This shift scheduling expert works 24 x 7 and never needs a break or a vacation.

100% Compliant Library Schedules

Shift Scheduling Rules Engine

Most Library Management System scheduling tools don’t have a rules engine, and those that do typically have a small number of pre-defined rules that are hard to change. As a result, you get stuck trying to fit into someone else’s idea of your library staff scheduling.

With Celayix, you can create an unlimited number of shift scheduling rules that fit your policies, contracts, staff preferences, and business objectives. Celayix uses your rules and creates schedules based on how you want your schedules done. Your schedules are automatically filled, or you can send them out for self-scheduling to only those staff who are available and qualified.

Basic LMS scheduling software tools or free Excel and Google Sheets templates can’t match the precision and speed of Celayix’ shift scheduling rules engine.

Eliminate Timesheet Fraud

100% Accurate Time & Attendance

For Libraries, time & attendance, timesheet or timecard fraud can cost you as much as 7% of total payroll.

An astounding 43% of staff admit to padding their timesheets.

Celayix gives you 100% accurate GPS and AI-verified facial recognition so you know the right staff member is in the right place at the right time and their co-workers aren’t logging the timesheet for them. When there’s something unusual, you’ll be the first to know. With Celayix, you know you’re only paying for actual time worked.

End Data Entry Errors

100% Accurate Payroll & Billing

Time & attendance and payroll errors can cost Libraries as much as 8% of their payroll value.

Shockingly, 24% of staff will look for new work after the very first payroll error, and only 44% of those staff would reconsider looking for work after an error is fixed. In unionized workplaces, the grievances can be time consuming and costly.

Celayix’ time & attendance software will send Library staff shift performance data to your preferred LMS, payroll, billing, and financial systems and make those problems disappear.

Best-of-Breed AND All-in-One

Shift Schedule and Time & Attendance Integration

A long time ago, in what seems to be a galaxy far away, we used to need one vendor to supply our critical library management systems in order for everything to work together. Integration was too costly.

You don’t need to do that anymore. Today, integration is inexpensive and easier than ever. With integration platforms like Zapier designed for small and mid-size organizations, anyone can integrate software applications often without a single line of code.

Celayix connects its library staff shift-scheduling and time & attendance software in the cloud with your LMS, payroll, billing, accounting, HR, business analysis tools, and many other applications. Celayix has over 20 years experience connecting to over 80 different software systems. With our newest Zapier integration, now we can connect to thousands of applications.

The End of All-In-One Compromises for Libraries

We will give you the All-in-One system with Best-of-Breed functionality. Our integrated solutions make sure that 100% of your workforce management requirements are met.
