WorkforceHub Simplifies Labor Management for Your Retail Clients

Apr 24, 2023

If you have retail clients, you know that no two are the same. Different products, business models, and target customers are just a few of the differences. But there is one common component; each business has employees to manage.

Retail Labor Management

At Swipeclock, we improve the way retail owners manage their teams. Regardless of the size of the business, our solution scales to fit. Moreover, since your clients pay one low price per employee per month, the pricing is flexible as well.

Our goal was to create an advanced platform that was simple, effective, and would work for small- to medium-sized retail businesses. We wanted to help them save money, reduce timekeeping errors, and avoid noncompliance.

Our roots are in time, attendance and scheduling. In fact, we’ve been a leader in the small business timekeeping market since 2001. WorkforceHub, our unified HR solution, is the culmination of two decades of labor management expertise. It provides an outstanding experience for retail owners, managers, employees and administrators. In addition, we continue to add features and keep our platform on the cutting edge of HR tech.

Automate Timekeeping Integrated With Payroll

As mentioned, WorkforceHub makes it effortless to track employee time and attendance. Employees can clock in with a web portal, hardware clock or mobile device. WorkforceHub captures employee hours and tracks them in real time. Because of this, employees and managers can always see employee hours up-to-date. In addition, you can tie work time to a location, manage time-off requests, and track certifications. Furthermore, managers can approve (virtual) timecards in bulk or run a deviation report to review those that deviate from the authorized schedule. When timecards are approved, the payroll manager can import the hours into the payroll software – no manual data entry required.

Employee Self-Service HR

Employees expect work software to be as easy to use as their favorite apps. And most people want to manage their accounts themselves. WorkforceHub provides a self-service experience on par with popular apps. With WorkforceHub, for example, employees can update their direct deposit, access their benefits info and see their pay stubs.

With WorkforceHub Employee Self-Service (ESS), employees can view their schedules, check their accrual balances and submit time-off requests. Indeed, empowerment boosts morale and productivity. In addition, it elevates employer brand.

Strategic Retail Employee Scheduling is Crucial

Because customers are always flowing in and out, and it’s essential to have employees to serve them. WorkforceHub transforms shift planning in several important ways.

Firstly, managers can create team schedules quickly by dragging and dropping employees into shifts on a calendar view. Secondly, they can build templates for workgroups or locations and copy them forward. Thirdly, employees can swap shifts on a virtual trade board, with manager moderation if needed. Lastly, WorkforceHub eliminates confusion by identifying when an employee is available to work. After entering shift preferences, it will alert the scheduler of a conflict if they attempt to add a shift to an unavailable employee. Managers that customize it can save time and ensure just-right coverage. In addition, companies improve retention when they accommodate schedule preferences. This is especially key for an industry that struggles with turnover.
