Historically, employee scheduling software has been limited to home-grown spreadsheets developed years ago, or off the shelf products that do not fit the current technology landscape, nor do they adapt to current employees’ needs. EmLogis’ now offers state-of-the-art online employee scheduling system is a breath of fresh air in a field of has-been applications.
For many employers, the software scheduling solution of choice is a spreadsheet powered by software pre-installed in the computers the companies distribute to their employees. It is more a choice of convenience than being the best tool for the job. Once these spreadsheets are created, they are rarely revised and updated, which can lead to extreme inefficiencies in the resulting schedules.
Those that invest in ordinary off-the-shelf scheduling software may have a slight advantage over using spreadsheets, but they are still hampered in many ways, including communication amongst supervisors and interaction with scheduled employees. Many of these application packages are still sold to be used on single computers with the resulting schedules only distributed by printed copy.
Online staff scheduling is the natural evolution for all employee scheduling requirements from the simplest to the most complex.
“Today’s society is online, not buried in a standalone application or stuck on a piece of paper taped to a supervisor’s door,” says Chris Kiklas, Vice President of Services at EmLogis. “By taking scheduling off of the desktop and into the cloud, we are able to leverage a significantly larger resource pool and understand usage patterns to deliver a far superior scheduling package.”
And it isn’t just about the schedules themselves, Kiklas continues, “employees expect interaction and communication wherever they are be it online, through email, through their social networks, on their tablets or on their phones. Engaging with employees where they are creates a better bond between employer and employee and increases the level of satisfaction of both parties.”
Delivering its scheduling solution online as SaaS (Software as a Service), EmLogis is able to continuously improve their product with new features and respond to customers’ requests with speed and ease. Due to the web based approach and industry standard interfaces, this easy to use employee scheduling system can be configured and set up to run even in complex environments in a very short period of time.
“We know that employee scheduling online to some companies may seem like something out of reach in terms of complexity and cost,“ says Les Amidei, EmLogis’ CEO, “but we believe that if they can give us 30 days, we can change their minds. Not only can they be up and running in no time, after a full month of use, they will never want to switch back to the old ways of scheduling again.”
