Complex Scheduling, Around-the-Clock Shifts, City Pay Rules and FLSA Calculations to be Managed by City-Wide Time and Attendance System
PARSIPPANY, N.J., March 13 - CyberShift, a leading provider of global workforce management and expense management software and services, today announced that the City of High Point, North Carolina, has selected CyberShift's Workforce Management 3G suite of products as its new workforce management system.
High Point, North Carolina's International City(TM), is located in the state's Piedmont Triad region. The City provides its 95,000 residents with a wide variety of services such as fire, police, park rangers, water treatment and distribution, wastewater collection and treatment, and sanitation, as well as services typically provided only at a county level, such as 911 responders.
The 1,500 workers employed by the City, including approximately 550 fire and police employees, work around-the-clock shifts, 365 days a year. Many of them are mobile or work in multiple locations. Complex scheduling and disaster recovery requirements, coupled with city payroll rules and the legal obligation to deploy police and fire in a timely manner, necessitated a flexible system to address these demands. CyberShift's Workforce Management 3G solutions more than demonstrated the ability to provide that flexibility.
High Point's ERP Manager Tom Spencer explained, "We were in the process of replacing the City's financial management system, and it became clear that we absolutely needed to implement a time, attendance and workforce solution. The solution needed to be flexible enough to integrate with our HR and payroll systems, easily scaled to meet our changing needs and, most importantly, able to support our complex scheduling and payroll requirements."
"After an extensive review process, we determined that CyberShift's Workforce Management 3G solutions addressed all of our needs," Spencer said. "Ease-of-use and the capability to provide Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) calculations clinched the deal for us."
Director of Human Resources for City of High Point, John McCrary, stated, "Our City's mission statement charges us with serving as 'the catalyst for bringing together the community's human, economic and civic resources for the purpose of creating the single most livable, safe and prosperous community in America.' In an effort to fulfill this mission, CyberShift's 3G solution will enable our workforce to do what it does best - fight fires, protect and serve the community, and save more lives."
CyberShift's Workforce Management 3G Time and Attendance software solution fully automates pay rules, work rules and accrual rules and supports extended labor management requirements such as FLSA and leave management and exception time reporting. CyberShift's Workforce Management 3G dramatically reduces pay and work rule complexities and is easily configured to align with policies and governance requirements unique to each organization. Its Advanced Scheduling capability uses configurable optimization rules to provide unlimited flexibility in managing scheduling variations with "best practice" templates that reflect the organization's most efficient staffing models, eliminating both coverage gaps and overstaffing issues.
"CyberShift's Workforce Management solutions are designed to help complex public sector organizations like the City of High Point manage their workforce in the most efficient and cost-effective manner," said Robert E. Farina, CEO of CyberShift. "We are honored that the City of High Point selected CyberShift's innovative software solutions to optimize the productivity and performance of their workforce."
