Workforce management built for healthcare's complexities

Integrated timekeeping, scheduling, and workforce analytics to improve collaboration and manage productivity.

Healthcare is complicated, and workforce management is one of the most complicated systems there is. Tracking time and all the pieces involved requires software that can navigate the unique demands of healthcare. At symplr, we are proud to provide healthcare-specific solutions to manage the complexities of timekeeping and scheduling, freeing up nurses to have more time for patient care.

Invested in too many disparate systems to manage your healthcare workforce?

To combat workforce shortages, increased labor costs, and other challenges, healthcare leaders are investing in technology.

What they fail to realize…

The use of disconnected systems may exacerbate workforce problems at your organization. According to the symplr Compass Survey, health system leaders are frustrated by working with too many siloed systems.

There's a better way.

Integrated, healthcare-specific workforce management technology helps reduce administrative burden and gives clinicians time back for patient care.

A collaborative and efficient workforce management approach can help your organization retain staff, contain costs, and improve patient care.

What our symplr Workforce customers are saying

At Henry Community Health, we look for solutions that enable us to be agile in our adoption and lower our infrastructure footprint. symplr Workforce, specifically the self-scheduling mobile functionality, has been a game changer for our organization. As a long-standing customer of symplr, the experience migrating to symplr Workforce has elevated us from a vendor/customer relationship to a true partnership. 


CIO, Henry Community Health
symplr is our partner, working side-by-side with us to help us implement workforce solutions as quickly as possible so we can focus on providing high-quality patient care.


Financial Controller, Bryan Health
Having an electronic scheduling system is an efficient solution for our nursing leaders in reducing the manual workload for staff scheduling. In today’s ever-changing healthcare world, the demands of time combined with staffing challenges due to turnover and vacancies necessitates providing efficient and cost-effective tools for our leaders. The Staffing and Scheduling platform was also foundational in developing our 24/7 centralized staffing hub to achieve better workforce management.


SVP and Chief Nursing Officer, Phoebe Putney Health System
The mobile app with the beacon is addressing an issue with staff floating to the correct facility/departments. Having Time and Attendance and Staffing and Scheduling accessed in the same API portal benefits our employees and management staff, as we used to access two different applications. We also have a better picture of the schedules related to possible overtime.


IT Shared Business Services Lead, Genesis Health System
The HRP module provides a way to manage tax settings and benefits settings for employees. Benefits enrollment is very smooth each year. For time entry, we have a mix of salary and hourly employees. The system works well to support everyone who needs to use it. Managing time off also works well. For what it needs to do, it does it well and is reliable.


System Administrator, Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital
The Time & Attendance system is a wonderful product! It's easy to use and offers many features for employees which eliminates some of the work from managers. I also like being able to set some of my own preferences and looking at information that is important to my role. The integration between Scheduling, Time Cards and Attendance tracking is excellent. Our implementation team (12 years ago) was excellent and definitely appreciated their expertise on best practices. Customer Service is wonderful. Most of my questions are answered immediately and if the issue needs to be escalated, the responses I receive are very prompt.
