SumTotal Workforce Management


Deploy the right people for the job at the right time and cost.

SumTotal Scheduling makes the constant drive to do more with less possible. Integrate your schedule with learning, talent, and corporate goals to make your workforce a strategic advantage. Complete automation and self-service ensures that only available, qualified, and skilled employees are on the schedule.
