Leading global entertainment provider completes go-live across 500 stores in 10 weeks

RedPrairie Holding, Inc., a productivity solutions provider, has announced that Blockbuster Inc. has completed its rollout of RedPrairie's Execution Management solution in 500 stores. A leading provider of retail and rental movie and game entertainment, Blockbuster completed the rollout in 10 weeks, and plans to implement the solution in its remaining stores.

Explains Jeff Gloor, Blockbuster VP of Operations, "Integrating Execution Management with our existing Workforce Management solution means our district managers can focus more time on coaching store associates and driving sales not only in day-to-day operations, but during specific promotions as well."

Blockbuster is using Execution Management and Workforce Management to provide store-specific communication, gather store data quickly and accurately, and provide store on-time compliance data to all levels of the organization. As a whole, the two integrated solutions provide a greater degree of visibility and consistency.

"We are pleased Blockbuster has seen advantages in integrating Execution Management with its existing Workforce Management solution," says RedPrairie VP Product Strategy, Noel Goggin. "Retailers now more than ever are looking for successful strategies to build their businesses."
