Boston, September 11th 2019 – Quinyx, a leader in workforce management solutions, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Kal Tire, Canada's largest independent tire dealer.
The partnership will see Quinyx support staff scheduling and time tracking, and deliver workforce insights to enable effective team planning across Kal Tire’s service, mechanical, sales, management and support workforces. Quinyx’s software will be rolled out to approximately 3,000 Kal Tire team members across Kal Tire stores in Canada.
Kal Tire will use Quinyx’s core modules of Schedule (flexible staff scheduling), Time & Attendance (time reporting and absence management), Webpunch (online employee ‘punch in’ system), Mobile & Communication and Forecast (data-driven, real time forecasting).
Speaking about the new partnership, Clifford Smith, CIO at Kal Tire, commented: ‘’As a business operating from British Columbia through Ontario, that includes employing many seasonal team members, we have complex scheduling needs. It is vital that we partner with a workforce management specialist that helps us schedule staff shifts flexibly and plan our workforce requirements accurately. We look forward to building a longstanding and prosperous relationship with Quinyx.’’
Quinyx CEO and Founder Erik Fjellborg added, “By using a cloud-based workforce management system, Kal Tire is embracing a software that delivers business benefits by putting its people first. This partnership is an exciting step in our mission to make people’s work lives more enjoyable – and it’s great to see Kal Tire share in our passion for simple and flexible working.”
Quinyx is a cloud-based, mobile-first workforce management software that fuels growth for people and businesses in service industries.
Quinyx was founded by CEO Erik Fjellborg when working at McDonald’s as a student.

McDonald’s loved Erik’s solution and became Quinyx’s first customer.
