Schedule the Right Employee in the Right Place at the Right Time
Workforce scheduling is a time-consuming, error-prone, and frustrating task. Matching employee availability, skill sets, and preferences with fluctuating business demand is necessary to maximize productivity and profits.
Scheduling a diverse workforce using spreadsheets and semi-automated systems often results in overstaffed shifts, shorthanded rushes, and suboptimal performance. With our scheduling application, you can build, fill, manage, and measure schedules that enable you to meet output and service level goals without overspending your labor budget.

Manage Labor Spending with Effective Scheduling
Keep labor costs under control without compromising performance. Our Scheduling application makes it easy to build schedules that align staff coverage with anticipated demand, imported from other business systems. This minimizes overstaffing, reliance on contract workers, and costly overtime pay. Automated alerts notify you when schedules exceed budget limits so you can make appropriate adjustments.
Build Efficient Schedules that Support Compliance
Once the schedule is built, you may fill open shifts to maximize productivity and minimize compliance risk. The system automatically categorizes employees based on criteria such as, availability, preferences, skills, certifications, company policies, union rules, and state and federal labor laws.
An intuitive interface allows you to perform scheduling tasks with remarkable speed and ease. Drag and drop to assign shifts, split or swap shifts with a single click, or select multiple shifts to edit side-by-side. The system alerts you when scheduling actions violate established rules, enabling you to make changes, while staying in compliance.
Get On-Demand Visibility into Workforce Schedules
The system lets employees view their schedules from a computer or an Apple®, Android™, or Windows® mobile device. Managers also have access to schedules from their computers or mobile devices, allowing them to keep tabs on staffing coverage from anywhere, at any time.
Measure Schedule Effectiveness
Scheduling reports makes it simple to measure the effectiveness of past schedules, making future scheduling more efficient. Coverage maps show unfilled shifts and budget reports identify areas of overspending. Preliminary and final schedules can be compared to see how many changes were required to effectively align staffing with budget and demand.
