Dansk Supermarked Group, Denmark's largest retail group, which employs almost 47,000 staff and operates more than 1,400 stores throughout Europe, has selected the Kronos Workforce Central solution deployed in the Kronos Cloud to deliver a modern, automated workforce management solution across the organisation.

News Facts

  • Dansk Supermarked Group operates two of Denmark's key retail stores: føtex supermarkets and Bilka hypermarkets. The SaaS agreement will initially see the organization migrate its existing on-premise solution, currently managing 25,000 employees at its Bilka and føtex chains, to the Kronos Cloud.
  • As a result, Kronos Cloud will help Dansk Supermarked Group achieve a significant return on investment from its workforce management technology, as the retail group will gain greater operational efficiency without adding capital or resources. By replacing its on-premise system, Dansk will standardise employee timekeeping and planning across the sites to significantly reduce labour costs, increase productivity, and improve employee engagement.
  • Over time, Dansk will focus on store optimization by introducing new functionality such as forecasting, scheduling, employee self-service, and mobile solutions to enable its associates and store managers to benefit from modern, feature-rich applications that will help to attract, engage, and retain retail associates.
