Staff scheduling software for the modern workforce
Snap Schedule staff scheduling software is the easiest way for companies to replace error-prone scheduling spreadsheets and transform time-consuming, manual ways of staff scheduling into effortless workforce management.
Staff scheduling can be complicated and present many challenges. Most businesses have a variety of job positions to schedule and shifts to cover. Businesses that have peak hours and high seasons allocate employees proportionally by the hour of the day and/or rotate employees to ensure an even spread of shifts for each employee. Union and FLSA rules may place restrictions on work hours, overtime compensation, and the types of work schedules that can be implemented. The schedulers must also consider time-off requests, labor rules, and personnel availability when developing schedules for full-time and part-time staff. Snap Schedule can save you time and help you manage your staff with its robust scheduling features.
