SwipeClock LLC helps assisted living facility put an end to scheduling conflicts, cover gaps, and boost quality while raising staff member morale.
Suncrest Assisted Living management was worrying about maintaining quality resident care because they had to address a frequent cascade of scheduling changes. Every schedule change launched a stream of unproductive emails, texts, and phone calls that wasted time, confused staff members, and hindered productivity for days at a time.
Suncrest Assisted Living has a labor force of 23 including on-site nurses and caretakers, aides, administrative staff, and housekeeping workers. A small on-site labor force means schedules aren’t very flexible and have little room to absorb change, which takes place often.
Unplanned schedule changes generated a time-consuming process of sending emails and texts to all qualified team members to find a replacement. Managers were often required to coordinate fractional shift changes to accommodate overlapping availabilities. The result was a domino effect that caused unexpected consequences including costly overtime and coverage gaps. The extra burden, added confusion, and personal disruption was taking a toll.

Searching for a solution, Suncrest turned to Workforce Management Suite. Workforce Management Suite delivers simplified scheduling with TimeSimplicity in a powerful suite of integrated cloud-based tools that include time and attendance tracking (TimeWorksPlus), with mobile capability for 24/7 anywhere access.

Suncrest needed a simple solution that supervisors and other staff members could use without the need for a lot of additional training. TimeSimplicity delivered exactly that, with the additional power of drag-and-drop scheduling, simple schedule change management, and staff member self-help tools that empower associates to solve scheduling complications with ease.
With Workforce Management Suite, Suncrest was able to set up their scheduling in about fifteen minutes by recording each employee name, job code, and availability. Once that was done, formulating staff member schedules became a quick matter of drag-and-drop. Scheduling conflicts, unexpected overtime, and adequate shift coverage are no longer an issue with built-in notifications that warn managers before a problem happens.
When it comes to finding help due to schedule changes, the Suncrest team no longer goes into panic mode; associates can enter their availability to pick up hours, and swapping shifts between team members is as simple as trading cards. Managers only need to confirm swaps for stress-free schedule changes.
One of the most appreciated features for Suncrest is the ability to empower staff members with mobile access. With the Employee Self Service (ESS) portal, staff members are able to view their schedule, request time off, monitor accruals, and review their time cards. They no longer need to call a manager for basic information and time card accuracy has improved significantly. This is a perfect solution for a community of associates working all hours of the day and a real timesaver for managers.
PBJ Made Easy
All long-term care facilities are now subject to the Payroll Based Journaling (PBJ) standards. Employers are required to track daily employee shift hours by job description and site as well as staff tenure and turnover. Suncrest uses the built-in Payroll Based Journaling (PBJ) tools in Workforce Management Suite to efficiently track the data and prepare accurate reports. Suncrest managers are sleeping better at night knowing that PBJ compliance is automated with SwipeClock LLC Workforce Management Suite.
