American Apparel implements Infor workforce management solution
Atlanta — Infor, a provider of business application software, announced that American Apparel has selected and implemented the company’s WFM Workbrain solution to manage the retailer’s global workforce.
American Apparel needed a flexible and scalable tool that could be deployed across all its operations, allowing the company to better manage its global workforce with integrated time and attendance and store labor scheduling. By leveraging its existing timeclock hardware, the retailer was able to implement Infor’s Workbrain Time and Attendance solution in 15 weeks.
“Our ability to implement Global Time and Attendance in just 15 weeks is truly a testament to the flexibility and extendibility of the Workbrain application,” said Stacey Shulman, VP technology, American Apparel. “Infor Workbrain’s mathematical — rather than heuristic — approach to solving our scheduling challenges was a key factor in our decision to move forward.”
