Helping retailers to drive sales performance and optimise their store operations since 2010
At StoreForce, we consider ourselves retailers first, and technology vendors second. We are extremely passionate about retail and helping our clients thrive.
StoreForce WFM+, Positive Sales Growth and
Consistent Brand Delivery
StoreForce story began over 10 years ago with our founders, Dave Loat and Chris Matichuk. With extensive backgrounds in retail as well as retail management consulting, they recognised the important need to provide an ‘All-in-One” solution for Specialty Retail. It is called “WFM+”, where the “+” represents a focus on positive sales growth and consistent delivery of the brand. This approach is entirely unique to StoreForce, and it is why the “+” also represents a foundational shift from the way traditional workforce management systems approach labor planning in Specialty Retail.
