“Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.” Albert Einstein
It is with great joy and pride that we say SumTotal entered the Leader quadrant in the Nucleus WFM Value Matrix 2017; a feat that was in no small part accomplished by the fact that the new features in our SumTotal Talent Expansion Suite make us the first in the industry to bring workforce management, talent, learning, and recruitment all together into one platform.
And it is this that we are most proud of – because it is our goal to be of value to our customers and this news means we are doing this.
Firstly, our SumTotal Workforce Management covers time and attendance, scheduling, absence, and leave management, giving customers the ability to conduct predictive analyses and develop workforce models, and individual managers can benefit from a holistic, real-time view of data from within their system. Additionally, our SumTotal Core Platform provides a virtual system of record and combines SumTotal-originating data with data from any other system it integrates with to unify Workforce Management.
And how is this of value to you?
Well here’s just a sample.
- Job/role-based scheduling which provides greater flexibility to accommodate employees’ schedules.
- Occurrence tracking means employers can now track and auto-send warnings and communicate demerits to employees; it also helps eliminate supervisory biases, and even auto-generate messages prompted by positive events, too.
- Our time and attendance solution can handle a high level of complexity in absence and leave management. Now an employer can get very detailed cost center position tracking, like say for example an airline manufacturer can look back and figure out who drilled any given rivet, and when.
- Our time clocks, which cost approximately two-thirds the price of competitors’ devices, don’t force users to return to a kiosk to complete self-service actions such as absence requests.
Secondly, regardless which Workforce Management deployment model a customer chooses – SaaS-delivered via multi-tenant cloud; privately hosted in SumTotal, or on-premise, they all have access to our latest releases with new features and enhancements which, as indicated by Nucleus, is unique among vendors in this year’s WFM Value Matrix.
Because our suite is multi-tenant ready, it is possible to use the tenant model in either private cloud or on-premise to facilitate a distributed enterprise. Again, the value here is that an organization may want to have each of their business units/countries/subsidiaries in a single tenant, yet still share the same consolidated deployment. Now you can have a rapid deployment model as the initial tenant rollout, which can then be template and deployed to additional tenants delivering maximum administrative and control for each business unit/country.
And we aren’t finished. Our latest release includes even more upgrades including a new user portal, fully integrated shift trading capabilities, standardized archiving, and a major upgrade in our advanced reporting.
We will continue to strive to succeed and provide the best value to our customers. To learn more, please download Nucleus Report’s latest WFM Value Matrix.
