Burlington Coat Factory Warehouse Corporation is to use Workbrain RetailERM (Employee Relationship Management) software to help manage scheduling, time, and attendance for employees in its retail stores in 42 states, as well as corporate sites and distribution centres.

The Web-based solution should help improve operational efficiency, streamline employee scheduling, enhance analytical and reporting capabilities, and provide manager self-service. It can also be integrated with the outerwear retailer's current and future financial, database, payroll, Linux operating system, and Oracle HRMS products. 

"We expect that Workbrain's ERM solution will quickly deliver tangible benefits to Burlington Coat Factory because it is built for rapid implementation and will interface with our other systems, reducing our payroll processing efforts," said Brad Friedman, vice president of information services, Burlington Coat Factory.

"Workbrain RetailERM is a platform to transform a broad variety of employee workplace processes. Most importantly, it should provide our managers with easy-to-use, analytical and reporting tools that will help them make smart decisions that will reduce costs."
