MYOB is set to roll out a new solution designed to simplify and streamline workforce management for shift-based businesses, following its investment in workforce management platform, Roubler.

The upcoming release of the new workforce management attachment will provide mid-market businesses with the opportunity to combine their ERP, PS and WFM software under a single, seamless integrated cloud platform – MYOB Advanced.

As well as being available as an attachment to MYOB Advanced People, PayGlobal customers managing larger workforces can take advantage of the new solution and add it to their existing software. 

To fulfill growth potential and remain competitive, it’s more important than ever for employers to ensure they’re equipped with the right tools to manage ever-changing workforces, according to MYOB Enterprise head of product, Frank Feustel.

“Insights from the Australian Bureau of Statistics highlighted that nearly two-thirds (65%) of medium and large businesses planned to employ new staff in the first three months of this year – a trend high amongst those in shift-based industries such as accommodation, food services and manufacturing,” he said.

“While it’s heartening to see such positivity around hiring ambitions, the benefits of bringing new talent into a business can only be maximised when the whole process is managed well. There’s a kaleidoscope of moving parts to manage when it comes to hiring, onboarding and paying new employees and our solutions have been designed with business performance and local compliance requirements in mind.”

Capabilities offered through the new solution will see businesses create and automate rosters based on employee skills, onboard new starters quickly and easily, streamline timesheet approvals, and seamlessly manage workforces across multiple locations.

Expressions of interest for the new MYOB workforce management offering are now open for mid-market businesses with availability slated for early April.
