ShiftPlanning has been used at our facility for one year now. We are a college campus environment. In the past, we used excel in combination with a learning management system to communicate and maintain student worker scheduling. The strongest features of ShiftPlanning are the many methods for communicating when a worker is to work (general scheduling), when policy changes or other changes at work need to be quickly and easily assimilated to all employees (dashboard notifications), and when notifications need to be sent to just individuals (ping). All of this communication can be managed in ShiftPlanning.
We spent so much time just getting schedules done and then something would happen - some one is sick or their grandmother died - Then there was all the communication getting employees with the right skills to cover the shift -. I went looking for a scheduling software and got so much more. We use the dashboard and email features every day to keep staff aware of changes. Our business depends on everybody knowing 100s of ever changing details. Being able to send emails to specific groups let us communicate sensitive information securely to those who need to know.* I recommend this to everyone I know who has to manage any size business.*
We're still learning all the features and working out the kinks. Overall, it seems to be going well. The schedule wizard is helpful. I like that I can schedule specific staff to specific locations and positions.
Very user friendly for our employees who have to record their time in the field. Not only can our employees clock in and out from their cell phones, they can also attach notes to each time card so we can easily give status updates to our clients. ShiftPlanning is easy to use and learning curve is very small.
Shiftplanning is brilliant. It is easy to use and has more features than I expected to find. I give it rave reviews with other local business owners and feel that it is very valuable to me. I would not give it up for anything. The support team is prompt, professional and kind. They have been willing and able to help with any and all questions I have thrown their way. Very Impressive!
Mt Baker Camp has been using this software (Shiftplanning) since the end of 2013. We use it for managing all levels of staffing. We track hours worked which is a advantage in allowing employees & volunteers to see when they are scheduled multiple weeks ahead of time. At the end of the year it's easy to run reports to show how many total hours where contributed. Take the 30 Day Trial run, you won't be disappointed.
