“With the software system fully in place across all homes, we have found that staff are better able to view their rosters, report their time and managers have access to reports that help in their work.”
The Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs (MDVA) & Minnesota IT Services (MNIT) Enable Expanding Operations with WorkForce Software
The Minnesota Department of Veteran Affairs (MDVA) Healthcare Division believes it is not only their duty to provide the highest level of care to Veterans and their families but their honour. Operating across five state Veterans’ homes, with three new homes under construction, MDVA oversees 1,300 employees with 500 estimated to join by 2023. As MDVA expands, they aim to continue developing and delivering high-quality healthcare to Minnesota’s heroes in a nurturing environment.
MDVA lacked standardised rostering and timekeeping processes able to keep up with the needs of five Veterans’ homes and expanding operations. Disparate and outdated systems, involving manual spreadsheets and unsupported technology, complicated managing day-to-day operations while lacking the capabilities to support adequate audits. These time-consuming and costly processes made adapting to evolving state and federal requirements difficult and risked non-compliance.
Backed by notable referrals, WorkForce Software was selected by MDVA and Minnesota IT Services (MNIT) in 2017 for WorkForce Software’s Time & Attendance solution (with custom configurations) due to its modern and user-friendly functionality and ability to administer complex and extensive business rules.
Employee Engagement from Anywhere
User-friendly mobile capabilities make accessing rosters and submitting time off requests significantly easier for MDVA healthcare staff who can rest assured that their time reporting is accurate, strengthening the trust between themselves and operations.
Processes Prepared for What’s Next
WorkForce Software Time & Attendance provides a strong foundation for MDVA’s growing footprint by unifying and standardising workplace processes across all locations. Now, MDVA can measure, compare and evaluate data from home to home and department to department.
Throughout implementation, retaining a comprehensive understanding of MDVA’s unique needs was vital for success. WorkForce Software established two key roles to walk alongside the MDVA and MNIT teams and dedicated resources to ensure complex and extensive business requirements were adhered to and correctly configured.
As MDVA and MNIT navigated the global pandemic and looked to the future, WorkForce Software’s enterprise-grade platform and Intelligent Decision Architecture allowed workforce management processes to quickly adapt as policies evolved to remain in compliance with state, federal and local regulations.
