Employee scheduling software is an invaluable tool for human resource placement and shift staffing. Whether you are providing staff at one location or many, with one specific skill or many, employee scheduling software can help you keep track of everything, and do it in much less time. Many versions can also either link up with Quickbooks or generate payroll within the application.

Let's suppose, for instance, that you are in charge of staffing at a large hospital. There are many different locations within the building, and each needs a variety of staff: maintenance, orderlies, nurses, residents, etc. Employee scheduling software can make sure that no double-staffing occurs and that there are no shifts left uncovered.

If your business is client-based, scheduling software can match staff availability and skills with each client request. It not only saves time and frustration, but can also increase your revenue, since you are better able to fill requests and find appropriate employees, even with little notice. Cleaning crews, home care providers, repair services, and appraisers are just a few of the types of businesses that can benefit from automated scheduling.

Employee Scheduling Software Can Keep Your Books, Too

Many versions of scheduling software can also be used to generate your payroll. Invoicing, hourly logs and time reporting are automated, so there will be no more unbilled hours or missed assignments. With all the services it provides, scheduling software can save you both time and money.
