MANAGE PLANNED WORK
  • Create and manage work patterns. A work pattern is an employee’s work schedule that reflects their employment contract. The software supports asynchronous work patterns where hours of work are different from one pay period to another.
  • Create and manage calendars. Integrate your planned RDO dates, your special holiday dates, your standby calendar, your planned sleepovers and your planned leave with the software’s public holiday calendar.
  • Create and publish employee rosters. You define the amount of advance notice employees receive for their rosters.

MANAGE TIMES WORKED
  • Electronic employee timesheets are automatically created for each pay period. They contain rostered hours, all holidays and planned leave.
  • Enter start and finish times on data collection devices or have your employees update their timesheets directly. Time data can be collected from time-clocks or employees can use their mobile devices for timekeeping – collected times are entered into employee timesheets by the software.

MANAGE ROSTERS
  • Manage your rosters. If your rostering needs are dynamic you can change rostered hours on the fly and allocate employees to jobs or sites.
  • Notify your employees. Employees are notified of all roster changes vie the software’s work-flow.
  • Receive employee feedback. Casual and part time employees can advise their availability over the roster period and beyond.
  • Cost your rosters. Our software costs your rosters and re-costs them as they change.

INTERPRET HOURS WORKED
  • Manage Pay rules. Create and manage your pay rules using the software’s sophisticated rules engine. There is no requirement to engage “expert consultants” to do this work. If you understand your EBA/ awards you can define and create rules. Create rules for day workers and shift workers. Create rules for paying annual leave.
  • Interpret timesheets. The software generates pay elements with associated hours by analysing hours worked in combination with the pay rules and rostered hours – the software can allocate site allowances and hourly site penalties.
