Gartner Market Guide defines a WFM vendor as “a vendor that usually addresses the needs of multiple industries”. The guide also provides recommendations for “CIOs seeking workforce management applications to support retail digital transformation and innovation”:
- “Build and connect the organization’s WFM strategy with HCM, digital workplace and other critical application strategies in order to link investment in WFM to broader organizational initiatives”.
- Identify and invest in transformational capabilities that have the potential for the greatest positive impact on both costs and frontline experiences, such as AI-based labor forecasting to increase scheduling productivity and accuracy”.

The Market Guide “defines a market and explains what clients can expect it to do in the short term. With the focus on early, more chaotic markets, a Market Guide does not rate or position vendors within the market, but rather more commonly outlines attributes of representative vendors that are providing offerings in the market to give further insight into the market itself”.
