SOUTHLAKE, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Logile Inc., a provider of Real-Time Workforce Management and Execution Management Solutions, announced today that Pittsburgh-based multi-format food and fuel retailer Giant Eagle, Inc. has implemented Logile’s state-of-the-art Enterprise Labor Model™ (ELM™) solution and is implementing Logile’s Enterprise Execution and Compliance Management (EC5™) solution to use across its supermarket banners and convenience stores.
Logile’s Enterprise Labor Model™ (ELM™) solution expands Giant Eagle’s labor modeling capabilities by providing a web-based system to dynamically manage their store specific fixed activities, characteristics, department profiles and volume drivers. “Logile’s solution has enabled us to empower our Store Leaders with greater ownership and customization of the fixed activities and characteristics in their stores,” said Dan May, Giant Eagle’s Senior Vice President of Supply Chain and Giant Eagle Business Systems. “The dynamic nature of our business and the often changing physical layouts of our stores make it necessary for us to have an equally dynamic modeling system. The Logile system allows our Store Leaders to better plan for and execute the activities needed to maintain their departments and deliver world-class customer service.”
“Logile’s unique solution and track record of integrating with existing workforce management tools was paramount in our decision to engage them,” said May. “The Logile solution complements our engineering approaches, existing systems and our overall strategy towards in-store execution.” May continued, “We like the possibilities the Logile systems offer and will continue to explore the robust opportunities associated with the technology.”
Purna Mishra, Logile’s founder and CEO, stated, “Giant Eagle is well known in the industry for their best-in-class use of labor modeling and planning systems, including their Giant Eagle Business Systems (GEBS) methodology. Logile’s solutions will increase Giant Eagle’s ability to more accurately plan, execute, and manage their store tasks.”
