Selecting a Workforce Management System - New Guide

Posted by Mairead Walsh on Thu, Jun 20, 2013

Many organisations are replacing their stand-alone, often manual systems used to manage staff hours, schedules and working patterns with fully integrated software-driven workforce management solutions.

Modern Workforce Management systems assist organisations to more efficiently manage and optimise workforce planning, labour scheduling & modelling, facilitate flexible working options, respond to legislative compliance and best practice obligations, and manage planned and unplanned absences.

But with so many systems on the market, that are often poles apart in terms of costs and functionality, it can be difficult to navigate what does what. More and more, we are coming across organisations who have invested in systems, that don't actually fit with their requirements.  Think sledgehammer cracking a nut...

We offer advice and tips before you meet suppliers so you can be 100% confident that you ask the right questions and make the right choice for your organisation.
