When a business is looking to reduce costs one resource that is easy to over look is time. Being invisible makes time difficult to see. Every moment of an employee’s day is cost. Good Workforce Management Software makes the most of the investment made in employees’ working time.
Research estimates that the implementation of Workforce Management Software can save on average as much as €2,000 per employee per year for the company implementing it. With time management software in place efficiency and profitability can both be substantially increased.
Financial resources, along with other physical resources, such as property, employees and other assets often fall to the forefront of a businesses focus when costs need to be cut. This happens at the expense of taking time management into consideration.
Workforce Management Software allows business to focus on other aspects of their business without having to worry that profits are being drained by poorly managed scheduling. The resources of the most important management staff can be redirected to other pressing business matters.
Businesses particularly susceptible to losses through scheduling mismanagement are ones that operate using a flexi-time schedule. It can be time consuming and complicated to organise irregular schedules. Things can be made even more difficult through having to comply with health and safety regulations as well as employee work regulations.
The software incorporates functions to deal with flexi-time and complies with all employee and health regulations. Sudden and unexpected changes to a schedule can have a negative impact on a companies budget.
Workforce Management Software can warn users when a subsequent employee schedule change will have an impact on a pre defined budget. It also allows users to forecast scheduling conflicts by running the schedule far in advance and simulating the effect of large fluctuations.
Automating employee scheduling tasks with Advance Systems’ time management software minimises operating costs while allowing optimal allocation of employee resources within a business.
