Warner’s Retail Overview

Warner’s Retail is an independently owned group of food stores, formerly known as Warner’s Budgens. Guy Warner has been running stores for over 15 years. The new supermarket in Upton-upon-Severn opened in May 2022.


Before S4labour the team were using spread sheets and paper rotas which had an impact time, where managers could be using the time spent elsewhere. The team were spending far too much time chasing people for documents and rotas.

Historically, there where times where Guy would get to the end of the month and be a little shocked with how much they had spent on labour costs.

“As a boss, you love an IT solution that nobody talks about, not because its not there, it’s just because it works. I can honestly say since its gone in I’ve not heard about it, which means it’s working.”

Solution & Benefits

Warner’s Retail needed a solution that could not only save time and make rota writing easy, but save in labour costs as well.

Warner’s Retail moved over to S4labour in 2022. When asked about the move, Guy said, “to be honest, I’m not quite sure how we worked without it.”


Warner’s Retail are able to see a real time snapshot of true labour costs at any one moment. The time to administer it is a fraction of what it used to be prior to S4labour.

Labour is such a big cost within the industry, and as such you need to have a close eye on what you are spending.  Now, with real time visibility Guy has a clear view of what they are spending, with no shock at the end of the month.
