Managing tasks and scheduling them down to a store level can be complex. However, it is also essential in the modern retail landscape. Specialty retailers around the world are turning to task management tools to aid with this process. Along the way, they are discovering that these solutions can net many other benefits.

Streamline Process and Measure Results

Good task management tools allow the scheduling of tasks down to the individual store and district levels. They include the ability to track task completion and associated work effort. This can help track results across all levels of your retail organization. In turn, will ensure that your customer has a consistent brand experience across your entire estate. 

Maximize your labor spend without increasing hours

Effective tasking helps plan better around your store’s peak selling hours to ensure that customer experience doesn’t suffer. An effective tasking tool must be paired with scheduling.  This allows the use of ‘available capacity’ within your schedule to manage time efficiently without adding additional labor spend.

Engage and interact across your entire estate

A tasking tool needs to include robust communication and collaboration functionality. This can include document libraries, discussion boards, media markup, and sharing features. Using these communication features can help keep your staff informed and motivated, while streamlining communications and driving accountability.  

Deliver a consistent experience to customers at all levels of your brand

It is common knowledge in the specialty retail industry – consumers value consistent brand experiences. Whether the customers cross a retailer’s lease line in New York or Los Angeles, the in-store experience must be the same.

This is where tasking and scheduling tools come in. The enhanced communication and collaboration they allow for help deliver consistency. Better communication also promotes employee engagement. This can be integral to keeping store associates motivated and reducing employee churn. This. in turn, facilitates a much more pleasant experience for customers as well.

Understanding your requirements is almost as important as having the right tool
