Only a manager can understand the complexity and sheer amount of factors even the most basic of work schedules entail. In addition to your regular name and time slot matching, other considerations are in order such as minimum amount of hours per employee, commute fare, the employee preferences, marital and family situations, class times for students and above them all – your company’s needs.
Most managers don’t even consciously consider every aspect in itself, but their consideration does appear in the final outcome. Those rules or guidelines are the difference between a "dumb” automatic schedule and a "smart” automatic schedule.
EZShift has taken "smart” to a whole new level with its smart rule system, which is customizable to any company and any need.
John can’t work with Henry because they both lack the experience?
Can’t have Jannet work night because she’s a single mom?
Give preference to Jake because he’s doing a really good job lately?
Schedule weekend shifts in fair rotations?
Must have one intern maximum on night shifts?
Let EZShift take care of it all for you.
