Adding to its ever-expanding list of rankings aimed at small and medium-sized businesses looking for the best cloud-based solutions for their company, GetApp has updated its ranking of the top workforce management solutions.
The recently released Q1 2016 ranking of top workforce management solutions features When I Work Scheduling, Deputy, ShiftPlanning, Planday, and PARIM in the top five, respectively.
The workforce management ranking is calculated based upon five data points. The data points include security, integrations, user reviews, mobile app availability, and media presence. Each data point is worth 20 points for a potential overall score of 100.
Reviews are calculated using the number of reviews on GetApp and the app’s average rating. Integrations are calculated using the total number of app integrations listed on GetApp, while mobile calculations are done by pulling data from the App Store and Google Play about app availability. Media presence is calculated using the number of Facebook followers and Twitter fans that an app has. Finally, the security score is calculated from a vendor-completed security survey that’s based on the Cloud Security Alliance’s Self-Assessment Form.
When I Work Scheduling received the highest score with a 79 with an especially strong score for its iOS and Android apps. Deputy took second place with strong scores in security and integrations at 19 each. ShiftPlanning, Planday, and PARIM followed with scores of 70, 69, and 68, respectively, for a close race.
“It comes as no surprise that the top apps in workforce management– an area that sees employees moving all over– had strong mobile scores,” says James Thornton, Chief Editor at GetApp and AppStorm. “Mobile workforce management apps allow businesses to continually manage and optimize their organization on the go, through features such as flexible scheduling capabilities, GPS integration, and notifications of shift changes.”
