OfficeMax engages RedPrairie for workforce managment

ATLANTA — OfficeMax is using RedPrairie Corp.'s Enterprise Workforce Management tool to boost labor efficiencies and manage costs enterprise-wide across its supply chain and retail stores, RedPrairie announced in a company press release.

RedPrairie’s Enterprise Workforce Management solution enables retailers to manage their workforce holistically addressing time and attendance, forecasting, scheduling, labor standards, execution management and learning management, according to the company. 

OfficeMax is currently using RedPrairie’s Enterprise Workforce Management application suite in three Customer Fulfillment Centers (CFCs). The CFCs in Chicago, Washington, DC and San Francisco rolled out Enterprise Workforce Management from RedPrairie earlier this year, and the Orlando CFC is currently in the process of implementing it.

“OfficeMax wants to continue to enhance its ability to forecast, schedule and manage labor to ensure that the right people are available at the right time across the enterprise to meet customer expectations,” said Larry Hartley, SVP, supply chain at OfficeMax. “RedPrairie’s Enterprise Workforce Management solution will help OfficeMax to better align the strategic management of our labor resources throughout the supply chain.”
