Lanzadera, the startup accelerator created by Marina de Empresas, has chosen in its January call new companies capable of providing innovation in sectors in vogue such as the metaverse, blockchain, sustainability or artificial intelligence.
A clear endorsement to the consolidation of disruptive projects as Javier Jiménez, CEO of Lanzadera, says: “Innovation in the world of entrepreneurship is going very fast, driven by a digitalization that has also accelerated. This is reflected in the companies we have selected, which stand out for their ability to add value with their solutions”.
This added value is provided by ORQUEST automatic workforce management software, with which big players in the Retail and Restaurant sector optimize their labor force by achieving the optimal staff volume in stores and restaurants.
Lanzadera’s commitment to ORQUEST artificial intelligence and advanced analytics is, in the words of Alberto del Barrio, CEO and co-founder of the company, “the definitive support for the leadership consolidation of our software in the workforce management sector. We are very grateful and excited for this boost that will allow us to continue with our international expansion process”.
Thanks to AI, ORQUEST considers all the business variables in order to schedule precise working hours according to the employees’ work-life balance requirements, the forecast of customers’ demands and the pertinent labor legislation of each country.
In this way, inefficient staff coverage can be prevented and, in addition, employee satisfaction is increased by having a schedule adapted to their needs and with sufficient time in advance to be able to balance work and life.
This optimization of the business’ operational efficiency allows to provide an excellent personalized customer service and, therefore, to improve the productivity and performance of the points of sale without incurring in an increase of labor costs.
ORQUEST saves more than 90% of the time spent on scheduling, reducing labor costs by up to 5% and increasing annual sales figures by up to 8%.
These impact data plus the cutting edge AI models and scheduling engine of our software are enough reasons for Lanzadera to include ORQUEST in the Scale Up phase of its program for successful scaleups with a tested and profitable business model.
