Do you have a global business where your employees are located or constantly moving from one part of the world to another? How do you manage them, track their work and their productivity?
Regardless of whether a company's staffs are global or local, a company needs to know where they are, what they're working on and all the basic visibility that is necessary in order to maximise the output of a team or organisation. Whilst this is easier if your staffs are physically in front of you, it becomes far more challenging when your staff are scattered across different countries, separated by borders and time zones.
The other challenge is how to most effectively schedule your employees on new jobs. You need to be able to schedule them on projects with ease, however also need to keep in mind their region, country or locality on top of the regular considerations. The reason for this is, through efficient scheduling geographically, you will be able to minimise costs, employees' carbon footprints and time by reducing their travel from one job to another.
So how does one make this work? What is the solution?
Employee planning and scheduling software is the solution to providing visibility over your resources and the work they are doing. It is the solution to being able to schedule your resources in a way that they are easily searchable not only by all the skill and availability requirements, but also location requirements.
Good employee planning and scheduling software is connected online enabling staff to logon and view their schedules from wherever they are in the world. They can see what project they are working on, who their colleagues and managers are and the time period over which it will be executed.
