One of the most important duties of a retail store manager is scheduling your retail sales staff, retail store assistants, and other personnel. As you probably know all to well, retail scheduling is no small task. Retail businesses operate with razor thin labor budgets. Saving even 30 minutes a week can mean the difference between meeting or exceeding your margin. Using Hello Scheduling to create and maintain your retail schedule saves you hours each month that would otherwise count against your labor budget or, at the very least, keep you from focusing on what’s important: retail store customer service & sales. Keeping you sales manager cooped up in an office laboring over a spreadsheet wastes valuable training, coaching, or floor time.
