The Iberian Sports Retail Group (ISRG), second largest sports retailer in Iberia, allies with SISQUAL® WFM software
It was at the beginning of 2018 that the leading British sports, fashion, and outdoor brand JD Sports announced the merging of business in the Iberian Peninsula between JD Group, JD Sprinter and Size? with the Portuguese Sport Zone. With this agreement, the Portuguese SONAE integrated a joint venture whose goal was the creation of a new sports retail group, reaching a leading position in the sports retail in the Iberian Peninsula. From this alliance, the Iberian Sports Retail Group (ISRG) emerged.
In September 2020 Sprinter/JDSports started the expansion project to implement the SISQUAL WFM tool in their stores in Spain. Now, the implementation of the SISQUAL® WFM software, which was already widely used by Sport Zone, will be extended to the rest of the group. Thus, like other large retailers, the group will work together with SISQUAL in the effective management of all its employees. The ISRG group has 8,700 employees divided by 6,160 employees in Sprinter JD España, 540 in Canarias SPZ, and 2 000 in Sport Zone and JD Sports in Portugal.
The group found in the SISQUAL® WFM software the ideal solution for greater effectiveness and optimal production efficiency, replacing planning once carried out in Excel, which translated into a lot of work and little control over the productivity of their teams.
For that the acquired modules were: SISQUAL® Profiler, SISQUAL® Forecast, SISQUAL® Team Dimensioning, SISQUAL® Quality of Life, SISQUAL® Auto Scheduling, SISQUAL® Time & Attendance, SISQUAL® Operations Cockpit, and SISQUAL® SalaryCalc.
The project is divided into three major phases:
- Implementation of the SISQUAL® Time & Attendance module in order to comply, in a practical and efficient way, with the new legislation in Spain for attendance register, which came into force on May 12, 2019. It defines that all companies are obliged to keep a record of their employees’ hours, regardless of their working hours, for four years.
- In the second phase, the tools and team management will be implemented in Sprinter, JD Sports and Sport Zone Canarias.
- In the third and last phase of the project the Forecast options will be implemented in Sport Zone, then extended to the others.
