Optimize Schedules to Meet Current and Future Demands

Deploy the Right People for the Job at the Right Time and Cost.

SumTotal Scheduling makes it possible to do more with less. Integrate your schedule with learning requirements, talent and employee data, and corporate goals to make your workforce a strategic advantage. Automation and self-service scheduling streamlines employees to a roster and ensures that only available, qualified, and properly skilled employees are scheduled.

  • Validate that employees are available, trained, and have the proper compliance requirements prior to being scheduled to a roster.
