About this Constellation ShortList
As enterprises face longer and more flexible working hours, they look for help with tracking time, scheduling attendance and managing worker attendance. This area is complex with many compliance rules, often different at the country, state and even city level. Leaders look for tools to help their operational managers – typically shift leaders and managers in manufacturing, transport, power, food & beverage, hospitality, repair shops and retail - make better workforce management decisions. At the same time, the worker experience is key for accepting, swapping, trading and bidding for shifts.
