This article covers how an Owner, Admin or Manager can view the rostering trends graphs from the RosterElf iOS and Android Apps and why these graphs are helpful.
Once you log in to the RosterElf smartphone app for iOS or Android, the first section in the Dashboard menu is "Trends".
The Trends section of the app shows a simple graph with data on rostered hours, average pay rate and labour cost over the last six weeks.
The core aim is to help managers get a helicopter view of labour-related costs to tweak and adjust weekly to stay within budget.
Rostered Hours Per Week
The first filter available on the roster trends report on the app is "Rostered Hours Per Week".
This view displays an overview of the total hours rostered across all sites over the last six weeks.
The green bar indicates the current week, so you know exacting how things are tracking.
Average Pay-Rate Per Week
The second filter available on the roster trends report on the app is "Average Pay Rate Per Week".
This report gives managers a snapshot of the average hourly cost of employees rostered week by week across all sites.
If you notice that your average pay rate is climbing, it could be an excellent time to hire some more junior employees or carefully review future rosters to ensure the right mix of staff are rostered on to work.
Estimate Labour Cost Per Week
The third and filter option on this Trends section displays an "Estimated Labour Cost per Week" graph over the last six weeks.
This statistic is based on pay rate and award interpretation data added into your RosterElf account, so the more accurate your pay rate information is, the more powerful and valuable this view will be.
