Slow and inaccurate scheduling processes can make it difficult to schedule a diverse workforce — and can result in decreased productivity, wasted labour expense, and risk of noncompliance. Workforce Dimensions™ Scheduling is the automated solution you’ve been waiting for to create best-fit schedules.
Shifting market conditions, location-specific needs, and business objectives can all impact customer demand and how labour should be aligned. By improving forecast accuracy, you can create more effective schedules for your employees while adapting to customer demand. Forecasting, powered by the advanced artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities of AIMEE™, improves volume forecasting by analysing special events, pooling data across the organisation, and learning patterns over time.
Powered by the AI capabilities of AIMEE, forecasting in Workforce Dimensions is self-learning, extensible, and data efficient. Pooling data across all your locations, AIMEE provides a forecasting solution that is a paradigm shift from ‘every store location is an island view’ and improves scheduling accuracy by as much as 20 percent. No matter your business, forecasting is flexible for different types of scheduling needs, allowing you to more accurately predict both high- volume and low- volume units so you can align labour to demand.
Keep employee morale high and create a more engaged workforce with a single point of access for all shift, holiday, and time-off information. Employees can view schedules for the week, month, or year — and can easily access detailed daily shift information and make time off and other scheduling requests right from the calendar. Additional capabilities include the ability to select shift preferences and view schedules on a mobile phone.
The automated scheduling capabilities of Workforce Dimensions help managers plan and execute employee schedules that comply with country-specific legislation, collective agreements, and employee contracts. Quick actions facilitate easy and efficient schedule edits if needed. And valuable supporting metrics such as coverage or target hours is available right in the schedule view.
Creating schedules that include too many employees when demand is low can be costly. Also costly? Filling absences with expensive replacement labor. All of it can negatively affect your bottom line. Workforce Dimensions Scheduling helps you tackle these challenges head on.
