Our “Start-Up Wizard” will have you ready to start writing your first schedule within minutes. The “Start-Up Wizard” takes care of all the complicated setup tasks for you, so that you can get up and running on day one.
In addition to creating schedules, Zip Schedules also allow you to save favorite schedules as templates so that you can quickly formulate a new schedule suitable to your needs. If there are minor changes within the week, you can also tweak a previous week’s schedule to create a new one. Save time on common tasks required to create a schedule by dropping the shifts into employee slots rather than creating a new one each time.
Manage Schedule Requests
Zip Schedules helps you handle the requests of employees. To make it easier on you, Zip Schedules shows when employees are available, when they’re requesting time off or a shift swap, and when a shift is open. Approve or disapprove these requests with one click.
Zip Schedules sends employees their schedule the minute it is published. This allows managers to take immediate action when employees accept future shifts offered by coworkers, or when they take time off and their availability changes. This cloud-based scheduling software further helps team communication, keeping employees informed of any important news or alerts by sending organization and store wide messages. Zip Schedules also respects employee confidentiality by using a closed loop mobile communication between employees without sharing email addresses and telephone numbers to the staff.
Mobile Apps for iPhone and Android
Do you need to manage your schedule on the go? No problem, Zip Schedules has a free mobile app for both iPhone and Android. Offer open shifts and make changes to the schedule directly from your smartphone or tablet.
Forecasting and Budgeting
Zip Schedules’ forecasting engine gives you the ability to predict your business based on sales and transactions. This provides you with information needed to better schedule employees, which will prevent over scheduling and under scheduling.
Labor Law Reminders
We want to protect you, and Zip Schedules does that by taking labor laws into consideration when building your team schedules. Having the system be aware of labor laws will prevent you from accidentally scheduling someone for too many hours or from starting them too early in the day.
Zip Schedules can save any schedule as a template to use for special events, holidays, promotions, etc. Once a template is saved, you can load it at anytime to reuse. This saves you time by not requiring you to create a brand new schedule every time, and quick changes can be made by easily editing them.
Manage all sites in one place. With Zip Schedules, you can manage all organization sites through your account, and add more sites as you grow. If you have an employee scheduled at multiple sites, it will be clearly displayed on the schedule.
Zip Schedules is offered in multiple languages. Choose to use Zip Schedules in English, Spanish, French, Italian, German or Chinese.
