Learn What Makes Our Labor Planning Solution Tick
Quality employee scheduling starts with an accurate forecast. A poor forecast makes it impossible to anticipate demand, leaving managers in the dark to determine the most effective labor plan. Workforce Forecast Manager™ has accurate forecasting down to a science, allowing managers to see who they need and why. Here's how...
Labor Standards: Every job is different. You can import industry labor standards for specific tasks to align labor volume to anticipated demand. This strategic alignment gets you immediately headed down the road to improved productivity.
Forecast Algorithms Tailored to Your Needs: Managers can accurately predict demand down to 15-minute intervals. It's this kind of precision that reduces under- and over-staffing and keeps labor costs under control. Multiple algorithms are available depending on the amount of historical data available.
Current Week Reforecasting: The system can use recent Point-of-Sale (POS) data to determine and apply an up-to-date trend to reflect unexpected outside influences such as weather, local events, and competitive activity.
Adaptive Forecasting: When your location has over two years of historical data, you can use this feature to automatically select the best-fit algorithm from a group. The adaptive forecast takes into account departmental variations, irregular patterns, seasonal trends, and recurring seasonal special events from POS data. And it tunes itself based on recent historical data.
