Reason for the Change
Fourth has been working on a new version of Labour Productivity, to provide a solution for a non-revenue based labour model - this will be called 'Activity-Based Scheduling'. Renaming the standard Labour Productivity module to 'Scheduling' will help to streamline and simplify the nomenclature of this key Fourth product.
To find out more about Activity-Based Scheduling please liaise with your Fourth contact.
The change in name for the module will mean that the following names will now be used when referencing the different scheduling options:
- Labour-Based Scheduling (LBS) - formally known as 'Advanced Schedules'
- Revenue-Based Scheduling (RBS) - formally known as 'Labour Productivity'
- Activity-Based Scheduling (ABS) - formally known as 'LP for Hotels & Demand Scheduling'
Please see WFM: Scheduling Options Explained for more information.
All customers using the Labour Productivity module.
