The support I have received from Timesphere is over and above what I have experienced elsewhere. They were always able to solve my problems with a phone call or an email - such as "no valid context" issues, flex time banks, creating crews and workshift groups.

Pros
The possibilities/options that can be added.

Cons
Not very user-friendly and very complicated to create a crew and/or workshift group from start to finish.

Response from Timesphere


First, we wish to thank you for taking the time to give us your comments and a 5 stars overall rating!

We agree with you that Timesphere's possibilities are very wide and that's why it is the most suitable for complex scheduling such as Via Rail's.

Regarding the difficulties which you seem to have experienced while 'creating a crew/workshift group', we're aware that this happened before with an earlier version of our software. Therefore, we invite you to contact us whenever you're ready to upgrade to our completely overhauled version.

Again, we're most grateful for your taking the time to give us feedback and let us know if we can help you with something else!

Pros
From the manager perspective, timesphere save a lot of time. There is less manual interventions and a lower risk of errors. It's available from everywhere via internet for the administrator as well as the employees. Consultation is easy and once you understand how it works, making long term change in the database is fast. It's easy to retrieve information. The transition to timepshere was smooth and all of our employees, including the ones not so familiar with computers, had no problem adapting to it.

Cons
At first, manipulating individual work shift was uneasy and not very intuitive. However, the new versions have greatly improve this area. There are limits to what timesphere can do to help us automatize the most of our replacement operations. The bidding system works well, but is limited to replacement known before it starts. Timesphere is a nice solution, but cannot cover fully our last minute needs.

Response from Timesphere


We've been very happy to read your comments and we thank you for them!

We agree with you that being able to see all employees on a single screen is a most useful feature of our product : )
