Partnership Provides Complete Workforce Scheduling Solution

10-01-2008

 - Hands on partnership provides a complete end-to-end Workforce Scheduling solution to reduce absenteeism and ensure health and safety compliance -

 
January 2008:  Leading international shiftwork research and consulting firm, CIRCADIAN™, announced today a strategic partnership with Rostima, a global leader in Enterprise Workforce Management solutions, to provide the most comprehensive workforce scheduling solution for shiftwork and 24/7 operations. The combined expertise of both companies will help increase productivity and health and safety compliance of a 24/7 workforce using open, flexible technologies which enable organisations to match staff resources to workload.
 
The partnership enables Rostima and CIRCADIAN to offer an end-to-end workforce management solution. By combining the research, consultancy knowledge and experience of CIRCADIAN with the scheduling software expertise at Rostima, customers now have one complete solution for assessing, planning, solving and maintaining their workforce scheduling. CIRCADIAN will research, design and help implement optimum shift patterns for client operations and these will be uploaded into Rostima’s Enterprise Plus software. This enables shift managers to effectively administer the workforce, updating the software with specifics such as an individual’s shift and overtime preferences, skill sets and company health and safety requirements.
 
Managers and employees alike benefit from these value-added consulting programs, employee shiftwork lifestyle training, and other shiftwork interventions. Coupled with configurable software which establishes the optimised shift pattern schedule, unprecedented insight is provided from operating managers on how to schedule their staff most efficiently and how to maintain and monitor their schedule’s performance.
 
As experts in shift management, CIRCADIAN’s customer base is made up of more than half of the Fortune 500. CIRCADIAN's specialists are experts in operations management, human resources, fatigue management, occupational health and safety, and sleep disorders. Their consultants provide comprehensive shiftwork training and education programs to shiftworkers and help organisations match shift schedules to operational requirements and employee needs to achieve win-win outcomes. The end result is lower costs and a healthier and more productive workforce.
 
Rostima is defining the way organisations approach labour scheduling through the use of software. Rostima’s flagship software - Rostima Enterprise Plus - incorporates workforce planning, optimised scheduling, time & attendance and employee self-service functionality. Rostima’s software solution helps organisations optimise their labour schedules by matching workload to staff resources, thereby increasing operational efficiency, reducing labour costs, improving staff retention and enhancing service levels.
 
Steve Moore, CEO, Rostima commented, “This strategic partnership unites Rostima’s best-in-class solution with CIRCADIAN, the leading shift-work research and consulting firm and enables our customers to manage their businesses and their staff more effectively.” He continues, “By combining research into the optimum shift pattern and software that has built-in fatigue management capability, we can assist in employee health and safety and aid organisations in operating the most efficient working patterns possible.”
 
Dr. Martin Moore-Ede, CIRCADIAN’s CEO, commented, “By partnering with Rostima, CIRCADIAN is making it easier for our customers to adopt and maintain the optimum shift patterns that we design. This hands-on business partnership with Rostima means that we can offer our customers an end-to-end workforce management solution which helps them identify how to manage their shift patterns more efficiently and offers solutions to scheduling difficulties as and when they arise”.
