Every cloud…

At RotaMaster we understand that our clients’ data is often sensitive, always vital to their service, and in most cases there’s a lot of it! This also means we understand the importance of protecting and having this data readily available in any circumstance.

Previously, our customers only had the option to self-host the system, meaning they were vulnerable to local performance issues and restricted by policies and procedures of other systems being used.

Common issues when creating a Rota and how Rotamaster can save you time!

You have two options. Martyrdom; work is busy and you can continue and hope to recover naturally, OR you can book an appointment with your local GP. The likelihood of your work schedule and your GP’s availability marrying up are somewhat slim. Taking time out isn’t an option, so …you battle on.
