Workforce Forecast Manager

With Kronos Workforce Forecast Manager, managers are able to accurately predict labor demand and scheduling needs down to 15 minute intervals. Workforce Forecast Manager removes the guesswork behind scheduling, avoiding costly overstaffing or understaffing. The Forecast Manager produces forecasts using algorithms based on units sold, sales, number of transactions, etc. to determine business volume.

The Forecast Manager solution gathers and interprets data collected from companies’ point of sale (POS) systems to predict business volume each week. Only three weeks of historical data is needed before the solution can be implemented, using exponential smoothing to predict future volume. For further precision, the solution uses adaptive forecasting if two or more years of historical data is available, tuning itself to select the best-fit algorithm and taking into account seasonality, variations and special events.

Workforce Scheduler

After managers know the forecasted amount of labor needed for a given hour, day or week, they can create schedules accordingly using the Kronos Workforce Scheduler. The Workforce Scheduler allows managers to maximize labor productivity, minimize compliance risk and avoid costly over/understaffing. The Workforce Scheduler solution automatically matches and assigns the necessary labor demand to meet business demand (forecasted using historical data).

The solution will automatically generate the number of individuals needed to cover a shift, allowing managers to select the best candidates to fill the shift based on seniority, schedule availability, etc. The Schedule-to-Skill feature allows managers to assign certain employees with different levels of skill sets to a shift, such as to ensure that all inexperienced employees don’t work the highest demand shift together. Managers can assign proficiency requirements to automate the process.

Workforce Scheduler also keeps scheduling compliant by taking scheduling rules and regulations into account, such as ensuring that employees go on break after a certain number of hours.

Workforce Scheduler saves organizations from high labor costs and streamlines productivity.
