Embracing Efficiency: Streamlining Workforce Management in Retail & Shopping Environments
Easy scheduling and staff management for international retailers
TimePlan helps retail customers in more than 25 countries schedule their employees, keep track of work hours, make forecasts, analytics, and HR administration.
Retail stores are often open on weekends and in the evening. TimePlan helps keep track of accumulated work hours, ensuring that each of the employees receives the allowances they are entitled to. TimePlan also ensures that each employee cannot accumulate unnecessary overtime or work less hours than their contract states.
Magasin Du Nord controls wage costs with TimePlan
“We selected TimePlan because the program gives our department managers an easy and clear way to see their wage costs. They are accountable for those costs with regards to their budget.”

POWER introduces TimePlan to employees from the start
For the consumer electronics retailer POWER, TimePlan is part of the expansion strategy in Denmark. Operational Manager Mads Stenger uses Digital Signature to sign 70 new employee contracts in Viby, and he shows the TimePlan App at employee intro meetings at the new POWER stores.
POWER A/S is growing rapidly. Seven new stores are due to open in Denmark next year, including in Viby, Holstebro and Sonderborg.
Operational Manager Mads Stenger has used TimePlan since 2013 at Expert, and when he helped start POWER in 2015, TimePlan was an integrated part of the setup for the first five stores.
Autoplan and flexibility
Now, TimePlan will be a part of the seven new POWER stores. Mads Stenger is particularly pleased about Autoplan, which gives the new store managers the ability to do automatic shift planning and save time and wage costs. POWER has 700 employees with plans to hire a further 400 over the next 12 months.
”What we are particularly pleased about with TimePlan is the fact that the program is intuitive and that our employees understand it right away. TimePlan also has tremendous flexibility. You can run a single basic plan and create detailed wage budgets and reports.”

Trade shifts on the TimePlan App
Mads Stenger is also enthusiastic about the TimePlan App.
”We show our employees the TimePlan App during our intro days and set it up on their smart phones. It is important to retain our young workers with good software products. 60 percent of our employees are hourly paid. It is a great help for us to put shifts up “for sale” on the app and let the employees sign up for them. It saves us a lot of time, phone calls, SMSes and Excel spreadsheets,” says Mads Stenger.
The Autoplan module automates the detailed planning process and allows you more time with your customers and employees.
TimePlan warns you if collective agreements and local rules are not adhered to during planning and scheduling.
TimePlan gives you an updated overview of staffing. You avoid under and over staffing and save work hours and wage costs.
TimePlan has a clear and intuitive user interface, which optimises the planning process. All data is stored in one place.
