Day & Zimmermann, one of America’s largest private companies with more than 24,000 employees, and a leading provider of high-end security forces, has gone live with the InTime Scheduling Engine (ISE) in its Security Services division. ISE is InTime’s next-generation employee scheduling and deployment solution built specifically for managing law enforcement, probation and security services. ISE is being rolled out in all Day & Zimmermann Security Services locations across the country, involving approximately 4,500 employees. The roll-out should be completed by early 2009.
“Day & Zimmermann’s Security Services division provides high-level security for such important national security sites as the Los Alamos National Laboratory and a number of military depots,” said Harry Dollard, president and CEO of InTime Solutions. “They need a highly reliable product that helps them manage their workforce fast and effectively, while also integrating with their SAP enterprise system. InTime’s Scheduling Engine achieves all that while providing them with a real-time, transparent-view window into their manpower costs.”
Managing overtime costs an important consideration
With multiple units, the Security Services division is rolling out ISE to its various locations throughout this year. SAP integration of payroll is a critical factor, as is the need to manage overtime costs. With 4,500 employees in the division, overtime can mount up quickly if not administered efficiently.
“We want to manage our overtime costs, as these can be a huge variable component,” said Anthony Bosco, who oversees 90 people in the company’s IT department in his role as Day & Zimmermann’s vice president and CIO. “InTime Scheduling enables us to automate our scheduling and quickly do what-if analyses to maximize shift coverage while minimizing our costs at the same time. It brings predictability to the management process, and that helps our operations run more smoothly and efficiently for our clients.”
Adds Michael Friess, the company’s senior director of application development and strategy, ”ISE integrates easily with SAP, enabling us to roll this out across all the security locations with confidence. The early implementation has gone smoothly and we expect that to continue until the last one is completed, probably by early in 2009.”
Built on an enterprise-class IT infrastructure, ISE has proven to be reliable and scalable for large deployments while also being able to work in smaller organizations. It is the powerful and proven law enforcement software tool that takes care of building, maintaining and controlling the scheduling of an organization’s workforce, no matter how large the organization or how the operation is run.
