Our shift patterns catalogue give businesses access to the knowledge expertise of experienced workforce managers, without the expense of hiring consultants.
London, UK (PRWEB) October 13, 2009
Intellicate has announced the launch of a new online shift patterns catalogue which will enable businesses to provide the latest flexible working solutions to achieve their management goals. Available in Microsoft® Excel (versions 2003 and later) these professionally designed shift patterns can be incorporated into effective resource management strategies and HR working hours policies. The shift pattern designs are available online at http://www.shiftpatterncentral.com priced from $39.
"Companies are constantly looking to adopt new ways of working, enabling them to compete more effectively," said Tim Mills, COO of Intellicate. "Our shift patterns catalogue give businesses access to the knowledge expertise of experienced workforce managers, without the expense of hiring consultants."
The shift patterns are designed by a team with over 20 years experience in workforce management, and have been validated by computer simulation for specific business operations. The shift patterns display clear graphical and detailed information about staff supply, working hours, types of shifts, day-off ratios and fatigue and risk impact upon staff.
Intellicate hope that their new online catalogue of shift patterns will allow management and HR teams to bring workforce ideas to the table without budget constraints. "More and more businesses are relying on in-house talent working with office software that they are familiar with, especially Microsoft® Excel." said Tim Mills. "Giving these managers a wide range of shift patterns with high specification content saves time and provides the solutions and ideas they need."
Designing shift patterns is complex and in many cases counter-intuitive. Managers can waste valuable time on shift patterns that are inefficient or practically unworkable, and that sometimes generate unintended consequences when applied. Using ShiftPatternCentral' shift patterns in the early stages can save up to 60% of overall project costs.
Customers have 24-hour, immediate access to ShiftPatternCentral's catalogue, where they can search, purchase and download shift patterns in a matter of minutes. Customers can edit the shift patterns, using Microsoft® Excel editing tools, to assess the impact of changes including days-off pattern and shift duration. "We use our own in-house "black-box" technology to process thousands of possible sequences to find solutions. All our shift patterns are tested using computer scheduling software so our customers can focus on the solutions available without the tedious processes," said Tim Mills.
For business managers and HR professionals that need workforce ideas, proven and tested to well defined and specified criteria, ShiftPatternCentral continues to grow its database of shift patterns that are project ready for a wide range of business environments. Priced for individual download from $39 to $135 and bundles or series on CD from $135 to $595, these shift patterns can be purchased and downloaded at http://www.shiftpatterncentral.com .
