FAIR DUTY SCHEDULES


The right member of staff in the right place at the right time: IVU.crew supports the entire personnel dispatch process and ensures that all employees are where they need to be – whether that is driving a bus or operating a lifting platform in the workshop.

IVU.crew’s configurable rule system checks employee job allocations and reports conflicts

IVU.crew has the right tool for every work step, ranging from long-term roster layout and holiday planning to medium-term dispatch and short-term fleet management, right through to correct settlement and evaluation. The continuous flow of data ensures consistency. IVU.crew automatically transfers every change to the integrated payroll accounting function, whose flexible rule systems simplify performance evaluations.

All planning phases benefit from powerful optimisation algorithms. During the process of devising weekly schedules and roster layouts, IVU.crew calculates the optimal outcome based on operational requirements, be it a resilient duty schedule, satisfied employees, or efficient operations. Dispatch optimisation also takes into account employees’ preferences and qualifications, pays attention to restrictions, and ensures fair, balanced duties.

IVU.crew and IVU.pad are closely linked, with the mobile app keeping employees in the loop at all times. Key information such as duty schedules, manuals, and forms are at their fingertips. Whether it is holiday planning, duty requests, or changing shifts – digital dispatch speeds up workflows and ensures satisfied staff.
