Workplace Agility

Business Problem

Multiple things are moving all the time in your business. You need to have the right skilled and available resources, and still take into account for specific organisational labour requirements. Scheduling can be a nightmare – organisations need to understand their demand and be able to work between dispatch and rostering systems to determine who is working when and where. And then you want  to run  ‘alternative scenarios’  to see the impact on the business. While you are doing all this planning, staff and required equipment can become unavailable at any given moment! Organisations need to meet continuously changing demands and being Agile is fast becoming a key requirement for any successful business.

Plaut’s Transformative Solutions

Plaut partners with Quintiq to create world leading workforce optimisation solutions. Together, we enable you to create a single view of all elements of your business that require scheduling and ensuring that these are integrated to back end systems (e.g. SAP/Success Factors) creating seamless and cohesive solutions for your business. Some examples of this include:

  1. Manpower Planning – understanding how your long-term staffing plans allow you to meet demand.
  2. Rostering – Generating rosters that account for your business’ unique scheduling constraints (including shift preferences).
  3. Shift Bidding – Empowering your staff to bid on shifts/schedules through mobility.
  4. Task Assignment – generate tasks and work order assignments to ensure utilisation of resources is maximised.
  5. Dispatching – allow staff to make informed decisions with real-time visibility of resources.
  6. Day of Operations – Real time insight to resolve Day of Operations challenges in a cost effective manner.

Together, we create the most comprehensive environment to fit your organisation by modeling, simulating, and optimising business – from strategic goals to the end delivery of great experiences.
