New Version 4.6.0 of the Workforce Management Solution InVision Enterprise WFM

  • With New Modules and Several Enhancements Using the Programme is Easier Than Ever

As of June 2008, InVision Software, one of the international leaders and providers of solutions for company-wide workforce management, now offers version 4.6.0 of the software solution InVision Enterprise WFM. In addition to two new modules, version 4.6.0 offers several enhancements and customisations, which make the software tool for optimised employee scheduling even more powerful and user-friendly.

New modules: HolidayManager and JobProcessor

With the new HolidayManager from InVision Enterprise WFM, users can schedule long-term absences as well as yearly vacation time, allowing for optimisation of vacation allotment with the help of the forecasted requirement. In addition, absence quotas can be displayed using HolidayManager, which employees can view using the Infothek Interactive Schedule module. And what’s more, HolidayManager simplifies the process of determining vacation periods.

The new JobProcessor module increases system performance by allowing optimisation processes to run in particular time slots or on free servers. Actions that use up a great deal of a computer’s resources can be delegated to free servers within a specific time frame, using JobProcessor. That way, this new module lightens the load on both the InVision Enterprise Server and the InVision HTTP Server. This yields much higher software performance.

Focus on ease of use and saving time

Aside from these new features, version 4.6.0 offers a multitude of customisations and enhancements for common functions, which make working with InVision Enterprise WFM even easier. An array of new functions has been added to the time management modules to make editing punches and time accounts more effective.

These new features include the employee filter and master data criteria functions: the employee filter allows you to create individual employee lists using various master data criteria. Once each filter is saved, you can always go back to it using a drop-down list in the menu. That way, the user gains quick access to the employee groups often needed for creating and editing schedules. Thanks to the mass update function, you can modify master data across entire employee groups. You no longer have to change each employee data set individually when making general contract adjustments that apply to an entire planning unit; it can now be performed in one step with mass updating.
