Builder supplier takes on workforce management system

Building and home improvement retail group Travis Perkins hopes to cut costs and boost productivity with implementation of a new workforce management system for its 15,000 UK staff.

The company, which has more than 800 Travis Perkins outlets and 178 Wickes stores, has signed a contract with WorkPlace Systems for the use of the supplier’s Labour Budgeting, Forecasting, Scheduling, and Time & Attendance software modules.

WorkPlace will also develop a specific set of labour standards for Wickes and Travis Perkins, to create an operating model designed to improve the accuracy of labour budgets and forecasts.

Brian Baker, north divisional director for Wickes, who is sponsoring the project, said: “Wickes views the implementation of a workforce management system as one of the best ways to drive operational costs reduction, improved store productivity and customer service.”
