Staff Scheduling per Location

EasyRoster’s cloud workforce management software simplifies staff scheduling by offering location-specific scheduling capabilities. Whether you have multiple branches, sites, or departments, EasyRoster allows you to manage personnel shifts efficiently per location.

Manual Or Automatic Staff Scheduling

The cloud version provides the flexibility of manual or automatic staff scheduling. The simplest approach is to allocate personnel and utilise the “Automatic Scheduling” feature. This feature automatically generates schedules based on the allocated personnel, streamlining the process and saving time. Any exceptions or adjustments to shift patterns can be easily managed manually using the visually rich planning board.

Management Scheduling Reports

After scheduling for a specific period, EasyRoster’s management reports provide valuable insights to ensure efficient rosters that meet contracted service levels. These reports enable informed decision-making regarding roster optimisation, such as posting the appropriate number of personnel with the correct grades or ranks at each site. The management reports highlight overtime and non-productive time, allowing organisations to optimise profitability at every location.

With EasyRoster’s management reports you can view, manage and optimise staff scheduling across different locations, ensuring adequate coverage and optimised resource allocation. The system simplifies the reporting, enhances accuracy, and empowers managers to make data-driven decisions for efficient shift planning.
