“We looked for ways to manage rotas and found a few options online. RotaCloud had a free trial, so we signed up to give it a go,” Glenda said.
“The online interface is very clean and straightforward; the fact that you can also use the app on your phone makes it great to make and track changes on the go.”
After getting the thumbs-up from their staff, Glenda decided to make RotaCloud a permanent feature at their business. It wasn’t long before she began to notice the difference.
“I used to set up the rota every two weeks and it took around two hours in the evening to complete before emailing staff,” Glenda said. “Now, I can do it in a much shorter amount of time, and when staff aren't available or need to move their shifts around it is all very simple.”
“RotaCloud also keeps track of worked hours, breaks, budgets and the reports are effortless to access,” she added.
With Fee-ka’s rotas now under control, Glenda then decided to make use of our Time & Attendance add-on.
“Prompted by our shift managers complaining of some team members not showing up on time, I've recently started using the attendance feature. This way everyone knows when shifts start and end, and our budget is well spent for the effective working hours,” she said.
“I'm also excited to start using the multiple location feature once we expand to have multiple cafes.”
Finally, we asked Glenda whether she would recommend RotaCloud to other independent business owners.
“RotaCloud has become an indispensable tool for us, and we think it would be the same for anyone starting their own business when dealing with shifts and staff. I highly recommend it to any business managing staff — it will make your life so much easier!”
We think it’s fair to say that’s a ‘yes’!
