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 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 the people accepting, swapping, trading and bidding for shifts.

To be a workforce management suite provider, these companies need to provide at least three pieces of workforce management. These features may include workforce planning and forecasting, time and attendance with clocks and on mobile devices (mandatory), scheduling/shift planning (mandatory), compliance management, reporting and payroll interfaces all built in house. Last but not least, companies need to have 500+ customers on more than three continents.
