The Lewy Group have taken a pioneering step in installing a cloud-based workforce management solution into 16 of their Cash Converters stores.
ShopWorks’ cloud-based software as a service (SAAS) solution gives retailers increased control over their staff planning and management processes, allowing them to cut personnel costs by 7%.
John Colbert, Director of Operations at The Lewy Group, stated that they anticipate cost savings of approximately £200 per store weekly.
“It has also allowed us to centralise rota planning and given us the ability to put better budgetary controls in place.”
This software overhauls paperwork and spreadsheet-based operations, dramatically streamlining the processes for managing staff scheduling, budgeting, pay and attendance among franchises such as Cash Converters. This yields huge savings in administrative costs.
Mike Hennessy, who is Operation’s Director at ShopWorks, remarks: “It is astonishing to think that even with the financial gains that Workforce Management solutions such as ShopWorks offers, 80% of medium and small businesses still use paper or spreadsheet systems.
ShopWorks has introduced biometric-based time and attendance (T&A) terminals at each store, which leverage a person’s unique physical traits in order to guarantee a perfect attendance record.
Staff can easily check their hours and wages, either online or with the help of a special app. They can also use this handy mobile tool to receive messages from the retailer.
