ARCOS Resource Management solutions automate the process of filling open shifts – all while adhering to your union agreements or business rules.
FOCUS ON PRODUCTIVITY & SAFETY – NOT PHONE CALLS AND SPREADSHEETS
ARCOS is specifically designed to help organizations manage their most important resources – their employees. Using ARCOS, companies reduce the time it takes to find and fill open shifts from hours to just minutes. Employees receive notifications for open shifts they are eligible for and can quickly respond. With this technology, you can automate tedious manual shift bidding and even enable employees to trade shifts with built-in business rules to manage compliance. From shift management on a daily basis to emergency response, we can help you automate manual processes that take up too much time, help you empower your employees, and ensure your employees are focused on safety and productivity.

CASE STUDY: Piedmont Airlines, Inc.
Automated Scheduling Helps Piedmont Profit From the Ground Up
When Brian Wemple, director of Planning and Support for regional air carrier Piedmont Airlines, Inc., first came to his current role several years ago, he says, “We were looking to take a new step with scheduling.” According to Wemple, there wasn’t a system-level way to do shift scheduling, run reports and know how many hours the airline’s regional stations were using. The steps involved in creating a suggested shift schedule for ground handling workers wasn’t automated.
See how we helped one of our nation’s critical infrastructure companies solve their shift management challenges and digitize their manual processes by implementing ARCOS RosterApps systemwide.
