Cut the admin, grow your business Online rota software for cafes, restaurants & bars
Spending more time on admin than actually running your business? We can help. RotaCloud is the fast, no-nonsense way to plan rotas, track attendance, and manage annual leave, all in one place.
Reduce your wage bills, eliminate staffing mix-ups, and cut rota management time with our easy-to-use software, while our free smartphone apps mean that your chefs, waiters, baristas and bartenders always have the most up-to-date version of the rota in their pocket.
We can easily see if we’re over or understaffed, and staff can also book time off through the app. Our drivers mark their availability, so we’re always able to deliver perfect levels of service to our customers.
RotaCloud saves me loads of time, which I can spend running my business
RotaCloud’s given us a platform to efficiently build and communicate staff rotas, leave, and payroll between our teams.
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.
All the right ingredients for the perfect rota
Build rotas fast
RotaCloud’s simple drag-and-drop interface and handy tools mean you’ll spend less time at your desk and more time cooking, brewing, and serving up a storm. Your rota is stored online, too, so you can manage it wherever you like.
No more missed shifts
Need to change a shift once the rota’s been published? You can relax, safe in the knowledge that your chefs, baristas and waitstaff always have access to the most up-to-date version of the rota right there in their pocket.
Free apps for your staff
Your team can use the free RotaCloud Android and iOS apps for everything rota-related, from checking their next shift or requesting holiday, to proposing a shift-swap or sharing their availability — no more emails, texts or WhatsApp groups for you to keep track of.
Cut your wage bill
See a clear visual representation of exactly when and where your staff are scheduled to work, so you can tell at a glance if you have enough — or too many — wait staff, baristas, or kitchen staff on the rota, next to the overall estimated staffing cost per day.
Fill gaps fast
Last-minute big booking? Suddenly short-staffed? Eligible employees are automatically notified as soon as ‘open’ shifts are available, and your rota will update instantly when they’re filled.
We’re fully GDPR compliant, so you can relax knowing that, as well as being held securely, we’ll never sell your data or share it with anyone else.
Because RotaCloud is 100% web-based, both you and your staff can access your accounts anytime and anywhere you have an internet connection.
Free support for life
We’re known for our fantastic customer support — if you ever get in a muddle, our UK-based support team are just a quick message away.
