Workforce management is a crucial business function that directly impacts the overall productivity and efficiency of a business. In the absence of effective workforce management software, enterprises would fail to reach their true potential. Besides, it may give rise to internal conflicts which may cause major productivity gaps.
On the contrary, having a fully integrated workforce management system in place will definitely give you an edge as it helps achieve streamlined business workflows. In doing so, it enables organizations to sail through their routine operational complexities and achieve higher levels of productivity.

Now let us talk about all these modules in more detail with a focus on their key features and core capabilities.
Shift scheduling is a part of time and labor management that deals with the scheduling of employee shifts in a company. The scheduling can be manual or automatic depending on the needs of an organization. It works on specific parameters that are already defined by the company. A shift scheduling system also determines the sequence of work, shift changes, and idle hours. Apart from that, you can run multiple shift plans in the system, specifying the shift duration. For instance, a system may be monitoring various shifts simultaneously including three-day shifts, five-day shifts, or even hourly shifts. Needless to say, a shift scheduling system saves you a lot of time and effort by streamlining your complex workflows.
As the name suggests, an attendance tracking system keeps a track of the day-to-day check-in and check-out times. Besides, it tracks break timings and the number of breaks taken by employees during work hours. These systems can be integrated with the payroll software for excellent results. The attendance tracking system also makes it easier to plan leaves and comp-offs. Every time an employee applies for leave, an approval request is sent to the supervisor. Even the check-in and check-out times are approved by the supervisor. Therefore, it helps prevent any malpractices and aids in bringing out maximum workforce productivity.
An applicant tracking system or simply ATS is a software application that electronically handles all recruitment-related tasks such as planning, searching, screening, evaluation, and control. As a matter of fact, modern-day applicant tracking systems are quite similar to a CRM module. However, their use is limited to the recruitment tracking processes whereas the CRM systems are more sophisticated and provide comprehensive HR management capabilities. Another notable difference between the two is that CRM systems are a part of ERP while ATS systems come under workforce management.
Paid time offs (PTOs) are offered by many companies to their employees, enabling them to take fixed time offs without losing their remuneration. There is usually a dedicated module for PTO management that enables project managers to track, manage, approve or disapprove time-off requests. The PTO module provides a centralized software interface where managers can track various time-off requests and take appropriate action.
