Scheduling the right employees for the right job at the right time is always a question of taking many different elements into account to ensure the best use of all the company’s resources.
ProForecast will make the task less complicated and time-consuming by visualising manning needs and/or budgets in your planning view – whether your employee scheduling takes place in ProRoster or ProSchedule.
OVERVIEW OF PLAN VERSUS PAYROLL BUDGET
With this module, you can create and edit payroll budgets for your organisation and easily visualise the budgetary impact of a plan – and simulate alternatives – before publishing the plan. This makes it clear to the planner whether the plan is in line with the payroll budget.
DEFINE ACTUAL MANNING NEEDS
Similarly, you can define the need for manpower hour by hour during the day.
By comparing with the available employees, you can determine if you are over- or understaffed so you can schedule your workforce accordingly.
APPROVAL – ALSO OF CHANGES
You can also define an approval process for a planning budget. This ensures that even changes made subsequently will have to be approved by a defined approver. This could be e.g. a raise of the payroll budget on certain days.
BUDGET OVERVIEW FOR TOP MANAGEMENT
To support better follow-up, management can get access to overall financial views.
The overviews enable managers to drill down in various groups to see a graphical comparison of budget numbers versus actual planned utilisation of employees as well as the actual employee registrations.
BETTER OVERVIEW AND PLANNING EFFICIENCY
ProForecast makes the planning task a lot easier and more accurate to the benefit of your company by for instance:
- Ensuring enough employees to finish all orders or service all customers
- Offering an overview of variable personnel costs to easily adapt them to payroll budgets – and thus save money
- Enabling planning well in time of seasonal fluctuations, allowing for requested leave or calling in extra personnel as needed
