Eliminate Unprofitable Overtime

Control Employee Overtime

With Celayix, we don’t make you fit into our way of doing things: you can create your own rules about how employee overtime is scheduled.

As a result, Celayix will only schedule employees who won’t trigger overtime. You will get alerts when you try to assign a shift that will create unprofitable overtime and make better choices, and you can always over-ride for profitable or unavoidable overtime.

Celayix will make sure you won’t have to worry about expensive employee scheduling mistakes that could have been avoided.

Your Shift Scheduling Expert

Artificial Intelligence-Based Shift Scheduling

The Celayix scheduling rules engine makes sure all of your employee shift schedules comply with your rules. However, not all employees are equal in their performance.

Celayix AI uses machine-learning to look at your past employee shift schedules and automatically recommends the best new shift assignments.

Celayix is working with leading university research teams to add new features to the Celayix AI platform in 2021.

Better yet, this shift scheduling expert works 24 x 7 and never needs a break or a vacation.

100% Compliant Shift Schedules

Shift Scheduling Rules Engine

Most manufacturing production staff scheduling systems 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 employee shift scheduling.

With Celayix, you can create an unlimited number of production shift scheduling rules that fit your policies, contracts, and business objectives. Then, Celayix uses those rules and assigns shifts based on how you want your shifts assigned.

Eliminate Timesheet Fraud

100% Accurate Time & Attendance

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

An astounding 43% of employees admit to padding timesheets.

Celayix gives you 100% accurate GPS and AI-verified facial recognition so you know the right employee is in the right place at the right time and their buddy isn’t signing in for them. In case they aren’t, you’ll be the first to know. With Celayix, you will only pay for actual time worked.

End Data Entry Errors

100% Accurate Payroll & Billing

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

Shockingly, 24% of employees will look for new work after the very first payroll error, and only 44% of those employees would reconsider looking for work after an error is fixed.

Celayix’ time & attendance software will send employee shift performance data to your preferred MRP, 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 office systems in order for everything to work together. It was too expensive to integrate different software systems.

That isn’t true anymore. In fact, integration has become quite inexpensive with systems like Zapier designed to integrate thousands of applications for only a few dollars per integration. 

Celayix connects its employee shift-scheduling and time & attendance software in the cloud with your MRP, payroll, billing, accounting, HR, business analysis tools, and a ton of other applications. Celayix has over 20 years experience connecting to over 80 different software systems including our new Zapier integration.

The End of All-In-One Compromises for Manufacturing

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.

Scheduling Manufacturing for Over 20 Years

InSync Training

We use this software to manage scheduling nearly 50 independent contractors in supporting our large client base with a number of different service types. We offer global support so we need to manage all time zones and their associated Daylight Savings Time changes so the integration with other calendars such as Outlook is a must! Our schedules are quite fluid and change often as our client’s support needs change; we can schedule up to a year in advance or for the very next day! Our schedulers would be at loss without it! The functionality, search capabilities, filtering, and reporting are a must in our business!
The Celayix help staff is incredibly supportive, responsive and are a joy to work with.
We can’t recommend this highly enough!
