Accessibility... Immediacy... Interactivity... Versatility
Accessibility - You and your staff always have the
very latest schedule to hand, viewable on the Internet. If staff need a hard copy printed version, a
'fridge-door friendly' calendar showing their own shifts can be printed. Rota administrators can control the rota from
home, or wherever they have access to the Internet.
Immediacy - When the rota is changed, those
details are immediately available to anyone viewing the rota online. The broadcast module will
suggest which staff are affected by the changes and mark them for rebroadcasting, by email or SMS text message.
Versatility - theRota works for many
different types of workplace. Striving to meet the needs of our clients has led
to user-customisable features... and that means it's a better fit for the way you work.
Interactivity - This is the part that really makes the
program fly. Your staff can log into a rota via the internet to
Print out their upcoming calendar.
Make their own private reminder notes on their calendar.
Request holidays (for salaried staff),
Update availability (contractors and casual staff),
Modify their details and preferences,
Participate in your rota's online message board,
Swap shifts with other qualified colleagues,
Volunteer for unfilled/open shifts.
We recommend that you first
log into our sample rota as a
normal staff member to experience the above. To see the complete functionality of theRota as somebody that creates and
manages rotas, you can create a free trial rota. (See links.)
Workplaces within the European Union must ensure the staff schedules comply with the Work Time
Directive. (read more...)
