Empower Software Solutions, a leading provider of workforce and human resources (HR) solutions, has announced that BJ’s Wholesale Club has commenced its rollout of EmpowerWFM™, the company’s workforce management solution, across BJ’s 198 locations in 15 states. The decision to rollout to all clubs follows a successful pilot of the solution.

In the pilot phase, BJ’s leveraged all core modules of EmpowerWFM, including labor forecasting, scheduling, budgeting and time and attendance. All modules will be part of the full rollout. Designed for organizations with complex, enterprise-wide labor management requirements, EmpowerWFM, is used by several of the largest U.S. retailers and grocers and will be on display at the National Retail Federation’s (NRF) BIG Show in New York today and tomorrow.

“After evaluating a number of workforce management solutions and successfully piloting Empower Software’s solution, we are excited to begin this full-club deployment,” says Scott Floeck, Senior Vice President, Business Information Officer of BJ’s Wholesale Club. “We anticipate EmpowerWFM to have a positive impact on our business, our members and team members.”

“Producing automated schedules for BJ’s over 24,000 team members requires a high level of sophistication and scalability,” says Jim Hoefflin, President and CEO of Empower Software. “We are pleased that BJ’s has chosen us for this critical and complex implementation.”

Martin Linusson, Empower’s Director of Workforce Management Services adds, “BJ’s has demonstrated industry-leading vision in advancing their processes through the configuration of EmpowerWFM. We expect great results.”
