Partnership provides Advanced’s customers with improved workforce rostering functionality
Advanced Business Solutions (Advanced) has announced a partnership with RealFlair Limited, which is a resource management development company providing optimisation and rostering software. RealFlair’s Workforce Optimisation solution will now link into Advanced’s human resource (HR) and payroll solutions, enabling improved and more cost-effective workforce rostering.
Realflair’s Workforce Optimisation is a flexible web-based rostering solution that is ideal for businesses with complex staff rostering needs, such as care homes, airports, travel operators and retail organisations. Complementing Advanced’s existing portfolio of time and attendance and rostering solutions, Workforce Optimisation enables visibility of a comprehensive staff roster at a touch of a button, reducing the time, frustration and costs associated with traditional scheduling methods.
Using Workforce Optimisation, managers are given the necessary information and foresight to assign the most cost-effective employees to certain shifts and/or tasks, thereby minimising costly overtime and agency usage. The solution also matches available staff resources to business demand, further cutting labour costs.
Simon Fowler, Managing Director of Advanced Business Solutions (Commercial), says, “In the current economic climate, organisations are looking at ways to cut costs and to utilise staff more effectively. We are teaming up with RealFlair so that we can offer customers a smart workforce scheduling solution that increases productivity, improves staff utilisation and delivers a high return on investment.”
John Thornewill, Managing Director of RealFlair, says, “Having proven our optimisation technology with a number of direct clients, we felt that the time was right to approach a larger business with a view to forming a partnership that could expand our customer base. Advanced’s broad range of clients and flexible approach to partnerships really appealed to us and the two companies are already working extremely well together.”
