Key Reasons to Meet with Shyft at NRF 2019

Shyft to attend NRF 2019

As soon as we wrapped up NRF 2018, we started to think about NRF 2019. We’ve been suiting up, counting down and booking meetings for Retail’s Big Show 2019. This year, we’re going even bigger and more boldly than before, and our booth is going to be out of this world!

At Booth 1131, you can meet with the Shyft team, see a demo of our product and learn how a mobile workforce management solution engages workers to decrease absenteeism, improve team morale and save managers time.

See how Shyft is engaging millennials and Gen Z workers

Today’s workers are used to using intuitive, well-designed apps in their daily life. Shyft is designed to be easy-to-use, engaging and fun for today’s mobile workforce. It’s the reason many associates have asked for it by name, and why we consistently receive a rating of 4-plus stars in the App Store. You’ll even be able to meet our beloved mascot, Shiffy, in his new NRF 2019 gear!

Offering a mobile tool like Shyft helps with recruiting and retaining team members, especially millennials and Gen Z workers. In a survey of more than 5,000 employees using Shyft at a national retailer, 93% of associates and 86% of managers stated that Shyft is a benefit they enjoy.

Evaluate Shyft as a possible mobile extension for your WFM system

Through new integration partnerships, Shyft will be available as a mobile extension for larger workforce management systems in 2019. Leverage legacy WFM capabilities while connecting with your frontline workforce with a tool they’ll love to use. Talk to a Shyft team member about ways Shyft may be available as a mobile extension for your WFM system.

Discuss how empowering employees with scheduling flexibility supports your business goals

Life happens, and sometimes a team member needs someone to cover their shift. If they can’t get it covered, they may call out and leave their manager to find someone to fill the spot. Using Shyft, associates can instead broadcast their request for shift coverage to their team, and others can easily offer to cover their shift.

By empowering associates to manage their shifts, Shyft decreases absenteeism, saves time for managers and improves team morale. With more associates on the sales floor, employees can focus on helping customers, converting sales and supporting sales promotions.

Learn about the pilot that led to a full-fleet rollout by a national retailer

Shyft is helping Gap Inc. provide additional flexibility to its employees while ensuring stores are staffed appropriately. After a successful pilot at Old Navy, Gap Inc. chose to deploy Shyft across all stores in its portfolio of brands.

Our CEO, Brett Patrontasch is hosting a Big Ideas session with Andrea Madigan, Senior Manager of Field Profitability at Banana Republic to discuss takeaways from the national rollout. Catch their session on January 15th at 1pm on Stage 3 in the EXPO Hall, Level 1.

Last year, we learned from industry leaders, formed new connections with retailers and had excellent conversations about the benefits of mobile workforce management technology. We can’t wait to do it all again this year, but with more rocketships.

Stop by Booth 1131 to see what we’re up to and learn more about how Shyft’s mobile tools engage today’s workforce to support retailers’ business goals.
