Most workforce planning solutions model organizations’ hiring needs without an analytics-based driver. Vanguard Predictive Planning, forecasts capacity with market-leading algorithms, enabling true optimal performance to identify resource shortages or excesses. This is a key differentiator from most workforce planning solutions.

Planning in silos is error-prone and gives sub-par results. Vanguard Predictive Planning, on the other hand, enables true unified planning. Changes in demand for a product or service will show real-time impact on workforce capacity plans and alert users of potential issues. Users can then run different what-if models to determine the optimal plan of action, balancing risks, costs, and other variables.
