Nimble: The Science of Scheduling

By Maurice Nagle November 19, 2015

Managing a staff of any size can pose a great challenge, let alone in a global company with thousands of employees. So whether the vertical is healthcare, municipalities, retail etc. it is mission critical to have a workforce optimization solution in place to ensure customers are satisfied and productivity remains high. 


Anyone that has ever managed a staff understands the trials and tribulations involved. From time zones and overtime to paid time off, vacation and unforeseen circumstances it can begin to feel like a herculean task. For this reason, Nimble software developed its nimbleschedule to, as its CEO Sasha Poljak told TMC at Editor’s Day Silicon Valley, “take the guess work out of scheduling.” 

Nimble is able to aid in this global struggle via an easy to use Web and desktop app that does the hard work for you. By utilizing data points from historical sales, future forecasts and environmental factors and leveraging machine learning the WFO solution provides management with the “most optimal way to manage staff.”

According to Poljak, a billion people wake up every morning to look at “something” to tell them where and when they work—95 million here in the United States. The nimble app provides employees with a user friendly interface and a tool for greater engagement.

Each firm’s deployment is built upon nimble’s base platform, and integrated with the base platform is customized module to address features and needs of each market segment. For instance, an environmental factor taken into account is labor laws. Most geographies possess different levels of regulation; nimble schedule, via customizable module, is able to create optimum scheduling staying within legalities.

Nimble’s cloud based suite of WFO tools was launched in 2013, and the Saas offering has seen nothing but a steady ascent since. It has companies leveraging its solution suite worldwide and is able to provide support across three continents and five time zones.

Apps are the craze of today; mobile, easy to use and feature rich. We’ve all heard the line “there’s an app for that,” well, it would appear the days of a paper schedule tacked to the break room wall are coming to an end. Why? Nimble has an app for that.
