ability to deploy the right number of workers, with the right skills, at the right time to meet business objectives and customer demand. "Companies like Advance Auto define progress in supply chain management," says RedPrairie CEO Mike Mayoras, "We congratulate the company on a successful go-live."
