They request open shifts that they are qualified for and managers can approve, or decline based on important information such as overtime and seniority.
- xPPD/HPPD scheduling is simple with a tool that automates the process and gives you immediate visibility to your staffing levels (under or over the target) given any census or anticipated census for all job types on your unit.
- A rules-based tool that provides managers with the ability to fill holes in the schedule quickly and fairly, meeting staffing level requirements. The AutoScheduler can create balanced schedules and includes rules for shift assignment that can be defined by employee availability and seniority.
- Certain organizations or departments often work as teams or pods and scheduling, tracking, and managing these groups can be very difficult with spreadsheets or outdated scheduling systems. TeamScheduler alleviates the difficulty and time required to schedule teams and streamlines the day-to-day adjustments.
