Forecasting and budgeting tools are powerful for businesses looking to strengthen their edge in the recovering economy
Livonia, Michigan (PRWEB) March 12, 2014
Attendance on Demand announces the release of a white paper on forecasting and budgeting tools for time and attendance. For retail, hospitality and healthcare employers, it means optimizing employee scheduling with forecasting and budgeting tools. To stay profitable, employers need to ensure efficient, effective scheduling of workers, striking an ideal balance between overstaffing (essentially paying for unneeded labor from workers) and understaffing (limiting productivity and service with too few staff).
Forecasting and budgeting tools help optimize scheduling through the use of labor ratios. A labor ratio is a custom ratio based on your business needs, such as nurse-to-patient or housekeeping-staff-to-guest-occupancy. Once that ratio has been computed, managers use it to schedule employees efficiently.
Forecasting and budgeting tools offer several benefits to organizations:
- Efficient employee scheduling
- Labor budget targeting
- Criteria comparison
- Multiple location scheduling
- Employee labor tracking
“Forecasting and budgeting tools are powerful for businesses looking to strengthen their edge in the recovering economy,” said Beth Baerman, Director of Corporate Communication at Attendance on Demand.
