Make better decisions, faster with workforce optimization software
Workforce planning is too important — and costly — to leave to guesswork. Match your shift scheduling to actual workload with accurate projections based on granular forecasts.
Accurate workload forecasts
RELEX’s workload projections are driven by our powerful forecasting tool. We can forecast your intraday sales and daily goods flow months in advance — then apply that data to your workforce planning.
We use pragmatic AI to optimize your shifts based on accurate workload forecasts. RELEX takes workload, floating tasks, and employee contracts into consideration to reduce unnecessary costs and improve your service levels.
RELEX takes employee contracts, availability, preferences, and labor agreements into consideration to balance work shifts, eliminating both costly overstaffing and employee stress from understaffing.
The full range of tasks
RELEX can optimize any type of task you need executed in your stores or distribution centers. Our system can flexibly model the full range of tasks, whether it’s fixed, forecast-based, floating, or a hybrid.
Highly automated shift planning
Optimize your shifts with the click of a button and easily manage activities in one simple view on our web-based solution. Store employees benefit too — RELEX publishes shift schedules directly to their mobile devices.
Reporting time and attendance
Our workforce optimization software makes it quick and easy to log all of your employee time and attendance data. It also provides real-time visibility, giving planners the flexibility to make informed adjustments on the spot.
Long-term resource planning
Identify your risk of costly overstaffing or burdensome understaffing well in advance. RELEX compares your business’s long-term workload forecasts against staff availability to help you plan accurately for the long haul.
We give your team a full audit trail from forecast to workload — and on to the planned shifts. Get a continuous view of how planned shifts will impact mission-critical KPIs — your workforce data is at your fingertips.
