Task management solution that enables retailers to plan, execute and monitor tasks and compliance levels in all stores. Corporate can coordinate planning, optimize store workload, manage by exception and view completion levels in realtime. Closed-loop system supports two-way feedback for continuous improvement.
The Reflexis task management application for Store Execution Management enables retailers to streamline communications, optimize workload, boost store level productivity and create a consistently positive consumer experience that drives increased sales. With the solution, which is among the first applications to be certified as Ready for IBM PureSystems, IBM's new family of expert integrated systems, corporate planning is coordinated, with the ability to view the task assignment and completion levels in all stores. Streamlined procedures deploy project and routine tasks to stores across the enterprise.
Projects (consisting of logical groups of tasks) are created, refined and scheduled by corporate planners, receive appropriate business and gatekeeper reviews and are deployed to targeted stores. Stores report their progress in real-time to provide status visibility across the enterprise. Task based alerts enable prompt management by exception and performance metrics provide feedback to corporate planners.
The Result: Seamlessly consistent execution, real-time visibility and proactive resolution of issues lead to increased revenues and reduced costs.
