Best Workforce Management Software of 2023

Looking for Workforce Management Software

When evaluating the best workforce management software for your organization, give special consideration to the following factors.

Compatibility and Integrations: Compatibility with existing systems or software is a crucial consideration when selecting the best workforce management software. Ensuring that the chosen solution seamlessly integrates with your current apps and software stack not only simplifies implementation but also maximizes efficiency.

Compatibility enables data sharing and reduces the need for duplicate data entry, minimizing errors and streamlining workflows. It’s vital to maintain productivity and prevent disruptions, making compatibility an important factor in the decision-making process. Laia Quintana, Head of Marketing and Sales at TeamUp explains how the right software is “not just limited to the HR and operations teams who use it for scheduling, time tracking, and leave management. [TeamUp’s] marketing team, for instance, uses it extensively for content creation and approval processes.”

Scalability: Accommodating future growth is essential because businesses are dynamic and ever-evolving. Workforce management software should not only meet your current needs but also adapt to your organization’s growth. Scalability ensures that as your workforce expands, the software can handle increased data, hires, users, and more complex requirements with no costly transition to a new solution.

Ease of Use: A user-friendly interface is paramount for successful adoption and efficient operation. If the software is not intuitive and user-friendly, employees may struggle to navigate it, leading to reduced productivity and potential resistance to its use. A user-friendly interface reduces the learning curve and encourages staff to readily embrace the workforce system. It enhances overall workforce management effectiveness by making it accessible to a broader range of users within your organization.

Customer Support: Available customer support and technical help are vital for addressing issues and challenges that may arise during the software’s

Best Warehouse Management Software of 2023

Cloud-Based or Locally Installed: The WMS applications featured in this review are entirely cloud-based or are installed, hosted, and managed locally. In some cases, the software developer for specific WMS applications offers both options. Based on your company’s needs, choose which will be most beneficial.

“Whether to choose cloud-based or locally installed warehouse management software depends on the specific needs and preferences of a business,” says Kiran Mehra, co-founder and president of Goldspot Pens. “Cloud-based solutions offer advantages, such as accessibility from anywhere, automatic updates, and scalability. Locally installed systems provide greater control and security. It’s important to evaluate a business’s infrastructure, budget, and desired level of control before making this decision.”

Scalability and Flexibility: Choose software that can accommodate your current warehouse size and operations, but that offers room for future growth and customization.

“Choosing a WMS is a big decision, the kind of thing you want to get right the first time,” says Kenny William, senior director at Parts Town, which sells restaurant equipment parts. “You want your WMS to grow with your company for many years to come. You need to choose the right software to grow and change with your business and at the same time, find a reliable partner in the WMS vendor you work with.”

He adds that WMS software is essential for scaling. “If a company wants to grow and actually keep track of every unit, some kind of specialized WMS or inventory management software is needed.”

Integration Capabilities: Ensure the software can seamlessly integrate with your existing systems, such as e-commerce platforms, accounting software, CMS, and shipping carriers you work with.

Inventory Tracking Methods: Look for support for various inventory tracking methods, including batch, serial, lot tracking, and RFID,

Expend Integrates Visa Business Card Transactions Into Expense Management Platform

London-based Expend has integrated Visa Business Card transactions into its spend and expense management platform.

With this new Expend Card Connect feature, Visa Business Card debit and credit transactions can be passed into the Expend app in real time, streamlining the processing of business expenses, Expend said in a press release emailed to PYMNTS Tuesday (June 20).

“Expend Card Connect allows businesses to immediately see purchases made on any Visa Business Cards that are connected to Expend and approve them for filing into their company accounts,” Expend CEO Johnny Vowles said in the release.

This feature saves companies the time that would be spent processing expense purchases, eliminates the errors that can occur when data is input manually and gives companies real-time visibility of costs, according to the release.

“Expend Card Connect continues our mission to improve real-time visibility and zero-touch processing of personal expenses and answers a pressing customer need,” Vowles said in the release.

PYMNTS research has found that as recently as 2021, one-third of businesses were still managing their expenses with manual processes.

These processes required employees to fill out and submit paper forms and checks, required business partners to handle paper invoices and checks, and required the companies themselves to keep tabs on the multitude of forms and files, according to the “Corporate Spend Playbook,” a PYMNTS and Airbase collaboration.

The report also found that digitizing these paper-based processes can help rein in the inefficiencies that are inherent in these methods.

In another recent development in the spend and expense management space, Medius said June 7 that it plans to acquire Expensya to add Expensya’s artificial intelligence (AI)-powered, mobile-first employee spend management solutions to Medius’ accounts payable (AP) platform.

What Is Data Management, and How Do Businesses Use It?

Most modern businesses recognize the value of data and, for small businesses, this often means relying on reports generated within the individual software platforms they use for daily operations. However, there comes a time when unifying this data in a central, standardized source is desirable. To organize and secure this data effectively requires a process known as data management.

What is data management?

Data management is the process by which businesses gather, store, access and secure data from various business software solutions. Employing data management enables more efficient access to data analytics that offer insights that are needed to improve business operations and identify opportunities for improvement. By establishing a better framework to access the wide swaths of data that every business generates, companies can make more informed decisions and improve their ability to deliver valuable products and services to their customers.

“Data management involves multiple disparate functions and systems working together to move, organize and secure data such that it is accurate, precise, accessible and protected,” said Christopher Risher, managing director at 1Path.

In a modern business environment, virtually every piece of software collects data. So you’ll want to find: the best accounting software; a top customer relationship management (CRM) solution; highly rated point-of-sale software; the best credit card processing software, and so on for your needs. These systems feed a wide variety of data into the business, including customer data, financial data and more.

“Nowadays, every company has data, from the multinational giants of IT [information technology] to the small local breweries. Some data are sensitive, some are history, some can be used for future predictions, some for auditing and so on,” said Rosaria Silipo, head of data science evangelism at KNIME. “With so much data and so many different properties and usages, a different set of rules

Ways Management Information System Can Help To Boost Your Business

When a business owner starts a company, typically, the business owner or HR manager will recruit employees, sell products and services to customers, and pay the costs of running the company. However, there are some burning questions to consider: Is the business actually making a profit or generating revenue? Will the company account have enough funds to clear expenses? Do they have enough raw materials in stock to meet the current or upcoming demand for their products?

The business owner may be unable to answer these questions because he lacks a reporting mechanism that informs him of the things that are going on in the business. And this is where an MIS comes in.

What is a Management Information System?

While bookkeepers are hired to prepare the records of shareholders, lenders, and taxes, this type of information is however not really useful for managerial purposes.

A management information system offers the data that business executives need to understand how exactly their business is performing. An MIS collects information from various areas of an organization, including taxes, debts, expenses, document flows, accounts payable, accounts receivable, cash balances, profits, inventory control, sales and marketing, and human resources.
