Workforce Scheduling Software Overview
Snap Schedule Premium gives you enterprise-class employee scheduling power and innovative workforce management features that save time, reduce labor costs, and improve workforce productivity. Designed for multi-user access, deployable on-premise or in the cloud, it has all the features you need and can scale up as your scheduling requirements grow.
Secure, real-time operation with role-based access control
With Snap Schedule Premium’s role-based, multi-user access features, you can maintain complete control over the scheduling process by granting or denying user access to individual commands, features, and reports. For example, you can grant your schedulers the authority to make schedule assignments and updates, allow your managers full access to personnel data and manpower requirements, and provide other employees with only read access to certain schedule views and reports. You can set privileges to limit access to sensitive data like labor costs, financial reports, or employee information. You can create as many roles as you like, each one with a different set of privileges and assign a role to a group of users.
Store your data wherever you like and access it from anywhere
Snap Schedule Premium workforce scheduling software uses Microsoft SQL Server for its data storage and works with all on-premise Microsoft SQL Server editions from 2005 to 2008 R2, Web-hosted SQL Server 2005/2008 platforms, our hosted database service, and the Microsoft SQL Azure cloud-based relational database service. You have a wide range of options on where to store your data. You can use the included SQL Server Express Edition on your desktop, connect to a database on your enterprise SQL server, or put your data on a Web-hosted platform so users can access the data from anywhere using a simple Internet connection.
Monitor attendance, work hours, and labor costs
With the Punch scheduling view and the employee remote access application, you can use the digital version of a punchcard to see exactly how your scheduled hours compare to the hours your employees are actually working. The employee remote access option allows employees to digitally punch in and out, sending information to the Snap Schedule Premium software and allowing you to monitor punch in/out times in realtime.
Track schedule changes
Snap Schedule Premium software keeps track of the changes each user makes to the employee scheduling database. Whether you log in/out, create new data records, delete or make changes to existing data, Snap Schedule Premium maintains a database activity log that serves as an audit trail. You can use this log to get answers to questions like “Who logged in from where, when did they log in, and what changes were made?". Snap Schedule Premium software supports Windows authentication for single sign-on and bypasses signing in if the Windows login name is identical to its user name.
Cut workforce scheduling & admin time
Snap Schedule Premium’s easy-to-use graphical user interface and powerful tools make scheduling, editing information, analyzing data, and distributing schedules easy and simple. It provides you with more ways to view scheduling data: Daily View by shift or by employee, Shift View with coverage summary for each position, Task View for scheduled tasks and breaks within a shift, and the familiar Calendar View of assignments. Drag & drop to easily assign shifts, mark time off, and move or copy assignments. Split shifts, multiple shifts, paid time off, unpaid time off and on calls are all supported. E-mail or publish schedules and any reports in PDF and a variety of other formats.
Reduce labor costs and avoid overtime
Snap Schedule Premium workforce scheduling software lets you accurately track absences and forecast staffing needs to minimize over-staffing, which in turn reduces payroll costs. It automatically sums up employees’ work hours and costs; calculates overtime, on-call, time off, and shift premium pays; and provides detailed cost reports so you know instantly if you are on budget. With flexible overtime and shift premium pay rules, you can handle virtually any type of compensation pay and foresee the cost impact while making a work schedule.
Comply with labor rules and collective agreements
Snap Schedule Premium employee scheduling software helps you avoid grievances and ensure compliance to collective bargaining agreements, HR policies, labor and working time regulations. Select the conflict checks you want to run and make shift assignment with the assurance that Snap Schedule Premium will warn you of any violations. When filling an open shift, you can use multiple criteria to narrow down eligible employees.
Enterprise-grade performance for today’s IT demands
Built on the latest Microsoft® .NET and SQL Server technologies, Snap Schedule Premium workforce scheduling software provides a scalable and extensible scheduling solution for enterprise-grade performance at a small business price. In-house developers and system integrators can use the Snap Schedule Premium software development kit (SDK) to integrate Snap Schedule Premium software into your company’s specific workflow and backend payroll systems or to create custom plug-ins to extend its functionality.
