Retail Manager Solutions Limited

Metro Activity Planner is RMS' project and task management module within their Metro software suite

Metro is the leading digital workplace solution, designed to be easily accessible to all cross-functional teams via smartphones, tablets and desktops. Metro's Activity Planner module is aware of all resource requirements within a store, from simple task management, daily routines, labour schedules and key project activities; providing the retailer with a holistic view of everything that is happening across their estate. Project templates, critical paths, auto-calculation of resource and task scheduling ensures planning, delivery and communication of major projects and in-store events ensuring project delivery and compliance.

Metro Activity Planners includes the following elements/modules:- 
  • Workflow Engine backed up with full workflow approval 
  • Activity Planner with  clear visibility of departments and projects presented using a configurable colour palette and project types
  • To Do List allows you to view the actions of a task and see whether it is on track or overdue.  You can re-allocate task if someone in the team is overloaded.
  • Capacity Calculator avoids the ‘rubber walls’ scenario ensuring delivery of tasks within budget.
  • Critical Path shows all tasks in the order that they need to be done in order to ensure right first time delivery.
  • Project Justification allows you to build up a picture of the requirements and allows the user to see what the project will deliver for the business.
  • Project Templates allows critical paths to be re-used and ensures continuous improvement  and refinement.

Traditionally, businesses will have an out of date paper copy of an Activity or Project plan on the wall of their office - with the metro activity planner, sites can see in real time what is being delivered, worked on and when.

Users can view live plans, plans in draft, plans approved and plans needing approval by stakeholders. Visibility of departments and projects can be presented easily using a configurable colour palette and project types.

The Activity Planner module most clearly demonstrates how multiple metro module data and connectivity is used within the overall Metro solution to deliver real business benefit.
