Workforce Management Software Overview

What is Workforce Management (WFM) Software?

Workforce Management Software is concerned with scheduling and tracking the workforce. The goal is to distribute and allocate workers in the most effective and efficient way. This is particularly important for organizations with shift workers, such as contact centers and service businesses.

WFM Software Features & Capabilities

Key features and capabilities include:

  • Time and attendance tracking

  • Labor scheduling

  • Compliance monitoring (e.g. with labor laws)

  • Leave management

  • Staffing optimization


Sometimes WFM software includes payroll functionality.

Specialized WFM vs. HCM Suites

Some platforms in this category are point solutions that focus on scheduling, regulations, and staff optimization. Others are broader Human Capital Management (HCM) suites with strong workforce management capabilities, such as Kronos Workforce Ready and Workforce Central, UltiPro, and Ceridian Dayforce HCM. Ultipro and Dayforce HCM began life as payroll solutions and expanded from there. The Kronos product family started as a time tracking solution—a typical trajectory for WFM software.

Industry Specialization

Many products in this category are geared toward a certain type of employee or industry, such as contingent or hourly workforces, call centers or service industries. Other products, like Kronos Workforce Ready, aim to serve large enterprises with diverse workforces.


Here are a few examples:

Pricing Information

Workforce management solutions are often offered on a subscription model, and priced on a per employee, per month basis. The price may vary depending on feature density, and some vendors may require a minimum number of employees.
