  • What is employee scheduling software?

    Employee scheduling software automates the process of creating and managing shift schedules according to rules and parameters set by an organization, state and federal laws, safety regulations, and union agreements. Intelligent automation, configured to meet an organization’s unique scheduling requirements, helps solve key business challenges such as improving employee job satisfaction, maximizing shift coverage, increasing scheduling efficiency, and lowering total labor costs.
