How It Works: Advanced Scheduler for Managers
“With the WorkForce Suite and its usability, it’s really been easy for us to promote the idea of being a fan of the systems we use and the benefits they bring to employees.”
Reduce labor costs
Easily identify which employees are qualified for open positions and filter that information by cost and fitness for duty—allowing you to maximize your bottom line without compromising effectiveness or safety. When used in conjunction with the rest of the WorkForce Suite, Advanced Scheduler provides additional insights to help you reduce labor costs and learn how workforce scheduling impacts your business.
Streamline staffing fluctuations
As business demands change, WorkForce Advanced Scheduler can automatically adjust your staffing levels and shift patterns to match those fluctuations—all while fully accounting for critical factors such as union requirements and overtime costs. You can also set up position-specific labor standards and correlate those configurations with a business-volume forecast to ensure adequate staffing levels at all times.
Quickly fill open shifts
When unplanned absences or increased business volumes demand additional employees, WorkForce Advanced Scheduler staff scheduling software steps in to assist. Call-out lists are generated quickly, based on skills, costs, and fitness for duty. Complex union canvassing requirements can also be accommodated, including overtime based on seniority or other factors. Optional One-Touch Callout feature automatically connects with employees via their preferred contact method.
Enhance employee morale
Allow employees to enter work-hour preferences, which can then be automatically considered when schedules are created. WorkForce Advanced Scheduler’s software also lets employees exchange shifts with peers, giving them greater control over their own work hours and tightly aligning work/life balance preferences with organizational staffing needs. Managers can opt to review and approve agreed-upon swaps or merely receive notifications when they occur.
WorkForce Advanced Scheduler can also help your organization resolve an age-old issue—making sure that all of the ‘tribal knowledge’ accumulated by experienced workers gets passed on to the newer crowd. Pairing new hires with the right mix of top performers and company veterans can streamline the most important aspect of skills development: on-the-job training. This helps new employees get up to speed faster and increases productivity.
Deliver exceptional results
While important, your bottom line isn’t the only measurement of success. WorkForce Advanced Scheduler can help you schedule the most qualified candidates for any job and help you maximize workforce scheduling effectiveness for special projects, seasonal needs, or around-the-clock shift schedules. All of these goals can be addressed in each facet of workforce scheduling, from creating a new shift template to filling last-minute vacancies with ease.
