July 13, 2022 // YOOBIC, the all-in-one digital workplace for frontline teams, today announced a new strategic partnership with Legion Technologies, the pioneer in AI-powered workforce management (WFM), to provide the most comprehensive solution available to employers with large hourly workforces. The combined power of these platforms will allow more visibility, transparency, and operational efficiency for frontline teams.

Hourly workforce operations are in dire need of transformation. With two-thirds of frontline workers (60%) describing their job as understaffed, and three-quarters (72%) feeling unduly worn out after work, workload management is a critical capability for today’s retailers, food service operators, and other businesses. Additionally, Legion’s recent State of the Hourly Workforce Report uncovered that hourly workers had an Employee Net Promoter Score of -7 – indicating a deep dissatisfaction among this group.

To boost morale and retain their best employees, businesses need to bring workload into sync with capacity. Together, Legion and YOOBIC will enable these businesses to increase engagement through superior task management, communication, and efficiency. As complements, these solutions modernize the frontline experience.

Legion is known as a pioneer in AI-powered workforce management (WFM), with a powerful platform that helps businesses spanning from retailers and restaurants to logistics and manufacturing simultaneously optimize labor efficiency and enhance the employee experience. With advanced, AI-driven demand forecasting and labor budgeting, the Legion WFM platform enables organizations to optimize labor efficiency and increase sales by assigning their best workers to the shifts and situations where they are most needed while driving employee satisfaction with greater scheduling flexibility and control, modern communication tools and self-service capabilities, instant access to earned wages and performance and rewards designed specifically for the needs of the hourly employees and their managers.

Through the new partnership, the Legion WFM platform will dovetail seamlessly with YOOBIC’s game-changing mobile-optimized digital workplace tools to deliver across-the-board benefits for top retail and food services organizations as they streamline operations and engage their workforces. Together, YOOBIC and Legion will further supercharge frontline teams with capabilities that provide more efficient task management, improved labor optimization, and greater empowerment for hourly employees.

“For frontline teams, YOOBIC’s powerful digital workplace platform and Legion’s AI-based WFM platform really are a match made in heaven,” said Sanish Mondkar, Legion CEO and founder. “Now, employers can automatically create optimized schedules that match business needs with employee preferences — while simultaneously empowering their frontline teams to work smarter and deliver more value along the way.”

“Legion has built an amazing WFM solution, and this strategic partnership will add enormous value for YOOBIC’s retail and food service customers,” said Fabrice Haiat, YOOBIC CEO. “By bringing together these two solutions, we’re building something that’s greater than the sum of its parts — a true end-to-end solution that simultaneously optimizes workforce management, boosts efficiency and engagement, and dramatically improves the employee experience.”
