Re-Imagine your Scheduling Process to be Agile

Tuesday Nov 3, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM EDT — Recording

We have seen what the pandemic can do to the forecasting and scheduling processes, creating disruption in forecast accuracy and turning the schedule generation into a guessing game. While some companies are normalizing to pre pandemic levels we now know that we need more agile and adaptable solutions that can immediately react to change. 

This session will focus on how you can use simulations and automation to create a workforce environment where the scheduling process can account for most variables, but still be agile enough to still work in a customer environment that is dynamic.
