Getting it Rite
Rite Aid, one of the USA’s leading drugstore chains, has about 4,700 stores across the US. They use our Cloud-based Schedule and Attendance Management software at every one.
Our system enables Rite Aid to improve the visibility, efficiency and control of their pharmacy schedules and data like labor costs and open shifts. This:
- improves labor utilization
- reduces schedule administration time
- improves compliance with all schedule-related processes.
An additional strategic goal of this project was aimed at improving work-life balance for pharmacists through the use of the associate portal for viewing and confirming schedules, making time off requests and shift bidding, all available anytime, anywhere.
As a true cloud solution, Rite Aid benefits from reduced upfront costs, regular system updates and improvements from the product roadmap.
We completed installation at all stores in March 2012.
‘Rite Aid selected Workplace based on their expertise on scheduling associates across multiple locations, user friendliness and their rapid implementation strategies.’
