The challenge

Before RotaCloud, director Craig Stephenson and his team used a spreadsheet to plan their rotas. The system wasn’t, however, without its problems.

“It was complicated for staff to follow, and very time consuming for me to keep up-to-date,” Craig told us.

“At the end of each month, I had to spend valuable time adding up overtime and undertime and the spreadsheet took ages to open, so it was always a pain to quickly check rotas and holidays. Then there were times when we had conflicting copies... nightmare!”

I started the free trial straight away and in no time at all had created a rota for the year.

The solution

“One Christmas, after panicking about whether or not our staff knew the amended rotas, I found RotaCloud,” Craig said.

“I started the free trial straight away and in no time at all had created a rota for the year. Any questions I asked the [RotaCloud] staff were responded to very quickly even over the Christmas period,” he continued.

“I briefly looked at other options out there but very quickly realised that everything we needed was on RotaCloud.”
