Generate workforce schedules that accurately reflect your business resource needs, employee preference and statutory work rules. Plan ahead so you are in control of your costs, scheduling to a labour budget or % of sales and reduce timely manual processes for schedule creation. You can even plan and allocate tasks, so employees are not only clear on the hours they are working but the tasks they need to perform within a shift.
Automate your manual processes
With RITEQ Workforce Manager (WFM), schedules can be viewed and compiled in a variety of different ways to reflect your own workforce planning requirements. Employee-driven scheduling allows simple weekly cell-based format or you can use templates to reflect business needs at different times such as Christmas or peak periods, or schedules can be automatically generated by business demand drivers, accurately predicting your labour requirements.
With the ability to auto-fill schedules based on availability, skills and other criteria, managers can be focused on other business needs rather than bogged down with tiresome manual processes. Unassigned shifts are filled more easily with shift bidding and employee relief function, will help find replacement staff for unplanned absences.

Our scheduling module will maximise your workforce potential placing the right people in the right place at the right time, maintaining the critical balance between meeting service expectations, reducing payroll costs and maximising sales.

RITEQ’s workforce schedule alerts are real time. Configurable warnings and blockers ensure rosters not only meet operational needs but also warn of: expensive overtime, the creation of shift clashes, skill and training compliance, minimum engagement, adherence to budget and so much more.
