Workforce Management Software- Development Time, Cost, Features, and More

Posted By : Vipasha Singh | August 26, 2020

Workforce Management Software

As the fourth industrial revolution progresses, most industries have become technology-driven. Technology integrations have become ubiquitous, whether it is data handling or process management or customer relationship management. Overseeing the workforce, for expanding businesses, in its entirety is a back-breaking task. On-premise deployment and management of the workforce are inadequate to organize a sizable, task-specific workforce. It is thus important to align the workforce with enterprise goals for businesses to run efficiently. Employing AI-based solutions like strategic workforce planning and workforce management equips enterprises with forecasting, analysis, and data modeling tools for human capital management.

We, at Oodles, provide a broad spectrum of workforce management solutions to automate job tracking and task scheduling, and to eliminate work environment restraints. Workforce management software customized to the particular requirements of an organization caters to people, assignments, and data of all business sizes. It tracks, organizes, analyzes, and converts employee data into a dashboard view which respective managers can view at their discretion.

Advantages of Workforce Management Software:

Consistent Infrastructure

A cloud-based workforce management software puts all homogenous employee data in one place. At Oodles, our developers use the best technologies in the market for a specific application. We develop microservices, that are synced with a single database, in Django, Magento, and Springboot. Widely known as the microservices architecture, this system brings varied technologies in one place. For example, we can put together modules designed on java-based frameworks with those designed on Angular or Python.

Fast implementation

A distinctive feature of cloud-based solutions for workforce management is how quickly organizations can switch to them. To implement profitable software solutions, we configure a platform, and design and integrate applications onto it. We then create an interface with mobile access for employees and higher management. Powered by analytical tools, our workforce management solutions schedule assignments to the workforce as per their skills and time slate. With the right resource persons at your disposal, the implementation process can be carried out in a matter of a few weeks.

Secure cloud-based workforce management

The biggest challenge faced by enterprises in a connected world is to protect enterprise data as well as employee data. For the safe storage and movement of data across the organization, it is necessary to secure authorization and authentication processes. We use a role-based security system that exclusively grants access rights to the employees of the company as per their hierarchical position. We also use Google authenticator’s two-step verification system to validate users of workforce management software.

Features :

Deep learning

According to Forbes, “deep learning is a subset of machine learning where artificial neural networks learn from large amounts of data. It allows machines to solve complex problems on a huge dataset that may be “diverse, unstructured, and inter-connected.” Deep learning algorithms aid WFMSs to develop workflow models adaptive to transition in conditions. Such models serve as the foundation for the successful management of human resources while driving enterprise growth.

 

Forecasting and analytics

AI-based workforce management solutions include analytical tools with forecasting capabilities. At Oodles, we use ElasticSearch, LogStash, Kibana (ELK) stack to find, analyze, and view data in real-time. Be it spotting issues with servers or applications or searching for logs, we accurately perform all these tasks. ELK stack enables managers to view patterns in workforce operations and aids them in formulating the most profitable execution strategy.

 

Priority and Routing Simulation

Machine learning systems come with the ability to simulate real-world scenarios as prioritization and routing rules for staffing. As analytics abilities equip them with patterns and forecasts, it becomes easier for workforce management systems to create work itinerary in real-time.

 

Payroll Processing

Workforce management systems integrated with AI-powered payroll management streamline financial transactions pertaining to wages. New payroll management can be based on historical payroll data or an audited version of it. While there is not much scope of error in these automated transactions, it ensures employees can review paycheck details. This makes AI-based payroll systems both enterprise and employee-friendly.

 

Cloud platform integration

Today, with the ability to securely store data on the cloud, most organizations put their data on cloud platforms using various distribution architectures. At Oodles, we secure authorization and authentication processes for the safe storage and movement of data across the organization. We use a role-based security system that exclusively grants access rights to the employees of the company as per their hierarchical position. We also use Google authenticator’s two-step verification system to validate users of workforce management solutions. Thus, AI-based systems make workforce management efficient and cost-saving in the long run.

 

Social media and web-based screening

As we have already gathered, the analytical capacity of AI algorithms gives enterprises a multitude of benefits. One of them is the screening of publicly available content for positive and negative impact. It not only aids digital marketing practices but also hiring and recruitment processes. Using a blend of natural language processing, face/image recognition, and machine learning, prospective employees can be screened through their public social media activity. This enables organizations to hire and maintain a valuable, goal-aligned workforce.

 

Improved Performance

Enterprises can significantly improve their employee performance using the tools provided by a cloud-based workforce management software. The allotment of skill-specific tasks at most productive schedules, for example, is just one of its many benefits. Mobile workforce management is another. Firstly, employees and managers can access data from anywhere and also assign and complete tasks. Secondly, as data is portable and its access secured, the unavailability of particular devices or workstations does not hinder workflows.

Accurate Forecasting

Cloud-based workforce management solutions include analytical tools with forecasting capabilities. At Oodles, we use ElasticSearch, LogStash, Kibana (ELK) stack to find, analyze and view data in real-time. Be it spotting issues with servers or applications or searching for logs, we accurately perform all these tasks. ELK stack enables managers to view patterns in workforce operations and aids them in formulating the most profitable execution strategy.

Optimized Scheduling

Another benefit of an ELK equipped workforce management system is optimized scheduling and well-resourced dashboard. The dashboard is an application interface that enables managers to monitor their employee data including timesheets, active projects, and leaves. Oodles furnishes enterprises with an AI-powered dashboard where managers can view this data as graphs and charts to evaluate individuals, teams, and departments.

Low investment

For an enterprise to be successful, accomplishing maximum gains while incurring minimum costs is the key. It can be accomplished using SaaS (Software as a Service) for workforce management, in combination with first-rate open-source frontend software. First, it eliminates the cost of setting up an IT department and maintaining the same. Second, as managing employee tasks and schedules is streamlined, managers can devote their undivided attention and capital to core operations.
