Softworks gives five reasons now is a good time to upgrade your workforce management technology.

For many logistics companies, the new realities of Covid-19 and Brexit have highlighted more than ever the need for dynamic leadership. They need to be able to respond quickly and decisively to resolve the plethora of problems being thrown at them every day. However, many are finding the amount of time they have available for their teams is being reduced because they’re spending hours on admin related to employee management.

A reliance on spreadsheets or paper-based processes means managers can be spending a significant percentage of their time on rostering, timesheet approvals or queries related to time and attendance and missing valuable time away from the “shop floor”. The absence of an automated employee management system also affects their ability to plan and forecast because they don’t have easy access to reliable, historic workforce data.

Cloud-based Workforce Management Software automates management of Employee Time and Attendance, Scheduling/Rostering, Absence Management, Project Tracking, HR, Skills and Flexible Working allowing companies to eliminate unnecessary admin, save time and improve responsiveness – all while promoting a safe and positive environment for employees.

Workforce Management Software helps logistics companies with:

1. Employee health & safety

2. Workforce planning and optimisation

3. Managing new ways of working

4. Attracting and retaining employees

5. Forecasting and planning for the future
