Introduction:

Automatic employee scheduling can dramatically improve the efficiency of businesses and organizations. At present, the majority of organizations worldwide, especially large ones, use manual scheduling.

Mathematically speaking, automatic employee scheduling of large numbers of employees, is known to be extremely complicated. As a result, automatic solutions are available only for small numbers of employees, typically 10 - 40 employees.

Number of Employees and Roles:

Usually when an application claims to be able to automatically create schedules more than 10 - 40 employees, it does so by combining the results of two or more separate schedules for two or more different roles. As a result, when two competing applications are compared, both applications must use the same number of roles. A better way to accomplish this would be to let the applications schedule the same group of employees using a single role!

Constraints:

The complexity of automatic employee scheduling is further increased when employee constraints are introduced. A successful automatic scheduling solution should be able to handle as many constraints as possible. An additional important parameter for a successful scheduling solution is speed.

Sched4u:

Recently a major breakthrough in the field of automatic employee scheduling was made at Controlnet Ltd, a company located at Omer industrial park in Israel and the owner of the present website. An automatic scheduling product called Sched4u has been created. Sched4u can automatically create schedules including constraints for groups as large as 2000 employees and more; a real revolution in the field!

Example:

Sched4u can easily create a weekly schedule for a group of 2200 employees, in which 1800 employees have the same role, whereas the other 400 employees have other role categories!


Advantages of Sched4u:

Sched4u is sophisticated employee scheduling software that can create advanced high quality schedules for a large volume of employees.

With a very high certainty, Sched4u is the best Automatic Employee Scheduling software that exists today worldwide, as far as the following parameters are considered:
