Flexi pricing for flexible scheduling of your workers is about to get easier

Managing flexible workforces where there may be 300 people but only 40-50 may work at any one time across the week has constantly been an issue for cloud scheduling. Finally, the solution is here at the lowest cost, inactive users now only need to pay 20 cents per week from the 1st of July 2019.

Industries like security, retail, and hospitality have always had this issue of many people to choose from but only a portion of the employee database ever worked each week.

Improve your scheduling software with 2 easy features

Having kids that work in the hospitality industry it is easy to see how manual scheduling process are still today. After working more than 20 years in this industry I am not surprised when a modern company is discovered to be still using paper time sheets and notes for scheduling.

Every customer with a manual system has issues building, distributing and maintaining the schedule. Every person who has ever had to build, distribute and then maintain a weekly or monthly schedule knows exactly what I am talking about here.

Building and sharing the schedule – It is one thing to build the schedule, once built you can share the schedule with all employees. I have seen customers share the employee schedule on a notice board, in the lunch room, more progressive companies try using Facebook.

Maintaining the schedule – If your employees work the same hours each week doing the same work week in and week out then scheduling is very simple, copy this week into next week and away you go again. If your company is in retail or hospitality or health then schedules can change with a minutes notice. A restaurant may get busy 2 hours earlier than expected due to extra customers walking in off the street.  What ever the reason how do you manage many changes to the schedule every day? Some companies will change the schedule daily, reprint and stick back on the noticeboard. Can you imagine doing this every day?

Ways clever scheduling can help your business profit!

1/ Availability – Imagine if your employees could advise their availability in advance so when you went to build the schedule automatically employees who advised previously they were unavailable would not be available to schedule. (you can still over ride this feature if desperate for an employee to walk however the feature is designed to help both the employee and the scheduler.

2/ Shift Swap – One of the best features ever invented for many industries. If my daughter wants to swap a shift at her manual scheduling job she has to start contacting other staff to find one who will say yes they can work and take her shift, I can see the stress this puts on my daughter as she does not want to let her work down when something has come up including being sick. I cant imagine the stress this puts on a scheduler who’s job it is to replace a person who calls in sick, calling number after number until someone is found. What a waste of time? How much time would your staff save if employees managed the shift swap?

Employees can only swap with suitably skilled employees to replace them. What an awesome add on to shift swap!!

How late do your employees run every day?

Deputy has discovered with the use of Big Data that at least 30% of workers across Australia’s major cities run late for work every day. That is almost 1 in 3 workers running late every day.

What does this cost your business?

The only way Deputy could gather this data was by creating an electronic scheduling program that made for easy management of rosters where employees can sign in and out each shift electronically. We all know what happens when an employee is running late on time sheets and turns up at 8.10 when they are due to start at 8.00. The employee unless challenged will always write 8:00 as the starting time even through they are running late.

Going electronic with Deputy removes all of these issues where the employee can only sign in and out at the time they arrive and leave. Deputy can also take the GPS position of the employee if they sign in from their own phone.

Deputy had the opportunity to use what many today call Big Data. More than 400,000 employee shifts were used to create the data, giving statisticians more than enough information to confirm 30% to be an average nationally.

Industries worst impacted by lateness included Construction, Hospitality and Healthcare, while retail fared better than all three. Maybe retail employees are more afraid of losing their jobs?

The average late start time ranged from 8 minutes and 4 seconds to 9 minutes and 24 seconds. I wonder how the 60% of employees that always arrive on time feel about 40% of their workmates turning up late?

Ask Questions to get the most accurate answers when selecting an employee scheduling software for your business

I received this question recently…

I have already evaluated Deputy. According to my staff I am unable to run two rosters (one for Kitchen and one for Floor) in my restaurants without having two ipad time clock kiosks at each site. The alternative was to have the kitchen and floor rostering combined so that I can have just the one ipad kiosk on site. It is a strange restriction that your competitors have managed to avoid.

After speaking with the customer and getting a full understanding of the issue we discovered….That this was simply a misunderstanding as the software is more than capable of handling unlimited departments on a single iPad kiosk.

Deputy_Mobile_App

The most popular way for employees to sign in & out globally with Deputy scheduling software is to use existing smart devices. Most employees today either have an iPhone or an android phone, each employee can use their own phone, download the Deputy app and start signing in and signing out. Employees can also see their own schedule, apply for leave, or simply build in future availability so that the person completing the schedule is automatically notified of the employee’s intentions.
