Scottsdale, Ariz. -- JDA Software Group announced that Bob Evans Farms will deploy a JDA workforce management solution (formerly RedPrairie WFM) in approximately 565 Bob Evans restaurants.
Bob Evans selected JDA to help improve forecasting and scheduling of labor, drive proper placement of staff throughout the course of the day and provide exceptional service to every customer.
We are very excited to kick-off the next generation of labor management solutions at Bob Evans,” said Harvey Brownlee, chief restaurant operations officer, Bob Evans Farms. “The journey started in May 2011 with a cross functional team tasked with identifying a solution that could deliver a balanced approach to managing labor. Our goals were to drive strong guest satisfaction, improve ease of operation, and improve the team member experience while delivering shareholder value. After a thorough evaluation of seven potential partners, RedPrairie (now JDA) was selected as our partner of choice.”
JDA’s WFM implementation at Bob Evans will start with a pilot stage in the second quarter of 2013, followed by initial deployment in the third quarter. Solution capabilities will include optimized scheduling, time and attendance, employee self-service, performance management and mobile applications including JDA Mobile Shift Connect, JDA Mobile Employee Connect and JDA Mobile Manager Connect.
