Edeka – automating supermarket staff planning with Papershift

Workforce planning in the retail industry has complex requirements, such as scheduling for multiple departments, dealing with employee availability and customer fluctuation.

What’s more, many different wage types have to be calculated at the end of the month for the payroll, and rosters need to be updated daily and be visible to employees anywhere, any time.

With Papershift, we were able to reduce our workforce planning workload and produce better results. The integrated payroll accounting is particularly helpful, as we can take different wage types into consideration.’
