NEW YORK CITY, N.Y., Jan. 12, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — TimeForge is presenting its vision for a comprehensive retail labor management platform, which will be showcased at the National Retail Federation (NRF) 2015 trade show. The TimeForge product line highlights a range of innovative solutions suited for every retail environment, from the retail store front to the back of a restaurant kitchen.
TimeForge products will be presented alongside Samsung Electronics America and will be showcased in the Samsung booth, #600, and in the Star booth, booth #3925, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center at the 2015 NRF show, which takes place January 11-14.
“TimeForge is excited about the future of retail and technology, and we see a lot of opportunity for restaurants and retailers. Beacons and other new technologies will continue to unearth new possibilities in sales and labor management, while existing technology can be improved to provide deeper insights into core business practices,” said Anthony Presley, President of TimeForge. “Our solutions enable retailers to improve profitability at their stores, and we continue to improve upon our product line based on customer feedback.”
PlaceForge and Asset Tracking:
Debuted at the Retail Solutions Providers Association (RSPA) show, PlaceForge is a unique system designed to track staff members and other key assets such as shopping carts and handheld computers. Beacons, similar to the iBeacon protocol supported by Apple, are deployed on the badges of staff members and on shopping carts, and the movements of the beacons are tracked throughout a store.
This ground-breaking product integrates with real-time sales data from more than 20 Point of Sale (PoS) systems, and could be used to identify hot and cold areas of a store, locate loss leaders, justify product layout modifications, and quickly alert management of potential problems on the sales floor.
Business Intelligence and Demand Forecasting:
Also on display at the NRF show is TimeForge’s BI and demand forecasting modules. These tools are designed from the ground up to import POS sales information and forecast future sales and inventory needs on a transactional basis. The Business Intelligence software allows managers and IT professionals to build role-based dashboards with item, category, and cashier level analysis to identify trends and changes on the sales floor.
Attendance and Time Clocks:
TimeForge continues to expand their time clocks with a new offering from Star. TimeForge recently debuted the Star AsuraCPRNT time clock – an innovative touch screen timeclock product with an integrated printing solution for printing punch hours, schedules, and real-time reports. The self-service kiosk allows staff members to quickly clock in or out, request time off, swap shifts, and print out upcoming schedules. Managers can use the solution to instantly view labor and sales data directly on the device or on the TimeForge mobile platform.
Staff Scheduling Done Right:
TimeForge will also be displaying its award winning scheduling software. The retail staff scheduling software brings together employee self-service, the ability to request time off, and staff member’s scheduling preferences from the web or mobile app, and combines staff member data with business metrics for efficient schedules. Business metrics commonly include minimum and maximum staffing requirements, sales growth or stagnation, real-time sales data, Affordable Care Act (ACA) needs, etc. By combining this data into an easy-to-use format for retail managers, TimeForge allows managers to convey schedule changes automatically to staff, post schedules, and enforce labor requirements.
TimeForge helps businesses in the hospitality, restaurant, retail, and grocery industries manage labor, build schedules, and run profitably while reducing turnover and improving operations. Used by businesses throughout the world, TimeForge is designed from the ground-up to simplify the complicated process of labor management.
