Keep your labor costs down and scheduling under control with an employee scheduling system.
The old-fashioned way of posting the shift schedule in the breakroom or even emailing a spreadsheet with the team schedule takes too long to manage, introduces the potential for errors and opens the door to miscommunication that can lead to dropped shifts, missed pay, fire drills, excessive overtime, compliance issues and frustrated employees and managers.
Perhaps it’s time to put away the whiteboard and close the spreadsheet. You just don’t need them anymore. Not when a diverse array of organizations leverage TCP’s TimeClock Plus scheduling system each and every day to optimize staffing levels, reduce labor costs and improve employee engagement across a variety of departments and functions.
From public safety to hospitals to the mid-sized manufacturer, TCP online employee scheduling solutions help to clear the clutter for hassle-free scheduling that helps you ensure the right people know where and when they’re expected to work.
TCP’s TimeClock Plus Scheduling Capabilities
Standard Employee Scheduling
Build work schedules as needed or create a schedule with up to 8 recurring unique weeks. Templates can be deployed to simplify setup and changes can be made either globally or at the employee level.
Scheduling exceptions track anomalies against the schedule so you can focus on addressing non-conformance.
The ability to monitor late arrivals and absences or punch times that don’t comply with policy can help you quickly uncover potential issues before they cost your organization money or time.
TimeClock Plus Advanced Scheduling helps organizations that have more dynamic and complex scheduling needs, such as coverage assurance, qualification requirements for shifts, CBA compliance and employee shift swaps.
The Advanced Scheduler shift calendar offers a quick and easy way for managers to fill open shifts and the shift roster allows schedule swapping and drop requests to be initiated by employees, enabling managers to spend less time managing schedules and more time leading their team toward organizational goals.
Government agencies, especially those in public safety, who work with unions and require minimum coverage to maintain established staffing standards will benefit from the capabilities available with the Advanced Scheduler.
