As your company grows, so does the headache of managing your employees. This could involve a myriad of different activities: scheduling shifts to ensure busy times of year are covered, recording absences, tracking leave, budgeting for salary, and task management to name just a few.

If you’ve yet to move your workforce management solution to the cloud, you’re not alone. A Gartner survey shows that workforce management has the slowest SaaS adoption rates of all segments of human resource software, with only 16% having moved to the public cloud.

However, a cloud-based solution offers many benefits to help you manage your workforce, including speed of implementation, ease of use, a more intuitive solution, less burden and dependence on IT, and more predictable pricing.
