After utilizing and testing its Hospitality software platform, Workforce-Velocity announces that enhancements to its workforce management system prove to streamline hospitality operations, provide lean overhead models and increase service ability. This enhancement specifically targets front and back of house operations, highlighting patent pending transaction based scheduling, productivity management and scheduling through IVR technology. In addition, Workforce-Velocity’s automated API integration with existing reservation and event management systems provides out-of-the-box functionality for full workforce visibility. Through a single data entry point of projected daily business volume, Workforce-Velocity uses back-end matrices to analyze data using mathematical algorithms to build intelligent hourly schedules based on least labor hours needed. Transaction based schedules created from historical data, allow for fluctuations in bookings, trends and reservations while significantly lowering total costs per occupied room or cover. These schedules maximize revPar and reduce wasted labor through hourly FTE control. Additionally, built-in telephone and text communication automates bi-directional employee communication and employee scheduling saving time and management expense.
