High volume shift booking automatically suggesting the closest, most available and compliant candidates. Pay rates are calculated automatically and display PAYE, LTD or Umbrella cost additions as shifts are filled, resulting in real-time gross profit forecasting.
Panther automatically imports shifts from any spreadsheet, instantly filling up your booking sheet with accurate information. Our AI algorithm then suggests the most likely candidate for each shift, taking into account worker location, shift history and more.
When you create a shift, you specify the required grade or specialism. Once the shift has been created, Panther will only suggest workers that match that criteria, so you can be sure that only suitable workers will be booked.
When a worker has been booked into a shift, users can send an automatic confirmation message via text, email or the Panther App. It's also possible to send confirmation messages to clients, detailing which workers will fill each shift. This saves a vast amount of time sending emails or texts manually.
The Availability tab allows you to view your entire workforce in a single view format and record their availability for the coming weeks and months. Once you have availability and holidays added, this pulls through into the shift booking tab, and candidates that are available for specific shifts will be suggested to speed up the booking process.
Proactively store worker availability for different shift types, such as early, day, night, or full availability. The more accurate you are when recording availability, the more useful it will be when booking your shifts.
Recording Availability is important, but it can be time-consuming to call all of your workers individually to ask for this information. Panther features automated availability request messages which can be sent to workers in bulk and in just a few clicks.
The Availability tab allows you to plan worker holiday and leave weeks in advance, so you can be prepared and take this into account when filling out your roster. It's also possible to allow workers to request their own holiday and leave, which can then be approved in an instant
Timesheets can be viewed and edited on any device, with digital signatures, GPS stamp and authorisation process. Panther supports single and multiworker timeshets on one platform. Automatically generate PDF timesheets based on any template design. At the point of authorisation, the shift can be split into multiple locations to enable different authorisers to approve each split and expenses can be added to get client approval.
Panther’s mobile authorisation allows a different authoriser to sign the timesheet for each shift - a very useful feature if the authoriser is not known until the shift has started. Timesheets appear on the candidate's app before the shift has started which allows authorisation to be achieved even if there is no internet connection.
Candidates who self-book into shifts with the client can add their own timesheets to the app without the need for the shift to be booked on Panther first. This allows timesheets to be authorised immediately without having to wait for the shift to be booked in arrears.
Batches of approved timesheets from shifts on any date can be exported from Panther via API or CVS file on a regular basis so they can be processed. Panther doesn’t require an entire weeks’ worth of shifts to be processed at once, making payroll more efficient by being able to run daily, weekly or monthly pay at once.
Maintain client or industry specific compliance requirements in Panther for different specialisms and assign them to clients or locations. Also maintain framework specific compliance requirements against clients. Be alerted in real-time when a candidate isn’t compliant for a shift and send automated compliance expiry reminders to candidates when their documents or certificates are running out.
Panther checks the compliance of a candidate against their specialism & client specific compliance requirements when booking shifts. Panther prevents a candidate being booked into a shift that they are not compliant for.
Save hours of administration time with Panther’s automatic pin checks. We have integrations with the following professional bodies; NMC, HCPC, GMC, IMC.
Scheduled compliance reminders are automatically sent to candidates in advance of their compliance documents expiring to reduce hours of chasing by compliance staff. Consultants can also get in touch with candidates to inform or remind them of compliance information or notifcations.
Panther provides your own brand candidate app showing instant shift updates, directions to the client location, hotel bookings, timesheet sign-off, availability, compliance and more. This allows candidates to navigate Panther easily and manage shift booking and timesheets with ease. The two way messaging system between worker and consultant means that communication about shift information or compliance is easy.
Candidates are able to change their locations, add expenses, edit hours, and even swap shfits via the app. All of these features appear instantaneously on the app when required. This allows users to be able to manage every aspect themselves with ease.
Panther provides chat style messaging that allows communication between the Panther user & the candidate via the app. There is full visibility of all messages to candidates so colleagues can be kept up to date on conversations.
Candidates can enjoy a fully digital timesheet experience on their mobile & obtain timesheet authorisation at the end of their shifts. This makes the process of authorising timesheets much more efficient for both clients and candidates.
Measure all aspects of your client & candidate activity. Financial reporting on pay, charge, gross profit, gross profit margin % and average uplift alongside KPI reporting on number of shifts filled, number of hours filled, shifts filled by specialism, shifts filled by type & shift notice time are some of the measurable attributes. Run reports on demand within a given date range or auto schedule the reports to be sent to key stakeholders in the business.
Pay, charge & gross profit are calculated in real-time as soon as a shift is filled or cancelled. Contracted pay & charge rates are used as a base then invoicing shift patterns, forecasted breaks, PAYE cost additions & pay uplifts are all put into the mix to produce a highly accurate GP forecast.
Run bespoke reports for each of your clients to analyse their performance. Non-financial, operation reports also drive the dashboard. Shifts are classified further to give detailed reporting; filled shifts, unfilled shifts, client cancelled shifts, candidate no shows, candidate cancelled shifts, filled by competitor shifts & cannot supply shifts.
