Labor forecasting software is a function of workforce management that uses AI and machine learning to accurately match staffing levels to predicted customer demand.
The first step is to create an accurate forecast for demand using historical data, economic trends, and external patterns. From there, a labor demand model is created that determines the optimal ratio of staff needed to meet the predicted demand. This labor model is then applied to the scheduling process, automatically building out a schedule that prevents inefficiencies like overstaffing, understaffing, and much more.
Demand forecasting works by feeding both customer data (sales, orders, transactions, etc.) and external data (weather, holidays, events, etc.) into mathematical models. These models then learn the relationship between variables to create demand predictions.
You can avoid persistent understaffing by using AI labor forecasting to map staffing levels to predicted demand. By knowing four weeks out what your expected sales are every day and for every shift, it’s easy to ensure the right number of employees are working at the right times.
It absolutely does. Labor forecasting uses machine learning to match staffing levels to predicted demand, helping you create highly efficient schedules. This means you’ll never accidentally go over an employee’s maximum hours or incur unnecessary overtime hours.
The goal of labor forecasting software is to save your administrative workers time and enhance your frontline decision making. Workforce.com’s forecasting does all the legwork for you, featuring advanced AI functionality that generates predictions and models forecasts in minutes.
Scheduling becomes faster, more accurate, and more efficient when paired with labor forecasting. Accurate forecasts eliminate uncertainty in the scheduling process, drilling down exactly how many and what kind of employees are needed to meet predicted demand. By integrating labor forecasting with your employee scheduling software, you can automatically build and populate a schedule based on your forecasted demand and labor model.
