Streamline scheduling and put the right people where they’re needed most.
Creating meaningful schedules that meet the needs of your business and your people can be a complex, time-consuming, and downright frustrating task. With UKG Ready™ Scheduler (formerly Kronos Workforce Ready® Scheduler), automatically generate schedules that are the best fit for your organization and your budget. Our solution proactively builds schedule recommendations that are based on operational demand, required skills, compliance rules, and your people’s availability and preferences.
Make intelligent decisions
Scheduler gives you real-time visibility into accurate people data, budget constraints, and staffing demands. Enable managers to make intelligent staffing decisions on the fly and build schedules that meet the needs of your people and your business.
Minimize compliance risks
Scheduler automatically identifies your people based on predefined criteria so you can assign the right person to each shift. You’re automatically notified if scheduling actions violate established rules so you can make changes and maintain compliance.
Empower your people
Self-service tools empower your people to be more autonomous while making the scheduling process more transparent. With UKG Ready, your people can pick up open shifts based on their qualifications and get notified whenever a new schedule is posted — all from a desktop or mobile device.
