Getting the right staff in the right place at the right time

Managing complex staff schedules can be an absolute headache - Budget airline Ryanair’s management team found this out the hard way earlier this month.  The spiralling situation over staff rotas led to the announcement to cancel up to 50 flights per day over six weeks and a complete PR disaster ensued.  In the mobile FM sector, being confident that you can get the right people in the right places at the right time is crucial. Having full, real-time visibility of staff attendance and punctuality is key to implementing and managing complicated staff scheduling.

At Ezitracker we’ve been providing reliable remote workforce monitoring solutions to the commercial cleaning and facilities management industry for almost 20 years. In that time, our solutions have been instrumental in helping our customers achieve significant reductions in their; wage bill – by only paying staff for hours worked. In their administration time and costs – no manual checking of paper timesheets and inputting information into payroll. In their time and pay discrepancies – evidence of actual hours worked versus planned at your fingertips.  Ezitracker is the market-leading remote workforce management service used by Facilities Management providers, cleaning companies and other organisations that employ large numbers of remote working staff.  Ezitracker is currently trusted by over 80,000 users worldwide.

Our robust, fully scalable solutions have been developed around a stable platform with facilities management in mind. As our service is web-based, there’s no capital outlay, it’s easy to implement and extremely cost effective, as you only pay for what you use.  Attendance can be verified in real-time thus eliminating timesheets.
