In retail, efficient scheduling takes into account all task areas of a branch or an entire chain: A sufficient number of employees with the appropriate qualifications at the checkout terminals, in the individual storage areas, at the desks in administration or in delivery are indispensable for the smooth running of business processes.

In addition, at peak times and thus, increased customer traffic, additional workers must be scheduled - often these "hot" core times require additional part-time staff. Trainees and temporary staff must also be planned into the work processes of a branch according to their skills and professional level.

Supermarkets or specialised retail chains with several locations place additional demands on cross-location staff planning.
