Cloud-based applications like our Labor Cost Management module are transforming how work is planned and operationalized. We give you the built-in business intelligence and historical information to make better decisions, faster so that your bottom line profitability grows – not your labor costs and overtime expenses.
Our powerful software makes it simple for you to focus on making shifts profitable.
Our software alerts you to all conflicts and overtime; and provides less costly alternatives.
We deliver insights via an integrated scheduling, budgeting, and dashboard solution.
Half the challenge of managing labor costs is getting the right schedule, cost, budget, and revenue data compiled in one place with a robust reporting, alerting, and exception tracking dashboard. Our Labor Cost Manager was designed from the bottom-up as an integrated solution so that you can focus on maximizing your margins and minimize unnecessary labor costs.
Accurate forecasting can go a long way toward effectively managing your labor costs. The Orbital Shift labor cost management solution allows you to optimize labor costs and hours allocated by employee, position, or department in real time – ahead of time.
Our Smart Scheduler provides detailed visibility into expected labor hours by company, project, location, position, and department for every time and shift. This information can be transformed into a powerful budgeting and decision making tool when combined with payroll cost, revenue, and gross margin data. Integrated scheduling and labor cost management means better financial results!
Planning, budgeting, and scheduling shifts in a fast-paced environment can be perilous when last-second changes are made with incomplete information. Our Labor Cost Manager module gives you the alerts and flags that help prevent changes that will result in conflicts, double-booking, and unnecessary overtime costs.
Most unnecessary overtime and overstaffing situations can be avoided – we give you instant visibility and alerts to notify you and suggest corrective action when a schedule change will result in unnecessary overtime or overstaffing costs.
Learning from the past and informing how to improve future operating results becomes automatic with our labor cost management software. Simply put, better information leads to smarter schedules which generate more profitable outcomes.
Sometimes the differences between a profitable shift and a money loser aren’t obvious. We provide the drill-down details for things like budgeted cost as a percent of budgeted revenue, actual overtime rates applied to actual overtime hours, and employee shadow hours across all shifts, positions, and locations.
Managers can plan employee work schedules to achieve the right mix of employees, positions, locations, and shifts to balance capacity and profitability considerations. Last second schedule changes can be made with full visibility into getting the most qualified employees to cover shift replacements at the lowest cost.
Let’s face it, sometimes getting a schedule update out in response to changing conditions can be frantic – you will need to see the precise information on conflicts, over/under hours, and overtime costs in an instant. Our “at a glance” feature does just that – gives you the right information, right when you need it.
Some employees have the experience and training to wear many hats. Often, they are scheduled to work shifts in other departments or locations – or, they are working different positions in different shifts or locations. Our Labor Cost Manager Dashboard displays all shadow position information so that your schedule and budget choices are informed by complete information.
We have designed our Labor Cost Management Dashboard to help you make smarter decisions quickly. By modeling various alternative staff scheduling scenarios you can determine the right combination of people, skills, and costs to ensure profitability and resource effectiveness.
While the pace may be fast and decisions must be made quickly, our Dashboard gives you the power of choice. All open shift positions will provide you with all the available, qualified employees along with the data regarding hours scheduled, overtime cost, and shadow schedule information. This contextual information enables you to make the best choice to fill the open shift.
While full visibility into scheduling and budget information often paints a complete picture, sometimes getting the right people into the right shifts requires a collaborative effort. Our Labor Manager module enables you to communicate shift specific or general information and/or text message or email collaboration with employees affected so that you get the schedule right.
Preparing and delivering performance reviews for shift workers can be time consuming and stressful if you need to research and document information relevant to a meaningful conversation with each employee. Our Labor Manager Dashboard provides information on hours and number of shifts scheduled, missed shifts, overtime worked, and early/late clock-in. As a result, review discussions are more productive and preparing for them is less time consuming.
Many companies have large and/or complex organizations with numerous legal entities, locations, departments and divisions. We have you covered! Our Labor Manager Dashboard module makes it easy to see all the relevant information in data views that help inform the best decision. You can configure the system and data views to deliver the right standard and ad hoc information you need.
