New CTO to roll out SaaS version of WORKSuite®
We'd like to welcome Paul Roberts to the Working Time Solutions team. Paul joins as Chief Technology Officer to spearhead the ongoing development of our workforce planning and management software.
His role sees him lead our 12-strong technology team responsible for the development of our innovative WORKSuite® product set and integration with client HR systems.
Our specialist software enables organisations to design, implement and manage flexible shift patterns and rosters that dramatically improve productivity, enhance customer service and support employee wellbeing.
Paul will lead the roll-out of our new SaaS technology, which includes myTIME, a self-service platform that enables employees to securely view and manage their shifts, holidays, and time banks using their personal mobile devices.
He has over 20 years’ experience across software architecture, database design, public and private cloud computing and implementation of complex international systems.
Most recently he was Head of Development and Delivery at Fundtech FSC, a provider of SaaS-based global transaction technology to banks and corporations, which was acquired as part of a $1.25bn deal with Canadian fintech company D+H in 2015.
On Paul’s appointment, our Managing Director Kevin White, said: “Paul has an impressive track record of developing technology and talent that delivers significant value to clients.
“Resourcing models are coming under increasing pressure from Brexit, technological disruption, customer expectations, rising labour costs and public scrutiny of employment arrangements.
“Our technology enables employers to create flexible working patterns that respond to changing demand, which is crucial to managing labour costs and maintaining a productive, healthy and happy workforce.”
Paul himself had this to say: “Demand-Led Rostering is a rapidly growing area of HR technology and I’m looking forward to helping a diverse range of clients deliver a step change in productivity and employee wellbeing.
“We have a strong platform and a clear roadmap to further enhance our SaaS, analytics, compliance and mobile functionality.”
