PRLog - Feb. 2, 2011 - Responding to scheduling managers’ growing demands for a scheduling software that can align with employee retention strategies, ensure reduced labor costs with zero over-time and address unique shift scheduling needs, Kappix has released a new version of DRoster Employee Scheduling Software.
Employee Scheduling Software DRoster by Kappix
Among its many useful features, DRoster - http://www.kappix.com - now includes the only scheduling rules validation system that guarantees complete shift coverage without overloading employees. Using the validation tool, scheduling managers can build rules that all schedules must conform to certain time and assignment constraints. DRoster alerts managers of any shift that does not comply with a rule-set.
For instance, a manager can decide that to make sure that no employee works more than a maximum number of hours for a defined period thus preventing worker overload and costly over-time pay. A supervisor can also ensure that an employee has enough time off between assignments and use the validation system to validate all schedules against that rule. These are just a few of the constraints available to scheduling managers.
Besides its ease of use, DRoster’s new validation system benefits both employees and the companies they work for. Employers can easily take into account their employees’ needs for more rest time, time off, break times, and overall workload without compromising a smoothly run 24/7 schedule. As a result, employee grievances about their work schedules literally vanish and they feel happier in their work environment.
The benefit to companies is marked with higher employee retention thus lowering the direct and indirect costs incurred with employee turnover. Proper management of over-time with DRoster’s new validation tool also reduces labor costs significantly.
With close to a third of all U.S. full-time wage and salary workers working outside of the traditional 9-to-5 work schedule and a renewed interest in employee retention, DRoster Employee Scheduling Software offers businesses and organizations a complete set of solutions designed to make their scheduling tasks easier, effective and compliant with their company’s and industry’s best practices.
