January 27, 2020 - Research U7

The demand for labor has only grown with the current state of the job market. Historically low unemployment coupled with an aging population has created a significant shortage in the candidate pool of any industry, especially in retail, where the need for labor is constant. Having recognized the market-wide need to attract and retain employees, JDA Software offers its software as a service (SaaS) based workforce management solution as a means to create schedules that are optimized based on the type of labor that they pertain to, saving organizations 3 to 6 percent in labor costs and reducing turnover by up to 50 percent.
