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

Organisations can spend hours creating excel or paper based rotas, trying to create a rota that fits in with all their staff’s different working arrangements and also gives employees a fair proportion of shifts. Just when you think you have finally completed the task, there is ALWAYS one member of staff who wants to do a last minute shift swap or book some annual leave. A manager is left with the headache of changes to the rota and numerous emails with corrections. And let’s not mention the issues when somebody rings in sick!

At RotaMaster we understand that creating your staff rota can be hugely time consuming, so we are constantly developing our system to save you time and effort.
