Shifts & Rosters: Extends Skedulo’s Powerful Scheduling Capabilities to Deskless Workers in Facilities or Fixed Locations

With the introduction of Shifts & Rosters, companies are able to schedule their front-line deskless workers for both remote, appointment-based jobs as well as shift-based jobs at facilities and fixed-locations. The result is that deskless workers can be managed in one system, improving visibility to deskless workforce productivity and driving operational efficiency.

Features include:

  • Single-system visibility of schedules for all deskless employees
  • Ability to build base roster templates and re-use them 
  • Schedule, assign, and dispatch a roster for a particular time period. 
  • Track time spent working, distance travelled, and check-in/check-out time by location
  • View utilization and cost information for completed work
  • Monitor work completed for fixed locations separately from mobile work, as needed

Skedulo Analytics: Harness the Power of Data to Drive Efficiency and Guide Strategy

Traditionally data about deskless worker productivity has resided in multiple systems depending on industry and business requirements.The new capability uses data in a meaningful way to unlock insights that can improve worker productivity, drive operational efficiency, influence company strategy, and give organizations a competitive edge. 

Features include:

  • Ability to connect fragmented data across systems allowing Skedulo to serve as the source of metrics on deskless workforce productivity
  • Clear and actionable reporting on worker hours and costs
  • Simplified administrative and compliance reporting
  • Readily exportable data for 3rd party reporting.

Dynamic Messaging: Engage Employees and Drive Productivity 

Many deskless workers have direct interaction with customers and are the face of the company. Their performance on the job impacts customer satisfaction, company reputation, and ultimately business growth. Dynamic messaging gives mobile workers a powerful tool to communicate on-demand with schedulers and other resources necessary to do their job well, resulting in happy employees and happy customers.

Features (in early preview) include:

  • Immediate communication between deskless workers,  schedulers, and other resources
  • Share key info and documents with the entire team involved in that job
  • Ability to directly connect forms and send data about a job to headquarters
  • Integration with the Skedulo Mobile App means deskless workers have a single “pane of glass” to access information needed for a job
