Some companies that use StaffRoster
StaffRoster is a full web software suite composed by six modules: StaffRoster Core, Retail Manager, Activity Manager, Port Terminal Manager, SMS & Voice Call, Business Integration. The whole suite is projected to provide a complete and powerful set of features to manage the workforce in a company.
Companies, using StaffRoster, will be able to schedule shifts and activity tasks according to their needs and their workforce. The process starts from the input of workload, staff details, contracts, roster rules and activity task details, to provide shift planning, shift schedule and activity planning. By the activity planning we can also build the workload forecasting. Once StaffRoster is correctly configured, the whole process becomes automatic and lets users get schedules, reports and statistic data easily. Every action is tracked and stored for subsequent using of historical information.
StaffRoster Core is a workforce management system based on the technology. StaffRoster Core is the base StaffRoster module that provides fundamental features to schedule.read more
By acquiring business process information, the software allows medium and long-term human resources planning. In the short term, the software allows the management of absences (sicknesses, vacations, leave, etc.) by identifying possible replacements in real time and suggesting corrections to shift planning in order to solve the actual problem. The division coordinator or person responsible for shift scheduling has access to an advanced tool that will save him a great deal of time in building the shift schedules and avoiding disputes with staff.
Retail Manager module is based on the technology and it’s been mainly projected to schedule retail staff.
Inputs for the module are the company workforce with all the details about company positions, employee abilities and employee contracts, the workload and, eventually, shifts used in the company. Then user will define ruler types. The wasp engine uses ruler types (and/or existing shifts) workload and capabilities identified from staff details, to propose the schedule that ensures the best possible workload (workforce requirements) matching staff skills and contracts.
Activity Manager module starts from the company’s need to distribute jobs and working tasks among all employees who have a roster schedule compatible with the activities to be allocated. An activity plan has to be built according to employee skills, contracts and activities characteristics.
In the advanced mode usage Activity Manager module become a powerful planning system based on technology. The system, in this case, uses a different approach. It does not process planning activities starting from the roster schedule, as for the Activity Planner module, but are the activities which drive shifts generation and planning process. In this case, we say that the approach is activity driven and it is necessary where a good activities planning is the real keystone for the company operation.
Port Terminal Manager module is the verticalization of StaffRoster to the port world especially for companies operating in container marine terminal.
In a manine terminal shifts and activity scheduling depends on the schedule of ships, as well as the infrastructure of the terminal itself available to staff. The module is therefore designed for those who manage and plans the activities of the terminal and provides a number of specific features, as well as an operational dashboard that makes it quick and easy to modify staff and resources allocation.
SMS & Voice Call module provides the capability to interface a provider for sending SMS.
In addition, the system incorporates an auto responder to communicate the schedule to those employees unreachable through different channels from the classic telephone.
The standard integration StaffRoster-Time Attendance Software provides a number of features designed to implement the more correct workflow for the integrated workforce management. Let’s see the three main areas of integration.
Master data synchronization The staff registry master system is the Time Attendance Software, therefore information relating to employees are configured in that system and the integration flow will ensure StaffRoster alignement.
Schedules synchronization For the shift schedules the master system is obviously StaffRoster that aligns the Software Attendance at configurable intervals. Any modification which changes the “published” schedule is returned to the time attendance system when the integration flow is activated.
Absence Management Absence management is critical to the integrated system. The standard integration flow StaffRoster – Time Attendance Software provides for the entering of absences can be made in both software. The absence enteres in the Time Attendance Software are instantly reflected in StaffRoster as authorized absence. Entering the absence in StaffRoster creates a request from StaffRoster to the attendance Software to check if the absence can be create for that employe. For example, the check may involve residues available that, like other administrative rules, reside in the Time Attendance Software.
Time card anomalies management Through the synchronization of clocking in and so-called “calculated periods”, that is counts made by the Time Attendance Software it is possible with StaffRoster to resolve anomalies. In this way the closure of the time card can be performed with StaffRoster.
Technology The integration is achieved through the interface of the two systems using a set of web services REST. This choice of technology allowed us to decouple the data bases of the two software with obvious benefits of simplicity and safety while ensuring an effective real-time interaction.
