But remember, this is only the first start. In order, to fully realize the value of your purchase here are few steps to guide on your journey.

1.Assemble your Team

Make sure everyone who will be affected by the new system (and that includes; operational managers) are aware and ask them to start going through training material right away. If these individuals have employees that report to them, gauge their input and figure out how much training should be given to them.

2. Avoid Implementation Wrinkles

Make sure your managers are fully engaged during the implementation process. If, for example, the person assigned, as the company’s project lead is still focused on their full-time job, is not able to devote sufficient time to the project, this can lead to trouble down the road when they are not sure how to use the solution.

3. Make use of ATS Expertise

4. Implementation Times Vary and can Depend on Several Factors

Have a plan. Set out a reasonable implementation timeline and scope. Is your team dedicated to this project? If so, implementation will be shorter. If the project is another task on the ‘to do’ list, competing with other priorities, expect that your implementation may take more time. Do not underestimate the time and resources it will take to complete the project successfully.

5. Calculate your Return on Investment (ROI)

When you implement ATS TimeWorkOnDemand solution built from-the-ground-up you’ve made an excellent investment—for the short and long term.

Embracing Tech Buzz Words In The World Of HR

October 4th, 2018 | Posted by ATS in Artificial Intelligence | Cloud Computing | ERP | Google | HR | Labour Analytics | Time and Attendance Blog, Workforce Management Software - (Comments Off on Embracing Tech Buzz Words In The World Of HR)

If you are in HR, you are likely familiar with a variety of buzz words, especially, when it comes to technology and the many applications that are available in the market, to complement your business processes.

Below is a list of such buzz words that most if not all in HR, is familiar with by now. This list was first compiled by Sharlyn Lauby, of HR Bartender and regenerated by HumanResources Online.

Artificial intelligence (AI): From google maps to spam fillers, AI brings convenience and helps people fulfill their career ambitions. The future trend is to scale their efforts and bring consistency to their activities. Programming is out of the question, but HR leaders need to know enough to guide the conversation within employees and make the best decisions for the company.

Embracing Tech Buzz Words In The World Of HR

Boolean Search: This is a method for searching websites to limit the results by defining the relationships between key words. With all the new fancy search engines, fundamental tools such as Boolean Search can not be ignored by HR professionals. Google search is focused on recent results. Refining Boolean Search skills can quickly access information from any database of software. The must-know Boolean operators are SITE, INURL, AND, OR, NOT.

Machine Learning: Machine learning is quickly becoming an important data tool for HR professionals. What is it and how does it differ from artificial intelligence?

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) ERP is the successor of materials resource planning which is described as a combination of manufacturing, financial and materials management software functionality. Human resources, professional services and customer relationship management functions are added to ERP. ERP can go beyond the common benefits. It can use analytics to reduce workforce attrition, and therefore better target talent.

The Internet of Things (IoT): The Internet of Things – or IoT – is the latest technology term for HR pros. It’s all about connectivity but it’s much more than that.

Search engine optimization (SEO): SEO is a practice of improving the visibility and ranking of a website in the search engine. It is no longer only useful for marketing professionals. It is also crucial for HR professionals to minimise their talent acquisition efforts since more and more candidates are using major search engines for job searches. Mobile-optimised career microsites are becoming an important part of companies’ SEO strategies.

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS): SaaS is any software paid for through a subscription or licence rental that does not require one to download it onto a computer. SaaS is easily confused with the term “cloud”, which refers only to computing resources such as data storage, virtual servers or networks which are only accessible for the information technology departments.

In the end, some buzz words simply go out of fashion or are so over-used, that we get tired of them, and so just stop using them altogether.

By 2025 consumer attitudes towards retail will have dramatically changed. The rapid growth of robotics, cloud and artificial intelligence will permeate the retail and hospitality experience for both consumer and stakeholders.

There is a growing body evidence that shows that the adoption of; cloud computing, machine learning and artificial intelligence is on pace to grow exponentially over the next 10 years and beyond. And, yet there still some resistance to embrace this type of technology. Many of today’s leaders understand the difference between staying put or adapting to achieve business success.

Automation’s Biggest Enemy: Cultural Resistance is the title of an article published by Industry Week that delves into the resistance, which in turn, prevents some companies from adopting artificial intelligence and reaping its benefits. It reads in part;

“While customers perceive that artificial intelligence (AI) will allow brands to deliver what they want when they want it, there remains a widespread lack of understanding among enterprises of the potential benefits for AI to solve real-world business problems. The biggest corporate challenge to implementing an intelligent business strategy is cultural resistance (49%), according to a new research report, “AI2020: The Global State of Intelligent Enterprise” by IQPC’s Intelligent Automation Network.

What’s Behind The Resistance To Artificial Intelligence?

Some of today’s forward-thinking companies understand the power of cloud computing and its impact on cost containment and have embraced business applications— like time and attendance, that has embedded artificial intelligence. For example, ATS TimeWork OnDemand was expressly designed with this mind— this robust application will propel your business operations and help your company keep pace with advance in technology.

The Industry Week article goes on to say; “AI will automate some jobs, particularly the dirty, dangerous, or dull work that people don’t want to do – everything from sewer reconnaissance to repetitive factory work. The skills needed for future employment include critical thinking and problem solving, good communication and teamwork, leadership, initiative, creativity and the willingness to leverage the current technology”.

In other words, artificial intelligence is not here to replace your job— it will help you do your job better.

Do’s And Don’ts Of Office Email

July 31st, 2018 | Posted by ATS in Artificial Intelligence | Machine Learning | Workforce Analytics - (Comments Off on Do’s And Don’ts Of Office Email)

Texting has become the preferred method of correspondence with friends and family, over emails. And why not, texting is quicker. Email, however, still reigns supreme in the corporate world so make sure you reserve those quirky jokes and smiley faces for the people with whom you have personal relationships with, like friends and family. Your work colleagues and especially, your boss might not take kindly to the same writing style you use in your personal texts when you are communicating with them.

Do’s And Don’ts Of Office Email

Here are a few email tips from Dawn Rosenberg McKay from an article titled 6 Rules for Email Etiquette in the Workplace:

  1. Mind Your Manners

Even in a world where we are rushing to get things done as quickly as possible in order to move on to the next task, take the time to use good manners in your email. Don’t neglect to say “please” and “thank you.”

  1. Watch Your Tone

Tone is how you, as a writer, can express your attitude in an email message. It influences how it is received. You usually want to make sure to come across to the recipient as respectful, friendly, and approachable. You don’t want to sound curt or demanding. Reread your message several times before hitting send.

When writing to someone with whom you’ve communicated before, begin by saying something friendly like “I hope you are well.” While emojis may help you convey tone more easily, refrain from using them in professional email unless you are writing to someone with whom you have a very informal relationship. Never use them when writing to a prospective employer.

  1. Be Concise

Busy people have neither the time nor inclination, to spend more than a minute reading an individual email. If you want to allow your recipient to read your message quickly, and still understand it, you must keep it brief.

Don’t leave out pertinent details, however. Make sure your message clearly conveys your reason for writing it in the first place. Nobody saves time if you end up having a back and forth while you try to explain the details you omitted.

  1. Avoid Using Texting Abbreviations

Even though you want to save time, you shouldn’t use texting abbreviations in your professional email. If you text a lot, as many people do, you may be accustomed to using a sort of shorthand to speak to your friends. For example, you may use “u,” “ur,” and “plz” instead of “you,” “your,” and “please.” These abbreviations have no place in business correspondence, unless the recipient is someone with whom you have a casual relationship.

  1. Use a Professional Email Address

For messages related to your current job, always use the email address your employer assigned to you. However, you should never use it to send messages that are unrelated to your job, for example, if you are looking for a new one. Use a personal email account instead.

  1. Don’t Forget Spelling and Grammar Count

It is imperative that you proofread your email carefully. Never neglect this critical step, no matter how busy you are. The things you want to be attentive to are correct spelling and proper grammar. In addition to spelling common words correctly, you also want to spell people’s names right, including that of your recipient and the name of his or her company.

Bottom line
In the era of the Internet, artificial intelligence, machine learning, analytics, cool automated business software and access to a dizzying array of mobile apps, the corporate world is conservative, and, how you communicate in that setting has to remain professional, because you never know who may intercept your mail. After all, when your work emails are professional, it’s less likely to put your company at risk.

Keep current with ATS:

Today’s smartphones are probably far more superior and advanced, than desktop computers of 17 years ago. Technology, including cloud computing, has removed the barriers of time and distance, with lightning speed.

What Does 21st Century Workforce Management Solution Look Like?

Automation has also helped increase the accuracy in the workplace as roles that require physical and mental concentration have a lower likelihood of human error. This however, has not eradicated the need for human engagement to scrutinize the results of automated business processes. However, automating something like employee time and attendance will significantly reduce the amount of routine work so resources can be allocated to perform other important tasks within the organization.

ATS Workforce Management Solution encompasses all the trappings of a Human Capital Management suite with embedded analytics, easy-to-use management dashboards-that are designed to help companies reduce administrative tasks, and remain compliant.

So, what are the benefits? We’ll keep it simple. With ATS Workforce Management Solution, your company will have the ability to:

  • Improve insight into what’s driving your human capital costs and optimize employee scheduling.
  • Gain access to analytics and reporting to review and measure.
  • Streamline your processes and lower your total cost of ownership with a unified system.

To learn why so many companies choose ATS Workforce Management Solution, you can download a demonstration or register for one of our bi-monthly webcasts. And, to speak to a representative call; 866.294-2467.

Today, on your mobile device, you can order food, pay for movie or concert tickets and even change the temperature on your house thermostat. And, if your phone has the right application installed, you can ask business related questions, specific, to your company, and have the system understand your requests and anticipate your questions based on self-learning. When morphed together, that’s machine learning and analytics, at its core and, that in and of itself, is part of the future.

Machine Learning and Analytics Applications Can Accelerate Your Business

 

Modern and data-savvy business executives with their eye on achieving operational excellence want, up to the minute information and, also want to ensure that their departmental managers are not tethered to rigid applications.
