Stores Get Work Done With Axsium Group and Opterus Partnership

Toronto, ON – July 23, 2015 Axsium Group today announced a strategic partnership with Opterus, the leading provider of cost-effective, cloud-based store communications and task management solutions. Axsium’s work measurement software, Opus, provides retailers with an easy-to-use, cloud-based platform to create and manage labor standards.  This partnership will provide retailers with a true end-to-end view of labor required to complete critical tasks and then a solution to execute on those tasks.

Retailers have historically depended on a series of fragmented work measurement tools to create their labor models. They might have a tool for building labor standards, then another for evaluating them and a myriad of spreadsheets in between, making it very difficult to determine if they had the right amount of labor. Opus completely eliminates this challenge by taking all of those different elements and giving retailers one powerful tool to truly understand how much labor is necessary by store and by department.

Accurate and sustainable labor standards are critical to successful task management and whole store communications. Opterus’ Store Ops-Center is an intuitive, easy-to-use cloud solution designed specifically for retail to simply and effectively manage and execute store tasks and communications. The solution measures and increases operational compliance, communicates corporate policy, manages day-to-day objectives and tasks, and handles issues between corporate office and store locations.

News Facts:

  • Opus sets a foundation by providing accurate and sustainable labor standards in one solution, removing the dependency on multiple tools to develop a labor model.
  • Leveraging Store Ops-Center, retailers effectively manage and execute store tasks and communications.
  • With a complete view of the labor required to complete tasks, retailers can successfully build a schedule that meets their task dependencies.
  • Both Opus and Store Ops-Center are secure, reliable and cloud-based solution.
  • Both provide an innovative user interface that provides a highly intuitive navigational experience.
