Doubling staff and becoming a part of Barilla, the world’s largest pasta producer, has brought new opportunities and financial needs to the table.
“We are growing massively and very quickly, so we’re looking for a system that can support us with easy tracking and an overview of labour costs,” Charles says.
“Planday makes it easy for us to trim areas where we’re seeing low volume of sales but high costs.”
Tracking worked hours, shift patterns and attendance by using the Punch Clock helps managers keep an overview of business’ performance.
“Everyone has the hang of it and knows when they need to be in at work so Planday helps us hold staff accountable. Having the Punch Cock to do that is good. Previously, it was harder to track if someone was on time or not”.
“Our staff enjoy contacting me through Planday, they know that I’m here to help and it’s nice for them to put a face to the name”.
“Planday is now a part of the onboarding of new employees. Everyone knows that it’s the key tool they will be using when they are on shift and to clock in and out. The transition has been fairly smooth, and people picked it up quickly”.
Online scheduling makes it easier for managers to ensure they have the right staff in place while keeping track of labour costs.
“My favourite feature is that you can pick filters on your schedule and certain shift types to show. This makes it easy for me to pull out the shift costs and get the number of hours straight away. That’s super helpful,” Charles says.
“We are able to see which areas are costing us which amounts and at what time of the day. Planday also makes it possible to forecast how many hours we are devoting to tasks, so we can improve our cost-effectiveness and become more streamlined.
“I also like Planday because it’s easy to store employee documents and have a bit of a repository there, rather than having to upload it to the cloud or store it on my laptop”.
“When I bring someone into the system, I just pull all the documents in there and nothing gets lost.”
