Consider how much time HR staff spend responding to various requests such as finding out how many days of leave an employee has left or why they are missing an hour of pay. All of this time could be saved if that employee could bypass HR and access their employee information directly. This is just one of the additional features that come with implementing workforce management software from Advance Systems.
All employee data from the number of hours they worked to how many days leave they have left to any disciplinary matters are outstanding against them are stored centrally to be accessed by the employee and authorized members of staff.
Where organizations have numerous small offices located over a large area such as with health care service providers that need their staff to have local access, keeping HR, payroll and other scheduling staff centrally located is the most cost effective model. However, this makes it even more difficult to keep track of the hours worked by all those staff spread out across the district. Workforce management software stores employee data centrally over the web on a cloud based system so that employee data can be sent from remote locations.
When employees log into the workforce management software at their satellite offices that log in data is sent back to and stored in the central database. Those employees can then access their own data such as days leave and hours worked from their remote offices.
When those employees are on call or working outside of their offices they can log in from specially designed workforce management software apps that are compatible with all major mobile devices such as iPhone, BlackBerry or Android.
Overall, Advance Systems’ workforce management software saves on administration costs by deferring much of the scheduling and information gathering work to an automated system and to the staff themselves. The user interface of Advance Systems’ is intuitive and easy to use so staff don’t need to be trained to use it.
Using a system of clear, brightly colored icons that have obvious meanings creates an interface that is easy to navigate for computer users of all skill levels.
