Key questions in brick-and-mortar retail?
Together we find the right answers.
How many visitors leave my store as paying customers? What is my revenue potential as a result of below-average conversion rates?
What is my revenue effectiveness over the course of the day when looking at revenue per visitor?
What is my quality of service, depending on visitors per workforce in use?

But why just now?
Why together with Optimes?
Even before Covid-19, profitability was one of the biggest challenges in brick-and-mortar retail. Your workforce is your most valuable asset and has a great leverage on it. With our core competence, together we unlock this often underestimated potential and win multiple times. This is even more important with the increasing importance of online retail.
Biggest challenge: Profitability
Profitability as one of the biggest challenges in brick-and-mortar retail*
* according to interviews with retailers (food and non-food)
Underestimated potential: Use of workforce
Better use of workforce as an often underestimated potential with high leverage on costs* and revenue
* according to surveys, workforce costs account mostly between 25 and 50% of total costs
Unlocking potential together and win multiple times?
Our core competencies are the planning, steering and optimization of complex and workforce-intense operational processes. We bring a broad experience from the airport environment. For more than 10 years, we have been active at Zurich Airport as well as internationally at other airports on 5 continents - also in management positions.

We are driven by a passion to continuously optimize and together maximize customer value. Partners and other organizations support us in this.
Value-creating with key figures in performance reports
Optimes has added real value for us. With key figures such as the realized revenue per working hour invested, we were able to react more quickly to the drop in guest numbers. In the context of the second wave (Covid-19), our revenue at Kraftwerk Café & Restaurant collapsed to half in just a few weeks. With Optimes, we are also constantly looking into new rosters for our service workforce in order to cover the workload that occurs as good as possible. My team and I are very much looking forward to working together in the future.
