Shift scheduling made easy

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011 by Servage

Are you ever working according to a schedule? Or maybe in charge of creating such schedules? Then you know about all the problems arising from shift planning. Getting the schedule done in the first place can be very tiresome. But afterwards, challenges arise as well. Very commonly is the management of people staying home sick, shift swaps between employees, holiday planning etc. Scheduling quickly becomes a very complex task, and simply managing it with an Excel sheet can be very inefficient. Thankfully there are many tools available out there, to make the task easier.

What you really want is help creating the schedule based on predetermined parameters, like employee availability, holidays etc. Smart notifications like email and SMS to remind employees of work times. Easy shift swapping functionality between employees. And a smooth, easy-to-use interface.

One of the better solutions is ShiftPlanning. The tool offers a nice web interface which allows you and your coworkers to manage shifts efficiently. It almost becomes a joy to do shift planning ;-)
