Before adopting Celayix, Staff 1 primarily relied on manual processes for scheduling and workforce management. This manual approach involved pen-and-paper methods for tracking employee schedules. A significant drawback was the lack of a centralized system for tracking employee availability and schedules. Staff 1 often struggled to determine which employees were available for specific shifts or events.
To communicate schedules, they relied heavily on email, which introduced inefficiencies and made real-time tracking of changes or updates a daunting task. Managing schedules through Excel spreadsheets proved inadequate as the company grew, causing administrative chaos. As Staff 1 expanded its operations to encompass a larger workforce, manual processes became increasingly challenging to maintain accurately, as the sheer number of employees made efficient scheduling a complex endeavour.
The limited control over work assignments was also a concern. The company could only schedule a limited number of venues due to the complexity and limitations of manual scheduling, limiting their flexibility in managing different events simultaneously.
Celayix’s innovative workforce management software presented tailored solutions to address the specific challenges faced by Staff 1. The introduction of self-scheduling allowed employees to build their own shifts within predefined rules, offering them greater autonomy while reducing the administrative burden on management.
Our geofencing feature enabled Staff 1 to track employee locations, ensuring that they were where they needed to be for events and shifts, enhancing security and accountability. Automating scheduling processes with Celayix led to substantial time savings. Tasks that used to take hours with manual processes were now accomplished in a matter of minutes, allowing for a more efficient allocation of staff.
The software’s configurability allowed Staff 1 to adapt the solution to their specific needs, tailoring it to the unique requirements of their industry. Time-off management and Etime features were widely used by employees, allowing them to request time off and manage their own time, reducing administrative overheads. The Schedule Xpress feature enabled quick and easy access to available staff based on their skills and availability, ensuring that the company had the right personnel for each event.
Furthermore, Celayix effectively prevented double booking and errors by checking employee availability in real-time, ensuring no employee was scheduled for overlapping shifts.
Although reluctant to move on from our previous process that I was accostomed to, once I began using Celayix, I quickly understood its value and how much time and effort it was going to save us.Scheduler, Staff 1
