Scheduling For A New Generation
Scheduling for many businesses is no longer easy. As we move to a new 'Gig economy' or 'Uber-Style' working, we need a better solution to manage this workforce. Schedulie has been designed specifically to do just that.
Most rostering or scheduling apps are really just an extension of a spreadsheet online. Typically, they have columns with dates, and rows with a list of staff and you put an X where they intersect when you want an employee on a particular date.
Which is fine - if you have a simple scheduling requirement and a small amount of staff. But, what if your needs are more complex? Maybe you need to cater for split-shifts, or staff doing multiple tasks or roles on the same day? Maybe you have projects, or teams - or if you are service provider maybe you need to assign your staff to contracts for your clients?
This is why we built Schedulie. When spreadsheets and paper don't work and other scheduling tools don't match your needs, take a look at what we can offer.
The Gig Economy Challenges
The day of the nine to five and Monday to Friday roster is over. A new 'Gig' or 'Uber-Style' worker is emerging who are dictating when and where they are available to work, not necessarily when you want them to work. Schedulie has been especially designed for these workers.
