Increase Store Profits – Enforcing labor schedules (stopping early clock in’s and late clock out’s) immediately controls labor costs, often improving store profitability by more than 3% – 5%. Staff members will know what is expected of them, and are constantly “in the know” about the upcoming schedules. Happy employees stay employed and don’t leave for greener pastures, reducing turnover, onboarding, and training costs.
Fast Employee Scheduling – Build schedules that balance employee needs and business requirements while keeping labor costs within budget. The proprietary TimeForge AutoScheduler forecasts labor needs, and warns of labor shortages, while providing an easy-to-use scheduling system that builds accurate employee schedules in seconds.
Schedule Enforcement – Enforce the labor schedule and stop employees from riding the clock. Staff member clock in’s and clock out’s can require manager approval before clocking in early, or clocking out late. Schedules can be built around sales forecasts or expected hourly (or daily) covers to further control labor expectations.
Staff Scheduling Reminders, Remote Access – The TimeForge employee portal provides remote access for staff members to view employee work schedules, review time cards, make time off requests, change availability, swap shifts with other employees, and receive daily schedule alerts via text messages or email.
Remotely Monitor Time and Attendance – Remotely check on staff members that are clocked in at the store. Monitor daily, weekly, and monthly labor costs and attendance trends through the TimeForge website, mobile smartphones, and Facebook.
