Set yourself up for sales success Online rota software for retailers
The retail industry’s changing fast — and your store needs to change with it. Instead of accepting staffing issues like no-shows, rota mix-ups, and time theft as an unavoidable part of doing business, you can tackle them head-on — with a little help from RotaCloud.
RotaCloud is cloud-based staff scheduling and time tracking software that’s designed to reduce rota headaches. We know first-hand how tricky rotas can be in retail, so we built something to change that.
Communicating schedules is instantaneous, and with colleagues being able to use the mobile apps, RotaCloud is a crucial part of our business. The team at RotaCloud are second to none!
I’d say we’re probably saving about two or three days out of the month for each department. It’s a massive saving.
It makes it so much clearer to plan without worrying that we’ve over- or under-staffed — that’s something RotaCloud has massively helped with.
What really surprised me was a financial saving — due to getting the rotas more organised, we discovered we didn't need as much part-time and weekend cover.
[Implementing RotaCloud] has freed me up to focus on starting other small businesses to add to our current set.
Retail-ready rota management
Build your perfect rota pattern
Creating rota patterns in RotaCloud is a breeze. Once you’re happy with your template, duplicate the pattern across weeks, months, or even across the year with a couple of clicks. Need to make changes? Adjusting your rota is easy — whether you’re using the PC in the back office or a tablet at the point of sale.
Never short-staffed — or over budget
Check you have enough sales assistants and managers on duty for the days ahead at a glance with RotaCloud’s colour-coded Dashboard view, so your customer service is never compromised. Gain visibility over your cash flow, too, with estimated costs per role, location, or time period — right there on the rota.
Always up to date
No more shift mix-ups; no more excuses: the RotaCloud employee apps mean your staff always have the latest rota in their pocket. Need to tweak the schedule? Employees are alerted right away through push or email notifications.
Holiday management made easy
Your staff can request leave through RotaCloud— and your managers can approve or deny requests. Set leave embargoes for busy periods so you’re never short-staffed during busy retail periods.
Tackle lateness and no-shows
Have a sales assistant who keeps shirking their shifts? RotaCloud gives you total visibility over attendance, helping you back up disciplinary decisions with hard data.
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.
