Suppose you’re involved in employee shift scheduling and aren’t already on automated scheduling software. In that case, you’ll know it can be a slow process. Spreadsheets, calendars, and whiteboards may be familiar tools you use to manage staff rosters. Manually creating employee schedules is not ideal. Neither is having to update and edit them. Creating and updating manual rosters becomes even more difficult with a growing workforce.
Where too then? With the right staff rostering software, you can reduce costs, save time, and increases productivity.
Salaries typically make up a large part of business expenditure so any savings can have a significant impact on profitability. We’re all capable of human error, so it’s not uncommon for businesses to overstaff and understaff from time to time. Rostering software helps you choose the right staff for the right shift, and reduces the risk of human error by optimizing coverage.
With manual rosters, any shift change is time-consuming and cumbersome. Communicating via email or text to all staff members for every change to their shift is energy-sapping. By having intuitive scheduling software, you can automatically alert employees of available shifts, forget the stress and allow for more flexibility in shift changes.
Timecloud’s roster can send notifications where you can view your assigned shifts, allowing you to sync them with your calendar instantly. Staff can accept or reject shift invitations via email. Shifts can be allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Saves You Time
For many businesses, staff rostering software saves valuable time. The system’s ability to reduce delays in shift changes, copy and pasting shift patterns to future weeks, and to be able to set predetermined roster patterns to avoid repetitive entry create a system that gives you more time to focus on other essential aspects of running a business.
We all know how manual rostering can produce friction in the sense that it’s slow, cumbersome, and potentially costly if staff aren’t allocated correctly. But we also know that there is an alternative. With Timecloud, you can modernize your business admin and save money too. Timecloud’s Staff Rostering Software is the easiest way to manage and roster your staff on the go.
