To help organizations optimize staffing needs, Oracle NetSuite today announced NetSuite SuitePeople Workforce Management. SuitePeople Workforce Management helps organizations manage labour costs and profitability.
The solution enhances employee engagement by automating routine tasks such as scheduling staff, tracking employee hours worked, and calculating wages. It also uniquely provides recommendations on staff scheduling to help organizations optimize for their business goals.
“In a tight labour market, organizations need to elevate the management of their workforce to be competitive,” said Evan Goldberg, founder and EVP, Oracle NetSuite. “With SuitePeople Workforce Management, organizations can quickly adjust staffing to align with changing business conditions. They can also ensure they accurately pay their employees and meet compliance requirements. This addition to SuitePeople reinforces our commitment to helping our customers increase employee engagement, which in turn positively impacts the bottom line.”
SuitePeople Workforce Management helps organizations balance workforce needs and profitability by providing finance and operational management with insights into metrics around sales, production targets, and labour costs. It supports employee engagement by enabling employees to view their schedules, clock in and out of shifts, and request shift changes directly from their mobile device.
“Urban Legacy delivers solid, high-end reclaimed and new wood open shelves that make a difference in the way people live and work. As our business has grown, it has become essential to automate staffing processes to meet increasing demand,” said Kristi Miller, product and platform director, Urban Legacy. “With SuitePeople Workforce Management, scheduling shifts and tracking employees’ time is more efficient than ever. I make all approvals directly in NetSuite and create a payroll batch with one click. This helps put Urban Legacy in a position to plan intelligently and change operations quickly.”
SuitePeople Workforce Management helps organizations ensure timely and accurate financial data by integrating shift forecasting, wage calculations, and scheduling with employee attendance, payroll, and financial systems. SuitePeople Payroll seamlessly processes approved hours for payroll runs and automatically posts to the general ledger. This simplifies the end-to-end workforce management process and increases accuracy. It also helps managers make more informed decisions by providing real-time access to sales and labour data. With SuitePeople Workforce Management, organizations can improve:
Scheduling: A visual shift scheduling tool eliminates the use of stand-alone scheduling applications or spreadsheets. It also enables teams to use a combination of forecasts, employee schedule templates, labour costs, and labour deployment models to build a staffing plan. This enables organizations to more accurately forecast staffing to ensure they are correctly staffed to meet demand.
Attendance Tracking: SuitePeople Time Clock provides employees flexible mobile tools to record time and attendance. It also has options for photo capture and biometric fingerprint verification that eliminate the risk of employees logging in and out of work on behalf of other employees. By combining digital time-clocking with a scheduling solution, SuitePeople Time Clock eliminates the need to manually calculate hours. It also increases the accuracy and efficiency of time collection and payroll processing.
Wage Calculations: A wage rule engine automates the calculation of regular hours, overtime, and holiday pay to help organizations minimize compliance risks. It reduces payroll errors and eliminates the need for manual reconciliations as approved hours seamlessly flow from SuitePeople Workforce Management to SuitePeople Payroll for processing.
Labour and Operational Metrics: A real-time dashboard enables managers to obtain insights into day-to-day operational metrics including sales, wages, and forecasts and compare them to actuals. This visibility helps managers make data-informed decisions around workforce costs and profitability.
Engagement: A mobile app helps employees track time, fill, swap, drop shifts, and chat with managers. It also makes it easier for managers to act if an employee has not punched in or out of scheduled shifts. Through these interactions, the mobile app helps drive greater manager and employee engagement and productivity.
