Fargo, ND - February 16, 2016 - Atlas Business Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based employee scheduling software, has released an enhanced mobile app for its flagship staff scheduling platform, ScheduleAnywhere. Now users can submit time-off requests, as well as schedule requests, from any mobile device. This added convenience means no longer having to log in to the full ScheduleAnywhere web site to communicate requests to managers.
The new mobile time-off request feature allows employees to submit partial or "all day" time-off requests from any mobile device. Time off spanning more than one day can be submitted in a single request, saving time. When a request is submitted, ScheduleAnywhere instantly notifies the appropriate manager. All requests need manager approval. Once time off is approved, any shift that conflicts with the request is automatically removed from the schedule and available for other staff to work. Employees can also submit general schedule requests to their manager with the new mobile app. Requests can be to cover open shifts, swap shifts, request additional hours or overtime, or to communicate changes in availability.
"ScheduleAnywhere has always been focused on the managers who actually do the scheduling, by giving them the tools they need to do their job," said Jon Forknell, Vice President and General Manager of Atlas Business Solutions. "Now it's time to put equal focus on the people being scheduled and streamline the communication between employee and manager." The new ScheduleAnywhere mobile application is free and available at the iTunes App Store or Google Play.
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 number of employees. Plans start at only $25 per month.
