Accessibility... Immediacy... Interactivity...
You and your staff always have the very latest schedule to hand, viewable
on the Internet. If staff need a hard copy printed version, a 'fridge-door
friendly' calendar showing their own shifts can be printed. Rota administrators
can control the rota from home, or wherever they have access to the Internet.
Immediacy - When the
rota is changed, those
details are immediately available to anyone viewing the rota
online. The broadcast module will suggest which staff are
affected by the changes and mark them for rebroadcasting, by email or SMS text
Versatility - theRota
works for many different types of workplace. Striving
to meet the needs of our clients has led to user-customisable
features... and that means it's a better fit for the way you work.
Interactivity - This
is the part that really makes the program fly. Your staff can log into a
rota via the internet to
Print out their upcoming calendar.
Make their own private reminder notes on their calendar.
Request holidays (for salaried staff),
Update availability (contractors and casual staff),
Modify their details and preferences,
Participate in your rota's online message board,
Swap shifts with other qualified colleagues,
Volunteer for unfilled/open shifts.
