April 2021 - SNCB, the National Railway Company of Belgium, have appointed the leading workforce optimisation solution Quinyx to manage the schedules of their ticket office employees in train stations across the country.
Allowing employees to take ownership of working schedules, freeing up time spent on administrative tasks by the managers and reducing payroll discrepancies were key objectives for SNCB when they started seeking a new Workforce Management solution.
Erik Fjellborg, CEO and founder of Quinyx, expressed his satisfaction to have been chosen following a rigorous vendor selection process that involved a number of reputable providers. He said,
“We are delighted to welcome SNCB to the growing Quinyx family in the Benelux. Trains will always be a vital transportation method as many people depend on them for work and leisure. Being given the opportunity to make employees at these stations happier with more flexible schedules and being able to bring more efficiency with workforce optimisation therefore mean a lot to us. This perfectly fits with Quinyx’s mission to improve the lives of millions of employees, as we believe that a happy workforce is a happy business for management and customers alike.”
The easy-to-use, mobile-first platform always sees extremely high levels of adoption from the start, so SNCB can expect to see a positive return as soon as Quinyx is rolled out. The cloud-based setup also optimises the integration with existing systems - in this instance, a particular focal point for SNCB decision makers, who were looking for a smooth integration and seamless transition.
The functionalities to be used by SNCB employees are Scheduling, Time and Attendance (employee punching, absence management & payroll), Engagement, Budget & Forecast (advanced scheduling), and Integrations/API.
With Quinyx, SNCB will always have the right people in the right place at the right time. A warm welcome to the Quinyx family!
