Advanced Volunteering is another unique capability that supports our customer’s need to manage changing production schedules with the appropriate labor compliment all the time.
Madison, WI (PRWEB) May 15, 2011
ScheduleSoft today announced the addition of Advanced Volunteering to its market-leading workforce scheduling software for manufacturers. The new feature further enhances the company’s unique schedule optimization capabilities which allow facilities to consistently maintain the highest level of production efficiency, while also providing all classifications of employees greater input into their work schedules. The Advanced Volunteering feature is of particular benefit to organizations where flexible schedules are common and employees need to be able to easily and accurately indicate availability. Employees can now use the ScheduleSoft Employee Self-Service Kiosk to indicate preferred shifts, jobs or departments as well as volunteer in advance to come in early or stay late for a shift. ScheduleSoft then enables schedulers to ensure optimal labor assignment efficiency by identifying scheduling deficiencies and filling the gaps based on complex labor rules, employee availability and qualifications, seniority, overtime allowances and employee preferences.
“Many organizations are increasingly using temporary or contingent workers and are looking for ways to make traditional part-time and full-time employees fit a more flexible workforce model,” said Gregory Flessas, ScheduleSoft CEO. “Advanced Volunteering is another unique capability that supports our customer’s need to manage changing production schedules with the appropriate labor compliment all the time. In addition, the Advanced Volunteering feature puts significantly more control in the hands of employees who can now plan their schedules in advance and better plan their non-work lives.”
ScheduleSoft also recently announced the release of Fractional Demands which supports splitting an employee’s work across multiple jobs providing the ability to leverage shared resources. For the past 14 years, ScheduleSoft has been offering unique functionality that provides competitive differentiation for its manufacturing customers and any organization that has multiple shifts and employee types as well as complex scheduling requirements.
