Workforce planning is a complex task with numerous and sometimes conflicting objectives needing to be addressed at the same time. Workforce optimisation software allows managers to have the foresight and flexibility to roster the most cost-effective employees, minimising overtime and agency usage, resulting in improved financial results.
The central objective of staff planning is to create schedules which ensure that you consistently have exactly the right number of people with the right skills in place in order to achieve your business objectives – never too many, never too few. At the same time, you must observe all relevant legislation, local agreements and the contracts of individual employees. Employee qualifications, personal working time preferences and availability must also be taken into account. Only be considering all these factors can you create efficient, workable schedules.
Employing a web-based, people-centric scheduling solution with robust demand and event driven data facilities and one-click roster publishing to multiple formats, delivers the results you need on time, every time, reducing the frustration and costs associated with traditional scheduling methods.
Our systems capabilities include time and attendance modules, core rostering, ‘on the day’ optimisation, employee self-service, one click automated scheduling, real-time data, integrated holiday and absence planning, and reporting, among many other features.
