Today PDI announced that Pak-A-Sak has completed its company-wide rollout of PDI/Labor Scheduler. The Amarillo-based chain implemented the web-based schedule management software, which was released earlier this year, in all 20 of its stores throughout the Texas Panhandle.
PDI/Labor Scheduler allows managers to effectively control every aspect of employee scheduling, ensuring their stores are adequately staffed without incurring overtime. Schedule views are neatly organized by work type or employee name, and intuitive drag-and-drop features make creating and updating schedules an easy process.
“Our company employs more than 250 people, and the success of the business depends on our ability to have the right people, in the right place, at the right time to serve our customers” says Gary McKee, chief information officer of Pak-A-Sak. “In addition to being easy to implement, PDI/Labor Scheduler has helped us become strategic about managing our labor force in a way that saves money without jeopardizing our great customer service.”
PDI’s latest offering is the second product in a new line of web-based labor management software called PDI/Workforce. The first product, PDI/Time Clock, was released last year and allows employees to clock in and out, track breaks, and change their work type for a shift.
“We are so excited to bring PDI/Labor Scheduler to market, and the success Pak-A-Sak is already experiencing is incredible,” says Jim Wade, vice president of development for PDI. “In the coming year, our goal will be to continue helping our customers centralize control of their organizations with PDI software, so much of our focus will be on completing the other major portions of PDI/Workforce.”
PDI/Payroll, the third part of PDI/Workforce, is scheduled to be released in 2015.
