AMARILLO, Texas — Pak-A-Sak Inc. has completed its company-wide rollout of PDI/Labor Scheduler. The Amarillo, Texas-based chain has implemented the web-based schedule management software, released earlier this year, in all 20 of its convenience stores throughout the Texas Panhandle.
PDI/Labor Scheduler allows managers to control every aspect of employee scheduling, ensuring that their stores are adequately staffed without incurring overtime. Schedule views are organized by work type or employee name, with drag-and-drop features for creating and updating schedules.
“Our company employs more than 250 people, and the success of the business depends on our ability to have the right people, in the right place, at the right time to serve our customers” said Gary McKee, chief information officer of Pak-A-Sak. “In addition to being easy to implement, PDI/Labor Scheduler has helped us become strategic about managing our labor force in a way that saves money without jeopardizing our great customer service.”
PDI’s latest offering is the second product in a new line of web-based labor management software called PDI/Workforce. The first product, PDI/Time Clock, was released last year and allows employees to clock in and out, track breaks, and change their work type for a shift.
“In the coming year, our goal will be to continue helping our customers centralize control of their organizations with PDI software, so much of our focus will be on completing the other major portions of PDI/Workforce,” said Jim Wade, vice president of development for PDI.
PDI/Payroll, the third part of PDI/Workforce, is scheduled to be released in 2015. Temple,
