Say Goodbye to Multiple Scheduling Providers
The flexibility they demand with the coverage you want—no matter how you schedule your workforce.
Proven Scheduling Solutions For Every Employee
Scheduling to Meet Ad Hoc, Flexible, or Consistent Coverage
- Create schedules, assign weekly schedules, or implement rotating shift patterns across multiple weeks
- Enable work patterns that distinguish between mandatory work times and periods when employees have flexibility
- Easily update schedules to meet one-time or ad hoc changes, whether planned or last minute
Scheduling to Meet Fixed Labor Demand
- Create schedule models that define the jobs that need to be performed in each shift and the headcount for each job
- Manage seasonal changes, maintenance periods, or situations that require variations in headcount and/or skills
- Dynamically verify current skills, certifications, and licenses before an employee is assigned to a shift
Scheduling to Meet Highly Variable Demand
- Leverage labor forecast data to optimize schedules for highly variable staffing needs, even at shorter intervals (e.g., 15 minutes)
- Schedule top talent during peak hours and pair them with less-experienced employees to accelerate training
- Align employee breaks with lulls in planned activities or customer volumes while remaining compliant
