The sheer immediacy and accuracy of the system – allows for the use of shift & working time arrangements, never previously thought possible. Organisations can now blend the employee’s Working Time needs with vital organisational processes. VisionTime Schedules ensures that bureaucracy associated with rostering can be streamlined almost beyond recognition.
VisionTime Schedules will assist with:
- Reducing Absenteeism
- Retention and attracting Staff
- Supervisor and Staff Morale
- Reducing overheads
VisionTime Schedules using the latest Microsoft.net and web technology. The system can thus sit on a server anywhere and can be accessed from anywhere via browsers over the intranet or web.
Visiontime Schedules is designed to replace much of the clerical work associated with creation of Time Schedules or Rosters. The user or supervisor decides what Roster or Schedules are required the system allows him/her to input/delete employees, create rosters, modify rosters and run staffing sheets. the system allows the input of as many sections, departments, job titles, employee types and cost centres as necessary. Old rosters/schedules are stored for use again either in entirety or partially. Individual days can be buffered and inserted in the new rosters.
Having set up the rosters, the user can also maintain them during the actual working week by inputting corrections (which are referred to as incidents) and also absence types as required. Once maintained in this way, at the end of the week in question the roster can now act as clean file to be sent electronically to Payroll. VisionTime Schedules can also link to a Personnel Software systems to provide further analysis. Ask for more details
Visiontime Schedules can avoid problems associated with manual systems. For example these are the types of problems associated with manual systems:
- the number of people handling many pieces of paper create multiple errors
- all entries are original - so for, say, next week it has to be done all over again
- manual system provide very little sense of central control - so one manager is not quite sure what is happening in another section - or maybe does not know easily who can be available from another section; equally, very senior management are in the dark - and even staff have issues with the manual approach.
Why is it good to have an electronic rostering or staff scheduling system?
A question we often ask people is - in today’s modern working environment, would you, handle your accounts and invoicing manually ?
“Of course not” is the answer that we invariably get.
Meanwhile, the management of working time and schedules - is a subject which connects directly to an organisation’s biggest overhead i.e. pay. Why is then, that many organisations still operate either on a manual or a part manual basis? Indeed, even where a system is used, it can often be so bottlenecked as to resemble a manual system.
This is why an electronic rostering or staff scheduling system is becoming such an essesntial need where organisations are concerned to have the right staff complement available at an appropriate cost.
