Mit Kronos Workforce Tablet bleiben Ihre Manager auch mobil handlungsfähig

Kronos Incorporated stellt heute erstmalig Workforce Tablet™ vor, eine schlanke, einfach zu nutzende Tablet App, die Frontline-Managern standortspezifische Mitarbeiterinformationen in Echtzeit liefert, so dass sie effektiver arbeiten können.

News Facts

  • Workforce Tablet ist eine speziell für das Apple iPad entwickelte Tablet Lösung und bietet eine sofortige Verbindung zur Kronos Workforce Central® Suite - jederzeit und an jedem Ort.
  • Workforce Tablet verbindet alle Annehmlichkeiten und Möglichkeiten einer mobilen Applikation  mit der Prozessorleistung, dem großen Bildschirm und der Benutzerfreundlichkeit eines iPads. Die einfache und intuitive Bedienung erfordert nahezu keinerlei Anwendertraining. Hauptmerkmale sind unter anderem:
    • Analysen - Mit branchenspezifischen und marktübergreifenden Standardübersichten, KPIs und Drill-Down-Reporten für Führungskräfte und verschiedene Managementebenen, bieten die tabletspezifischen Analysen wertvolle Entscheidungshilfen, indem Handlungsempfehlungen gegeben werden, um Produktivität, Qualität und Service-Level im Griff zu behalten.
    • GeoSensing - ermöglicht Managern, die für verschiedene Abteilungen oder geografische Regionen zuständig sind,  den aktuellen Standort zu ermitteln und so die relevanten Informationen wie Mitarbeiterlisten, Einsatzpläne und Arbeitsinformationen für den gewünschten Standort zu erhalten. Mit GeoSensing sind die wichtigsten Informationen immer direkt verfügbar und zeitraubende Suchprozesse durch lange Mitarbeiterlisten und Datensätze entfallen.
    • Personaleinsatzplanung - Manager können offene Schichten anlegen, Abrechnungsregeln hinzufügen oder löschen und mit Hilfe der Telefonlistenfunktion Schichten neu auf andere Mitarbeiter verteilen. Einsatzpläne können einfach bearbeitet werden und Sie können mit Drag and Drop Schichten zwischen den Mitarbeitern hin und her verschieben, um schnell und einfach Anpassungen am Einsatzplan vorzunehmen. Sie haben sogar Zugriff auf ihre Reporte und können sofort sehen, wie sich Überstunden auf ihr Betriebsergebnis auswirken.
    • Personalbesetzung - Workforce Tablet bietet eine optische Anzeige von Über-/Unterbesetzung für alle Abteilungen. Manager können umgehend erkennen, wie die geplante Personalbesetzung den Bedarf abdeckt und mit Drag and Drop die passenden Mitarbeiter mit den benötigten Fähigkeiten auswählen, um die Besetzung an den Bedarf anzupassen. Frühere Besetzungsschemen können analysiert werden, um herauszufinden wie gut sie Bedarf und Besetzung in Übereinstimmung gebracht haben und auf zukünftige Bedürfnisse angepasst werden.
    • Zeiterfassung - Manager können Zeiterfassungsdaten genehmigen und auf der Landkarte sehen, wo genau mobile Mitarbeiter ihre Arbeitszeiten erfasst haben (auf Wunsch). Mit einem Fingertipp können Zeiterfassungsprobleme wie vergessene, zu späte oder zu frühe Buchungen bearbeitet werden. Die täglichen Aufgaben können schneller abgearbeitet werden und Änderungen werden in Echtzeit mit den Informationen im Workforce Central System abgeglichen.
  • Kronos Workforce Tablet steht im Apple App Store zum Download zur Verfügung.
  • Die Kronos Tablet Anwendung ist ab sofort in Englisch, Spanisch, Französisch, Niederländisch und vereinfachtem und traditionellen Chinesisch verfügbar.
