London, United Kingdom (PRWEB) September 6, 2005
Intellicate, Ltd., a leading provider of employee scheduling and deployment software, today announced the release of their new IntelliRosterÂ® Lite and IntelliRosterÂ® Professional for Microsoft WindowsÂ® 2000/XP. This coincides with their recent partnership with Manaccom who have exclusive publishing rights for their software throughout Australasia.
Workforce scheduling has been a growing headache for business managers especially over the past two years following legislation and working directives designed to harmonize working practices and protect employee rights. Employee scheduling can be a complex business with managers either struggling with paper and pencil or faced with solutions that only corporate budgets can feed. Intellicate has released two products to help both.
IntelliRoster Lite delivers the small business or team manager with the ease of spreadsheet scheduling but without all the hassle of repetitive formatting and working out endless date and time formats. Monitoring and analysis tools provide the necessary features to produce good schedules and at a fraction of the time taken with paper pencil or traditional spreadsheet methods.
IntelliRoster Professional delivers even more power for the more demanding user at the corporate enterprise level. Designed for out of the box deployment, without the need for specialist IT support, the business or line manager can define and implement workforce strategy themselves. ÂIt can be difficult for a manager to acquire sophisticated scheduling skills, but we have now given them the tools to do thatÂ said Tim Mills Chief Operations Officer for Intellicate.
He said ÂMany people think about scheduling as an HR issue, when really it is about business strategy. So we just made sure we delivered a business solution that did more than just schedule the right numbersÂ.
Manaccom, which has cornered the market in Australia for fast moving consumer software, recently expanded into corporate sales. It hoped to generate around $5 million in sales revenue from the China operation in the first 12 months, claims James Mackay, Director of publishing at Manaccom. It expected the China initiative to be profitable within six months.
ÂWe canÂt go too much further in retail. If weÂre going to maintain double digit growth, we need to do it in ways that arenÂt conventional,Â he said. Products which could be popular in the Chinese market include IntelliRoster. He said that while it was expensive to establish an overseas operation, the sheer weight of numbers on the Asian continent makes the investment worth the risk.
