Investigate labor issues and take appropriate action

INSIGHTS helps managers monitor and manage labor productivity and more accurately forecast staffing needs compared with projected volumes. They can match the department's actual labor costs with standard costs, measure productivity against internal and external benchmarks, and better understand—and respond to—the factors responsible for variances.


Accurately calculate and control labor costs

INSIGHTS enables manager to track department workload units—down to the employee and pay code level—and assess performance on a pay-period or even daily basis. Most important, they can see exactly how well labor is being managed in relation to organizational objectives, optimize the number of worked and paid hours in relation to the units of service produced, and quickly bring labor expenditures in line with actual volumes and staffing goals.
