KANSAS CITY, Mo., May 3, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- ShiftNote today announced the release of the ShiftNote Scheduler – employee scheduling software. The new scheduling tools work as an add-on to the existing suite of web-based management tools, and will make it easier for managers to create and edit schedules online, and employees to swap shifts and request time off.
By using ShiftNote, managers are able to ensure that every shift they run is smooth. They can make entries to the daily log, track important data such as sales and labor stats, assign tasks, and store documents from anywhere they have internet access, including on mobile devices. But managers also need an easier way to utilize this information in order to schedule their staff. With the addition of the ShiftNote Scheduler, they will have access to a simple, yet powerful schedule creator that includes a suite of forecasting tools that will help them minimize labor costs while maximizing sales.
The new scheduling tools will revolutionize the way employees swap shifts, turning the entire process digital. This means no more messy bulletin boards to sort through, and no more calling every co-worker you know trying to get a shift covered. Employees will have the ability to trade shifts online, as well as request time off and receive messages from management. Management can in turn approve shift requests with the push of a button, and have the associated schedules update automatically. Managers will no longer have to keep track of time off requests and vacations; everything will be stored in ShiftNote and noted when a new schedule is created. Imagine the time this will save both employees and management alike.
Managers can also use the new scheduling tools to track overtime and set holiday pay. Schedule templates can be created to save time in creating schedules in the future, and the auto-scheduling feature will schedule your entire staff for you!
"Our goal at ShiftNote has always been to make the life of a shift manager easier ." Says ShiftNote CEO, Matt Thompson. "We designed every aspect of the ShiftNote Scheduler with that concept in mind."
ShiftNote users include managers, owners, regional directors, and human resource employees of single and multi-unit restaurants, hotels and resorts, retail stores, healthcare facilities, municipal departments, and industrial plants. Current companies that have locations using ShiftNote for shift-to-shift communication include Landry's Inc., California Pizza Kitchen, Tommy Bahama, The Double Tree by Hilton, Holiday Inn Express, Famous Dave's, Panera Bread and Smokey Bones.
