Axsium Group Expands Service Offering and Redoubles Commitment to the Retail Sector
New York, January 11, 2009 -- Axsium Group Inc., North America’s leading Workforce Management (WFM) consulting firm, has solidified its role as the “Go To” advisor for retailers with the establishment of its Global Retail Practice.
Tad Shepperd, a respected industry veteran with more than 25 years’ experience in the retail sector, has been appointed to direct the new practice. Prior to joining Axsium Group, Mr. Shepperd co-founded ShopperTrak, the world’s number one provider of retail traffic counting solutions now utilized by 200 of the world’s largest retailers. Most recently, Mr. Shepperd was vice president of the U.S. retail division of Wincor Nixdorf International.
Under Mr. Shepperd’s guidance, the new Global Retail Practice will focus Axsium’s extensive retail business experience and unmatched application knowledge to help retailers successfully design, select and implement leading-edge WFM solutions.
“Axsium has a tremendous roster of talented consultants with deep retail knowledge and the best practices in Workforce Management,” Mr. Shepperd said. “My charter is to expand and formalize our Global Retail Practice and to offer value added services to our clients from pre vendor solution design, to implementation and post install maintenance and support. As we have in the past, we will continue to provide our clients with a team of experts who understand and have real world, retail Workforce Management experience.” Shepperd says.
In 2008, Axsium extended its record of growth with the addition of such industry leading retailers as Borders, Costco, Taco Bell, Universal Studios and Loblaw Companies Ltd. to its client base. Additionally, Axsium Group was named to Profit Magazine’s Hot 50 fastest growing private companies for the second year in a row.
Axsium Group’s new Global Retail Practice will continue to manage and lead projects from all of the Workforce Management sector’s leading vendors, including Kronos, RedPrairie and Infor.
“Our mission is to ensure that our joint clients realize the maximum return and benefit from their investment in their WFM solution,” said Mr. Shepperd.
