Stockholm, July 6, 2020 - Quinyx, a leader in workforce management solutions, is pleased to announce that Apotea has chosen them for its 850 employees. Apotea is Sweden’s first fully-scaled pharmacy that does not have a physical store but solely operates online. Ever since its start in 2011, Apotea has grown into the largest online pharmacy in Sweden, employing around 850 people.
As the company only sells online, the supply chain has become a natural competitive advantage for Apotea, and it’s also something they have a strong focus on. The hub for their efficient supply chain was created at the same time as Apotea’s 38,000 m2 eco-friendly logistics center, which was built in 2017.
Apotea has now chosen Quinyx as its cloud-based workforce management solution, to continue supporting its vigorous expansion.
The decision to look for a new workforce management system was based on a need to reduce the time spent on administrative tasks around scheduling and time and attendance, such as annual leave, sick leave, and other absences. Quinyx will be used for staffing and time management for Apotea’s warehouse, customer support and offices.
It was important for Apotea to find a modern, future-proof, ready for growth system, offering improved communication with all employees via an easy-to-use interface.
“We decided to go for Quinyx since we want to continue developing a great employee experience with modern tools that are easy to use and decrease administration in favor of our core business. In times like these, the communication between employees and managers has never been more important and we are looking forward to using the functionality in Quinyx for this."
Pär Svärdson, Founder and Managing Director of Apotea
Apotea will be implementing modules for scheduling, communication as well as time and attendance. They will also use the popular Quinyx mobile app allowing employees to easily swap shifts, punch in and out, apply for their annual leave and more.
Quinyx CEO and Founder Erik Fjellborg added:
“We’re delighted to welcome the fast-growing company Apotea to Quinyx, and we’re looking forward to delivering tools for decreasing their administration, optimising their staffing and above all, engaging their workforce during their continued growth journey.”
