Companies are currently facing the challenges of highly fluctuating demand, peaks in online trade and new business models. Employees on the other hand are facing the challenges of home schooling, reduced opening hours and curfews. The demand for flexibility in logistic centres has never before been as great as it is right now.
But how can logistic centres offer the needed flexibility? We offer a great solution for this dilemma: the redPILOT teamAPP.
Following features offer new opportunities:
- Flexible scheduling process: full integration of employees
In the past, rigid shift models with 8-hour shifts were the norm, whereas today employees can organise their time flexibly (e.g. 8 hours on Mondays, 4 hours on Tuesdays, 6 hours Wednesdays). They simply need to enter the times they are available in teamAPP. The redPILOT system takes the entries into account automatically. This increases their flexibility and autonomy, which in turn leads to higher employee satisfaction.
- Online shift plan: available at all times
Printing and hanging up shift plans is a thing of the past. The shift supervisor creates a plan in the redPILOT Operational Excellence PLANNER and publishes it with one click. The employees can check their shift plans at any time and from any location using teamAPP. What’s more, the app provides data security as every employee can only view their own shifts.
- Absence management: fast, easy, clear
Employees can request or enter holidays, sick leave and training courses directly in teamAPP. All the data is transmitted automatically to the system through the interface to the redPILOT application. This saves time during scheduling and provides a clear overview.
- Shift change assistant: online request and assignment
The employees themselves can request a change of shifts online in teamAPP. All colleagues with the requested skills and available times will then receive a message. If someone accepts the shift change without compromising performance or causing any additional costs, the shift supervisor no longer needs to approve it.
- Automatic job rotation: conserve workers’ energy
Strenuous and tiring work is assigned to workers alternately. This ensures that employees can stay fit for work.
teamAPP not only provides employees with more flexibility, but also gives them a voice in planning. Moreover, the interface to the redPILOT PLANNER module enables the shift plans to be created and changed automatically. This saves a great deal of time and makes work easier for both employees and the warehouse manager. The main advantage lies in the needs-based planning process which follows specific rules and transparently assigns workers based on their skills and availability, while optimising costs.
