What is Workforce Management Software?

Workforce Management Software (WFMS) is an interactive computer program which allows the productivity of your employee workforce to be instantly available to your administrative and managing workforce. The data collected through each employee’s simple interaction with the software allows administrative departments to generate a myriad of reports which management then uses to optimize the productivity of the business.
On a micro level the software quantifies the amount and types of labor needed to accomplish particular jobs. Focus can be analyzed on hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, or yearly basis. The instant visibility of employee performance that becomes available allows a matching of skills to tasks.
On a macro level workforce management software can be used to analyze performance among geographic locations. WFMS allows comparisons of productivity between Eugene, Oregon and Somerville, Massachusetts, or Florence, Italy, Dallas, Texas, and Munich, Germany. Performance analysis is available between every location your business exists.
The data reports that can be generated by your administrative team can then be analyzed by management for on-time performance and if needed, disciplinary action, scheduling, and employee leave management.
A short list of analytic surmises available include
- Scheduling
- Leave Management
- Absence and Discipline
- Timekeeping
 -Work Order Scheduling
- Product-Specific Cost Analysis
WFMS can be accessed remotely for telecommuters. Each administrative user or department can customize tables, tabs and fields, create user groups, and promote employee self-service. Businesses can also integrate with service groups such as human resources, payroll, and maintenance.
Workforce Management Software simplifies workforce management on a demand-orientated level.
