The Business Case for Workforce Management: How One Hospital Saved Money and Improved Scheduling with Infor WFM

Infor Workforce Management allows organizations to realize the full value of their ERP solution. Any Human Capital Management solution that doesn't include Workforce Management is, quite simply, not a complete solution. Modern HCM includes staffing and scheduling and the ability to tie it to compliance and finance. When integrated with the core pillars of ERP, supply chain, finance, and human capital management, WFM fosters improved communication across the business, as well as data capture and quality.

The unified approach results in a more robust and secure time and labor system that complies with local and federal laws, the ability to staff the right people with the right skills in the right roles, and increase employee satisfaction, resulting in lower turnover. It also reduces cost and the need for multiple integrations.

The health system partnered with Avaap to implement Infor WFM, including time and attendance, demand-driven scheduling, workforce scheduling, and absence management tools. The implementation kicked off­ in early first quarter, and the organization was live on the new system by summer. In addition to an on-time go-live, the project also came in on-budget.

While the CFO was concerned about integration with payroll, the implementation did not require any rework of the payroll system, since the health system was already operating Infor and the modules are designed to work together. This resulted in quicker deployment and minimal interruption to business operations.
