The Paradox of Workforce Management Modernization
In the midst of a pandemic, surging globalization, and a complicated new normal, businesses around the world are facing a unique paradox. Despite unprecedented demand for workforce modernization initiatives, senior executives are hesitant to proceed. This is a form of survival instinct – they believe the more extensive the digital transformation, the greater the risk of costly, regressive disruption, and so choose to avoid it altogether. In the meantime, the challenges that existed pre-pandemic haven’t gone anywhere, either. Still contending with increasingly complex gross pay calculations, volatile compliance legislation, and now a ballooning mobile workforce on top of everything else, businesses today need to act fast or find themselves facing a problem too big to fix.
Fortunately, the paradox of workforce management modernization falls apart under scrutiny. This is because it assumes all transformations must come at the expense of broken processes and fractured ecosystems. But a real solution won’t make you choose – it will offer scalability and configurability to meet all local requirements while providing global governance, cover any complex time tracking scenario, and support mobile workers, compliance and more without disrupting existing processes or imposing complicated customization projects.
Replicon, named as a top vendor on the Constellation ShortList for Workforce Management Suites three times in a row, has you covered with these capabilities:
A Unified System of Record
A centralized, scalable, single source of truth for time across an entire organization is one of the most fundamental components in an effective enterprise-wide transformation. This sets the standard for control over key factors like visibility and accuracy, eliminates data silos, and ensures everyone stays on the same page regarding key metrics like time, pay, and labor costs.
Modern Mobile and Non-Intrusive Data Capture
Cutting-edge technologies seem to be less of a luxury every day as self-service mobile capabilities become more and more essential in meeting the requirements of a remote and deskless workforce. Replicon’s modern user interfaces and non-intrusive, real-time data capture drive rapid adoption utilizing technology like touchless time clocks for increased employee safety, face identification, voice commands, geofencing, GPS tracking, chatbots, and intelligent approvals to enhance accuracy and control over costs and performance.
Global Labor Compliance
Compliance today is far from straightforward, and maintaining evolving wage-and-hour policies in different geographies can feel next to impossible when businesses are stuck relying on local vendors and manual processes. Replicon provides a built-in global compliance library at its core, with proactive monitoring and automatic over-the-air updates to minimize risk and ensure adherence to policies everywhere you operate.
Reliable Project Time Tracking
Replicon’s cloud-based project time tracking helps resources understand the exact projects and tasks that need their attention in real-time, and enables them to provide accurate inputs that tie into metrics such as pay, costing, productivity, billing, and profitability. Enhanced project allocation and maximized resource utilization streamline project delivery and keep businesses operationally efficient.
Sophisticated scheduling capabilities enable businesses to stay on top of resource availability and avoid the frustrations of repeatedly over and under-staffing shifts. The ability to communicate schedule changes to employees in real-time can help businesses manage workforce productivity, overtime and labor costs.
Tailored Time Off
The importance of effective absence management cannot be overlooked when accrual rules, resets, carryovers, overdraw limits and effective dates vary considerably across one organization. Replicon allows businesses to automate time off policies and define regional calendar holidays and individual allowances, freeing payroll and HR teams from unnecessary administrative overhead.
Complex Needs, Simple Solution
