Our customers love the Legion employee mobile app. Their hourly employees rate it a 4.8 in the app store!

In today’s retail landscape, competition is fierce, and customer expectations are skyrocketing; empowering retail employees while optimizing labor costs is paramount for success. When you look at our daily lives, there is one thing we all have in common ー many of our daily interactions occur on our mobile devices. So, why have so many WFM vendors looked at their mobile app as an afterthought?

Legion’s mission is to turn hourly jobs into good jobs. We don’t just say it; we live it in everything we do. Our focus is on maximizing labor efficiencies and employee engagement simultaneously. That is why we’ve invested significantly in delivering the industry’s most intuitive and adopted employee mobile app.

Legion WFM enables intelligent automation to turn your employee’s mobile devices into a powerful tool for managing their work lives.

Because these powerful tools are all built into our WFM solution, they share all the same configs, master data, and integrations. They are tightly embedded with Automated Scheduling, Time and Attendance, and are clock-aware to prevent off-clock communications or punches.

And our intuitive, modern app is the most highly rated app in the app store, with a 4.8 rating and an adoption rate of 90% or more among our customers.

What are retailers saying about the app?

“Legion is a competitive advantage for us in attracting workers. Everyone uses the app.”
— Executive Director of IS, National Petro Convenience Store Chain


“There’s not an employee that’s not in love with Legion, and especially the app because
[employees] didn’t have that visibility and ability to start seeing what other shifts are available themselves instead of asking a manager before.”
— Executive Director of Information Systems, Retail

What are hourly employees saying about the app?

Android App User
“It tells my schedule as well as who I will be working with. That makes it easier to prepare for my day. It’s great that it also keeps your punches and total hours for the week in case something needs fixing you can stay on top of it. Overall it’s super easy to use and navigate.”


Apple App Store User
“I love this app. It notifies you when your schedule is published, and you can see the hours for the whole week, which is awesome and I like that you can request days off or switch shifts, and I love that you can see who I’m working with to prepare lol”

That is what we mean by maximizing labor efficiencies and employee engagement simultaneously!

Retail employees, especially the younger generations like Gen Z and Millennials, prioritize work-life balance and flexibility. Intuitive mobile apps integrated with WFM cater to these expectations. Their flexibility empowers employees to manage their personal lives better, leading to higher job satisfaction, reduced turnover, and increased productivity. Giving employees multiple apps to use that are not intuitive leads to apps and WFM solutions that employees do not adopt and are hidden attrition factors. Having one employee mobile app makes adoption and engagement straightforward.

Engagement is more than a buzzword. It can have a demonstrable impact on your business ー Gallup’s ongoing engagement survey work has found that companies with highly engaged workforces are 23% more profitable and 14% more productive.

In today’s fast-paced retail industry, intuitive mobile apps integrated with WFM have become indispensable tools for empowering and engaging retail employees. By providing enhanced accessibility, real-time updates, self-service capabilities, and flexibility, employee mobile apps revolutionize the employee experience and drive operational excellence. Retailers that embrace intuitive mobile apps as part of their retail WFM strategy stand to gain a competitive edge with happier and more efficient employees who can better serve their customers’ needs. The time to embrace this powerful technology is now, as it holds the key to unlocking the full potential of hourly employees in today’s digital era.
