Workbrain announced today the launch of Budget Creation and Management, the second generation of its Workforce Planning application. Built for leading retailers, the solution is designed to optimize the allocation of labor expenses by uniting fiscal and operational budget planning processes. The solution provides a unique top-down and bottom-up approach to labor budgeting to help align store execution with corporate goals. The solution is being showcased at the National Retail Federation’s (NRF) 96th Annual Convention & Expo being held in New York from January 15-17. Workbrain is exhibiting in booth #1901.

For the first time in the industry, clients can consider each location’s needs and provide stores with an accurate labor budget from which to forecast, deploy and manage their workforce. We are proud that a number of leading retailers have endorsed our vision of total workforce management by implementing Budget Creation and Management.” [Read more…]
