Updated Daily View of Advanced Workforce Scheduling

AMGtime Workforce Scheduling Daily View

Exciting news for all employers! AMGtime recently made new developments to its Advanced Workforce Scheduling. If your business requires ever-changing daily schedules, then this solution is for you. Gas stations, restaurants, and retail stores are a few operations that are constantly changing their schedules to fit employee’s availability and shifts needed for the day. That is why we made scheduling an even easier task for you to handle!

Within this simplified view of the Advanced Scheduling module, administrator can effortlessly modify work hours, lunch and breaks without creating shift groups. Simply drag or drop the shift to make quick adjustments. If that wasn’t convincing enough, the simplified scheduling feature can autosuggest qualifying employees for open shifts.

“I think it’s great that this feature provides flexibility with scheduling”, says our Technical Support Specialist, Brett Johnson. His clients can now create individualized schedules with ease and print schedules for employees to view working hours, breaks and lunch.

The daily view is just one capability included with the robust Advanced Workforce Scheduling module. AMGtime created Workforce Scheduling with employers in mind to assist in reducing labor costs and eliminating compliance risk. Employees can alleviate the stress of scheduling by setting availabilities and preferences. If allowed by employer/manager, employers can drop, swap or pick-up shifts with qualifying employees who meet training, skill and certification requirements. The auto-scheduling function generates schedules for you by zeroing in on the “Best Candidate” for the job. All changes and requests can be monitored on the customizable dashboard. Scheduling never looked so good.

AMGtime Updates Skilled Nursing Facility Module


Did you know last year Government Jerry Brown increased California’s Hours Per Patient Day (HPPD) ratio from 3.2 to 3.5?

Skilled Nursing Facilities throughout the country are required to submit Payroll-Based Journal (PBJ) data to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Many Nursing Facilities also need to track and report on Hours Per Patient Day. The state of California has updated their law requiring Skilled Nursing facilities to increase their base HPPD ratio to 3.5 from 3.2. In addition, 2.4 of those hours must be completed by Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA). State governments are increasingly requiring minimum HPPD ratios, with many states already implementing their own laws regarding this subject.

This is a great improvement to patient care but lengthens the process of calculating hours. To eliminate manual calculations, AMGtime provides the perfect solution for Skilled Nursing Facilities to automate the calculation of census and HPPD ratios to meet staffing requirements. The updated module also has the option of calculating CNA ratios. The Skilled Nursing Facility module includes several reports and an XML export with PBJ specifications.

AMGtime recently developed an add-on solution that will transform your standard Schlage HandPunch device into a smart device. Your HandPunch will transform into a wireless and real-time capable device, making workforce management much easier. Anyone can upgrade their device with just a small incremental fee.

This add-on will be a life-saver! Every transaction made by employees will be synchronized and displayed in real-time, allowing the option to view updated time cards as well as regular and overtime hours.

Another benefit of this feature is the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) support. This is ideal for companies (like Staffing Agencies) that need to lend devices to their clients.
