Any leading HRIS or a payroll system does a capable job of informing an employee
what they will be paid for their performance to date – straight time, overtime,
vacation, medical leave. By contrast, Tugboat’s solutions provide answers to a
range of key questions that look ahead, for both employees and managers. “Look
ahead” means converting your upcoming production or service requirements into
very specific assignments – job, shift, vacation, etc. Payroll solutions look
backwards. The distribution of your workforce on the next shift, tomorrow, next
week, rotating shifts, OT, planned absences, vacations, training, job preferences;
all of it. This is the design message for Tugboat’s new web site.
Each employee needs to plan and has questions. Lots of questions. Without
having to wait-in-line for their manager or supervisor – or leave their current job
assignment – they want answers now. When do I rotate to my next job
assignment? Will I get the OT? Am I drafted? Were my job preferences
considered? Did I get that extra vacation period? How much paid time off do I
have left? That open job position, can I get training?
How about your supervisors and managers? How much is my department
spending on OT? Can the mix of workers be optimized to reduce this cost? If
those key people are out, can we meet our production or service objectives? With
Tugboat’s solutions, the answer is yes.
Tugboat’s comprehensive solutions not only schedules your workforce and
manages their vacation assignments, it does quite a bit more. With our
proprietary technology – Tugboat optimizes all job assignments in order to meet
your planned objectives: for example, elimination un-needed OT. And, this can be
measured.With a large workforce, timely answers to these, and many related questions,
have a critical impact on the productivity and wellbeing of your workforce.
