New Add-in Quickly Creates Shift Patterns with Excel® Spreadsheets, Eliminating Programming and Analysis Hassles.
LONDON, United Kingdom February 13, 2013. Intellicate Ltd, developer of Workforce Scheduling software, is now shipping Schedule24™ Excel® Add-in, their new automatic shift pattern generator for Microsoft® Excel®.
“We feel Schedule24 Excel Add-in is a breakthrough for workforce analysts and consultants using Excel spreadsheets.” said Timothy L. Mills COO of Intellicate Ltd. “It manages the complexity of shift pattern design in the familiar surroundings of Excel, enabling multiple shift patterns to be explored discovered and analysed in a fraction of the time it takes to even think about doing just one of those tasks manually.”
Schedule24 Excel® Add-in has been designed with consultants, business analysts, operations and HR Managers in mind to deliver insight into the most complex shift pattern solutions. Schedule24 Excel Add-in requires no scripting, and definitely no programming, to generate shift patterns for 24 and extended hours working. It also incorporates chronobio control enabling rotating shift patterns to be tuned to the body’s circadian rhythms making it unique for analysts and consultants to offer solutions that significantly reduce fatigue and risk in the workplace.
The Schedule24 Excel® Add-in goal is always to deliver a staff supply matched to a business demand, whether a ‘Flat’ supply for production lines or ‘Variable’ supply for fluctuating retail trends. Multiple shift pattern solutions can be explored using the same dataset, and displayed across multiple spreadsheets. Re-keying of data is eliminated. If you have a different dataset simply open a new Excel® work book and launch Schedule24 Excel® Add-in again. No limits.
“Intellicate have been providing comprehensive staff scheduling solutions for over 20 years; and our shift pattern ‘know-how’ is now available for Excel® without users having to sacrifice their favorite environment” said Tim Mills. “There has been a strong trend away from traditional working toward longer hours, to deliver services and products in a global economy — shift patterns are the key to successful business operations.”
