This article states that web-based workforce management can ensure enterprise visibility, control and standards throughout convenience store chains. Most workforce-management systems in place today are outdated and not standardized throughout convenience store chains, preventing management from viewing and evaluating information about time, attendance and labor scheduling. Forecasting labor becomes difficult without accurate data to determine schedules and eventually, employee morale and customer satisfaction drop, resulting in a loss of sates, according to AMR Research.
