Fargo, ND - October 13, 2015 - Atlas Business Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based employee scheduling software, has released a self-scheduling enhancement to its flagship staff scheduling platform, ScheduleAnywhere. The new self-scheduling option will make employee scheduling easier and save managers even more time. Instead of having to schedule every employee, specific employees can now schedule themselves.
Self-scheduling has become more prominent in specific industries and is seen as a way to increase job satisfaction and staff retention. Rather than managers assigning shifts to employees, self-scheduling allows certain employees, usually those who are more tenured, to pick the shifts and days they would like to work. Managers can still approve or edit the schedule to ensure proper staffing levels and review scheduled hours before committing and posting the schedule.
The latest release of ScheduleAnywhere now allows users to create "self-scheduling timers" and assign them to employees. These timers control when employees can login to ScheduleAnywhere to schedule themselves and which dates they are allowed to edit. Timers also set future schedule periods and self-scheduling sessions automatically.
"We've improved ScheduleAnywhere's self-scheduling tool so managers can allow different groups of people to schedule themselves at different times," said Jon Forknell, Vice President and General Manager of Atlas Business Solutions. "This gives our customers unlimited flexibility to grant self-scheduling access to employees by seniority, position or any other criteria."
ScheduleAnywhere is affordable online staff scheduling software for assigning, managing and communicating work shifts, anywhere, anytime. It offers built-in tools for managing shift rotations and coverage, eliminating scheduling conflicts and reducing unnecessary overtime. For more information, visit www.scheduleanywhere.com. Free 30-day trial accounts are available and pricing is based on the number of employees. Plans start at only $25 per month. Mobile apps are free and available for iPhone and Android.
