Rooster Planning Tools Conference and WFM Congress: New Version InVision Enterprise WFM 4.6.0

At the Rooster & Planning Tools conference and at this year’s WFM congress, InVision Software, a world-leading supplier of solutions for enterprise-wide workforce management (WFM), presents the new release of its software solution InVision Enterprise WFM. In addition to the new modules HolidayManager and JobProcessor, version 4.6.0 offers several enhancements and customisations, which make the software tool for optimised employee scheduling even more powerful and user-friendly. The Rooster & Planning Tools conference opens its doors on 30th September at the Dekker conference centre in Zoetermeer (The Netherlands) and the WFM congress takes place on 2nd October at the KNVB Hotel in Zeist (The Netherlands).

Visitors to InVision’s stands can find out first-hand about the new features of release 4.6.0 of InVision Enterprise WFM. 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.

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.
