Scheduling a multifaceted workforce can be time-consuming, error-prone, and just plain frustrating. And even with the best efforts, unavoidable mistakes lower productivity, increase costs, and put you at risk of litigation and fines. Enter Kronos Workforce Scheduler™ – your go-to tool for creating cost-effective, compliant schedules every time.
Leave the guesswork behind. Workforce Scheduler deploys sophisticated optimization algorithms that automatically converge on the best-fit schedule that meets the needs of your business as well as your employees. No more overstaffing. No more understaffing. And no more expenses associated with a schedule that doesn’t meet your business needs.
Keep employee morale high and create a more engaged workforce with advanced self-service capabilities such as shift swapping, selecting shift preferences and availability, viewing schedules on mobile phones, and even self-scheduling in a familiar calendar view. And with SMS Quick Fill™, the qualified employees you need to fill a shift opening are only a text message away.
Automated features enable managers to plan and execute employee schedules that comply with country-specific legislation, collective agreements, and employee contracts. Define a minimum or maximum number of hours for employees to work in an extended period of time. And stay on top of state and federal fatigue and schedule laws through the HR and Payroll Answerforce™ service that puts key compliance information at your fingertips.
Created a schedule with too many employees when there's not enough demand? It'll cost you. Someone called in sick and you need to call in a high-paid replacement? That's going to cost you, too. And these costs add up, compromising your bottom line. Workforce Scheduler helps eliminate these costly errors.
