LAS VEGAS (August 30, 2016) – WorkForce Software® announced today at SuccessConnect 2016 the expansion of the company’s global reseller agreement with SAP (NYSE: SAP) to include forecasting and scheduling optimization.

The arrangement enhances WorkForce Software’s existing reseller agreement with SAP, announced last year. As part of the agreement, SAP will resell the WorkForce Software solution as SAP® Workforce Forecasting and Scheduling by WorkForce Software. Available now, the solution empowers customers to forecast demand-based scheduling needs using multiple data sources, including traffic analytics and point-of-sale systems. Coupled with the ability to incorporate employee scheduling preferences, the solution helps employers more quickly and easily create optimized, employee-friendly schedules.

“There’s tremendous excitement in continuing to expand our agreement with SAP,” said WorkForce Software CEO Mike Morini. “This next-generation technology makes it easy for employers to tee up their best performers to drive revenue during the hours most critical to their business.”

Designed to give centralized headquarters complete visibility across all locations, the solution’s flexible, mobile self-service options allow employees to indicate availability, work across multiple stores and access their schedules weeks in advance. This gives employers the ability to digitize complex scheduling processes while making fair practices transparent to workers.

“Employers are looking for new ways to empower their workforce,” Morini added. “This forecasting and scheduling optimization solution allows employees to have a say in their own schedules. They can indicate availability, swap shifts and take on additional hours when they want to earn more. With that flexibility, employees are happier and more engaged. By optimizing scheduling to meet critical business needs and take employee preferences into account, the solution empowers employers to retain top talent and maximize the return on their investment.”

“Employee satisfaction is a top issue for HR across all industries, no less so for employers with a high concentration of hourly workers,” said SAP SuccessFactors President Mike Ettling. “With variable demand in the mix, forecasting plays an even larger role in both managing costs and ensuring all employees are all in. Adding this solution as part of our HCM suite brings integrated core data to customers to help simplify forecasting and improve scheduling, which is critical for industries like retail and hospitality.”
