PARiM Review

Editors' Review by the Workforce Management Software Review Team

What do hospitals, toy factories and hotels have in common? This is not the start of a bad joke but an introduction to a useful management tool. The answer is: they all involve numerous staff, different rotas, and a generous collection of needs. Parim is a workforce management software that helps managers and leaders meet these demands.

A wide variety of staff means different shifts and working hours, a variety of salaries and payrolls, an array of demands. The challenges, though, remain common across all employers: coordination and communication seem to be key in scheduling, managing holidays, absences, time and attendance. As a cohesive solution that helps managers better coordinate their teams from virtually anywhere and at anytime, Parim software is here to stay. Let’s dive into Parim’s world and see what this great app has to offer.

 

Assigning shifts

Parim offers a compact and clear calendar that allows you to view all your staff rota in one place, turning the assigning of shifts into an easy task: just drag the icon of a member of your staff and drop it in your calendar cells. Once that’s done, share it with everyone involved through email or text notifications.

 

Being flexible

PARiM Time Clock Page

If you manage a team of freelancers, or your industry has constantly changing scenarios, then flexibility is key. Letting your staff plan their own rota has proven to be a useful technique to avoid confusion and reduce back and forth communication efforts – which cost money and time. Parim gives your staff the opportunity to remotely access the portal, with online mobile timesheets, 24/7.

 

 

Working remotely

Many managers coordinate teams based in different locations. Whether your staff is working at a wedding by the sea, or in a security post in a distant refinery, you need to keep track of them. Parim’s app recording GPS locations gives staff the chance to clock in and out, on a mobile device. In addition, Parim’s Time Clock dashboard and notifications help you manage your workforce in real-time.

 

Reading data

PARiM Automated Timesheets

For some people, data is all. For others, the way data is presented makes the difference.

 

Managing absences

Every industry, business or company has its own absence dynamics. And as every manager knows, keeping track on holidays, sick days and no shows is paramount. Parim allows you to customize your absence settings and holiday allowances tailoring them to your company’s needs.

 

Now let’s talk business

This sounds great, but how much is it actually going to cost? Parim offers a creative pricing proposal based on shift hours, with no upfront charge, license fees, user fees or contracts. Users can opt for a prepaid or a pay-as-you-go fee, both per shift hour. You can calculate your fees on the Parim website by entering your company’s total shift hours per month.

"Well supported with extra modules"

// Operations Manager at 3 Star Security Ltd

What do you like about PARiM?

We use PARiM because its very easy to use, extremely well supported and seems to be developed in response to our suggestions quickly. We use it to schedule our staff, communicate with them, track our certificates and do our Lone Worker Check Calls. Being modular we only turn on the modules with the features we wanted. As we expand we may use ,more but at least they are there should we want them

What do you dislike about PARiM?

Check Calls sometimes don't work and we would like to be able to see which staff member lives closest to a client site.

What have you been using it for and what problems did PARiM solve?

We use PARiM’s Event feature to manage our exam schedule and coordinate our invigilators, supervisors and qualified Cambridge English Examiners. It has made life a lot easier for us with everyone being able to see the exam schedule and Open Shifts. Support and help is immediately available whenever we have had issues. The system is a breath of fresh air and saves us a lot of time. PARiM share their development pipeline with us and keep us posted with new features that are coming out.
As our qualified examiners are monitored by Cambridge English Language Assessment, Parim has proven to be an immensely useful tool when it comes to allocating examining staff as it doesn't allow you to add staff unless they are qualified for that position and level. The reports we need are all there and available when we need them. Well done. A great job indeed!
