San Diego, Calif. July 6, 2016 — ShiftHound, the leading provider of cloud-based Staff Scheduling Software, delivers version 5.2 of its unrivaled online Scheduling and Open Shift Management (OSM) application. “Our main priority with this new release is to support our clients in the management of overtime costs and the risks associated with fatigue,” says ShiftHound’s President and Founder, Ian Chaplin.
With version 5.2 the Avoidable Overtime functionality goes beyond identifying overtime situations; it provides a solution to the overtime. When a shift is going to result in overtime, the user is alerted and has the option to find a replacement. With one click, a list is presented of qualified staff that can be assigned without being in overtime, making it very easy to avoid overtime with a slight adjustment to the schedule.
