Praxis is one of the largest Dutch DIY retailers and part of the Maxeda DIY Group, operating 139 stores, including 29 mega stores and eleven with a gardening center. Praxis employs almost 4,500 people. After a pilot for labor standards Praxis decided to select an advanced scheduler to replace the various ways of scheduling the labor hours in their stores. Changing the way Praxis schedules would standardize the way of working, reduce work pressure and align the budgeted labor hours with the amount of work in the stores. Praxis selected RedPrairie's Workforce Management solution for retail as a scheduler and Capgemini as their implementation partner. The scheduler is currently live in all of Praxis' own stores and some franchise stores as well.
