As any child care facility director knows, running a business involving children (and parents) can seem insane at times. TimeForge enables you to have streamlined labor management in your business. Labor is usually the largest expense (and time drain) when managing a childcare center, so a daycare center director needs to make sure that employee scheduling and attendance monitoring are very efficient. However, labor management paperwork (especially scheduling) often gets pushed aside.
It’s not hard to understand why employee scheduling gets short shrift. Labor scheduling can be a hassle. You need to coordinate each employee’s availability, level of skill, accrued PTO, time off requests, shift swap requests, meal breaks, shift overlaps to relay information, and planning or training breaks. Scheduling floaters so your primary staff can all get breaks can be especially difficult.
On top of all that, you need to make sure that you consider which times are your busiest (like major pick up and drop off times). Then, you need to notify your staff about their schedules, re-make the schedule if someone calls in, find a fill-in, then notify employees about changes… again! Who has time to monitor attendance, forecast labor costs (or keep an eye on them in real time) and do “what-if” scheduling calculations after all of that scheduling?
With TimeForge, you have time.
TimeForge can cut the time you spend on tedious tasks, like scheduling and monitoring attendance from hours to minutes. Really.
